Film adaptation of the popular video game Mass Effect, getting ready in the bowels of Legendary Pictures, did not give an effect from May 2010, when it was announced that the film adaptation of the script will take Mark Protasiewicz ("Thor," "I - a legend"). This week, the project finally came to life and got a new author.
The text of the upcoming film, the studio has invited to work Foale Morgan Davis, once a former associate editor for the TV series "Rescue Me" and the comedy "Click: With remote control for life" and "Chuck and Larry" with Adam Sandler. Among others, and while a few achievements to date writer listed only text Whatever Gets You Through the Night, caught in 2009 in the infamous "black list". In addition, to his credit several projects commissioned by major studios and producers. Science-fiction Mass Effect threatens to turn for Foale into his loudest projects.
After studying the script and make suggestions to the author, Legendary pushed Foale on the ability to dispense with a similar action-style and sophisticated plot twists, as well as knowledge of the material - the filmmaker is a fan of the original game franchise.
The first part of Mass Effect was on the shelves in 2007, quickly became a bestseller. In the first four months after its release has sold over 1.6 million copies. Continuation of the game was published three years later, and for the debut week the distributed two million of its copies. Mass Effect 3 release took place in spring 2012.
Executive producing of the film, based on the video game, will make Casey Hudson, the head of the development team of the second and third parts of the franchise. Picture production will be supervised by Thomas Tull and Jon J. Dzhashni with Avi and Ari Arad. Last two producers are already being developed for the film adaptation of a number of other popular games, including Uncharted and Metal Gear Solid.
Starring Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Dania Ramirez in an interview with the resource Collider talked about their work in the thriller "Premium Rush". Read excerpts from the interview below.
- How did you both get into the project?
Dania Ramirez: When my agent gave me the script, I read it for fun, but then decided to read again and think about my character and how I can show her on the screen. By the time the project was already occupied by Joe, and I know that the director is David Koepp, whose script I admired. So I went to audition, and then I was invited again in order to try with Joe some scene together and see if we approach each other as partners. We will do it right.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt: The first time when I was given the script to read "Premium Rush", I was filming the drama "50/50" the movie about a guy who is struggling with the disease, and whose body is beginning to give up. My hero is a very strong person and is sure in his body. So the offer to ride a bike in New York during the summer looked very cool.
- Were you sure at 100% that you can play bike messengers? Were you arrogant?
Dania Ramirez: I do not know whether you can call yourself a self-assured, if you are confident. You just put yourself in a situation in which you will have to have a certain level of faith in your own strength and to know that you know how to do something well.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt: It does not matter you're a messenger or just going on a bike, you can not doubt. You must be confident and reasonably able to make decisions and implement them. This is one of the main features of my character - Wiley. He takes the split-second decisions without hesitation. But I would call it a quality self-confidence, not arrogance.
- Have you more fun or work contrary to expectations?
Joseph Gordon-Levitt: It was crazy fun!
Dania Ramirez: Oh, I think it was a bomb!
Joseph Gordon-Levitt: I expected it to be fun, that's what happened. And I also know that I will have to work hard, and we did it.
Dania Ramirez: I expect that it will be very difficult, as it was assumed that the film we have to drive a bike, so I knew that exercise will be healthy. But as aspects of gladness, of course, it was present at the shooting, and now, when I look at the screen.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt: I would like to prepare, how to be in shape and learn how to ride your best. For me it was important.
- Joe, if you compare your work in such action, as the "Cobra", "Inception", "Time loop", how hard was to shot in "Premium Rush"?
Joseph Gordon-Levitt: Well, in terms of physical effort, the first "Premium Rush", and in the back of it breathing "Inception." I spent a bike all day, every single day. The entire film is on the bike. In "Inception" there were a lot of cool action scenes, but here is one action-packed scene in the whole movie.
Dania Ramirez: We need to take into account that most of the film we travel by bicycle, while talking to each other. Therefore, in the first six weeks of training before we went to train in New York, we set a stamina, because it was impossible to stray from the breath during dialogues. You have to shoot the scene and go with very fast in the heart of New York City. Education is different from training to other action games.
- What particularly surprised you in the bike culture and bike messengers themselves?
Joseph Gordon-Levitt: For myself, I noted a sense of belonging to this community. There is a real culture and ethics of the bike messengers, as well as among the people who love to ride bikes.
Dania Ramirez: They genuinely respect each other. Before, when I saw the messengers on bicycles, I thought of them as an individual person. Now I understand that they are connected to each other by bonds.
Joseph Gordon-Levitt: They preach a moral: more bikes and fewer cars. If the majority of people will use bicycles instead of cars, the air will be cleaner, and people will be in the best physical shape. Great - really the best form of transport, when it comes to how to get from point A to point B. A car should be used to carry heavy things.
- Did you like working with Michael Shannon? How much of what he did, was written in the script?
Joseph Gordon-Levitt: It is, of course, graced the stage with his presence, but mostly it was not improvised. It was a well-written script, which at one time attracted all of us to participate in the project. Shannon was fun! I think Shannon perfectly fit in this range.
- Joe, you wrote the script and shot your first feature film, is not it?
Joseph Gordon-Levitt: Yeah, I'm a screenwriter, and director of the project under the name "Don Jon's Addiction". I learned so much by working with great directors, that I decided to take a chance. Closer to the premiere I will talk to you guys about my movie. My breath catches at the thought that I had removed Scarlett Johansson and Julianne Moore. We had a lot of fun!
- How often do people ask you to explain the ending of "Inception"?
Joseph Gordon-Levitt: Not very often. But my favorite movies are those that trigger the desire to start a conversation.

13-year-old dream of Quentin Tarantino called "Django unchained" came true. The director introduced the film to the public in San Diego, taking with him Jamie Fox, Christoph Waltz, Kerry Washington, and Don Johnson.
"I always wanted to make a western, but the spaghetti western, - says Tarantino. - At first the idea was: a slave becomes a bounty hunter and chases the white. "
The historical accuracy of the director: "This was not necessary, because America before the Civil War itself was a very surreal. Unable to show it strangest and the worse than the reality. "
The fact that Tarantino film would be controversial, the leading man Jamie Foxx suspected from the beginning. However, knowledge did not deter him from working with all the wonderful people who surrounded himself with the director.
"When we started rehearsals, Quentin told me that he worries about my ability to understand the mentality of a slave, - says Fox. - He also thought that I could not reject my star status, and demanded that I totally scored on his ego and "started all over again." But it was easy: I grew up in Texas, and as a child I was often called a nigger. So it was easy to understand the character. "
Christoph Waltz has hinted that his character did not just save Django: "He needs it! But why - do not tell yourself you'll see! "
Dr. Schultz (now a dentist) - a great shooter, but he is not ready for the harsh realities of the South. Walz said that for him, as for Fox, Quentin partly recalled his own experience, since he grew up in Vienna. The director said that Schultz has a very interesting background, which was not included in the film.
Then the director introduced the eight-cutting of the film, which has a lot of new characters, but they are all from the first part of "Django".
Tarantino compared planters with large corporations. Walton Goggins plays Billy Crash, who trains the slaves for fighting. Samuel L. Jackson plays Steven, domestic servant, who controls the estate of ruthless Candy (Leonardo DiCaprio). "They are the two executive directors" - drew an analogy director. Maybe Stephen and slave, but he is a very unpleasant man. He can be called the father of Candy, because he brought up his master and is the only person who listens to the hero DiCaprio.
The film is still underway, there is still a week of filming. Tarantino said John Hill, recently won a role in the project, has already filmed all his scenes, but no, he did not take the place of the hero retired Sacha Baron Cohen. Hero of Hill appears in the company of Dad, and their scenes together Tarantino calls the most ridiculous of all, he managed to compose for his life. Director did not disclose details, but hinted that it is linked to the Ku Klux Klan.
Interestingly, one of the characters in "Django" is the ancestor of another hero of the film Tarantino. Quentin did not say who it was, but joked that Jango and Brumgilda are the progenitors of the detective Shaft.
Of course, some of the fans asked Tarantino, what will be his next project. And, of course, the director has no idea what will undertake after the "Django unchained".
A new picture of Quentin Tarantino will be shown in January 17, 2013th.
July 12 at the San Diego has been opened convention called Comic-Con - an analog of the Cannes Film Festival for all the geeks of the world. Therefore, in the next few days will be a lot of news about new projects. In particular, the director of "Dark City" Alex Proyas decided to stage a film on the illustrated novel, steampunk, "Joe Golem And The Drowning City” by Christopher Golden and creator of "Hellboy" Mike Minoly.
The film rights to books has purchased Studio Constantin Film. It is expected that Proyas, will not only remove a film on it, but also wrote the script. Especially, we note that the book - it's not a comic or graphic novel, namely the book, just with a lot of pictures of Minoly.
"Joe Golem And The Drowning City" was released in late March 2012. The action of the book begins in 1925 when an earthquake and flood lower Manhattan plunged 10 meters into the water. Residents began to call this part of New York city drowned. Many people do not want to leave their homes and formed a new life on the flooded streets turned into canals between the houses, submerged in water for three or four floors.
It took 50 years. Drowning city is a pitiful sight. Around the scavengers, water rats, the poor eke out their existence, barely make ends meet, and even the most proud and stubborn surrendered under the pressure of circumstances. Among them, 14-year-old Molly McHugh and her friend and employer, Felix Eagles. Once the Eagles was a famous exorcist magician, but now he is just an old medium, communicating with the spirits of the dead. When the regular session with the world beyond the grave is not according to plan, Felix kidnapped strange people in masks, and Molly is forced into hiding. The search will drive another girl with a mysterious stranger and his assistant, burly Joe Golem, whose original purpose - hunting for witches.
Alex Proyas for the last year was unsuccessful. The director spent a lot of time to prepare for adaptation of the poem by John Milton's "Paradise Lost". However, due to financial constraints, the picture was frozen: the number of special effects not correlated with a dedicated budget. Then Proyas signed on adaptation of the novel by Robert A. Heinlein's "Unpleasant Profession of Jonathan Hoag," but whether the project will be a priority for Alex, has not yet reported.
Filming will take place at home of director in Australia, the launch date is not yet known.
The star of the third "Transformers" Rosie Huntington-Whiteley will continue to move away from the podium to the side of a large cinema. British supermodel will star in the film by George Miller's "Mad Max 4", where are involved Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron.
A couple of weeks ago, the tabloids found out about the meeting of Whiteley with the director of "Mad Max 4" in Sydney. Apparently, the conversation with the actress has satisfied the Miller, as last week, Rosie was adopted by one of the roles in the project.
In addition to Huntington-Whiteley, the film invites yet another supermodel, Abbey Lee Kershaw. Presumably the girls will play two of the "five wives," who pursue the villains, while the protection of women raises the hero of Tom Hardy.
Work on the new "Mad Max" was repeatedly postponed. For the first time the desire to revive Miller's legendary hero of the 1980s became known in May 2009. Then Mel Gibson has not yet become a Hollywood outcast, and again play Mad Max was not going to. In the autumn of 2009 to the project were attributed Hardy and Theron, but at the same time work on the film had to stop because of the price jumped in the Australian dollar and that had an impact on the budget belt.
In 2009, the same survey were planning to resume no earlier than February 2012. Producers almost kept their promise: work on tape is already underway. Already in July, the film crew went to Namibia, which will serve as the place of the "Mad Max 4."
At the 65th Cannes Film Festival Tom Hardy presented his new film, "Lawless," shocking journalists lush vegetation on the face. It was rumored that Hardy grows a beard just for the "Mad Max". His colleague, Charlize Theron has recently received absolutely the opposite, shaving her luxurious blond hair.
"Mad Max 4" should be the first film of the new trilogy, but only time will tell what happens in reality.
Date of release has not been announced.
Christian Bale in an interview resource OMG said about participation in the final part of the project from Christopher Nolan's "The Dark Knight 2: The Legend Continues."
- How is it to be involved in the anticipated movie of the year? What is the burden of responsibility?
"Well, as actors, we have done our part. Pressure and the burden of responsibility lies on the Christopher Nolan. But I must say that for every movie I play, as if no one is going to watch it (laughs). That's better, because you cease to strive to make a definite impression: "What do think about this people?" So, I usually say to myself: "Do not think anyone watching this film, so do everything as you see fit, and is expected to be correctly according to other people. "
- What is the place you remember the shooting and liked it more than others?
"I must tell you about one of the places, which certainly would have mentioned all the participants of shooting, and that was a real hell on earth - it is India. When we started shooting, we had a couple of days in Jodhpur, and all the local thought we were sick assholes (laughs). We went on a 50-degree heat, and then returned to the room with air conditioning, and said, "Oh," because it seems like you're poking your head in the freezer. In this room, the temperature was 30 degrees, that is, you can imagine what was it. Just a baptism of fire. With regard to our well-being, by the end of the day we started to rave because of the heat. But now there is something to remember!"
- What do you think will be the legacy of the trilogy? And that would leave the viewer to you personally?
"I believe that time will put everything in its place. For me, it looks like a systematization of the available data: the first time you watch a movie, you watch it after a while, and then, after a few years, you get an answer. As for me, as participant, I believe that among the trees of the forest did not see. "
- Is Chris the same director, with whom you would like to work in the future?
- You mentioned that you will not miss Batman costume.
"It's a double edged sword. There are certain moments when you put on a costume, and you begins a migraine. This year, I fell awkwardly on my back, or did something wrong and hurt my back a month. It was hard. I used to that the back is usually sore for three days, but now I'm 38 and in the morning, I limped like an invalid. That is, this year things changed for me, I began to get tired faster. But as soon as you start to complain, here comes the idea there is nothing to whine because you play the legendary hero. "
- Will Batman have new devices?
"Of course. He was always ready to present something new. And always it is something out of the ordinary, is not it? Batman does not let you go without demonstrating a new gadget."
- In Batman's violent fans, and the Joker is much better known as a villain than Bane, which is a pretty obscure character. The question is which way you go, because most people do not know anything about Batman, except for the nerds, who know too much.
"Here we have a bald actor. Tom Hardy comes through, that others would not go. Being bald and respect for Chris in his decisions ... we are here, damn it, an actor who has created a phenomenal villain."
- What did you feel after reading the script for the first time? What were your impressions? What was it like to dive into this world again?
"I am accustomed to this process, because I went to Chris home and read the script there. And I read terribly slow. And when I'm given the opportunity to read, I usually read, reread and reread - I think Chris could not believe it. Chris all the time came for me, thinking I was asleep (laughs). We are interrupted for lunch, it was getting dark, the family gathered for dinner. And I was sitting, meeting and seeing off guests (laughs). "
