A Week of News: Feb 11th

I may not be a fan of writing about film news due to the rumour-like quality that a lot of the articles are. However, I do follow the news on a lot of film blogs and I do think that there’s something to keeping track of all of the “news” that’s mentioned throughout the week as it relates to the world of cinema.

So every Friday I’ll be posting a list of links of the week’s news around the internet. Highlighting my favourite stories of the week and those stories so ludicrous I jut can’t imagine them to be true.

MY FAVOURITE STORIES OF THE WEEK

Shane Black may direct IRON MAN 3

Shane Black directed Kiss Kiss Bang Bang and that’s enough, but for those of you out there needing more credentials he also wrote Lethal Weapon, The Last Action Hero and The Long Kiss Goodnight and each of those movies play perfectly into what Iron Man as a franchise wants to accomplish. Black already has experience working with Robert Downey Jr. and gets his comedic sensibilities and that’s why this news makes me smile and would like to put in my official recommendation for the studio to go ahead and make this happen.

Danny Boyle and Simon Beaufoy may reteam for SHARP TEETH

They worked together on Slumdog Millionaire and 127 Hours which were both great movies (the later more than the former) and the idea of Boyle putting moving pictures to Beaufoy‘s words makes me tinkle a little bit. Also the idea of horror elements re-entering Boyle‘s filmography is also a great idea since
