More interest for a #JohnCarter tv series?

That's what says Jim Sullos anyway, president of ERB inc, in the l'article linked below. The recent financial failure of John Carter seems to paralyze movie producers, even if they still show interest in the property. "There may be more interest in a television series than a sequel to the film." Nothing official yet of course, The rights for a live-action or animated adaptation are still available. http://www.sfvbj.com/news/2015/jul/24/preview-mars-or-bust/

The petition for #JohnCarter 2 available again!

For a few weeks the petition for John Carter 2 had been closed. Did it reach a 3-years limit after it was launched? Whatever the reason, it's now accessible again for whomever is willing to sign it, it can't hurt! We're currently at 13,338 signatures + 1,960 gathered from conventions at the beginning of the campaign in 2012, so a sum of 15,298. Let's hope this amount goes flying in the next months, who knows? "We still live." ... [Lire la suite]

Kerry Conran's demo reel for #JohnCarter of Mars in HD

Between the first attempt at an adaptation in 1936 and the one finally released in 2012, John Carter knew quite a few false starts. Juste before Disney bought the rights again, those were at Paramount. Robert Rodriguez was supposed to direct the movie in the beginning. A friend of Harry Knowles, the founder of the famous Aint'It Cool News website, and knowing about his passion for "A Princess of Mars", he made him hired as a consultant/co-producer. Rodriguez left the project... because of Sin City. He wanted Frank Miller to be... [Lire la suite]

John Carter: the best videos on Youtube

First thing first, the trailers made by the awesome Michael D. Sellers, great admirer of Edgar Rice Burroughs and independent Hollywood filmmaker. Conscious of the abysmal weakness of the marketing campaign, he took upon himself to recut the official material, in these videos: The trailer that made Andrew Stanton write: "they get it"! https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-BxeHQY1NuM John Carter of Mars trailer : https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tSDHNMRQ2a8 The "Heritage" trailer that highlights the fact that John Carter inspired quite...

Neuromancer: abandoned concept arts of the Vincenzo Natali version

In the link below you can see pictures shared by Vincenzo Natali about four abandoned projects he worked on: first the adaptation of Neuromancer, with a representation of the breaking program used in the Matrix by Case, a vision of Night City, 4 pages from the script, Maelcum, one of the pilots that lead the heroes towards their goal in orbit, The Sense-Net Pyramid, infiltrated by Molly in the novel, and another landscape shot I can't identify, perhaps when Wintermute attempts to trap Case in the Matrix towards the end! The... [Lire la suite]

Neuromancer: good news, bad news!

The good news is that financing is at least in place! The article linked below reports that the Chinese company C2M Media Group allied with the British GFM Films. The bad news is that the project starts again from scratch. Vincenzo Natali left the project. We knew for a while that he was no longer attached to direct, but it seems that his screenplay won't be used either. The names of Mark Whalberg and Liam Neeson had been evoked at the time. At one point there were talks for having the Corean director Park... [Lire la suite]

Supergirl on CBS : super-first look!

As far as I'm concerned, Superman in live-action has been a catastrophy for years now. Between a Superman Returns that transforms its main character into a moping peeping-tom who stalks his former girlfriend, to a Smallville that doesn't want to assume the character, and a Man of Steel which just gives the urge to hang oneself before the adventures of this guy that voluntarily let his adoptive father die like a dog, the least which can be said is that the character was not at all served well in recent times. The... [Lire la suite]
