Tarantino’s ‘The Hateful Eight’ Shall Be Made

thehatefuleight

After the script for The Hateful Eight was leaked, Tarantino took his script and went home. Well, he went to a theater and had a live reading, technically. But either way, he definitely did not want the film made. He apparently has changed his mind, and production will begin in November of this year. More info, including the wonderful cast, after the jump.

Steven S. DeKnight Replaces Drew Goddard on ‘Marvel’s Daredevil’

Yet another creative change in the Marvel department, this time involving Marvel’s upcoming Netflix series, Daredevil. Drew Goddard has exited as show-runner, and is being replaced by Steven S. DeKnight, producer/writer of various shows,  including Buffy the Vampire Slayer, AngelSmallville, Dollhouse, Spartacus: Gods of the Arena, & Spartacus: War of the Damned. With a pedigree like that, I can’t help but think that this is actually a good move on Marvel’s part. While Goddard would have been a good choice, this one seems more in tune with the Marvel franchise. Having someone who’s worked closely with Joss Whedon can’t hurt either as far as the Marvel universe goes.

Spartacus was a show that I hated in the beginning. The first episode is so ridiculous, it turned me off completely. I heard it had gotten better, so I gave it another try. The next two seasons (the ones produced by DeKnight) were great. It was ridiculous when it needed to be, and was always thrilling. They managed to turn a highly stylized world into some compelling television by the end, and I look forward to what he does with the character Daredevil. Marvel’s official press release after the jump. Continue reading “Steven S. DeKnight Replaces Drew Goddard on ‘Marvel’s Daredevil’”

Edgar Wright has left ‘Ant-Man’

It what  can only be described as extremely disappointing news, Edgar Wright has left Ant-Man due to ‘creative differences.’  I trust Marvel (most of the time), and I forgave Iron Man 2, but as far as I’m concerned, the man responsible for Shaun of the DeadHot FuzzScott Pilgrim vs. the World, and The World’s End is one that should be trusted in regards to creativity. I’m bummed. That’s the only way to put it. Wright was actually passionate about the character, and that can make for a much more meaningful film, but alas, it won’t happen.

Here’s what Marvel had to say:

“Marvel and Edgar Wright jointly announced today that the studio and director have parted ways on Ant-Man due to differences in their vision of the film. The decision to move on is amicable and does not impact the release date on July 17, 2015. A new director will be announced shortly.”

A couple of months ago it was announced that filming would be pushed back from May to mid-July. There were speculations as to why they would delay, and it seems as though this is the reason.
