TIM BURTON & JOSH BROLIN MAKING "THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME"! RINKO KIKUCHI JOINS KEANU REEVES IN "47 RONIN" SAMURAI SAGA! VIDEO GAME "DEVIL MAY CRY" FILM ADAPTATION!

Now this will be a gorgeous team in a not so gorgeous film: adorable singer and actress Mandy Moore and charming Rodrigo Santoro will play together in FALLING SLOWLY. According to "Variety" the upcoming supernatural drama will revolve around a couple whose apartment is haunted by some mysterious dark presence. The film will be directed by Chris Sparkling who wrote another popular horror BURIED and this will be his directorial debut.
SHORT HEADLINES *Popular video game DEVIL MAY CRY, about a white haired young man named Dante who must avenge his mother's murder by slaying demons, will be adapted into a movie. Sony wants to make
a franchise out of it. *Japanese Oscar nominee Rinko Kikuchi has joined Keanu Reeves in 47 RONIN, the 18th century adventure about 47 warriors who sought vengeance from the tyrant who banished them from his kingdom.

It seems Tim Burton will be busy again. He will direct a new version of the famous Victor Hugo story THE HUNCHBACK OF NOTRE DAME for Warner Bros. The story about Quasimodo, a deformed and hunchbacked bell-ringer of the Notre Dame cathedral who tragically falls in love with beautiful gypsy named Esmerelda will probably have Josh Brolin in the title role of the tragic French hunchback according to "MovieWeb".
PS don't forget to drop over to HAIRNETS AND HOPES to tell our dear Vics how beautiful and gorgeous her new Dezz-made banner is :))

  1. There's nothing like the disney version of The Hunback of Notre Dame. Why bother?
    I do like the cast for that horror movie. Mandy Moore is great, maybe they can pull off a great film, we'll see.

  3. Ahhhh! You were not kidding my good friend, Dez. Great redemption has been attained by putting up that magnificent photo of Monica Bellucci!

    Mandy Moore looks damn good too :)

  4. I love the story of the hunchback and Tim Burton should do an incredible job. And I am so happy Rodrigo Santoro is on screen again. It's been far too long since 300.

    Love your banner at Vics' site. So talented, Dez. :)

  6. the haunted apartment might be good or it might be the same ol' same ol'.

    Under Tim Burton's direction the Hunchback may be good.

    @Melissa
    Tim will probably make a visually stunning film out of it. And we do need more Rodrigo in Hollywood :) Glad you like the banner :)

    @Raw
    yes, it's true, although visual master pieces, most of his movies in last five or six years have been rather boring and bad in story telling

    glad you like it, Suzy ;)

    @Arlee
    yep, the plot is quite typical for that kind of genre, but I do like the actors they've cast.

    @RaShelle
    isn't it beautiful? I have a number of her pics, but this one is my favourite as well, it just shows her torso and boob in a very lovely way and plus she has the most beautiful face!

  15. I haven't seen Mandy Moore in some time.

    The Hunchback sounds good.

    I have been away on business and the sorry hotel only offered internet in the lobby and dining area, so I am quite far behind in the blogging community.

  16. Oddly enough, I'm looking forward to the Devil May Cry movie....

  17. Rinko Kikuchi is the one from Babel right? Y'know I'm really looking forward to '47 Ronin' now, as I'm kinda in a Keanu phase for some reason. He'd be great in a Samurai flick and not only 'cause he's part Asian.

    Oh, lucky Mandy... Rodrigo is muy caliente! :D

  18. @Avalon
    "sorry hotel" he he he he ... :)))

    @Andrew
    well, it does sound kinda interesting with all those alluring characters

    @Flixy
    yep, Rinko is from BABEL. I'm not sure what to think about RONIN, I mean Keanu as a samurai? It will be crazy and interesting :)

  19. I think Tim Burton will do great with the Hunchback of Notre Dame though was unsure about Brolin for the role at first, it is growing on me though

    ReplyDelete
  20. Burton always does great flicks. Be interesting to watch the development on Devil May Care.

  21. Mandy is charming & the plot sounds pretty good. Will be interesting to see what Burton ocmes up with on this one.

  22. @Dempsey
    yep, it's not as if we're going to see his face of body anyway :)

    @Alex
    DEVIL MAY CRY not CARE :) It could be an interesting horror.

    @MPax
    Mandy is adorable :) And I just hope Burton won't put Johnny Depp to play Esmeralda :)
