What's poppin' cool kids! One of the things that annoys me is when I tweet tidbits that I personally think aren't newsworthy, and writers go and make news stories out of my embedded tweets anyway. So I'm going to take a page from the Slashfilm playbook and but these tidbits into one story. Win/Win me thinks.
THE AMAZING SPIDER-MAN 2
For all you webheads, Spidey is coming to San Diego Comic Con! The Amazing Spider-Man 2 will be part of the Sony Pictures Hall H panel which takes place this year on Friday July 19th, 2013. I'm pretty sure director Marc Webb and star Andrew Garfield are going to be there and show you some cool footage of the sequel that is currently in production here in New York City. So all you Comic Con Hall H line diehards can start lining up now. If I'm bored out of my skull at the Wired Lounge, I'll maybe check this panel out.
GUARDIANS OF THE GALAXY
Marvel is out to the agencies looking for screenwriters to do a 2-3 week rewrite job on the script. Sounds to me like they're looking for a closer to do a polish before production starts since Whedon is probably busy writing Avengers 2. Now PLEASE don't send me your piss poor superhero movie writing samples and email me asking how you can get the rewrite job because I hate to break to you bro, it's not gonna happen.
Over the weekend, one of my twitter followers pointed me to a comment on a forum over on Film Score Monthly. Now I don't give comments on any forum the time of the day but this one proved interesting because it mentioned that composer Carter Burwell was off the film a full two days before Deadline broke it as their so called exclusive. Here is the kicker, the same post also mentioned that Alan Taylor is off the film as well. Check it out.
FYI, I checked with a REALLY WELL INFORMED SOURCE and it was confirmed
Carter is off the film.
It also appears so is the director who seems to have been asked to take a long vacation until AFTER the film opens.
Is Alan Taylor off the film? I couldn't get it confirmed and was hitting all sorts of brick walls so consider it unconfirmed. But in my experience, where there is smoke there is fire. The chances of the guy above being wrong are low since he was proven right by Deadline yesterday. I'm expecting Marvel to go full court press and bullshit us to the contrary.
But that's not all cool kids!
