WB snags Duncan Jones for WARCRAFT movie!

It looks like the new CEO at WB is finally moving those long-forgotten projects along! The Hollywood Reporter claims that WB has signed Duncan Jones (MOON, SOURCE CODE) to direct the film adaptation of WARCRAFT. They also have their eyes on Johnny Depp to star in the movie. Fans have been eagerly awaiting news on WARCRAFT ever since it was announced over five years ago, and now there is finally a light at the end of the tunnel. Even if WB puts some steam on the production, I wouldn’t except the movie to come out until 2015 at the earliest.


Two indy comic-book films coming, plus CHILD 44 news!

Two independent comic book properties and a debut novel are being developed and adapted for the big screen. The first is titled PYONGYANG, named after the capital of the North Korea, and it has quite the interesting background:

Pyongyang documents Guy Delisle’s experiences in Pyongyang, the capital of North Korea, where he stayed for two months. Acting as the liaison between a French animation producing company and the SEK Studio (Scientific Educational Korea) company, he struggles with the difficulties of outsourcing and the bureaucracy of the totalitarian closed state.

PIRATES director Gore Verbinski has been signed to direct the film.

Also on slate for development by producer Ridley Scott is MIND MGMT, by Matt Kindt:

The story centers on Henry Lime, a powerful psychic and former government agent who, with the help of an author named Meru, investigates the agency from whence he came.

And speaking of Ridley Scott, he is also in the process of developing CHILD 44, with Tom Hardy and Noomi Rapace in talks to star. The attached director is Daniel Espinosa, most recently known for 2012’s suprise hit, SAFE HOUSE. Here’s the synopsis:

Child 44 follows a member of the Soviet police who, while investigating a series of child murders, finds himself the target of his own government’s suspicions. Hardy will play the Soviet officer while Rapace will play his wife, who pretends to be doting partner but is concealing many thoughts and feelings.

I’ve personally read this one and it is a nail biter. It’s SILENCE OF THE LAMBS meets 1984. Having such a great creative team behind it gives me pretty high hopes for a successful movie. Tom Hardy seems to be the busiest bee in Hollywood these days. He just wrapped MAD MAX: FURY ROAD, he has signed on for the role of Sam Fisher in SPLINTER CELL and is rumored to be involved in the new JACK RYAN trilogy as John Clark.

Danny Boyle’s TRANCE hits theaters April 5

The man behind such films as 28 DAYS LATER, TRAINSPOTTING and SLUMDOG MILLIONAIRE is bringing his film to the big screen on April 5, 2013. Boyle, who most recently directed the skit for the Opening Ceremonies of the London Summer Olympics, has a particular knack for visually gripping and mind-bending films. Here’s the synopsis of Trance:

Simon (James McAvoy), a fine art auctioneer, teams up with a criminal gang to steal a Goya painting worth millions of dollars, but after suffering a blow to the head during the heist he awakens to discover he has no memory of where he hid the painting. When physical threats and torture fail to produce answers, the gang’s leader Frank (Vincent Cassel) hires hypnotherapist Elizabeth Lamb (Rosario Dawson) to delve into the darkest recesses of Simon’s psyche. As Elizabeth begins to unravel Simon’s broken subconscious, the line between truth, suggestion, and deceit begin to blur.
