Kings epic novel The Stand will become a feature film

06 Feb 2011


I don't know. Unless its a trilogy I can not see this working. I remember reading the Stand when I was a teenager and thinking holy crap this is a large book. Not only was it large it had so many characters and so much going on that I can not possibly fantom how in the world they would cram it in a 2 hour or so movie. Even with a huge budget. If you think about it the mini series that so many remembered falls short of the novel in some areas.

Godzilla lands Gareth Edwards as director

07 Jan 2011

Source Hollywood Reporter

The Legendary Pictures Godzilla film is now in full motion with the announcement of Gareth Edwards as the man who will direct this project. Great Choice in my opinion. Monsters was an amazing indie film that was made with little to nothing funds. Matter of fact it was done with a micro budget of 15,ooo and was about alien life forms that spread throughout central America leading to the quarantine of half of Mexico. The U.S. and Mexican militaries are battling to contain the creatures, with a wall stretching along the American border. The story follows Andrew, an American photojournalist helping his wealthy employer's daughter, Samantha, get back to America. Their journey takes them across Central America and eventually into the 'infected zone'

Edwards’ Monsters work has won the filmmaker three British Independent Film Awards, including nods for best director, best achievement in production and best technical achievement. It also landed him work with Timur Bekmambetov on an epic sci-fi project that he is writing as a directing vehicle

Godzilla will be done by Legendary Pictures and Co Produced by Warner Brothers and will be released sometime in 2012.

So waht is ready Play One about you may ask for those fans of Cline's you know something about it. For us that saw it on the web and had to go searching here is the novel info that I found so far from Aint it Cool News.

READY PLAYER ONE - In the near future, outcast teenager Wade Watts escapes from his bleak surroundings by logging in to the OASIS, a globally networked virtual utopia where users can lead idyllic alternate lives. When the eccentric billionaire who created the OASIS dies, he offers up his vast fortune as the prize in an elaborate treasure hunt. Along with gamers from around the world Wade joins the adventure, and quickly finds himself pitted against powerful corporate foes who will do anything, in the oasis or the real world, to reach the treasure first. Think Willy Wonka, The Matrix, and Avatar all rolled into one.
