Clints Bits – 3/11

Clints Bits – 3/11

Caught “The Matrix Revolutions” today. There’s an embargo on releasing reviews till the day of opening, so all I can offer is a quick five cents. Ok, you know how everyone suspected that something grander, something that would help clear up all the mumbo-jumbo from the previous movies, was coming in the form of “Revolutions”? Well, it didn’t happen. You’ll be just as bewildered – only madder – by the end of this one too. Again, special effects and sets are outstanding, but I for one, am over it. Bullet time’s so yesterday. Ok, still a good film, just a bit of a flat ending to the series. Look forward to reading some more takes on it, and again seeing if repeated viewing improves it.Onto today’s bits, and items about "Superman", "Ice Age 2", "Man Thing", "Scary Movie 4" and, er, Daniel Baldwin.

  • According to Dark Horizons, Jerry Zucker confirmed on Dallas radio station 102.1 The Edge that a “Scary Movie 4” is a lock after last weekend’s record breaking opening for the third film.

  • The Official “Hellboy” site is online here, The Official “Cat in the Hat” site is online here

  • IGN FilmForce reports that “Truth, Justice and the American Way”, The George Reeves biopic,yeing a January start.

  • According to Dark Horizons, the “Ice Age” sequel will be titled “Ice Age 2 : The Meltdown”.

  • Ian Bliss ["The Matrix Revolutions"] has a role in Brett Leonard’s "Man Thing".

  • A rumour that surfaced at Dark Horizons, suggesting The Wachowski Brothers [“The Matrix”] might be doing a rewrite of the “Superman” script, has been debunked by Superman-V.com

  • Todd Field [In the Bedroom] is developing “Back Roads”, based on the best-selling novel by Tawni O’Dell, about a teenager whose mother is in jail for killing his abusive father and who’s left to care for his three younger sisters.

  • Regency Enterprises has signed Madeline scribes Jennifer Flackett and Mark Levin to write and direct their new script, tentatively titled “Flowergirl”, described by the duo as “Annie Hall”, but with 11-year-olds.

  • James Foley will direct a biopic about actor Montgomery Clift. The story follows Clift’s life through his Hollywood career to his death in 1966, a journey that included addiction, struggles with sexual identity and a car crash that robbed him of his leading-man looks.

  • As previously rumoured, Dwayne "The Rock" Johnson is attached to star in “Johnny Bravo”, which Matthew Berry and Eric Abrams will write.

  • Daniel Baldwin will star in TV’s "The Strange Detective," which centres on a San Francisco detective who, during a car chase on the Golden Gate bridge, plunges into the ocean. He survives, but begins to experience "rips in time," having visions of events that have occurred in the places he visits, which are sometimes related to the cases he is working on.

  • New Line Cinema is developing Neil Zawacki’s book “How to be a Villain” for Mandeville Films to produce. The book, a step-by-step guide to joining the forces of darkness, offers humorous takes on such issues as whether to invest in winged monkeys or ninja warriors and where to locate your evil hideout.
