I Can’t Draw Something Cause I Can’t Draw At All But I Can Update You On Film & TV

  • Errol Morris has a new target for a documentary – Donald Rumsfeld
  • Hells Yes! Make That Happen!
  • Greg Mottola (Superbad) and Campbell Scott hare working on a new comedy film script
  • Still not convinced on Greg Mottola – Adventureland was coma inducing and Paul was really underwhelming
  • Michael Fassbender (Prometheus) has joined THE MOUNTAIN BETWEEN US
  • ..and the spire between his legs – see SHAME
  • Spike Lee’s boxing drama DA BRICK has been canned at HBO
  • Production sounded too urban and rough neck african american for the budget required
  • Mark Mothersbaugh has been hired to score the LEGO MOVIE
  • LEGO movie! Awesome!
  • Olivia Wilde, Jason Sudiekis and Brie Larson have all joined the comedy RELANXIOUS
  • Does this mean there’s a CHILLAXIN, TOTES, AMAZEBALLS movie quadrilogy in the works?? NOO!!
  • Tom Six says THE HUMAN CENTIPEDE 3 will feature a 500 person centipede in it
  • Dear…. God.
  • MANDRAKE THE MAGICIAN is coming to the big screen over at Warner Bros
  • My money is on either JON HAMM or MICHAEL FASSBENDER for the title role.
  • THE BRAZILIAN JOB, the sequel to THE ITALIAN JOB, is no longer getting made
  • Assembling that cast again, plus on location shooting, that budget would hit near $150-$200m. No deal.
  • THE TOPKAPI AFFAIR, the long gestating sequel to THE THOMAS CROWN AFFAIR, is dead in the water and not happening.
  • The original was a modest performer but nothing to write home about
  • INSIDE MAN 2, the follow up to INSIDE MAN, has been canned after a terrible script was turned in and Universal lost interest
  • It’s been a long time since the original – would a sequel really make a difference?
  • JUMPER 2 ain’t jumping anywhere anytime soon
  • Hayden Christiansen and Sammie J – the original wasn’t the hit FOX hoped for, it’s fun but throwaway
  • WANTED 2, even though the original was a hit the sequel has been on again off again for ages, screenwriters have been hired but it’s doubtful this will happen.
  • WANTED was a hit but trades suggest the tracking on who loved the original doesn’t go much past 14 year old boys
  • SILENT HILL 2: REVELATION 3D is in post production.
  • Christophe Gans original did $55m worldwide and whilst critically panned it was an atmosphere and production design success. A big fanboy hit too.
  • GROWN UPS 2, the sequel to the hit Adam Sandler comedy, is happening
  • Sandler’s highest grossing comedy to date – a sequel was pretty much inevitable even though Sandler histrocally has never done them.
  • JOHN CARTER 2 looks highly unlikely given the astronomical budget and modest returns of the launch episode
  • JOHN CARTER has sent shockwaves through all the major studios on their big budget tentpoles – everyone is really watching their budgets and looking at new models for film productions. FOX’s model on the 24 film is a good example of trying to reign in spiralling costs where the risk becomes so great.
  • Asghar Farhadi (A Separation) is off to do a french language film
  • May this man have a long and spectacular career – A SEPARATION is sensational.
