[News]Planned Uncharted Movie Gets Zero Dark Thirty Screenwriter

IMG_0091.JPG

Sony Pictures went out and hired an Oscar-winning screenwriter for their big screen adaptation of the hit video game Uncharted. The writer’s name is Mark Boal, and he’s written the scripts for the incredible war films Zero Dark Thirty and The Hurt Locker. He’s a much better choice than the writer of the National Treasure movies, who is one of the writers they previously hired.

According to THR, Boal is a big fan of the video game franchise, and he envisions the story as a “swashbuckling adventure in the vein of Indiana Jones.” That’s basically a description of the video game, but if he can help bring the story and the Nathan Drake character to life on the big screen in an amazing way, then what more can the fans ask for?

The last we heard, the plan was to start shooting in 2015, so they’ve still got some time to get the script right. The video game centers on a treasure hunter named Nate Drake, who is a descendent of explorer Sir Francis Drake. He believes he has learned the location of the legendary golden South American city of El Dorado from a cursed statue. While on his search El Dorado, things take a turn when a rival treasure hunter joins in on the search. Along the way Drake faces crazy creatures, mutated descendants of Spaniards, and even Nazis.

Sony is still looking for the actor to take on the lead role of Drake. Mark Wahlberg was attached at one point, and the studio recently offered it to Chris Pratt, but, unfortunately, he passed. Pratt would have been a great choice! At least the development of the film is moving forward. This is one I’ve been excited about seeing a feature film adaptation for.

Boal is currently writing Triple Frontier for director Kathryn Bigelow. The story for that film centers on the controversial Army soldier Bowe Bergdahl, who was imprisoned by the Taliban and freed this year in a trade for prisoners held by the U.S. in Guantanamo Bay.

[News] Star Wars: Episode 7 Finally Gets A Title

Star Wars: Episode 7 has revealed its full title – it will be called Star Wars: The Force Awakens.

The news arrived in a tweet from the official Star Wars account, which also announced the completion of principal photography on the much-anticipated project.

The film, directed by JJ Abrams and with a cast including Harrison Ford, Lupita Nyong’o, and Max von Sydow, started shooting at the UK’s Pinewood studios in May 2014, but was forced to shut down for a fortnight in August after Ford suffered a broken leg on set. Internet observers have avidly chronicled any supposed leak from the highly-guarded shoot, including an accidental picture of what looked like a half-constructed Millennium Falcon at Greenham Common in Berkshire.

Rumours as to the title began circling almost as soon as the film went into production, with “The Ancient Fear” supposedly under consideration. This, however, now proves unfounded.

[Trailer] Leaked: Teaser Preview for Avengers Infinity War

image

Along with Marvel’s future movie line-up. The rumored Avengers 3 film will be split into 2 parts. And just like the Age of Ultron’s teaser was released last year at Comic Con 2013, Avengers: Infinity War is teased 4 years in advance!

Avengers: Infinity Wars would be divided into two parts with the second part coming a year (May, 2019), after the first part (May, 2018) is released.

Watch it before it is taken down:

Did this teaser confirm that the stone in Loki’s Staff is in fact an infinity stone? We all know Thanos is going to kick some serious ass if he gets that golden glove on. Marvel Studios today just proved why they are dominating the cinematic universe.

This is the golden age of superhero films and with Marvel and DC putting up on the big screens, I for one can’t wait!

Post culled from Movie Pilot… Thanks Guys

Seriously, Hydra is really spreading it’s tentacles this period with so many leaks coming from Marvel Studios.

While also at it, check out this sneak peek from the Avengers: Age of Ultron that was shared on YouTube.

So what do you think of the teaser and the sneak peek folks?

[Trailer] TAK3N

Liam Neeson is back again in Taken 3 or better put TAK3N and boy he’s pissed.

TAK3N

Tak3n has a cast consisting of  regulars, Maggie GraceLiam Neeson & Famke Janssen with Forest Whitaker being the newcomer on board. Check out the trailer below;

STORY: Ex-government operative Bryan Mills finds his life is shattered when he’s falsely accused of a murder that hits close to home. As he’s pursued by a savvy police inspector, Mills employs his particular set of skills to track the real killer and exact his unique brand of justice. :D

ANALYSIS: The trailer says it all. This sequel of Taken is going to fuel an adrenaline rush. Could feel it already from watching the trailer. Seems Liam Neeson is going to go encore for this and adding Whitaker to the mix certainly makes this worth looking forward to.

Can’t wait to see it when it hits the cinemas on the 9th of January, 2015.

So tell me, what do you think of the trailer folks? Share your thoughts with me in the comments box.
