Worth Your Consideration #024
- Lionsgate has acquired the distribution rights to Kick-Ass, the film adaptation of Mark Millar’s kick-ass comic book which “tells the story of average teenager Dave Lizewski (Aaron Johnson), a comic-book fanboy who decides to take his obsession as inspiration to become a real-life superhero.”
- Also from Ain’t It Cool News, there’s news that the next film in the Wolverine franchise will be penned by Christopher (The Usual Suspects) McQuarrie. AICN hated X-Men Origins: Wolverine (which I still have not seen), and feels that the hiring of McQuarrie means very good things for the film version of everyone’s favorite overexposed and overhyped mutant.
- And, proving that I get way too much of my news from a site I often disagree with, here’s yet another bit from AICN: Weird!! If There’s Another SUPERMAN Movie, A Lot Of Stuff Probably Won’t Be In It…For Better or Worse…
- And, oh yeah, will you look at this. Ain’t It Cool did this next story, too. Egads, I didn’t realize until I sat down to write this that all of the stories I was going to cover were from that site. Man, I guess you should just go subscribe to their feed or something (assuming you can find the link to it, which right now I can’t). Ahem... anyway. The news is that Columbia Pictures has found a writer for Spider-Man 5 and Spider-Man 6. His name is James Vanderbilt, and he wrote the first draft of the script for Spider-Man 4, which is currently in pre-production or pre-pre-production or whatever it is they call that stage when a hundred writers rewrite a script to make studio execs happy.
