DYNAMIC TRAILER FOR "BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: BLOOD & CHROME"! "THE RED STAR" COMIC FANTASY FILM! DRAGON "SLAYER" FILM FROM MARTIN HELGELAND! DRAGON EGG ON "GAME OF THRONES" POSTER

It seems we shall have a fantasy day at HOLLYWOOD SPY today, people. According to "The Hollywood Reporter", Martin Helgeland, the son of famous
screenwriter Brian Helgeland, has sold his fantasy script for a movie called SLAYER to Legendary Pictures. The story is set in modern day, and centres on a doctor whose father recently passed away. He discovers that his estranged dad was actually a slayer of dragons and other evil creatures, and comes to learn that he must also become a slayer. Martin's bigshot daddy will off course produce the flick. Speaking of dragons, check out the second poster for GAME OF THRONES season two focusing on a dragon egg and Daenerys Targaryen's bid for the Iron Throne.

HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
One of the films I've mentioned last year, and you were rather excited
about it, is the movie adaptation of THE RED STAR comic which has just gotten its director: as "Deadline" claims, Josh Trank, who's just had a hit with sf film CHRONICLE will helm it. The film will be set in an alternate Russia which touts highly advanced futuristic technology along with magical elements. The story centers around a Russian soldier and his wife who get caught in the middle of a war between his country and a former Russian leader. The comic book has sold millions of copies around the world so far. One of Josh Trank's future projects also includes the reboot of THE FANTASTIC FOUR.

And to finish in sf tone, here's a rather dynamic and action packed trailer for BATTLESTAR GALACTICA prequel titled BATTLESTAR GALACTICA: BLOOD AND CHROME a pilot for a spin-off TV series which
should air sometime this year at SyFy. The story takes place in the 10th year of the first Cylon war. As the battle between humans and their creation, a sentient robotic race, rages across the 12 colonial worlds, a brash rookie viper pilot enters the fray. Ensign William Adama, barely in his 20's and a recent Academy graduate, finds himself assigned to the newest battlestar in the Colonial fleet... the Galactica. The talented but hot-headed risk-taker soon finds himself leading a dangerous top secret mission that, if successful, will turn the tide of the decade long war in favour of the desperate fleet. The lead role
is played by young Luke Pasqualino, who is currently playing the charming stableboy in THE BORGIAS. And as my ladies can see from the pic, he's a bit of a stud himself :)

  1. After CAPRICA I'm a little wary of anymore spin offs.

    However, yay for more fantasy films! I hope its popularity grows because it will make publishing fantasy easier ;)

    1. I hear you, sister, I tried watching BATTLESTAR and just couldn't get all the borefest :) But this does seem to be a different one, and I liked the trailer, it seems it will be more action and less religious and psychological rubbish.

  3. IMDB says 2013 for the release of Blood & Chrome...I am looking forward to it as I was a huge fan of BSG and still am. This has some good Canadian talent in it, too...Looks like it might be filmed in Vancouver judging by the cast selections. I recognize several of the actors from Cold Squad and Mike Dopud was in SGU. He's a really underrated (and totally hot!) Canadian actor.

    1. nobody knows currently when it will be aired. Maybe even never :( if the pilot gets cancelled. The pilot was shot in Canada last month :)

  4. Caprica was trash and while Battlestar had it's moments it was way way way too slow. I can only here the ship is going to break so many times before I want the stupid thing to blow to pieces already. I hold little hope for this prequel thingy as for one, we know how it ends and two syfy will cancel it anyway.

    1. it's true, Cat, Caprica was a synonym for boredom, as was Battlestar and Star Gate shows too. I hate it when they ruin my sf shows.

    2. For me Stargate was great until they did that stupid last universe one, I HATED that with a passion.

    3. I loved only the original movie :) It was the first and the only Western movie we were able to see in our cinemas back at the beginning of the 90's when USA and teh West put embargo on us causing hunger and poverty. Cinemas were closed and they even took Disney from our kids, but for some reason STARGATE was played in cinemas :)

    4. I also only like the original movie. Do you remember the chicken man?

      Delete
    5. Chicken man? Nope? Remind me :) I only remember the evil nemesis who gave me nightmares :) And those were times when James Spader still got the hots :)

      Delete
    6. The chicken man is what they called Daniel because he made his arms go like a chicken when he ate that food they gave him, as it tasted like chicken.

  10. anything battlestar is great in my book

    ReplyDelete
  11. I never could get into Battlestar Galactica and because it was SciFi I tried, but no go. I think the Red Star is going to be a big one when it comes out because there is a huge fan base waiting for this and with the technology available today, they can really make this work.

    I know there are other dragons on this page Dez, but none as nice as Dezzdragon.
