Wow. This looks SO horribly sacharrine cutesey that I threw up in my mouth a little. Then again that may have been because of the glut of Julia Roberts seahorse face in the trailer.
Rhys Ifans and Anna Friel NEVERLAND Interview
Advance word on this is pretty iffy, but Ifans is one of those guys that is always worth watching.From writer/director Nick Willing (Alice, Tin Man), Neverland – premiering on SyFy on December 4th and 5th – is an original prequel story to author J.M. Barrie’s classic Peter Pan. In 19th Century London, Peter (Charlie Rowe) and his young pickpocket pals are sent out by their mentor Jimmy Hook (Rhys Ifans) to steal a magical orb, which inadvertently transports them all to another world, called Neverland. This mysterious realm includes the power-mad Elizabeth Bonny (Anna Friel) and her band of 18th Century pirates, trapped and in search of the secret to the tree spirits’ magical mineral dust, in order to have the power to fly. As the fight to protect and save this strange and beautiful world escalates, Peter and his crew must face harsh realities, as they learn that never growing up might be preferable to growing up like the corrupt Hook.
During a recent interview to promote the SyFy debut of Neverland, co-stars Rhys Ifans and Anna Friel talked about how they came to be playing such captivating characters, how thrilling it was to be a part of this new backstory, showing the evolution of the Peter and Hook relationship, and what they enjoy most about working in the fantasy genre. Check out what they had to say after the
Am I the only one that's noticed that the Disney cartoons have really gotten...for lack of a better term...wussified since 1990?
I remember the old movies like Snow White, Sword in teh Stone where there were parts that scared the bejeebus out of me when I was a little mark1178.
No wonder why kids are whiners today, they don't get to crap their pants out of fear until they turn 40.
Dorothy and the Witches of Oz: New Title, New Stills, New Release Date | Horror Movie, DVD, & Book Reviews, News, Interviews at Dread Central
Interesting. Kinda flew under the radar. Probably a glorified 'b' movie, but that cast is pretty good and just to see Christopher LLoyd as the wizard should be worth it.It’s been awhile since there’s been any news regarding Leigh Scott’s Dorothy and the Witches of Oz (formerly just Witches of Oz), but now comes word that the dark fantasy featuring the likes of Lance Henriksen, Jeffrey Combs, Mia Sara, Billy Boyd, Sean Astin, and Christopher Lloyd as “The Wizard of Oz” is getting a limited US theatrical release this February.
Dorothy and the Witches of Oz follows the exploits of the grown Dorothy Gale (Paulie Rojas), now a successful children's book author, as she moves from Kansas to present day New York City. Dorothy quickly learns that her popular books are based on repressed childhood memories, and that the wonders of Oz are very, very real. When the Wicked Witch of the West shows up in Times Square, Dorothy must find the inner courage to stop her.
Though Witches of Oz has already received a DVD release in the UK and been released in a longer mini-series format in parts of Europe, Palace/Imaginarium have given the film a minor title change and will be giving a feature-length cut of the film with upgraded special effects a theatrical run in February with an American DVD release to follow. A new trailer reflecting these changes is due to hit the web shortly after the New Year.
Until then, here are some new production stills from Dorothy and the Witches of Oz.
Tim Burton Out, Robert Stromberg In For Angelina Jolie’s Maleficent | Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors
For a while, Tim Burton was going to direct Maleficent, the topsy-turvy take on Sleeping Beauty that will refocus on the evil queen and let the docile blonde get on with sawing logs. Coming after Alice in Wonderland it would have been his second revision of an old Disney toon, as well as his second collaboration with screenwriter Linda Woolverton.
But Burton passed, and it was up to Angelina Jolie to keep the project afloat. She’s been attached to star pretty much from day one, and still is. I can see why it’s an attractive role – just like Cleopatra, who she may be playing soon for David Fincher, or the action heroine in a Luc Besson film, which Ms. Jolie also has on her dance card.
Deadline report that her new director on the film is to be Robert Stromberg, making his directorial debut. Recently, he served as a production designer on Avatar, Oz: The Great and Powerful and… Alice in Wonderland. He’s also got over twenty years of FX credits under his belt, mainly in a visual design and matte painting capacity. In short: he’s going to know a lot of ways to conjure up a fantasy world, and that’s going to be a key skill set here.
I only hope he’s also got the chops when it comes to staging and editing scenes, working with actors and threading the narrative along. Time will tell.
