CLARITY WILL PREMIER THIS VALENTINE’S DAY, 2010, at 7PM! BE HERE TO SOLVE THE MYSTERY!

Future Film Makers, a club I’ve ran at Salisbury University for the past few years, has wrapped filming and production of its first Feature Film, BRIDE, written and directed by Mike Woodard. I act as producer on the project, and group favorites Thomas England (Man of Action) and James Howe (Gullman, The Spy Wars series), costar in it along with. Steve “Siggy” Young is also a huge part of the production, playing the villainous Professor.

The story is about Cory Hertz, a sophomore at Salisbury University who begins a research project that will change his life forever. Investigating the tragic disappearance from school over a decade ago of the long lost student, Mea Bridell, Cory uncovers a plot of love, obsession, and revenge that leads him on a chase to discover her fate. With his reluctant but faithful friend Douglas in tow, the two spiral down their own path of madness, reaching for the truth until they finally encounter the dangerous person and the malicious grudge that rendered a young love to it’s bitter end.

The finished film will be premiering in Salisbury sometime in October (probably around Halloween) and possibly double featuring with Strike a Pose Films!!! Classic, Curse of Bodangofish.

This just FRIGGIN IN! Gungrave, your humble writer’s favorite anime/gangster story/revenge tale, has officially been greenlighted for its own FEATURE FILM. This news comes from VARIETY so you know its not a joke!

My favorite image from the show

Brandon Heat can't cover his eyes from death in a defining moment.

Here’s an excerpt from the article:

Convergence is aiming to produce both projects as live-action features with budgets in the $30 million-$35 million range by tapping into financing sources from its strategic partners in Asia. Tim Kwok, the banner’s topper, will produce, with Yasuaki Nagoshi from Red Entertainment exec producing “Gungrave,”

Convergence is the company currently adapting the King of Fighters film, and who knows how that is going to turn out! Some promotional images for that can be found here.

As for the description, if you didn’t already know, GUNGRAVE is about “a lone figure who rises in the ranks of a crime syndicate only to be murdered by his best friend and then resurrected as a harbinger of death who exacts revenge on those that wronged him.” I can promise you all that is only the tip of the iceberg. The show follows that main character, Brandon Heat, through a lot of development, and tests his loyalty to his code and his friends.

Here is my main stipulation with this announced project:

Gungrave is pretty much the only Anime I TRULY still love. I watch it every chance I get for its poetic symbolism, its quiet main character, and its INCREDIBLE finale that is pretty much a dialog based shootout of characters reliving their past selfs in an artistic display of memory-based “combat.” Find it and watch it to see what I mean, but overall my point is I’m going to figure out how to contact these guys, write a draft of the screenplay, and submit it before they make their final decisions! MY WILL BE DONE.

Merciless avenger, Beyond the Grave

Merciless avenger, Beyond the Grave

GUNGRAVE was also the subject of my first AMV, and the first time I tried out Sony Vegas. This simple video will show any naysayers out there that the show isn’t just about action but a deep emotional core to the characters…or something like that.

Either way, give it a watch and a comment, and let me know if you’ve seen GUNGRAVE. Also- what do you all think about these movies coming? Tekken, KOF, and all that jazz are getting a bum wrap. They might as well let a fan boy like me write one on something completely unknown, right? Couldn’t HURT I’d say!

Predators Update

vlcsnap-2549636

One of the greatest movie monsters of all time is getting the Reboot treatment, as Robert Rodriguez (Sin City, Desperado, Spy Kids) is producing and developing the new Predator film, PREDATORS.

Hired to helm the flick is rising director Nimrod Antal, who’s films do not properly reflect his name: the man has some intelligence with his work as he has proven succesfully with KONTROLL and ARMORED. Even Vacancy, though simplistic, wasn’t that bad. Mostly thanks to Luke Wilson, but the directing was solid.

However, I’m still not completely sold on this guy. With Rodriguez behind the scenes, at least we KNOW 100% it will be full of cool stuff–explosions, violence, and maturity (of at least the masculine variety).

However, its also the plot synopsis that I’m unsure of at this point. From the interview with Rodriguez himself:

I can’t go too much into the story right now, because we’re still writing. But it still involves a very intense group of people stranded on a Predator planet discovering unspeakable horrors (that are not always from outside their group). So like the original movie, the title does have a double meaning.
Aliens was a different take on the Alien idea, and an original movie in it’s own right, and that’s what we want to do with this.
