The new JUDGE DREDD movie also stars Olivia Thirlby as Cassandra Anderson and is shooting in 3D.

Said producers Andrew Macdonald and Allon Reich of the new film:

“The main thing about Dredd is that it’s a fantastic comic that was completely messed up 20 years ago,” said Macdonald. “Our idea is to make a very hard, R-rated, gritty, realistic movie of Dredd in Megacity, so we’ve got to get the tone right. He’s not going to take off his helmet. His bike is going to feel real. He’s going to hit people and it’s going to feel real.”

…He referred to the movie as a “one-off,” and he emphasized that the film isn’t a sequel in any conventional sense.

‘X-MEN ORIGINS: WOLVERINE’ was utter shit but you really gotta hand it to HUGH JACKMAN. That he seems to love the character is of little doubt – and that’s a refreshing change of pace taking into consideration a Marvel property like HULK.

Bringing Aronofky on board shows that Jackman wants to make the Wolverine movie we all want to see. Now let’s see if they can deliver.

Caprica is toast. Syfy has announced that the low-rated Battlestar Galactica prequel has been canceled.

Said Mark Stern, EVP of Original Programming at Syfy:

“Unfortunately, despite its obvious quality, Caprica has not been able to build the audience necessary to justify a second season.”

This will not have any effect on the announcement a couple days back about the newly greenlit ‘BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: BLOOD & CHROME’. SyFy probably timed the cancellation as a good news/bad news thing for BSG fans and RONALD D. MOORE.

TOM HARDY


Source: Deadline.com

[Tom] Hardy [STAR TREK: NEMESIS] has been set by his INCEPTION director CHRIS NOLAN for a lead role in the next Batman film at Warner Bros.

Insiders are keeping the role secret and won’t even say if he’s up for a villain role, but that seems a reasonable assumption.

Read more HERE.

Tom Hardy was solid in INCEPTION, had an icy presence as the foil to CAPTAIN PICARD in the STAR TREK: NEMESIS movie and has already been cast as the lead in the upcoming MAD MAX remake/reboot; MAD MAX: FURY ROAD. Watching him go head to head with CHRISTIAN BALE in a third NOLAN directed BATMAN movie sounds very interesting indeed..
