GHOST IN THE SHELL 3-D - PREVIEW

Ghost in the Shell 3-D (2010 or 2011)

Starring: TBA
Directed by: TBA
Rated: Unrated
U.S. Opening Date: TBA 2010

THEY SAY

A live-action 3-D remake of the 1995 anime movie Ghost in the Shell. The film will be made by DreamWorks and it is apparently Steven Spielberg's own involvement that made this project go through.

"Ghost in the Shell is one of my favorite stories," Spielberg said. "It's a genre that has arrived, and we enthusiastically welcome it to DreamWorks."

No production date or other details are known at this stage.

Ghost in the Shell is set in the not-too-distant future, when an unnamed government uses lifelike cyborgs or "enhanced" humans for undercover work. One of the key cyborgs is The Major, Motoko Kusanagi, who resembles a cross between The Terminator and a Playboy centerfold. She finds herself caught up in a tangled web of espionage and counterespionage as she searches for the mysterious superhacker known as "The Puppet Master."

WE SAY

Yet another anime sci-fi classic to remade into a live-action movie by Hollywood. The other one is of course Akira. The idea of remakes, especially of movies that are pretty good to begin with, fills us with dread — and to be honest the same goes for this project . . .

UBIK (2010) - PREVIEW

Ubik (2010)

Starring: TBA
Directed by: TBA
Rated: Unrated
U.S. Opening Date: TBA 2010

THEY SAY
Planned movie based on the novel of the same name by sci-fi author Philip K. Dick.

Described as “a metaphysical comic nightmare on death and salvation,” Dick’s 1969 novel Ubik was heralded as one of the 100 greatest English-language novels by Time magazine.

As of May 2008 the film has been optioned by Celluloid Dreams. The film will be produced by Hengameh Panahi of Celluloid Dreams and Isa Dick Hackett, the author's daughter, of Electric Shepherd Productions. It is slated to go into production in early 2009. It is unclear at this stage who will star in it or direct it.

The novel takes place in the then “future” of 1992. Civilians can go to the Moon and psi phenomena are widely accepted as real. The protagonist is Joe Chip, a debt-ridden technician for Glen Runciter's “prudence organization,” which employs people with the ability to block certain psychic powers (as in the case of an anti-telepath, who can prevent a telepath from reading a client's mind) to enforce privacy by request. Runciter runs the company with the assistance of his deceased wife Ella, who is kept in a state of “half-life”, a form of cryonic suspension that gives the deceased person limited consciousness and communication ability.


WE SAY

Always viewed as “most likely to be filmed” by Dick himself, the author actually wrote a screenplay based on his book in 1974 for French filmmaker Jean-Pierre Gorin. Dick wrote the screenplay within a month, but Gorin never filmed the project. The screenplay was published in 1985 (three years after Dick’s death) as Ubik: The Screenplay.

Ironically many of Dick’s other literary properties were turned into movies such as Blade Runner, Total Recall and A Scanner Darkly.

Will Hollywood use author Philip K. Dick’s original screenplay? Maybe they will now that his daughter is involved in the project.

Ironically few of the movies based on Dick’s material can be truly described as truly Dickian or true to the author’s original vision with the possible exception of the recent A Scanner Darkly (starring Keanu Reeves). Usually Dick’s ideas merely serve as one-sentence plot lines for Hollywood film-makers.

Our favorite scene from the book involves the penniless hero attacking a robot apartment door that insists on a five-cent toll:

"I'll sue you," the door said as the first screw fell out.

Joe Chip said, "I've never been sued by a door. But I guess I can live through it."

Alien 5 - Sequel Plans

fter critical and box office Alien failure for over a decade, Ridley Scott and Sigourney Weaver have been talking about potentially restarting the franchise by adding a new twist: Alien 5 might not feature any aliens.

Or rather, no Xenomorph, the iconic Geiger-created beast that drove the story of four films.

Sigourney Weaver: “We’d have to go back to the drawing board on [the alien]. Ridley said that right away when we first talked about [a fifth film]. …What we’re interested in is taking the character of Ripley and seeing what other science fiction story we can tell about someone who has lived several lives.”

The duo think there is plenty of character development left for Ripley. But after fighting off a hell beast, falling asleep for a generation and outliving her entire family, starting a NEW family after defeating an Alien army, losing that family in a space ship accident, giving host to an Alien in her stomach, dying, being resurrected in the far future, being genetically mixed with Alien DNA, having super powers, becoming a psychic, having group sex with a nest of Aliens, giving birth to an Alien/Human half-breed, then finally returning to Earth … one wonders what exactly is left to develop.

No matter. With Ridley involved and Weaver’s face on the poster, fans would turn out at theaters to gamble their ten dollars, this writer included.

It’s all just talk for now, and even if they put a proposal together there’s no guarantee Fox would want to do it.

Neverending Story Carries On

i09 are reporting an interview with producer Producer Frank Marshall that suggests we may well see a new version of 80s kids classic The Neverending Story in the not-especially-near future.The phrase that makes us particularly optimistic is "we love the book". Although the rights are still tied up, it seems that Marshall has in mind a more faithful adaptation of Michael Endes' novel than Wolfgang Petersen's original, which only covered half the book. Structurally, the novel does actually lend itself to adapting as more than one movie, but the original sequels went their own way.The original also dropped some major characters, presumably largely due to FX restrictions that would be easily surmountable today. So it's some way off, and may never happen at all, but it's an intriguing prospect nonetheless
