I’ve been waiting for something to see from the upcoming animated film Monsters Vs. Aliens since the first word came down on the film, but information has been slow in the coming, to say the least. Finally a trailer has arrived, and thankfully it was worth the wait!
This morning we’ve come one step closer to seeing Platinum Comics’ Atlantis Rising realized as a film. THR reports that Awake (DVD review) writer/director Job Harold is being courted to write the film for Dreamworks.
Variety reports tonight that the legendary actor and director Clint Eastwood is in talks with Dreamworks to take on the job of directing a supernatural thriller ominously dubbed Hereafter.

Some good news from the floor of AFM for indie filmmaker and friend of the site Oren Peli, who’s remaking his own Paranormal Activity. The original had a packed screening at AFM and, according to Screen Daily, has received attention from all over the world.

Such is the premise (well, sort of) for Platinum Studios' Atlantis Rising, which The Hollywood Reporter learned has been bought up by Dreamworks for a live-action adaptation.
Wow, it’s all about literary adaptations this morning, eh? Which I have to say is a welcome change from story after story about remakes...
