Movie News: Adele, Musketeers, the Lone Ranger, and Jack Bauer

Les Aventures Extraordinaires d’Adèle Blanc-Sec: New Poster

I really love the ad campaign for this movie. The first stuff they released could've been any period piece, but they've gradually and slowly been unveiling the cooler parts. [Undead Backbrain]

The Three Musketeers: New Movie

The guy responsible for Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes movie is planning to work the same magic on The Three Musketeers. Wonder if he can beat the Resident Evil guy to it. The more the merrier, I say.

The Lone Ranger: Screenwriter

/Film has the long and rumored history of this project (George Clooney and Johnny Depp were once speculated to be a possible Ranger and Tonto, respectively) including the recent hiring of a new screenwriter: the guy who adapted Revolutionary Road. He was also supposed to write Disney's Captain Nemo prequel until that project was canceled.

24: The Movie

I gave up on 24 a long time ago. My disbelief-suspension is flexible as all get-out, but the needs of the real-time format required ridiculously padded storylines that I just couldn't buy into. I still love Jack though and I've thought since the second season that the show would be vastly improved by abandoning real-time and just having a traditionally-paced series about his fighting bad guys. Which is why I'm so interested in the possibility of a 24 movie.
