“One nation, under surveillance, with liberty and justice for all.” Damn, that’s a good tagline.
Neil Gaiman’s Sandman is one of the great fantasy epics of all time and it’s almost impossible to imagine a film adaptation capturing what makes it so special. A 75-issue comic book series has the time and space to explore obscure nooks and crannies of its world and break into tangents that comment on the greater whole. It’s not a typical story of heroes and villains and there is almost no traditional action. That’s why Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who is producing, directing and possibly starring in the film version, has his work cut out for him. At least he’s currently saying the right things.
It’s one those true stories that no one would believe if it didn’t actually happen. In 1974, artist high-wire Philippe Petit walked across a cable strung between the two World Trade Center towers. He didn’t have permission, it was very illegal, and it took an entire team of experts to pull it off. The story was the subject of the Oscar-winning documentary Man on Wire and now it has been dramatized in The Walk, which has just revealed a new trailer.
Oliver Stone’s latest project is Snowden, which tells the true story of Edward Snowden, the NSA contractor who ultimately blew the whistle on the government branch, leaking incriminating classified documents to the press which revealed the NSA’s eyebrow-raising surveillance operations. He was previously the subject of the Oscar-winning documentary Citizenfour, and now he’s the subject of Stone’s newest narrative film, which has revealed a new image featuring Joseph Gordon-Levitt in the role of Snowden.
Are you ready to dance your cares away? No? Well too damn bad, they’re making a new Fraggle Rock movie and you will dance your cares away, dammit. WORRIES ARE FOR ANOTHER DAY, YOU HEAR ME?
There’s no better way to turn any family get-together into a screaming match than to bring up Edward Snowden, the CIA whistleblower who revealed the extent of NSA surveillance on American citizens and became an international fugitive. You know, one man’s patriot is another man’s traitor and so on and so forth. Well, director Oliver Stone is looking to ruin a whole bunch of Christmas dinners this year with Snowden, which stars Joseph Gordon-Levitt as the most polarizing figure in modern American history. Consider the release of two images of Gordon-Levitt as Snowden your cue to start prepping for your next family argument.
Just hours after Citizenfour, the documentary about NSA whistleblower Edward Snowden, took home the 2015 Academy Award for Best Documentary, Deadline published a report that another big name talent has joined the fictional version of Snowden’s story...
Warner Bros. has been trying to adapt Neil Gaiman’s classic ‘Sandman’ graphic novels into a film for years with little success, but now that Joseph Gordon-Levitt is set to direct and David S. Goyer is involved, the project is picking up steam. Gaiman himself has been working closely with Gordon-Levitt, Goyer, and writer Jack Thorne on finally bringing ‘Sandman’ to the big screen, and he thinks Tom Hiddleston would be the perfect leading man.
If you’ve seen James Marsh’s Academy Award-winning documentary ‘Man on Wire,’ you’re familiar with the story of Philippe Petit, the high-wire walker who performed the insanely dangerous feat of traveling, via tightrope, between the two towers of the World Trade Center in 1974. If you haven’t seen ‘Man on Wire,’ you’ll have a new opportunity to learn Petit’s story when ‘The Walk,’ Robert Zemeckis’ fictionalized version of Petit’s book ‘To Reach the Clouds,’ opens next fall.
While most of us have been very occupied with the more major superhero movie news out of Marvel and DC, we haven’t forgotten about another DC project in development over at Warner Bros.: Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s adaptation of Neil Gaiman’s ‘Sandman,’ which has been in development for quite a while now. First announced late last year, it’s been a while since we’ve heard any news about the project, but Gordon-Levitt and writer David Goyer finally have an update for us.
