Sometimes we get the coolest stuff from the areas you would not expect. Back in January when I Am Legend was filing near the Brooklyn Bridge, Will Smith took the time to hang out with some of the Coast Guard team he was working with and got a cool pic with them, which a source just forwarded to us. The other pic you can see below is two coast guard members in front of a very serious looking military vehicle on the set; apparently this scene is a flashback Smith’s character has to when things starting going to shit all around him at the start of the outbreak.
The official site for the Korean Film Council is reporting that filming on Blood: The Last Vampire started back on March 15th with Ronnie (Freddy Vs. Jason) Yu still at the helm.
Everyone who starts their filmmaking career off with a low budget interpretation of what they see as a grand concept wishes, at one point or another, that they could just go back and remake it. Not in the George Lucas sense of more or less ruining the original film necessarily, but I’m sure all filmmakers have wished their first works were closer to their true vision.
It is 7pm on January 23rd. The air is crisp as winter has set in. I'm at the South Street Seaport in New York City, where the usually serene landscape has just been over-run with citizens fleeing the island in terror. It seems a plaugue is ripping its way through the populace, turning ordinary humans into nocturnal, bloodthirsty creatures. Time to get the hell out of Manhattan.
No vampires, no desolation, just Will Smith and a dog; that’s all we get from Warner Bros. for the first pic from I Am Legend.
We’re still waiting for Park Chan-wook (Oldboy, Sympathy for Lady Vengeance) to sit down with someone, anyone, and dish all the details about his upcoming horror movie, which as been called both Bat and Evil Live (the second of which is more common and I like better). Until such an interview happens all we can tell you is that it’s a vampire movie, sort of, and the first bit of casting has been done for it.
They’re kinda blury, out of focus and don’t really show a lot, but the set of the pics that just showed up over on Ain’t It Cool are the first shots from I Am Legend that give us any indication that they’re actually going for a horror element. The casting of Will Smith, on the other hand, does not.
Today we received word from filmmakers Michael Roesch and Peter Scheerer that their latest horror outing, Brotherhood of Blood, is in its final stages with the sound mix being completed at Herold Studios. "After months of post production, it’s great to see the movie finally on the big screen," said Roesch, who's knee-deep in the final sound mix for the vampire film. Ken Foree, Rachel Grant, Sid Haig, and Jason Connery star.
30 Days of Night creator Steve Niles just posted a new blog on his MySpace page with the first pic from the movie adaptation of his incredibly popular comic, scanned from the latest issue of Wizard.
Just wanted to give all of you slavering for more 30 Days of Night info out there something to tide you over, if that’s possible.
Steve Niles has been a busy guy as usual, juggling tons of new projects both in and out of the comic world. Apparently the last few days have been more productive than usual because this morning there are all sorts of cool new goodies over on his MySpace page.
I know it’s probably not very hardcore, blood-n-guts horror fan purebred of me to admit to liking romantic comedy, but I hope you guys will see past that and still take me seriously. And I hope you ladies think my sensitivity is sexy as hell.
Paul W.S. Anderson. Castlevania. Almost makes ya shudder, doesn’t it?
With cameras ready to roll on the long-awaited new version of Richard Matheson’s I Am Legend, casting rumors are swirling in force around the production. Though it was initially mentioned shortly after the announcement of Will Smith in the lead that Johnny Depp would have a role in the apocalypse saga as well, it turns out that was all blown smoke.
Ronnie Yu recently chatted it up with the folks over at Ain’t It Cool about his latest martial arts flick, Fearless, and during the course of the conversation the subject of Blood: The Last Vampire was brought up. Yu will be making the wildly popular anime into a live action feature film with shooting to take place in Melbourne, Australia as well as Tokyo.
