D23 Expo 2015: ‘Doctor Strange’ Early Look Expands MCU
  |  @   |  

It will be exciting to see how the Marvel Cinematic Universe will progress after Phase II. With Guardians of the Galaxy taking us to galaxies unknown, and Ant-Man introducing us to the quantum realm, what sort of dimensions could we expect to see in Phase 3? Well, Doctor Strange will attempt to give us a look at what’s to come.

Marvel President Kevin Feige MC’d the Marvel panel at the D23 Expo in Anaheim, CA, on Saturday and offered attendees a look at the film, which came in the form of concept art from Marvel’s art department. This is because director Scott Derrickson hasn’t shot anything yet, as filming is scheduled to begin this November. As he would explain, these concept art pieces aren’t revealed to the public this early during the pre-production process, and came straight from the vaults of the Marvel Art Department. As the photos started to be displayed, we clearly see that Doctor Strange will truly be Marvel’s Fantasia (as previously revealed).

More on what we saw at the D23 Expo here below.

  |  @   |  

Marvel has chosen a new writer to work on the screenplay for one of their upcoming hopeful new movie franchises, Doctor Strange.

According to reports, Jon Spaihts has been hired to pen the script. A first draft of the script was written by Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer. Spaihts was the first to work on the screenplay for Ridley Scott’s Prometheus before some other writers go involved in rewrites and polishing and such. His other credits include The Darkest Hour, the upcoming reboots of The Mummy, and the remake of Disney’s The Black Hole. He also wrote 2007 Black List script Passengers, a project that currently has Keanu Reeves attached to it.

Sony Puts The Rush Job On ‘Uncharted’ Movie; Hires New Writers
  |  @   |  

As any video game player knows, the Sony Playstation 3 exclusive title Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune is one of the more popular titles to be released in the past few years, and that popularity has seemingly doubled with the recent release of the mega-hit sequel Uncharted 2: Among Thieves. As we all fully expected, it was announced back in June that a movie adaptation was in the works, and that Kyle Ward had been tapped to pen the screenplay (Read: Kyle Ward Snags Another Gig; Tapped To Write “˜Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune’ Adaptation). Now comes word that this initial set-up did not work out so well and a brand new plan is in motion.

Latino Review has it on good authority that Mr. Ward is contractually obligated to write the script for another video game adaptation in Hitman 2, and that it would be at least a year before he could get to Uncharted. Instead of waiting for this — a project that they’re itching to get moving immediately — Sony has instead gone out and hired Thomas Dean Donnelly and Joshua Oppenheimer to write the script.

Brett Ratner In Final Negotiations For ‘Conan’
  |  @   |  

After many rumors about his involvement, it looks like Brett Ratner is in final negotiations to direct the new cinematic version of your favorite barbarian, Conan, for studio tag team Nu-Image, Millennium Films, and Lionsgate.

If this project confirms Ratner, it will be added to his inexplicably heavy schedule along with Beverly Hills Cop 4, the God of War adaptation, his Hugh Hefner biopic, and God knows how many more Rush Hour movies.

The Conan script is currently being touched up by writers Joshua Oppenheimer and Thomas Dean Donnelly based on the original story by Robert E. Howard. The hope is that they can have it out for some time in 2010.
