What is Movie News After Dark? It’s a nightly column about movie news that wasn’t big enough to get quality real estate on the home page. Or the stuff that everyone else missed. But you won’t miss it! Because it’s all right here!
“I think he has a script ready to start of a new film, a Southern. I think it’s really exciting. It’s another new story and a fresh piece of material that he is channeling at the moment.” That’s Uma Thurman, talking about Quentin Tarantino’s next film.
Warner Bros. continues to insist that you watch movies on Facebook. They’ve sweetened the deal by adding Inception to the mix. Also, Yogi Bear is available. Get you some, Facebook users.
Things are moving slowly on the reboot of the Jack Ryan series, which is due to star Chris Pine. Chances are that he’ll be slipping back into the role of James T. Kirk first. That said, this new flick sounds cool, has Steve Zaillian working on rewrites and still has Lost man Jack Bender in the director’s chair. This is one of those reboots we could benefit from having around.
“We used ‘Raiders’ as a template when we were developing the story, but we sort of moved away from it as time went on. This is futurism in the 1940s; if you went to 1942 and thought of what the future would be, that’s what the approach was. The villain has a much more futuristic style and his science and his apparatus — he has a whole design motif that is beyond 1942 but it’s what you might have perceived as futuristic from a 1942 vantage point. So we went away from the ‘Raiders’ template in that sense but where we sort of stuck with it was in the structure and the action and the way the main characters are thrown into these situations and then have to get themselves out of them.” Joe Johnston, talking about how Indiana Jones gave inspiration to Captain America: The First Avenger.
