Good evening El Moochadores! This post is going to be a little different tonight in that I’m going to first talk about…
Normally, I leave this sort of stuff to the other geek blogs and web sites, but this news is just too damn awesome. Both stories came to me via Geek Tyrant and I was super happy to find out that…
Judge Dredd will get an R Rating
It looks like we’re going to get a movie worthy the comic book! According to the article I read on Geek Tyrant the MPAA has given an “R” rating to the upcoming Judge Dredd film. A 2010 quote from the films producer, Andrew Macdonald read:
The main thing about Dredd is that it’s a fantastic comic that was completely messed up 20 years ago. Our idea is to make a very hard, R-rated, gritty, realistic movie of Dredd in Megacity, so we’ve got to get the tone right. He’s not going to take off his helmet. His bike is going to feel real. He’s going to hit people and it’s going to feel real. There’s been a change in comic-book movies; they were treated unseriously and now they’re treated seriously.
Fan-fucking-tastic, says I! The film will star Karl Urban and is directed by Peter Travis.
Robert Rodriguez will Shoot Fire and Ice!
Not literally of course, but the famous director is going begin filming an adaptation of the 1983 animation, Fire and Ice. Fire and Ice was a fantasy story by world famous artist Frank Frazetta and was just the right thing for young D&D rolling nerds to fall in love with. It had epic magical battles, Axe wielding heros, and those wonderful, round-bottom, scantly clad girls that Frazetta painted so damn well. There’s some junk in the trunk, but it’s golden. According to the article, Rodriguez will beging filming right after he finishes Sin City II. A quote from Rodriguez said:
We’re almost done with the script, we’ve got it pretty much 70 percent there – I’m really excited about that one.
I think the timing is going to work out just right and we’ll have a finished script in the next month or so. So that we can start lengthier pre-production and we can go right into pre-production – well, we’re actually in pre-production, sort of, or we’ve been doing a lot of the previsualization. But that would be the next thing after Sin City.
Groovy! Now, who’s the brave, but curvy, actress their going to get to play Princess Teegra and get into that tiny blue bikini? Any casting ideas out there?
and now for something completely different…
Mileena Vs. Kitana Live Action Trailer
Okay El Moochadores, that’s all for tonight. I’ve got to put some work in on the latest Moocast and hopefully have one ready to post in the next night or two. Good night!
