Welcome back to the Award Seeking RadioBastard podcast, I’m drunk.

This time on the show, we’re talking about Star Wars and a bunch of stuff that isn’t Star Wars (but mainly Star Wars,) so buckle in for some talk about Star Wars ’cause we’ve got the teaser trailer, the careful and calm dissection of that trailer, adorabot naming rights, the finer points of DYI light sabery and, disbelief over the John Boyega hate.

Oh, and the other stuff? How about: (more…)

Word around the Internet has Oscar winner Jared Leto being considered for key role in David Ayer’s Suicide Squad that could quite possibly be the part of the Joker according to an individual close to the project over at Warner Bros. Leto is no stranger to the internet casting rumourville, he was previously  one of the frontrunners to take on the role of Marvel’s Doctor Strange, which eventually went to Benedict Cumberbatch. Warner Bros. and Leto’s representation did not immediately respond to a request for comment. (more…)

Is Warner Bros. Targeting Jaden Smith For ‘Static Shock’ Role?

Static-Shock

When it was announced last week that Static Shock would be making its way onto television screens or digital download as a live action series, and my hand stopped making that “Hell Yeah!” fist pump in the air, I felt a cold shiver. What could cause that immediate change? My brain caught up with my emotions and asked the question that has started many a comic book store argument, “Who the heck are they going to cast…. Oh hell no, not Jaden Smith.” Well, it didn’t take long for someone out there to make the connection and start the discussion rolling. (more…)

Smith, Robbie and Hardy “Close” to Signing Up for ‘Suicide Squad’

- 10-17-14Comics, Film Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

A report yesterday listed a proverbial “Murderer’s Row” of big screen celebs being courted to join the big screen version of Suicide Squad, the movie based on the DC Comics team of the same name. Ryan Gosling, Will Smith, Margot Robbie, and Tom Hardy were the names being brandied about, although the reporting was a bit iffy, as if to say that these were names on someone’s wish list, possibly director David Ayer (Fury), and not a list of people actually being courted for parts. Well, new reporting today seems to indicate that the previous report was at least 75 per cent prophetic. Smith, Hardy and Robbie are indeed, apparently, “close to signing” on to DC and Warner Bros.’ next big comic book movie. (more…)

‘I Am Legend’ Is About To Be Rebooted. Again.

- 10-02-14Film Posted by Rush Urbalejo

I Am

I Am Legend‘, the 1954 novel penned by Richard Matheson, is a wonderful piece of horror fiction that has been adapted for the big screen several times and was even the inspiration behind George Romero’s zombie-movie pioneer, Night of the Living Dead.  Most recently, the novel spawned a big budget movie of the same name, starring Will Smith as a virologist caught in the middle of an outbreak that has turned pretty much every other human on Earth into zombies.  The tale of loneliness and survival managed to take in $585mil worldwide and rumors of another entry in the franchise have swirled for years now.  According to Deadline, it appears that Warner Brothers has finally found a way to bring Legend back to the big screen, though in a completely different way than had previously been rumored.  If you were hoping for a sequel or even a prequel, you can finally stop waiting. If the rumor is correct, WB will actually be rebooting the entire franchise.  Again. (more…)

‘Independence Day’ Sequel Makes a Move on 2016

- 11-13-13Film Posted by Adam A. Donaldson

Twentieth Century Fox was so eager to get a new Independence Day in front of our eyes that they crammed it into an already busy summer schedule by wedging it in to open on July 3rd, 2015. But now, perhaps sensing that they were rushing things, or perhaps sensing that opening somewhere between Avengers: Age of Ultron and Batman Vs Superman was a miscalculation, Fox is pushing back the long-in-the-works alien invasion sequel to 2016.
