Trilogy

Between 1991 and 2004 Jeff Smith released 55 issues of his comic book “Bone” and built a legacy as one of the most beloved comic creators of all time. People love “Bone”. I mean, they’re crazy about it. It’s a shame then that it has never managed to get a film adaptation, despite living in the mires of developmental hell for quite a while now. The good news is there seems to be some new traction for the project, and the new stuff that’s popping up is even impressive enough to have Smith pleased with what he has seen. After both Paramount and Nickelodeon swung and missed with the “Bone” property, the rights got moved over to Warner Bros. where several scripts have been tried out but the third seems to be the charm. WB wants to turn their latest take onto the character into a three part, computer animated, 3D film series, and they’ve even put together a four minute short to show off what it would look like. Series creator Smith told the L.A. Times’ Hero Complex that he is, “actually excited about the movie for the first time in a long time.” That’s probably high praise coming from a guy who has reportedly waded through a ton of crappy film treatments of his baby.

Jackson chaining up a scantily clad Christina Ricci in Black Snake Moan, he helped Terrence Howard go from pimping to rapping in Hustle & Flow, and he’s even done a couple episodes of cable series like The Shield and Terriers. But it’s his upcoming remake of Footloose that has him in demand and fielding new opportunities left and right. That’s right, he remade Footloose, and industry people are loving it and throwing offers his way. That’s gotta be some good Footloose. So, given that Brewer now has a modicum of control over what his next project is going to be, what will he choose? He’s going to go after his dream of course, his passion project; he’s going to make a Tarzan movie. Warner Bros has been trying to get a new version of Edgar Rice Burroughs’s vine swinging, monkey loving, battle cry yelling hero together for quite a while. Probably because Tarzan is a name of something that people have heard, so clearly it’s a concept rife for another film treatment. While several attempts haven’t worked out, it now looks like they may have found their man. Brewer has come up with a treatment for the character that will tell the story of Tarzan over not just one, but three films. And he’s hoping to not only write the scripts, but make these movies his […]

Red Riding is a trilogy of films from the UK about a series of serial killings that terrorized Northern England from the late sixties on into the eighties. Like Bong Joon-ho’s Memories of Murder and David Fincher’s Zodiac, Red Riding is just as (if not more) interested in the dark machinations of the men surrounding the case as it is the mystery itself.
