Boborci Says Initial Prep Work For STAR TREK Sequel Is Based On 70+ Page Outline - Full Script Pending Abrams' Feedback!!
Ain't It Cool News: The best in movie, TV, DVD, and comic book news.
Boobytrap will NOT be amused.Producer/scripter Roberto Orci - known to Talkbackers 'round these here parts as 'Boborci' - offered TrekMovie an update regarding the status of the script for the TREK sequel.
Here's a slightly abridged quote from Orci, which appeared TrekMovie message boards...
Just been waiting for JJ to be free to really decide if he likes the story and hear his suggestions before we finish the script. Once he says go, we’ll have it in no time. Meanwhile, our outline is detailed enough (70+ pages!) to do some prep
Orci's follow e-mail to TrekMovie continues the thought...
In the meetings we’ve had with JJ, he’s already given us amazing input and ideas, and that’s been while he’s been up to his eyeballs in Super 8.
Although J.J. Abrams has not formally committed to direct the long-in-development STAR TREK sequel, it's widely presumed he will do so. Abrams has recently indicated that more formal announcements regarding the project should be coming soon.
Rumor: Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro to Reunite for THE COMEDIAN?
Let’s keep this one in the rumor mill for now, but it’s possible that Martin Scorsese and Robert De Niro could reunite for The Comedian. Showbiz411 reports that producer Art Linson co-wrote a script with comedian Jeffrey Ross about an insult comic who’s described as a cross between Don Rickles and Joan River. According to Showbiz411, Linson would like Scorsese to direct. I bet he would. I bet producers the world over would like Scorsese to direct their movie as well. If the project were to move forward (and that’s a big “If”), it would draw an obvious comparison to Scorsese and De Niro’s 1982 film The King of Comedy, even though the characters sound very different.
The reason this all sounds slightly dubious (or at least incredibly hopeful on the part of Linson) is that Scorsese has a wealth of other projects he could choose.
Tempting to start a new thread, but... we'll wait for it to graduate.
Early Buzz: Jonathan Levine’s ’50/50′ – “If It Wasn’t So Funny, And Occasionally Crude, I’d Call This An Oscar Contender”
Yeah, that's Seth Rogen and Jospeh-Gordon Levitt.
Dat cast!50/50 (originally titled I’m With Cancer) is an autobiographical story based on the experiences of Will Reiser, a producer on HBO’s Da Ali G Show and VH1′s Best Week Ever. Joseph Gordon-Levitt stars as Adam, a 27-year-old who is diagnosed with cancer, and his sometimes funny “struggle to beat the disease.” The film, funded with Summit Entertainment’s giant pile of Twilight money, co-stars Seth Rogen, Anna Kendrick, Bryce Dallas Howard and Anjelica Huston. 50/50 won’t hit theaters until September 30th 2011, probably after a film festival run. We should see a trailer next week.
