Metal Gear Solid Header

If there were ever a video game franchise that needed to be adapted it would have to be Metal Gear Solid. Regardless of what you think of the quality of video game adapted films (most of the time they suck), studios keep churning them out, and no matter how sacred the franchise, studios see a property they like, they will turn it into a film.

But maybe things aren’t as bad as they seem. At a Metal Gear anniversary party, there was a banner that read “Metal Gear Solid Hollywood Movie” with the Columbia Pictures logo located right below it. Arad and Metal Gear creator Hideo Kojima were on hand to confirm the project, where they said they “will take our time and tell the story with all the nuances, ideology, cautionary tales needed.”

Marc Webb

The success of The Amazing Spider-Man has paved the way for Sony to turn the film into a trilogy. This could not have happened if it wasn’t for director Marc Webb. Of course Webb is expected to return to his post to direct its sequel, but since he owes Fox – the studio that helped finance and distribute (500) Days of Summer – one more film, that he may not be able to direct The Amazing Spider-Man 2.

Now comes word that Fox may be willing to let Webb make the Spidey sequel … for a price.

Bad Toys II

That headline means exactly what your brain most likely first thought it meant.

Adam Sandler and his Happy Madison Productions are currently developing a movie based on the French animated/live-action/comic book panel hybrid short from Daniel Brunet and Nicolas Douste, titled Bad Toys II, for Columbia Pictures.

The short is basically a man playing with his old toys, but presented in the style of a Michael Bay movie (just as most of us imagined it as kids), drawing much inspiration from the highway car chase in Bays Bad Boys II.

Continue reading for more and to watch the short if you’ve not already seen it.

Men in Black 3

Earlier today came news that director Marc Webb might not be able to return to make The Amazing Spider-Man 2 for Sony Pictures due to a contractual agreement with Fox.

The news came from Columbia Pictures president Doug Belgrad, who took part in a lengthy, information-filled interview recently. In addition to the Spider-Man bit, he also shared the studios’ hopes for upcoming projects, including sequels and remakes.

Marc Webb

The Amazing Spider-Man may not have been the most well received movie amongst critics, but it did earn enough to garner two sequels.

So with the movie already moving forward with a draft written by James Vanderbilt and rewrites to be penned by Star Trek scribes Alex Kurtzman and Roberto Orci, the only thing Sony needs to do is get director Marc Webb back in the chair for The Amazing Spider-Man 2. But this could prove to be difficult because of a few contractual obligations.

Goosebumps

Remember Goosebumps, the series of horror books aimed at youths and written by author R.L. Stine? The books were mostly popular in the ’90s but still continue to be made in one form or another to this day.

As it turns out, Columbia Pictures acquired the rights to about 50 of Stine’s works back in 2008 and has been developing a feature adaptation of the books since then. And now they’ve found a writer for the job—it’s being reported that Darren Lemke, who wrote the scripts for Shrek Forever After and the upcoming Bryan Singer fantasy adventure, Jack the Giant Killer, has been brought in to adapt Goosebumps into script form.

Girl with the Dragon Tattoo

Columbia Pictures has released an even longer trailer for the upcoming David Fincher film The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, which you can watch here below.

The 8-minute trailer was first made available last week at iTunes when the soundtrack went up for pre-order. Despite being more than three times longer than the average trailer, the extended scenes presented in this trailer (complete with an original score composed by Trent Reznor and Atticus Ross) have a nice, orderly flow to them and don’t reveal too much of the story.

SDCC 2011: ‘The Amazing Spider-Man’ Panel, Footage Description & Video Of Andrew Garfield Surprise

Week of Geek: SDCC 2011 Coverage - San Diego Comic Con

SDCC 2011: The Amazing Spider-Man panel: Emma Stone

Unfortunately for The Amazing Spider–Man, their trailer leaked a tad early, leading Columbia Pictures to just release it for all to see (unfortunately for them, maybe, but good for those of us excited about the movie!). Surely if the trailer hadn’t have leaked they could have wowed everyone at Comic–Con with it before releasing it, but they still were sure to bring a little something extra to show off.

The panel kicked off with said trailer, this time in 3D to add a little bit new to the mix, before someone dressed in a low–budget Spider–Man costume came up to the microphone going on about how excited they were to be there. After a bit, the person removes their mask to reveal that it’s the new Spidey himself, Andrew Garfield, who then talks about how much the superhero means to him and how much it changed his life growing up.

Garfield then introduced the rest of the panel—his co–star and female lead, Emma Stone, director Marc Webb, and producers Avi Arad and Matt Tolmach—before removing the costume and joining them. Co–star Rhys Ifans was the surprise guest later in the panel.

Keep reading for new footage descriptions and to check out some pictures from the panel. You can also see a video of Garfield’s speech after he revealed himself as the costumed fan!
