Last time we talked about Daredevil Fox Studios were in talks with director Joe Carnahan. They wanted to get the film into production now in order to retain the rights to the character and not have them revert to Marvel. The Grey director produced some sizzle reels for his vision of The Man Without Fear, but Fox didn’t really like what they saw and decided to pass. With it now looking impossible to get the film into production by the October deadline, it seems Fox have given up and decided to let the rights go back to Marvel.

As we reported a couple of weeks ago, David Slade has dropped out of the Daredevil reboot for Fox Studios, which sent execs into overdrive searching for a willing victim to take up the difficult (ridiculous) task of getting the film into production by October. Why does it need to be in production by October? That’s when the rights revert back to Marvel and they can get their hands on a very recognisable Avenger. So, who is mad enough to take on this challenge? Read more »
If you’d seen any of the marketing for The Grey, you’d be forgiven for thinking that the movie was just a dumb action flick where Liam Neeson tapes up his fists with broken glass and punches the shit out of some wolves.

Hello. Yes, I know, it’s been awhile since my update. You must forgive me for stepping away from the laptop for a few days, but I had to go out and see that big shiny world and those weird people I call “friends”. I found myself in an icy cold and wintry London where I caught some brilliant comedy courtesy of the Alternative Comedy Memorial Society (check out their hashtag on Twitter – #ACMS. They do share it with a few other folk, though), live music by the fraktacular Wild Flag (My heart hurts for Carrie Brownstein), and even managed to catch a film – Haywire. I am back now and I’m going to use the ol’ Weekly Ricochet to catch up on some the news I missed. Let’s get to it. Read more »
You wouldn’t have thought it, would you? That Liam Neeson would become the go-to guy for bad-assery. He was meant to be a proper ac-tor, not some action icon destroying all that’s in his path. But hey, I for one am pleased. We get a hero who can emote and Liam gets star in films like The Grey.
So, it’s Alive with added wolves. Awesome. Read more »
