X-Men was alright. A bit too heavy handed and predictable, but entertaining nonetheless

there will never not be an x-men film that isn't heavy handed. that's a part of what the X-Men has been about since the very beginning. if anything, it would be weird if it WASN'T beating you over the head with social commentary

Aronofsky's next movie sounds kind of lame to me, but i basically hate all things biblical.

[Only registered users can see links.]

EXCLUSIVE: I'm told that town is tantalized by a package circulating with Darren Aronofsky directing Noah, an edgy re-telling of the Noah's Ark story. Aronofsky wrote a script that is getting a rewrite by John Logan. I've heard he wants $130 million to make it and that New Regency is eyeing a co-financing role. Suitors considering stepping up for the other half include Paramount and Fox, as well as Summit, I've heard. It was described to me as a big fantasy epic, and an opportunity for Aronofsky to create a world. He's very passionate about it and wants to make it next film, after dropping out of The Wolverine. Aronofsky's got more heat on him than ever after directing the spectacularly profitable Black Swan, which grossed $315 million worldwide on a $12 million budget. His move toward Noah comes after Aronofsky recently flirted with Exodus, the 20th Century Fox and Chernin Entertainment-produced telling of the story of Moses, his defiance of the Pharoah and delivery of the Hebrews from enslavement. That script was written by Adam Cooper and Bill Collage. Beyond an ill-advised morphing of the Noah's Ark story into the Universal spinoff comedy Evan Almighty, nobody has tried to tell the Noah's Ark story in as ambitious a manner as Aronofsky intends. Will a studio step up to help Aronofsky build this boat on as grand a scale as he desires? Stayed tuned. Aronofsky and Logan are repped by CAA.

some more news about Apatow's next film

[Only registered users can see links.]

Chris O'Dowd has entertained a tidal wave of offers since playing Kristen Wiig’s law-enforcing love interest in Universal’s “Bridesmaids,” including one to appear in Judd Apatow's latest effort as director, Variety's Jeff Sneider exclusively reports. O'Dowd, "Tiny Furniture” director Lena Dunham and Charlyne Yi ("Knocked Up") are in negotiations to join the ensemble cast of the untitled comedy that spins off "Knocked Up." Paul Rudd and Leslie Mann reprise the husband-and-wife roles they played in “Knocked Up.” O’Dowd and Dunham will play employees of Rudd’s indie record company; Russell will play a hockey player; and Yi will reprise her “Knocked Up” character, the giggling stoner Jodi. Apatow, who produced the now-$100-million-hit "Bridesmaids," likes to work with his regulars -- so expect to see O'Dowd in future Apatow joints.

I read the script and he'd be great for the part. If he nails it I wouldn't be surprised if he was in the running for best supporting actor.

this leo news broke like two weeks ago, but all the major sites seem to be posting it now. i wonder if that's a sign that it's more likely.

The only screenplays I read before the movie comes out are Quentin's. I read Kill Bill and Inglorious Basterds before they came out and it in no way affected my enjoyment of the movie. It doesn't bother me knowing what's going to happen. Haven't you ever read a novel and then saw the movie?

yes, but that is different. movies are more often than not significantly different from a novel and are the director's interpretation of a basic idea. often a film will only have the characters names in common with the book, if that.

True, but I wouldn't say more often than not. Anyways, screenplays are not very descriptive. It's mostly just dialogue, so it doesn't really paint a true picture of what the scene is gonna look like. So, even if I know the plot and the scenes the real payoff comes when I see how he shot it. Kill Bill and Basterds were nothing like what I imagined. So, it's kind of the same thing in that it's the directors interpretation of the words on the page that makes it entertaining.

He would be way better than Will Smith.

I like Will Smith too, but I was talking about the part of Django. Trust me, that is not a part for Will Smith.
