So, Marvel is clearly not staffed by idiots. While they have gone cheap with directors in the past, you knew that they would pay what it takes to hold onto Joss Whedon for The Avengers 2… and now it’s official. Now, the real question is whether the director of the third biggest film of all time will develop some James Cameron-sized megalomania to go along with his fatter bank account. Rumors that he’s going to slyly shape The Avengers 2 into another Firefly movie are as of yet unsubstantiated.
Where have I seen that ship before?
Todd Field doesn’t shy away from disturbing subject matter, which has only worked to his advantage in In the Bedroom and Little Children. For his next project he might have found the perfect actor to work with- Christian Bale. In The Creed of Violence he’ll play one of two leads- either a killer for hire or a government agent- as they bury themselves in the Mexican criminal underworld… of 1910. Seems to be right up both of their alleys.
Expect some gloriously ratty facial hair is what I’m sayin’
Ah, WoW. You’re still very much a thing, aren’t you? It’s been awhile both since I’ve devoted an ounce of thought to the game and since Hollywoodhas, apparently, but here it is again. Blizzard has moved on from Sam Raimi and handed over the project to writer Charles Leavitt (Blood Diamond) to make of it as he wills, but I wouldn’t hold my breath waiting for the epic saga of Leeroy Jenkins to hit the big screen anytime soon.
Still the most gripping WoW narrative I’ve ever come across
