I for one am excited to see the Big G make a return to the screen. I have hope this will erase the travesty committed in the 1998 movie.
I've always had a spot in my heart for Gojira, it was the coolest part of Sunday's growing up, watching Monster Island flicks with a follow up of Kung-fu. Both I'd say probably had the worst dubbing in the history of television. :)
Here's a link with a video of Gareth Edwards talking briefly about the movie:

World War Z

16 October 2012 - 07:30 AM

From wiki:

World War Z is an upcoming post-apocalyptic horror film directed by Marc Forster and written by J. Michael Straczynski and Matthew Michael Carnahan. It is based on the novel of the same name by Max Brooks. Brad Pitt stars as Gerry Lane, a worker at the United Nations, as he searches the globe for information that can stop the zombie outbreak that is bringing down nations.
Plan B Entertainment secured the film rights in 2007 and Forster was approached to direct. In 2009, Carnahan was hired to rewrite the script to the film. Filming began in July 2011 in Malta on an estimated $125 million budget, before moving to Glasgow in August 2011 and Budapest in October 2011. Originally set for a December 2012 release, the production suffered some setbacks. In June 2012, the film's release date was pushed back and the crew returned to Budapest for a seven weeks of additional shooting. Damon Lindelof was hired to rewrite the third act, but did not have the time to finish the script and Drew Goddard was hired to rewrite it. The reshoots are due to take place between September or October 2012.
World War Z is due to be released on June 21, 2013.

From cinemablend.com:

Saved for the very end of the presentation was the first trailer for World War Z, the massive zombie apocalypse movie that's been mired in release date shifts, reshoots, and constant rumors of friction behind the scenes. Like Pain & Gain this footage could easily be the first trailer, but it also elides plot to focus on juicy bits of action, in this case shots of zombie hordes cascading over city traffic or fortified walls, and Brad Pitt's character being separated from his family (including The Killing star Meirelle Enos) to help fight the zombie plague. The footage opened with a tense scene of Pitt's family trapped in traffic while an arriving zombie army brings chaos, and featured bits of scenes that gave a sense to the film's scale-- an official-looking clock counting down the names of the dead, and official-looking people in a situation room reporting how other countries are doing as poorly as America at fighting back the invasion.

Zombie purists may want to know that the zombies of World War Z are clearly the fast-moving variety, though we didn't get a clear enough look at them to learn much else. Though Max Brooks's novel of the same name is an oral history told through scattered vignettes from around the globe,World War Z seems to have the scale of a massive disaster film, with Pitt's character somehow in the center of the resistance. As much as fans of the book might not welcome that change, a global-scale zombie movie sounds like the exact right way to freshen up the genre at this point, and World War Z seems to contain some terrifying set pieces to make it worth the wait. We'll find out how it fares for ourself when World War Z opens, at last, June 21 next year.

Fast moving zombies.... <_<

New Star Trek series in the works?

25 August 2011 - 01:01 PM

David Foster of the company 1947 Entertainment revealed that he has already outlined a plan, not only for the show's pilot, but for the entire series.

"The series concept is fully developed, subject to change of course, with a solid five to seven-year series plan, pilot script and a conceptualised finale that intends to define Star Trek for generations, extensive character bios, costume and ship/set designs, and more," Foster told Trek Web.

Foster went on to insist that the plans are serious.

"This is a drastic departure from the typical eight to ten-page treatment of the previously pitched Star Trek series ideas that have not included even a pilot script," Foster said. "The series is highly energised with a much younger cast, and uses cutting-edge future technologies with newly envisioned special effects and designs."

Foster teased the theme for the prospective series, declaring: "If evil wore the face of a hero, would you recognise it? If freedom came in the likeness of your oppressors, would you accept it? If you were your own enemy, who would be victorious?"

The project, which is still looking for an executive producer, will eventually be pitched to CBS.

I just hope two things...Rick Berman has nothing to do with and second...Rick Berman have to do with it...this show needs to be Star Trek, not Time Trek.
