1408 (Movie Watch)

Adapted from the terrifying short story by suspense master, Stephen King. Renowned horror novelist Mike Enslin believes only in what he can see with his own two eyes. But after a string of bestsellers discrediting paranormal events in the most infamous haunted houses & graveyards around the world, he has no real proof of life…afterlife. But Enslin's phantom-free run of long and lonely nights is about to change forever when he checks into suite 1408 of the notorious Dolphin Hotel for his latest project, "Ten Nights in Haunted Hotel Rooms." Defying the warnings of the hotel manager (Jackson), the author is the first person in years to stay in the reputedly haunted room. Another bestseller may be imminent, but like all Stephen King heroes, first he must go from skeptic to true believer – and ultimately survive the night.

Iron Man (Movie Update)

Here's Iron Man!

So far the cast looks good as do these pics, but back to the cast. Gwyneth Paltrow is Virginia Pepper Potts, Terrence Howard is Jim Rhodes. Plus Stan Winston created the amazing suits we will be seeing. Sets are being built. Fergus and Ostby (Children of Men) did the work on the script. Matty Libatique is shooting it with the competatnt Jon Favreau directing so everything appears to be really coming together.

Seems like everything is going better than how it went with Ghost (Crappy) Rider, but at this point we can't relax even for a second until we can see the mood and look of this picture. I believe he can be this character if he takes the role serious and not as a joke. Sadly even though the filming has begun, Paramount Pictures won't be releasing this movie til 08.

Grade: A -

Synecdoche, New York (Movie Watch)

It appears Charlie Kaufman's next film will also be his directorial debut and is the "Horror genre" piece he had been reported as working on, as odd as that may sound. The film titled Synecdoche, has a cast it seems that includes Philip Seymour Hoffman, Catherine Keener, Michelle Williams, Samantha Morton & Jennifer Jason Leigh.

Indie production companies Sidney Kimmel Entertainment & Likely Story will produce the project based on Kaufman's original screenplay. Kaufman and Spike Jonze also will serve as producers. Producers are anticipating a spring shoot in New York.

In the film, Hoffman will play a theater director who ambitiously attempts to put on a play by creating a life-size replica of New York inside a warehouse. Keener is set to play his first wife, Williams will play his second wife, Morton will appear as his sometime lover, and Leigh will portray Keener's best friend and the dubious mentor to the daughter of Hoffman and Keener's characters.

Although sounding nothing near a true horror it does sound very Federico Fellini/Woody Allanesque. No matter as the cast with Kaufman's writing should equal artistic success if not the box office kind.
