  |  @   |  

Relativity Media has announced that they have optioned the feature film rights to Voltron from World Event Productions, and that they plan on making a live–action feature based on the popular 1984 animated series, Voltron: Defender of the Universe. The hopes are that this can turn into a big new franchise for the studio.

Charles Roven and Richard Suckle of Atlas Entertainment brought the opportunity to Relativity, and they will act as shepherds to the development of the movie.

‘Game Of Thrones’ & ‘Lord Of The Rings’ Star Sean Bean To Be King In New ‘Snow White’
  |  @   |  

The most active of the many Snow White projects as of late is Universal Pictures’ Snow White and the Huntsman, but let’s not forget the other high–profile Snow White projects being developed: Disney’s Snow and the Seven is still on the way, and Relativity Media also has one on the way that’s putting together its own decent cast.

The movie was once called The Brothers Grimm: Snow White, but is now said to be “untitled,” so it’s unclear whether that title is still in play. This version of the fable stars The Blind Side and Abduction actress Lily Collins as Snow, with Julia Roberts playing her evil stepmother and Queen, and The Social Network and new Lone Ranger Armie Hammer playing her prince charming–type love interest.

Now the man you have to cast if you have the chance to cast him, Sean Bean, has been added to the party. Bean is in final negotiations to play the role of the King and father to Snow White.

‘The Crow’ Remake Brings In ‘Watchmen’ Writer Alex Tse; Update On Legal Battle
  |  @   |  

Last we heard, the planned remake of the 1994 Alexander Proyas title starring Brandon Lee, The Crow, was facing its possible demise by way of legal battles after The Weinstein Company presented to the court their case for owning full rights to distribute the movie globally, and seeking that production be halted on the project.

Since then the two parties have been going back and forth (we’ll touch more on that below), but none of this is preventing Relativity Media from continuing to put their pieces together on the film. It’s being reported that the studio has hired screenwriter Alex Tse to work on the script, which would follow his work on the Zack Snyder adaptation of the classic Alan Moore and Dave Gibbons graphic novel, Watchmen.

Tse joins director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (28 Days Later), and yes, Bradley Cooper (Midnight Meat Train, The Hangover), who is still attached to star in the remake should the Weinsteins lose their case.

Some potentially very good news for all of you fans of the 1994 cult classic, The Crow, which has been in the news quite often lately with a remake in the works through Relativity Media.

  |  @   |  

Just a few days ago it was reported that Juan Carlos Fresnadillo had been hired to direct Relativity Media’s remake of the 1994 cult classic, The Crow.

It was expected that things would begin moving forward a bit more rapidly now, and it does appear this is the case. Deadline is reporting that Bradley Cooper, star of The Hangover and The A-Team, has entered into early negotiations to take on the title role originally played by the late Brandon Lee.

The movie tells the story of a musician who’s savagely beaten and killed when he and his fiancee are attacked. He then finds himself resurrected and sets off on a quest to find and destroy all who were responsible for he and his love’s deaths.
