Kevin Smith Shares Pic From The Set of Tusk

Image

Last night Kevin Smith shared a photo on Instagram that is sure to get the hearts of fans racing. The above shot is from the set of his latest film, Tusk. Whilst much isn’t given away from the photo, it certainly amps up the excitement for this coming horror film.

It follows the story of a journalist who off to interview a scientist but ends up being the victim of his latest experiment. Justin Long is to play the young journalist, with Michael Parks taking the roll of the crazy scientist.

Smith added the following statement to the photo “Six days from now, when this set is complete, horrible things will happen to @Justinlong … #WalrusYes”

Ben Affleck to star and direct in African geopolitcal thriller

After the runaway success of Argo, Ben Affleck is once again set to direct and star in another political thriller, this time set in Africa.

Will Staples, who is also attached to the latest James Cameron’s project Myth, has been brought in to write the script. Whilst Affleck has managed to make a name for himself behind the camera over recent years, it will be interesting to see whether he can be as successful a second time around with another political thriller.

The plot focusses on a group of mercenaries who are hired to kill a warlord that has been victimising his own people. 

Is another Anchorman movie on the way?

Adam McKay, co-writer and director of Anchorman 2: The Legend Continues, has recently come out and said that there may be another Anchorman movie set to released.

Much like when the first installment was released on DVD and Blu-ray, there is a whole host of extra footage left over that never fit within the movie, and so this footage become Wake Up Ron Burgandy. Mckay has stated that they could replace every joke in the original film with a different one because of the amount of improv that takes place during the filming. He has mentioned that this wouldn’t be the same style as Wake Up because the new one wouldn’t follow a different story line, but would be an overall alternate cut of Anchorman 2, with different jokes throughout.

Also, for anyone interested in seeing the gay/vampire joke playing out, that was seen in the trailers released the other day, this scene has already been cut from the final cut of the film. So hopefully if this alternate is ever released, audiences will get to see it in in its entirety. 

Is Paul Rudd set to be Ant-Man?

The rumour mill has been churning away recently about who is going to be cast as Hank Pym in the upcoming Edgar Wright directed Ant-Man, and it looks like Paul Rudd is just edging closer to the finish line.

Last week it was looking like a toss up between Rudd and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, but now Gordon-Levitt seems to have fallen behind in the possibility for the roll,.

Whilst nothing is set in stone with casting yet, it also looks like Rashida Jones is another possibility to be in the film as well.

Chog Toy

Chog Toy

With Christmas slowly making its way towards us, it is often difficult to work out what to get the comic book fan in your life. Well look no further than this Chog toy, from the incredible comic, Chew.

This 4 inch tall, chicken and frog cross breed, is limited to a 1000 and comes with a replica studio audience ticket from “In The Kitchen with Chow Chu”

A must have for any collectors shelf; although not something that would be recommended for a healthy, balanced diet!

Captain America: The Winter Soldier Trailer

So after the teaser trailer earlier this morning, we finally have a full blown actual one for our enjoyment!

Cap looks like he’s finally settling into the modern world and the fact that everyone he know’s is no longer alive; the barbershop quartet joke is very good.

Each new Marvel films looks like it trying to top the last offering and this one certainly doesn’t look like it is going to disappoint.

Another new villain is added this time around and I’m not quite sure much we can trust Robert Redford’s character, as a high up S.H.I.E.L.D representative. Only time will tell on that front.

Tom Hardy to play Elton John

In a shock casting that is even more left field than Ben Affleck as Batman, Tom Hardy has been cast as Elton John in the new upcoming biopic of his life, Rocketman

Hardy is used to playing real life characters, after his break out roll in Bronson, but this one is slightly out of his usual range. 

The film will be directed by Michael Gracey with the script coming from Lee Hall (who wrote War Horse), and will focus on John’s life from childhood to his huge popularity and fame he now has.

Personally, I feel Justin Timberlake would be much more suited for the roll after his portrayal of Elton in the video for This Train Don’t Stop Here Anymore
