Fables Comic

When asked by The Hollywood Reporter what five comic titles would see the screen next if she got her way, DC Entertainment President Diane Nelson said that Neil Gaiman’s “Sandman” was on the top of the list followed by “Fables,” “Metal Men,” “Justice League,” and (everyone’s favorite) “Aquaman.” Those are exciting names. Almost as if DC were moving into a “phase two” of its own without fully realizing phase one. Of course, DC (through its partnership with Warners) would be in a position to take risks like these even if it didn’t have a firm omnibus plan in place. The funny thing is that “Sandman” would be far more fun than a Justice League team-up, and with the popularity of shows like Once Upon a Time, “Fables” would already have a kind of unintentional built-in audience.

The Ocean at the End of the Lane

According to Deadline Hollywood, Focus Features and Playtone are securing the rights to “The Ocean at the End of the Lane,” the new novel from Neil Gaiman. Normally, that would be exciting enough news on its own, but there’s a glimmer of hope that this one won’t sit sadly on a shelf somewhere because Joe Wright is on deck to direct the adaptation. The synopsis of the book from Good Reads: “It began for our narrator forty years ago when the family lodger stole their car and committed suicide in it, stirring up ancient powers best left undisturbed. Dark creatures from beyond the world are on the loose, and it will take everything our narrator has just to stay alive: there is primal horror here, and menace unleashed – within his family and from the forces that have gathered to destroy it. His only defense is three women, on a farm at the end of the lane. The youngest of them claims that her duckpond is an ocean. The oldest can remember the Big Bang.” But you know, it’s the man who made Hanna, Atonement and Anna Karenina taking on a modern literary genius. Do the details really even matter? And when we we getting that “Good Omens” movie anyway?…

It’s not a director known for mysteries. It’s a director that remains a mystery because author Neil Gaiman isn’t naming names yet. That’s smart, especially at this early stage of development. However, Gaiman has confirmed (via Digital Spy) that his novel “American Gods” – which sees a world of mythology transplanted to the United States through the eyes of an ex-con named Shadow – has a cinematographer and a director on board who are ready to develop it. It’s a director he admires, because Gaiman calls him a genius and mentions several Oscar wins. Those accolades are all well and good, but we’ll all have to hold our breath to see if the people with the money feel so strongly. But it will be worth it. Gaiman’s work is incredible, and seeing another one of his stories on screen is always something to get excited about. Now, let the speculation commence. What director has won more than one Oscar and might be considered a genius by another genius?

As the only literate Reject, it’s my duty to find the latest, the greatest and the untouched classics that would make great source material for film adaptations. I read so you don’t have to. The end of the world is coming pretty soon, and the best way to be prepared for it is to read this book by Neil Gaiman and Terry Pratchett. Don’t be caught with your pants down during the end times. Know your future, gird your loins, avoid gorgeous red heads that make you angry for no apparent reason, and keep a close eye on that neighborhood gang of kids that seems totally harmless. They’re probably hanging out with the Antichrist.

As the only literate Reject, it’s my duty to find the latest, the greatest and the untouched classics that would make great source material for film adaptations. I read so you don’t have to. There is a noticeable lack of the kind of imaginative children’s movies that echo the tone and style of Labyrinth, The NeverEnding Story or even The Adventures of Baron Munchausen. There are great family films out there these days, but many that set sail for the boundaries of imagination to meet fantastical characters along the way to a lesson. The Narnia movies come to mind, but they really fell flat. It’s time that we all went on another adventure together. I’m proposing that someone readies the Basset to set a course for somewhere we’ve never been before.

There’s absolutely no reason for me to explain to you about how author Neil Gaiman is a great writer. His accolades are too numerous to count in one little news blurb. But lets say this: Gaiman is one of the most iconic and prolific science fiction and fantasy writers of the modern era. Also prolific is the BBC science fiction series Doctor Who, for which Gaiman will be writing an upcoming episode.

Beowulf

Movie Reviews By Kevin Carr on November 16, 2007 | Comments (13)

Beowulf has everything you’d need for a great motion picture. It has a great story, an awesome conflict, incredible actors and all of Hollywood’s digital technology thrown behind it. The biggest stumbling block it has is its director.
