A little over three months after HBO Programming President Casey Bloys announced during the cable giant's summer Television Critics Association (TCA) session that filming on the Jane Goldman-penned Game of Thrones prequel series The Long Night (tentative title) had wrapped, Deadline Hollywood is reporting exclusively that HBO has decided to not move forward with the […]
Word just came down that HBO has officially put the order out for a Game of Thrones prequel series pilot. The show will obviously air sometime after the series finale. Entertainment Weekly reports that Jane Goldman (Kingsman: The Secret Service, X-Men: First Class, Kick-Ass) and author George R.R. Martin are writing the prequel series, and an official series […]
With Game of Thrones looking to end its series run next year with a six-episode eighth season, HBO has apparently commissioned a fifth Game of Thrones prequel series penned by show writer/co-executive producer Bryan Cogman. Cogman joins the four previously announced writers who are each working on their own Thrones prequel series: Max Borenstein (Kong: Skull […]
Reviewed by Jeb D. Inexplicably, Jason Flemyng is not in this film. Kingsman: The Secret Service is the second Mark Millar comic adaptation from director Matthew Vaughn and co-writer Jane Goldman. As he did with Kick-Ass, Vaughn has taken a Millar comic that was violent, crass, and cynical, and turned it into a film that […]
I worked hard to get the straightest answers I could.
Bleeding Cool ran a summary of the twitterstorm that kicked off in the light of Jonathan Ross being announced at the host of this year's Hugo Awards at LonCon, WorldCon in London, with our own particular take. It got linked to from a few places. In the aftermath of Jonathan Ross withdrawing, a few events […]
A Summer full of superheroes, eh? Wait until you get a load of this...
Using just the same model that brought us Kick-Ass, Matthew Vaughn has co-written an adaptation of Mark Millar and Dave Gibbons' The Secret Service with Jane Goldman, is funding the project independently, and will set about shooting the thing this Summer and Autumn.
In the press holding room at the Iron Man 3 junket earlier in the week, one of my international colleagues shared a little something from his chat with Robert Downey Jr...
It's almost like they're making this film just for Brendon.
Jane Goldman last week let slip that Hammer are in development on a spin-off from The Woman in Black, and now details are getting shaded in as to what this will actually entail. Angels of Death is to be set 40 years after the original story, so presumably after the second World War, perhaps as […]
Jane Goldman is typically candid about a couple of upcoming projects.
Susan Hill's 1983 ghost story The Woman in Black was a very successful novel in its own right, before being adapted into a popular TV movie, a phenomenal stage production, and now, a new movie, starring Daniel Radcliffe. The film did very well in the US weekend, and audience word of mouth was strong. It […]
After the news broke that Jane Goldman has been tasked to create a screenplay adaptation of Nate Simpson's so-far so-extraordinary comic series Nonplayer, Simpson himself took to the Bleeding Cool forums to shade in some more details. But I still thought there were a few points worth clarifying. Kindly, Simpson has done just that, dotting […]
One of Bleeding Cool's favourite comic books of last year (if not the last few years) was Nonplayer, Nate Simpson's rich and detailed fantasy about a woman escaping from her drab real life into a digitally-created otherworld. My biases and predilections being what they are, I think it would make a superb movie. And so […]
Out on February 10th is The Woman in Black, an adaptation of Susan Hill's phenomenally successful ghost story by screenwriter Jane Goldman and director James Watkins. Before then (as soon as the embargo lapses) I'll be bringing you a great piece in which all three, Hill, Goldman and Watkins, talk us through their techniques for […]
A nice round-up of film and TV goings on - Star Trek, Spider-Man, Sherlock and more.
At this very moment, some friends of Bleeding Cool are watching The Woman in Black and I hope to have some feedback soon. In the meantime, my search for early responses turned up this brand new Candian trailer for the film. I'm still not sure about this one. There's some real pedigree in the credits, […]
This extended TV spot for The Woman in Black was cut to fit in a 60 second slot. I wish there were a lot more trailers like this. Indeed, I'd turn up half an hour early for any movie if I was going to get 30 of these end-to-end before hand.* The Woman in Black […]
Daniel Radcliffe takes a steam train across England, off to some stately old pile of stones in the countryside, somewhere remote. When he arrives, he's going to have his eyes opened to the supernatural, and evil forces are getting to set about him. But enough about Harry Potter, here's that exact same thing in the […]
