Mark Protosevich

Mark Protosevich, the writer behind The Cell, I Am Legend and Spike Lee’s remake of Oldboy, which opened last week, let it be known in a recent interview with Ain’t It Cool News that he is planning to collaborate with Edgar Wright on what is to be a straight up smart and scary horror film.

The entire interview (link found below) is well worth reading, especially for aspiring screenwriters and those that like an inside view of the movie business, but check out what Protosevich had to say about working with Wright below.

NYCC 2013: Oldboy (2013) panel

In Spike Lee’s upcoming Old Boy remake, Josh Brolin plays Joe Doucett, a man who’s inexplicably abducted and held captive in a hotel – one that’s actually a prison – for nearly 20 years before he’s equally inexplicably set free one day. Once he’s let out, Joe goes on a vengeful quest to uncover the identify of the man who imprisoned him and learn exactly why he lost all those years of his life.

Brolin wasn’t able to make an appearance in person on Friday at Film District’s Oldboy panel at New York Comic-Con 2013, but he did send along a video message – with tiny cardboard hammer in hand – to introduce some new exclusive footage from the film, which won’t be released online for some time, we were told.

Footage description is here below, along with photos and news from the panel.

Edgar Wright

Edgar Wright‘s next movie is the long-awaited third film in the Blood and Ice Cream trilogy, The World’s End, with Simon Pegg and Nick Frost. After that it was looking more and more like he would finally get to direct Ant-Man for Marvel, but now a new project has come into play.

It’s been reported that Wright is set to direct Collider for Paramount Pictures, and that he’ll co-write the script with Mark Protosevich. On top of that, the movie will be produced by J.J. Abrams and his Bad Robot Productions.

Geek Discussion: Is The ‘Mass Effect’ Movie Doomed Already?

Mass Effect

A movie adaptation of the mega–hit BioWare video game franchise, Mass Effect, is still in the very early stages of development, but already basic details are being shared that are pretty interesting and potentially unsettling.

Last we had heard, the project would be making an appearance at this past San Diego Comic–Con with BioWare’s Casey Hudson and screenwriter Mark Protosevich, but because it was so early, not much was shared. Not that it appeared, anyway. As it turns out, Legendary Pictures, the studio behind the planned movie, actually answered a few questions that fans were asking via the Twitter on their website. And a couple of their answers could have fans unsure of what’s to come.

Continue reading to see the Q&A and to chime in below with your thoughts on the Mass Effect movie!

Legendary Pictures Bringing ‘Mass Effect’ Movie To Comic–Con

We all know how bad movies based on games tend to be (and vice versa), but there are some games out there that, if done correctly, could make some pretty fantastic movies.

One of the big ones that jumps to mind is the Mass Effect trilogy. One of the biggest game series to-date, the BioWare property takes the action–RPG to incredible places, making for an intense and compelling story and a truly must–play experience for any gamer out there.

A Mass Effect movie has been whispered about for a while now, dating back to around when Mass Effect 2 was being released where Casey Hudson was quoted saying “Obviously we have a tremendous amount of interest from people in Hollywood to make a major motion picture about Mass Effect. The most important thing for us is, we don’t just want to see a movie get made. We want to see a great movie get made, if it’s going to get done at all.” That was followed by the news that Legendary Pictures had secured the rights to turn the game into a movie, but that was the last we heard about it…until now.

Last we heard, a remake of the the classic South Korean film, Oldboy, was on the way with Steven Spielberg directing and Will Smith starring. This sounded like an April Fools joke at first, and thankfully things never came together to the delight of many fans.

Now another potentially true April Fools–sounding bit of news has come to surface. According to Twitch, Mandate Pictures still plans on remaking Oldboy, and they’re now in negotiations with Spike Lee to direct it. Lee, of course, is best known for films like Malcolm X, Inside Man, and Miracle at St. Anna.

Mass Effect

Legendary Pictures has secured the rights to turn the incredible science fiction video game Mass Effect into a feature-length movie. The banner has previously delivered us great titles like 300, The Dark Knight, Watchmen, The Hangover, and Where the Wild Things Are…among many others.

Avi Arad and Ari Arad will produce the film, and Mark Protosevich is currently in talks to pen the screenplay. Protosevich has previously written The Cell, Poseidon, I Am Legend, and helped to write Marvel Studios’ Thor.

‘I Am Legend’ Writer To Script ‘Oldboy’ Remake

OldboyAfter the shocking news that Steven Spielberg and Will Smith might be making an American remake to cult Hong Kong classic Oldboy, the Internet was buzzing. But now comes buzz-killing news that I Am Legend and Poseidon writer Mark Protosevich will be writing the script, and people aren’t so thrilled.

Though it is Steven Spielberg and it could still be awesome, we all know what a bad script can do — even with such a legendary directory.

Let’s take a look at Protosevich’s track record. The Cell: eh, trippy and f’d up, but that’s about all. Poseidon: not the worst movie I’ve ever seen, but not good either; oh, and it’s a remake of a classic. I Am Legend: one of the worst movies I saw last year; again, a remake of sorts. Thor: still a while before we’ll see this one, if ever… which means questions begin to arise here as well.

Will DJ Caruso Direct Thor’s Cinematic Debut?

When Marvel announced its plans for future movies, it wasn’t a big surprise to see Thor on the list. One of the original Avengers obviously made Thor a ripe choice for cinematic adaptation, so with writers and producers on board, all the movie needs now is a director.

Matthew Vaughn (Layer Cake, Stardust) had previously been attached to direct the flick, but was off the project after his holding deal expired this past December. But news out of IESB is suggesting that Eagle Eye helmer DJ Caruso might be up for the directorship.

IESB brought up the now-stereotypical question posed to directors these days, as to whether they would like to direct a superhero movie. Apparently Caruso was a fan of Thor when he was younger, and despite fears about which Thor story to tell, Caruso said he could see himself getting into directing the movie.

IESB: Have there been any talks with Marvel?
DJ Caruso: I have had some talks with Marvel about it but I have not seen a screenplay. It could be something that I am interested in.
