    David Foster Preparing to Pitch New ‘Star Trek’ Series

    In an interview (via What Culture) at the 2011 Star Trek Convention in Las Vegas, Foster explained that he began developing the project, code-named “S.E.T.I.,” in 2006 with Kevin Severson. Severson, sadly, died of a stroke last year, but Foster’s continued working on their idea. It seems Foster’s already done quite a bit in terms of fleshing out the concept:

    The series concept is fully developed, subject to change of course, with a solid 5-7 year series plan, pilot script and a conceptualized finale that intends to define Star Trek for generations, extensive character bios, costume and ship/set designs, and more. This is a drastic departure from the typical 8-10 page treatment of the previously pitched Star Trek series ideas that have not included even a pilot script.

    Foster envisions his series as a return to Roddenberry’s original concept. “[W]hile Star Trek has moved on with other series that were not exactly in line with Gene’s original vision, the roots are there to tap into,” he said. Don’t expect something too old-fashioned, though — Foster also lists Joss Whedon, Ron Moore, Manny Coto, and J. Michael Straczynski as his inspirations on his site.

    Timeline-wise, the new series will very definitely be moving forward. The show will take place in the post-Voyager era, and will remain faithful to pre-2009 canon as well as Star Trek: Enterprise canon. (Since Abrams’ 2009 film took place in an alternate timeline, Foster’s story would not be in conflict with Abrams’.)

    Jessica Chastain, Olivia Wilde, Noomi Rapace, Brit Marling and Olga Kurylenko Testing Opposite Tom Cruise for OBLIVION, Now Titled HORIZONS

    Just last week we reported that a shortlist of actresses were set to test opposite Tom Cruise for his action flick One Shot. Now another set of leading ladies are poised to test opposite Cruise for a different project, Joseph Kosinskiís (Tron: Legacy) sci-fi film Horizons. Showblitz reports that Jessica Chastain, Olivia Wilde, Noomi Rapace, Brit Marling and Olga Kurylenko are the thesps vying that will vie the role this Saturday. Additionally, Universal has scrapped the title Oblivion and is now referring to the project by its former working title Horizons for the time being.

    The story takes place in an apocalyptic future that finds humans living in clouds above the uninhabitable Earth, and Cruise plays a soldier relegated to staying on the planet to work on drones that seek out and destroy a savage alien life form. Hit the jump for more information on the contending actresses.
    Uh oh Adgy, with Wilde and Rapace(and even)Kurylenko on the list it's a veritable Sophie's Choice for you kid...

    David Goyer Wants to Give THE INVISIBLE MAN the SHERLOCK HOLMES Treatment

    David Goyer has been attached to remake The Invisible Man since 2007. To give you an idea of how long that is in movie years, in 2008 Steve interviewed Goyer and got details on The Invisible Man and the Magneto prequel. The Magneto prequel was eventually woven into this year’s X-Men: First Class. But The Invisible Man is still alive and “working its way through the Universal development channels.” Disconcertingly, Goyer tells Hero Complex that his take on H.G. Wells’ original 1897 story way (which was adapted by James Whale in 1933 and starred Claude Raines) would expand the mythology of the character (ugh). Hit the jump for the full quote from Goyer and why I find it disappointing.

    Goyer tells Hero Complex:


    “It’s a period film but it’s period like Downey’s ’Sherlock Holmes,’” said Goyer, whose writing credits include “The Dark Knight” and the upcoming “Man of Steel” project that will put Superman back on the big screen. “It’s period but it’s a reinvention of the character in the sort of way that Stephen Sommers exploded ‘The Mummy’ into a much bigger kind of mythology. That’s kind of what we’ve done with ‘The Invisible Man.’”

    This is what Goyer is citing as his inspirations: Guy Ritchie’s Sherlock Holmes and Stephen Sommers’ The Mummy. And to an extent, I understand why he’s citing those movies. If The Invisible Man is still churning through development hell, then maybe comparing it to those successful movies can get it into production. But the trade off is that it does have to be modernized. Additionally, Goyer doesn’t mention what this new version would do thematically or from a storytelling perspective. Is it a comment on something? Is it trying to compare the ideas of Wells’ original novel to the present day? Or is he simply on his way to rediscovering why Hollow Man flopped or repeating his own failed invisible protagonist flick, The Invisible?
    Wow...this is a character fit to be mined. Not sure if it's in the right hands. And btw, Hollow Man was a bad ass dirty little flick.

    Brit Marling, Jessica Chastain, Olivia Wilde, Noomi Rapace & Olga Kurylenko Testing For ‘Oblivion’ > The Playlist

    Cruise is going big, returning to the genre that served him well in “War Of The Worlds” and “Vanilla Sky” with Joseph Kosinki‘s “Horizon,” formerly titled “Oblivion,” and its currently casting two lovely ladies with the opportunity to seduce the practicing Thetan.

    There are two major female roles in “Horizon”—which makes it unusual for a big budget tentpole release, a sad commentary itself. Up for these roles is a predictable who’s-who list of top (white) female talent that includes Brit Marling, Olivia Wilde, Jessica Chastain, Noomi Rapace and Olga Kurylenko. One of the roles is for the character Julia, the fiancee of Cruise’s Jack who, we’re guessing, is glimpsed in flashback from before a cataclysmic alien invasion. The other, likely more action-intensive part is for Victoria, Jack’s post-apocalypse right-hand woman, who watches Jack’s back as he goes on missions in a war-torn Earth to repair drones that keep humanity alive.
