Previously known as Stuff and Things, Stuff We Missed is exactly that: stuff we missed. Consider this the Costco of blog posts, where you save time and read your movie news in bulk. Yum.
-- Will Watchmen hit theaters on March 6th, as scheduled, or will those evil demons at 20th Century Fox prevent fans from seeing their beloved film on time simply because they hate human beings and everything they stand for? Okay, maybe there's a little more to it, but good news is both sides have agreed to let a judge settle this on January 20th. It's complicated, but we'll know then whether the film will arrive on time or not.
-- Our friends over at io9 came across a few images of early concept art for that new Judge Dredd flick (see them below). These come from comic artist Jock, who also worked on Losers, 2000 A.D and Green Arrow: Year One. The images are all tagged with the name Rebellion, which is the company behind the 2003 Dredd video game, and is also producing the new film.
-- The ASC (American Society of Cinematographers) have dished out their nominations for best of the year, with nods going to Revolutionary Road, The Reader, Slumdog Millionaire (my choice) and The Curious Case of Benjamin Button. a href="http://marketsaw.blogspot.com/2009/01/must-see-first-look-at-jim-carrey-as.html">--Marketsaw discovered the first teaser poster for Robert Zemeckis' A Christmas Carol, starring Jim Carrey (see to the right; click to enlarge).
-- Sundance doesn't happen till next week, but Sony Pictures Classics doesn't want to wait to snatch up the film Rudo y Cursi, as they're already in talks to acquire the rights (THR). Directed by Carlos Cuaron (Alfonso's brother), and starring Diego Luna and Gael Garcia Bernal, the film tells of two soccer-playing brothers whose rivalry takes off along with their respective careers.
-- Do you have what it takes to be the next McLovin? Universal Pictures is holding an open casting call in New York for young men between the ages of 15-17 for an upcoming comedy starring Meryl Streep, Alec Baldwin and Steve Martin. They're looking for some dude to play Edward, "an awkward, funny, precocious 17-year-old high school senior," and they're looking to "discover" the next "Michael Cera/McLovin type." So, if that's you, get on down to Ripley Grier Studios (520 8th avenue, 16th floor, studio 17B) on January 10. Sign in is from 10am to 1pm. Head here for more info.
