VIDEO GAME "MYST" GETS FILM ADAPTATION. "THE MUNSTERS" ARE COMING TO TV AGAIN. SAM RAIMI MAKING "EARTH DEFENSE FORCE" A HUGE SF FLICK ABOUT ALIEN INVASION

Popular video game MYST is heading to the big screen. The game appeared back in the 90's and it revolves around a secret civilization called D'ni, who have the ability to travel between different worlds. There were also novels based on the game which explained the origins of D'ni. One of the main characters is a young American woman who accidentally becomes involved with The D'ni.
Bryan Fuller, the creator of PUSHING DAISIES and the producer of HEROES and STAR TREK VOYAGER, is currently working on the NBC pilot for a reboot of the popular 60's TV series THE MUNSTERS according to "MovieWeb". The series will follow a family of lovable monsters who don't quite understand why the public reacts oddly to their presence and apparently it will be done as a mix of MODERN FAMILY and TRUE BLOOD.

Sam Raimi(SPIDERMAN) and Bill Block (DISTRICT 9) are preparing a huge sf movie EARTH DEFENSE FORCE for Warner Bros. The film starts with three alien attack fighters appearing from nowhere and destroying many of the world's landmarks and military installations before vanishing again.
After that NASA detects a radiation signature in a nearby galaxy, indicating a far more massive attack coming in about ten months, and world leaders set about trying to create super-aircraft and weapons that can fight off the coming invasion.

And you can also check out the adorable new poster for Disney's upcoming animated movie TANGLED, the adaptation of the popular RAPUNZEL fairy tale which comes out this November. The film will be set in a stunning CG fantasy world complete with the iconic tower, an evil witch, a gallant hero and of course the mysterious girl with the long golden tresses.

  2. I'm not sure about MYST, but all the other projects you talked about sound interesting.

  3. # One thing is for sure, the Myst movie is destined to have great visual!

    # While the best work from Disney in 3D shines through their relationship with Pixar, TANGLED should still capture the wonder of a truly beloved fairy tale.

  9. Forget the Myst movies, make another game. I played all the games and just loved them. I haven't really found another game like it. Do you know any cool games like that?

  10. I'm getting more excited about this one than I initially was. I like Zach Levi so it'll be fun hearing him lend his voice to this.

  11. All I can say is they better make Myst breathtaking. One of the landmark aspects of the game was its breathtaking vistas, and the intriguing storyline kept everyone coming back for the sequels. Having said all this, I would like to see it hit the big screen.

  12. I've never played Myst, but the visuals looked pretty cool -- might be good.

    I always liked the Munsters, but can they really do that much more that's new with them.

    And hooray! The world's famous landmarks are destroyed again from alien attack. I'm always down for that.

  13. A new Raimi film? Sounds cool. And the Myst film is a LONG time in the making, isn't it?

    I hope so too!

    @Vics
    I know you like that producer :)

    @Falen
    glad you're excited about it :)

    @Clarissa

    I like Levi too!

    @Eric
    glad you like it

    @Arlee
    ah, Arlee, I know what you mean, back when INDEPENDENCE DAY was out, I remember how the whole cinema was applauding when the aliens blew up the White House :)

    @Alex
    a little bit of sf is always a good news for you :)

  16. Hi DEZMOND - LOL The Tangled poster cracks me up. The horse holding a sword. She has her hair as a weapon - mmmm-k, and he has a cast-iron pan. Seriously funny. I'm so in.

    How are you?

  17. I never got around to watching The Munsters as a kid, so it'll be good to see the remake. I played Myst a few times a few years back, it'll be interesting to see how they make the transition to the big screen.
    I'm looking forward to Tangled, it looks to be a lot of fun :) If Raimi casts Bruce Campbell as the lead, then Earth defence force is gonna be incredible :P

  18. Oh, Oh!! Myst!! I played all games Myst, Riven,Uru -- they were what got me into digital art and animation. Exciting.

    And you gotta love the horse in Tangled.

  19. @Shells
    and notice the lizard on her head who is also in the fighting mood :)

    @Jamie
    I believe the Munsters were on before we were born :) Oh, what is it with you sf geeks and Bruce Campbell? :)))

    @Lynda
    so how do you like my avatar, Lynds, since you're into art and animation? :))

  20. As a huge video game fan, I must admit that I don't really have high expectations for Mist....
    Earth Defense Force, on the other hand, looks promising.

  21. Like most here, I'm also excited about Tangled. :)

    Myst was very well known in its time. I never played it, but I've seen some of its "worlds". I wonder how will it look on big screen?

    ReplyDelete
  22. yes, I imagine you like the colours in TANGLED :))

    ReplyDelete
  23. Colors, of course. But it also looks quite charming. :)
