‘League Of Extraordinary Gentlemen’ Reboot In Development At 20th Century Fox

The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen

Over a decade after their first attempt failed miserably (and made Sean Connery quit acting forever), 20th Century Fox is taking another crack at turning Alan Moore and Kevin O’Neill‘s classic comic book series The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen into a movie and possible franchise.

The studio has brought on John Davis – whose credits include Predator, Waterworld, I, Robot, and Chronicle – to produce the feature through his company Davis Entertainment. Also overseeing the reboot will be Ira Napoliello and Matt Reilly.

Knight Rider, Vol. 1 isn’t like any other Knight Rider you’ve seen before, and I mean that in the best of ways. Knight Rider is one of the few “cult classic” 1980s television series that hasn’t been turned into a comic series. That is, until now. Was it worth the wait? Let’s find out…

Streaming Review: Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey Of Richard Stanley’s Island Of Dr. Moreau

Lost Soul

Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley’s Island of Dr. Moreau
Amazon Instant Video
Directed by David Gregory
Starring Richard Stanley, Fairuza Balk, Marco Hofschneider, and Rob Morrow
Severin Films
Not Rated | Running Time: 97 Minutes
Release Date: February 27, 2015

Twenty years ago, the visionary South African filmmaker Richard Stanley, adored by cult and horror audiences around the world for his uncompromising features Hardware and Dust Devil, ventured into a lush, remote region of Australia to make a film version of a book he had cherished since his youth: The Island of Dr. Moreau, by H.G. Wells. The finished film was released in the summer of 1996, the time when the alien invasion blockbuster Independence Day ruled the box office, but what audiences saw was radically different from what Stanley set out to make. That’s because he didn’t direct a single frame of the film.

The more experienced journeyman John Frankenheimer (Ronin, The Manchurian Candidate) was called in to replaced Stanley only a few days into principal photography for reasons that have since become legend. David Gregory‘s new documentary Lost Soul: The Doomed Journey of Richard Stanley’s Island of Dr. Moreau aims to tell as much of the horrific story behind the operatic unmaking of Stanley’s grandiose and grotesque vision for the latest cinematic iteration of the classic Wells novel as the living participants are willing to recall.

Mad Max Video Game

A month ago we got our first real preview of the gameplay of Mad Max, an upcoming video game from Just Cause developer Avalanche Studios.

You see, the land itself is not only worthless, it’s toxic – a barrel of radioactive waste has washed ashore and turned the island’s harmless ants into monstrous creatures with a taste for human flesh.
