The Dark Knight Rises Billboard

What is Movie News After Dark? It’s a nightly commitment. We want you to have a rundown of the best articles of the day. Newsworthy, opinionated or otherwise, we count down today’s best because we owe it to you, our beloved reader. We begin this evening with the coolest piece of Dark Knight Rises marketing that you’re likely to see, courtesy of the folks at /Film. Spotted at the intersection of Sunset and La Brea avenues in Hollywood, this billboard is not a graphic, but an actual billboard that appears to have exploded into the shape of the bat symbol. And here, we thought Christopher Nolan wasn’t down with 3D.

Today is a good day to be a musician who is far more interested in making movies than crooning out jams (or whatever the kids are calling it these days). Deadline Dartford reports that somehow, between wondering just who the hell that Adam Levine kid is and artfully arranging his collection of scarves, Mick Jagger had an idea for a film and now someone is penning it so that the Jags can also star in it. Celebrity is so choice. A History of Violence screenwriter Josh Olson (who also has credit on the Tom Cruise vehicle One Shot, thanks to his first draft of the Lee Child novel source material), will pen a screenplay for the film, currently called Tabloid. Jagger himself cooked up the idea for the flick, which he also hopes to star in. The film follows “a global media mogul with dubious morality, and…a young journalist who gets seduced and sucked into that immoral world.” Jagger is gunning for that mogul role. Jagger has appeared in a few feature films over the years, but mainly in smaller and often uncredited roles. He has, however, had some meatier roles in films such as Freejack, Bent, and The Man From Elysian Fields. And, trivia! Jagger was once set to play a main character in Werner Herzog’s ill-fated Fitzcarraldo. He then started his own production company back in 1995 to make his own projects (wise).

Despite your stately pipe, Josh Olson will not be reading your fucking script, sir.

The Village Voice lists the man who recently penned I Will Not Read Your F*cking Script as the “A History of Violence screenwriter,” but I prefer to think of him as the writer/director of direct-to-DVD masterpiece Infested.

Gritty. Tough. Intelligent. The History of Violence writer stakes his claim to a new suspense adaptation. And his inspiration packs heat.
