    ‘Game of Thrones’ Author George R. R. Martin’s Superhero Anthology, ‘Wild Cards,’ Optioned by Syfy Films | /Film

    Sorry to go post heavy about this but each article seems to be unearthing more news. I am very interested in this and I hope there are a few out there who share that.

    Syfy Films exec Gregory Novek says,


    This is, beyond Marvel and DC, really the only universe where you have fully realized, fully integrated characters that have been built and developed over the course of 25 years… The trick for us is to find what’s the best movie.

    All we know is that Syfy Films was set up to make movies on a much smaller budget than that of the typical tentpole. So this won’t likely lead to a series of giant superhero movies to compete with stuff from Marvel and Warner Bros. That could be a good thing, though, as the smaller budgets could allow for more storytelling risks than we see from the big superhero films.

    I remember my dad used to love these books and would tell me I should read them, but I never did.

    James Mangold Calls ‘The Wolverine’ A Dark Character Piece Like Eastwood’s ‘The Outlaw Josey Wales’ > The Playlist

    “You could actually just tell a story about this amazing character from the start, just the way they do when you really read a comic,” Mangold said via telephone Friday. “You don’t have to spend the first hour saying how they were born; you can actually just find them in an emotional space, in the middle of action, and what happens is you’re not crowded with cutting to nine other action heroes. You can really make a movie about this dude.”
    Mangold also said he was keenly aware of the conventions of the genre he would be exploring, and felt he’s been able to turn it into a more unique story than most other superhero movies demand. “I think part of the reason I’m doing this picture has been because it isn’t to me a conventional superhero movie. It isn’t an origin story, so I’m freed from that burden, and it also isn’t a save-the-world movie, which most of them are. It’s actually a character piece; I actually think it has more in common with ‘The Outlaw Josey Wales’ and ‘Chinatown,’ what we’re doing, than the conventional, ‘will Wolverine and his compatriots save the world from this thermonuclear device’ question.”

    Following the success of the first “Wolverine,” fans speculated – and in fact hoped - that the second film would examine the comic book story lines written by Chris Claremont, in which Wolverine spent time in Japan. Mangold said that he wants to take advantage of those fish-out-of-water opportunities, and then combine them with storytelling, and of course, action sequences which maximize the influence of the world around the characters. “I think that this movie is much more an intense psychological and action-packed character piece, that’s much more about Logan getting lost in this very unique and insulated world of Japanese culture, gangster culture, and ninja culture,” he said. “The fighting is going to be unique because it’s all influenced by Japanese martial arts.”
    I've still got some hope for this. Even if just a little bit.

    David Slade To Direct Adaptation Of Crime Noir Graphic Novel ‘Coward’ That Sounds A Lot Like ‘Drive’ > The Playlist

    The first in a potential franchise, with a sequel already being planned, Slade will direct “Coward,” the first in Ed Brubaker‘s award winning “Criminal” series that centers on Leo, a professional pickpocket, legendary heist-planner and thief. However, just like Driver, he doesn’t use guns, only does jobs on his terms but of course, one job in particular finds those rules going out the window. And it’s not just us making the comparison, as Brubaker himself says Ryan Gosling would have been ideal for the movie were it not for a certain Nicolas Winding Refn film.

    “If Ryan Gosling hadn’t already been in ‘Drive,’ he’d be perfect,” Brubaker told Variety. “It’s a good role for any actor; about a guy who’s afraid to do things because of what’s inside of him. It’s a heist story, partly—it’s a lot of different crime stories wrapped in one, but heist stories are always exciting if they’re pulled off correctly.”

    Making those associations with “Drive” certainly raises the stakes, but Slade is confident in the material which he says has “a gritty reality to it, but there’s a kind of underworld haze of noir.” Noir? Heists? Yeah, we’re interested, but let’s hope it has something fresh to say in a genre that is overrun with also-rans. No word yet on when this will lens but it seems to be Slade’s likeliest next effort mostly because everything else seems to be stuck at the moment.
    The comic is great, but... I have my doubts about Slade. We'll see.

    At the Long Beach Comic Con, Darwyn Cooke and IDW announced that the planned four book adaptations of the remarkably influential Parker heist novels by Richard Starks, will expand to five titles.

    Currently, Cooke is working on the third of his adaptations, The Score, in which Parker puts a team together to rob an entire town.
    Kick. Ass.
