HOLLYWOOD SPY HEADLINES
In other epic news today, "The Hollywood Reporter" writes about the Sony Pictures movie adaptation of famous video game SHADOW OF COLOSSUS. Josh Trank, who had CHRONICLE sleeper hit earlier last year, will direct this fantasy adventure centred on a young man named Wander, who was tasked with defeating sixteen massive colossi in order to save a girl named Mono, and restore peace and order to his kingdom. Speaking of fantasy projects, Disney has parted its ways with Mark Romanek who was supposed to helm their movie adaptation of CINDERELLA adding the blond beauty to other already filmed fairy tales from SNOW WHITE to ALICE IN WONDERLAND and HANSEL AND GRETEL. Romanek's vision of the classic tale was apparently too edgy and too grim and dark for Disney. As I reported some time earlier this winter Cate Blanchett is supposed to play the evil stepmother, while a bunch of young actresses including Alicia Vikander and Saoirse Ronan are auditioning for the titular role.
HENRY CAVILL IN GODZILLAAlso kinda epic, but in a monstrous way is GODZILLA which is getting a remake at Warner Bross. Gareth Edwards will direct the movie on the
THE GREAT WALL with Benjamin Walker and Zhang Ziyi - a historical mystery centred around the construction of the Great Wall of China.
