22 Potential Directors for Kick-Ass 2
Why: Nolan is presumably on most studios watch list with a real eye for gripping audiences with heart-pounding action and emotionally taut stories, all in service of intelligent, thought-provoking stories.              Key Scene: A climatic fight sequence between Kick-Ass and Red Mist is shot on IMAX cameras (naturally) but ironically broadcast live in YouTube in the film. The fight ends in a truce before Kick-Ass manages to convince Red Mist to dissolve his father’s company…  It’s just one of many stand-out scenes that makes Kick-Ass 2 the greatest comic-book sequel ever made. 
    Likelihood: Don’t go holding your breath. Nolan has his eyes firmly set on other projects, namely a Howard Hughes biopic…

Source Code to become TV series
CBC has picked up the rights to Duncan Jones’ magnificent Source Code, and is aiming turn turn it into a weekly telly series. The pitch is as follows: “Three former federal agents who are part of a top-secret program use Source Code technology to jump into the consciousness of people involved in tragic events.”  Which sounds a lot like Quantum Leap meets… Quantum Leap.[FOR THE FULL STORY, CLICK ON JAKE OR FOLLOW THIS LINK]

Duncan Jones to replace Aronofsky on Wolverine?
Duncan Jones spoke of his fondness for X-Man Wolverine at this weekend’s Kapow! Comic Con in London. Since it was announced that Darren Aronofsky would no longer be directing Origins sequel The Wolverine, many possible replacements have been mooted, with Jones a firm fan favourite.Speaking to IGN, Jones said that the success of his latest, Source Code, had led to him being asked “to take a few meetings about some of the more studio films.” When he was then asked what he thought of the ‘character’ Wolverine, Jones replied with a grin: “I think he’s a great character, and I don’t want to go on dangerous ground here, but I’d say he’s more interesting to me than Batman. I think they’ve made a very successful run of films with that and I think a good Wolverine film could be an amazing thing.”

And it’s about as dramatic and loopy as you’d hope it would be. Forgoing the story’s pivotal train, it’s a more abstract offering that plays around with the film’s plot.

Duncan Jones’ Source Code gets a trailer

The trailer for Source Code, Duncan Jones’ Moon follow-up, has hit the web. The film stars Jake Gyllenhaal as a soldier who is repeatedly sent back in time to relive the final eight minutes of a commuter’s life just before a train is blown up. Groundhog Day comparisons are inevitable, but there’s also something of the Twelve Monkeys about this, with just a dash of Quantum Leap thrown in.
