Katee Sackhoff and Jordi Molla Hunt Down Vin Diesel in RIDDICK
This might be good if they can get it done before anymore production shut downs due to payroll issues.
If Katee Sackhoff is in it, I guess I'll have to go and see it.
From Fox's official press release:
"Avatar's evil brother, Blackwolf, dominates Scortch, a bleak land of goblins and wraiths. When the power-hungry Blackwolf attacks Montagar [a rainbow paradise inhabited by elves and fairies], Avatar, accompanied only by a spirited young woman and a courageous elf, must enter the darkness of Scortch to save his world."
Fox's 35th Anniversary Edition Blu-ray presents the film in its 1.85:1 original aspect ratio with a 5.1 DTS-HD Master Audio track. The Digibook release also contains the following supplements:
Digibook packaging has 24-pages of artwork, some never-before-seen
Special message from Bakshi
Wizards is expected to street on March 13th.
OH HELL YEAH!!!!! My DVD is so faulty. Cannot wait.
Yeah, I haven't seen that **** since it was on LaserDisc!
I read recently that Jim Starlin worked on this movie, too. I think he was in the animation dept.
It's really kind of cheesy...you may be shocked by how raw and childish it is if you haven't seen it for a bit, still...Now we just need a criterion of Fritz the Cat or American Pop.
Deborah Harkness' A Discovery Of Witches To Be Adapted By David Auburn - CinemaBlend.com
Though it was an inevitability, the end of the Harry Potter franchise has left a void over at Warner Bros. Over the last decade the studio could rely on the boy wizard to bring in hundreds of millions of dollars at the international and domestic box office and now they are on the hunt for the next big thing. According to Variety, they think they might have found it with A Discovery of Witches, which not only has magical characters, but has them doing battle with the other favorite mythical being of the moment: vampires.
Though the rights to Deborah Harkness' novel were purchased last summer, it is only now that David Auburn has been brought on to adapt it into a movie. Auburn's previous work includes the 2005 John Madden film Proof (which was based on a play that he wrote) and 2006's The Lake House. The story centers on a witch who is the direct descendant of "the first woman executed in the Salem Witch trials." After accidentally unlocking a manuscript, she finds herself working to prevent a war from breaking out between witches and vampires. Denise Di Novi and Allison Greenspan are both signed on as producers.
Released just last year, A Discovery of Witches is actually the first book in a planned trilogy, so there is potential for Warner Bros. to turn this into a legitimate franchise. Harkness' novel has done extremely well, debuting at #2 on the New York Times Best Seller list, being named one of the best books of February 2011 by Amazon, and selling in at least 34 countries. If they do it right, this could very well be the perfect stopgap.
I don't remember much about Wizards except watching it in class and the kids getting a laugh when the f bomb was dropped. It was a simpler time then.
