Exclusive: Frank Miller's Hard Boiled Being Adapted Into A Feature By Mukunda Michael Dewil - Bleeding Cool Comic Book, Movies and TV News and Rumors
I'm kind of amazed it's taken this long for someone to want to adapt that book. I think it'd translate well, in the right hands. Gonna miss that amazing Geof Darrow art, though.
What is? The adaptation? I am going to assume it isn't even a script he is talking about? So basically he is going to shop an outline of the comics to potential buyers???At the end of the conversation, talk turned to his ongoing and future projects, one of which, he told me, is an adaptation of Frank Miller and Geof Darrow‘s Hard Boiled.
I’m adapting Frank Miller’s comic book called Hard Boiled with Stephen L’Heureux from Solipsist films. They just did Sin City 2 and they own a lot of Frank’s comics. That’s a very big project that’s going be out to market in a couple of weeks… it’s quite a big deal. We’re kind of pumped for that.
Marvel’s shocking surprise: Thanos is on the cover of Infinity
Really hoping that Hickman gets Thanos and understands he's a more complex, nuanced character than he seems to be in all his appearances of late. That Thanos origin series coming out right now by Jason Aaron is pretty decent so far.The six-issue miniseries (which arrives in August) will set up a big cosmic battle to save earth and heralds the new “cosmic” style Marvel Universe in the movies. The story features The Inhumans leading the rest of the good guys of the universe in battle against Thanos and the minions of bad.
Inhumans you say?????
Karl Urban Says a DREDD Sequel Is
When speaking with Urban, Steve mentioned that there’s a passionate fanbase for Dredd out there and asked the actor if there’s any possibility of him reprising the role in a sequel:
“Interestingly enough, I did have breakfast with Alex Garland this morning. It’s not off the agenda. Clearly everyone has woken up to the fact that an audience has found this movie and loves it. It’s entirely possible, and if people want to see another installment then they should be vocal about that, because, it can happen. The power of fandom can resurrect projects. In fact, that’s what happened with Star Trek. They weren’t going to do a third season until fans did a letter writing campaign and they continued that series.”
The Dredd was already made on a rather low budget with regards to other comic book adaptations, but it’s feasible that the film finding a wider audience on Blu-ray and DVD could convince a studio to give it another go. As Urban notes, it’s up to Dredd fans to speak up and let the powers that be know that there is an audience out there clamoring for Dredd 2 to come to fruition, so start making moves people.
