    I swear to god if they make Snow Crash into a movie and it sucks, I'm going to end it all for whoever made it. And the author of that article is right...it'd be a you one to adapt.

    That's a neat little list, though. I've read a couple of those books, but the rest piques my sci fi loving interests.

    Anything worth shooting is worth shooting twice. Bullets are cheap. Life is priceless.

    Rare HR Giger Documentary Alien Makers 3 Is Online… For Now At Least | Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors

    he Alien Makers series of online documentaries by Dennis Lowe are must-watch videos for fans of the Alien series of movies, of which I’m addressing many, I’m sure.

    Lowe worked on FX on the original film, as well as Legend, Labyrinth and The Empire Strikes Back, and interviewed many of his collaborators on Alien for his documentaries.

    Most of the films can be streamed, or downloaded, from Lowe’s own website. Notably absent is Alien Makers 3, focusing on HR Giger and his incredible biomechanics designs.

    Apparently, Giger was unhappy with the end result and requested Lowe remove it, which he did. I can’t really see what Giger would object to… but then I don’t see things quite the same way as Giger anyway. Less sticky goop and sexy pipes.

    Today somebody has uploaded the 43-minute film to YouTube. I don’t know how long it will last, so you might want to get clicking now.
    All 5 parts there at the link.

    Henry Selick to Direct Adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s THE GRAVEYARD BOOK for Disney

    Disney has proffered a deal that will reunite author Neil Gaiman and director Henry Selick (Coraline) to bring The Graveyard Book to life. The best-selling children’s title drew attention from every major studio but Disney ultimately won out on the adaptation rights with a high six-figure bid. The Newbury Award-winning The Graveyard Book is a one-off take on Rudyard Kipling’s The Jungle Book which replaces the boy raised by wolves with a young orphan raised by ghosts in a graveyard. Those familiar with Gaiman’s other works (The Sandman comics, Stardust, American Gods) and, equally, those who were fans of Coraline will be happy to hear that The Graveyard Book is a high priority for Disney. Hit the jump for more.

    Deadline reported on Disney’s acquisition of The Graveyard Book as well as Selick’s attachment to direct. Selick, whose works also include The Nightmare Before Christmas and James and the Giant Peach, is currently manning a project for Pixar, but will pick The Graveyard Book up next. Check out a synopsis of Gaiman’s novel below:





    It takes a graveyard to raise a child.

    Nobody Owens, known as Bod, is a normal boy. He would be completely normal if he didn’t live in a graveyard, being raised by ghosts, with a guardian who belongs to neither the world of the living nor the dead. There are adventures in the graveyard for a boy—an ancient Indigo Man, a gateway to the abandoned city of ghouls, the strange and terrible Sleer. But if Bod leaves the graveyard, he will be in danger from the man Jack—who has already killed Bod’s family.
    I wanted to put this in ANIMATED...but even though Selick is attached there is no confirmation that it will be animated, yet.

    Eddie Izzard Talks TREASURE ISLAND and MUNSTERS Reboot MOCKINGBIRD LANE

    In a special, one-night-only movie event, taking place on May 5th, Syfy is airing the four-hour re-imagining of the classic tale, Treasure Island, featuring an all-star cast led by Eddie Izzard (as Long John Silver), Elijah Wood (as Ben Gunn) and Donald Sutherland (as Flint). In this version, directed by Steve Barron and written by Stewart Harcourt, Robert Louis Stevenson’s swashbuckling adventure story about fantastical treasure, youthful courage and murderous greed has a fresh, new feel. The film also stars Toby Regbo, Rupert Penry-Jones, Shirley Henderson and Nina Sosanya.


    Doesn't look terrible, and Izzard is always worth watching.

    Brad Bird And Damon Lindelof On The Team For 1952 | Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors

    Damon Lindelof has co-written and will produce 1952, a Disney project that the studio has recruited Brad Bird to direct.

    It’s not yet publicly known what the film will be about, but 1952 was a number of some significance in Lindelof’s Lost, apparently, so it might be a meaningless placeholder.

    Meanwhile, Bird has also been developing a film called 1906 about the San Francisco earthquake of guess-when. Perhaps 1952 is the same, just 46 louder.

    Whatever that means.

    Deadline say that the film, co-written by Jeff Jensen, will be a “big-scale tentpole film” and require quite a lot of prep time. Previous reports have pegged it as sci-fi with a PG-13 friendly concept.
