Chris Pratt Is Teaming With John Wick Directors For This Crazy Project

fb share tweet share

guardians of the galaxyIn one year, Chris Pratt has gone from a lovably goofy supporting player on a TV series to being one of the more bankable actors on the planet. So it’s no surprise that any project he lines up is going to attract some interesting names. Case in point: Universal Pictures’ upcoming feature adaptation of the wild as hell comic series Cowboy Ninja Viking is looking to John Wick directors David Leitch and Chad Stahelski to bring their action know-how to the Pratt-led flick. This choice couldn’t be more Super Awesome Excellent.

Things aren’t really set in stone for anyone on Cowboy Ninja Viking just yet (except for screenwriters Paul Wernick and Rhett Reese), as the directing duo are only in very early talks right now. Pratt, who has a seriously heavy load coming as far as film commitments go, wanted to wait until the film brought in the right creative mind to lead this flick. Luckily, Variety reports their sources say Pratt has met with both Leitch and Stahelski and that his happiness with them has gotten Universal to send them an offer.

This Acclaimed British Anthology Series Is Getting An American Remake

black mirrorDid you ever accidentally buy a greatest hits album that, instead of having the original songs, has the lead singer of the band just performing the hits without the band? That’s the kind of feeling I have now, as it’s been announced that the bonkers-good British anthology series Black Mirror is in the early stages of being adapted for U.S. audiences. This could be amazing, or it could be like one of a million other failed Americanizations of successful overseas properties. Place your bets.

The news was shared by Cris Abrego and Charlie Corwin, the two CEOs and co-chairman of the recently established Endemol Shine North America, at the Real Screen summit. Corwin made it official that “there is a plan” in place for getting a U.S. edition of Black Mirror in development. He added that creator Charlie Brooker and Endemol U.K.’s Annabel Jones “have really touched on something and I agree — we need more.”

Doctor Who Gets Filtered Through Dr. Seuss, And The Results Are Delightful

fb share tweet share

DoctorsWhoDoctor Who is already as much fairy tale as science fiction. A crazy eccentric visitor who lives inside a magic box and invites young people along on amazing adventures — in a world without Who, that could easily describe some lost work by Roald Dahl. But what if the world of The Doctor instead collided with another beloved children’s author — one with whom he shares a fake doctorate. The results might look like the image up top, the brilliant work of a deviantARTist calling himself DrFaustusAU. He’s given a Seussian makeover to tons of science fiction staples such as Star Wars, Alien, and Predator. Great Seuss’ Ghost, just look how cute his Daleks are!

project almanacThe found footage flick Project Almanac, formerly titled Welcome to Yesterday and delayed a number of times, finally hits theaters this weekend, closing out the first month of 2015 with a bit of time travel. (Oddly enough, the month also started with a time travel joint, the Spierig Brothers’ under seen Predestination.) This teen-centric movie about a group of nerdy high school friends who discover that one of their dads made a time machine, got us thinking about our favorite young-folk themed time travel movies. With that in mind, here is a list of our favorite offerings in this realm, there are slackers, robots, and everyone’s favorite DeLorean.

Jurassic World Officially Unveils Its Most Dangerous Dinosaur Yet

fb share tweet share

jurassic worldYou’ve no doubt wondered exactly what director Colin Trevorrow has up his dinosaur-sized sleeves when it comes to making innovations to the adventure park at the center of the highly anticipated Jurassic World. And we now have our first full official description for the film’s new big baddie, the dreaded, genetically modified Indominus rex. It really makes you wonder why anyone would try to make this beast a tourist attraction, as it could obviously eat an entire family as a mid-afternoon snack.

The new images and descriptions can be found at the Jurassic World website, seen among the rest of the dinosaurs. We’d recently gotten an unofficial look at Indominus rex a while back, but I’m glad the marketing team didn’t wait until right before the film comes out to bring this badass to the forefront of audiences’ minds. I certainly hope it makes a big appearance in the next trailer.
