Tony Scott: 1944 – 2012.

When the news broke earlier today that British-born filmmaker Tony Scott had fallen to his death from the Vincent Thomas bridge in an apparent suicide the web was alive with speculation about his possible motive.It’s a shame that Scott might be remembered mainly for his biggest, silliest film – the quintessentially 1980s Top Gun -[...]

Has Mark Millar's Busy Schedule Killed The Nemesis Movie?

I remember it well, not least because Bleeding Cool were the very first to tell you when director Tony Scott became attached.It was also memorable for the casting rumours that kept bubbling up, often from Millar himself Was Johnny Depp going to star in the film?

This Unofficial Nemesis Motion Comic Is More Than A Motion Comic

Striking me somewhere between The Kid Stays in the Picture and the opening titles of Zack Snyder's Watchmen, this work-in-progress motionalisification of Millar and McNiven's Nemesis has a whole lot more going for it than most motion comics.It's apparently being intended as a music video, but that's going to require a little bit of licensing[...]

If not, you're about to.Brothers Ridley and Tony Scott are about to redefine the way we look at period dramas with an upcoming BBC 4-part miniseries, entitled The[...]


24 Movie Is Hanging In Limbo No Matter What Kiefer Sutherland Says

Maybe Tony Scott has a pitch that he's going to propose, maybe not.I think the one thing that made 24 interesting (barely) was its real-time-ish gimmick, spreading a solid day of action over a season This won't translate to a two-hour film so easily, and as such, I don't really see the point in making[...]

Denzel Washington Tells Us Five Things, Most Of Them About Unstoppable

Tony Scott's take on the runaway train subgenre is Unstoppable, a film loosely based upon real events that saw a train run wild on the tracks of Cleveland And I mean loosely The film's second-billed star is Denzel Washington, and Bleeding Cool were lucky enough to talk with him recently about the film, and other[...]

Why Is The New Superman Movie Making Harry Knowles Sigh?

Sigh. It's the sigh that's the interesting bit.It reads just like a) Knowles is saying there's another director in the frame - nay, at the head of the pack and b) it's somebody to make you sigh.But the list already had Tony Scott on it.. who could he be sighing about? I thought he liked everything...Thanks[...]
