Singer and McQuarrie together again!
Ahoy, squirts! Quint here. I'm a fan of the collaborations between Chris McQuarrie and Bryan Singer. I really liked VALKYRIE a lot and, of course, love THE USUAL SUSPECTS. Also, McQuarrie did a little uncredited work on X-Men... he told me in an interview once that the only piece of his script for X-Men that made it to the final flick was one of my favorite scenes in all the X-Men films, the prologue seeing Magneto's powers develop in the concentration camp. Anyway, McQuarrie's great and it's only good news from THR's Heat Vision blog that he's doing a rewrite on JACK THE GIANT KILLER. It doesn't look like we'll see a SUPERMAN movie from the team, but an epic fantasy flick about a war between humans and giants sounds good to me. -Quint firstname.lastname@example.org Follow Me On Twitter

suspects is one of my all time favs. Let´s hope they stay clear of 3-D....
April 22, 2010, 3:30 a.m. CST
...but I found all of those "Wolverine and XMen Friends" movies garbage and that particular Magneto origin scene was the only decent part of any of them.
April 22, 2010, 3:42 a.m. CST
Don't be sorry .... Just be embarrassed! X2 is a stunning movie.

90 minutes where he can't throw a punch, but he'll bitch about your shoes?

any news on Singers BSG movie? id have thought things might have been fast tracked a little now he isnt doing XMEN FIRST CLASS...<p> reboot cast: Adama - Harrison Ford or Liam Neeson.... Apollo - Brandon Routh....Starbuck - Bradley Cooper....Baltar - McKellan or Spacey
April 22, 2010, 5:13 a.m. CST
Christopher Nolan is already remaking it
April 22, 2010, 5:22 a.m. CST
It's in development hell.
April 22, 2010, 5:48 a.m. CST
McQuarrie can carry Singer's ass through another movie.
April 22, 2010, 6:07 a.m. CST
And who gets to go wild as Torin Thatcher? That's what I want to know. :)
April 22, 2010, 6:13 a.m. CST
no wonder it went unnoticed.

Nothing again good ol' Quint here but lately it seems like the news concerning Singer and Co. gets made and then a day or so later we come to find out that it wasn't quite as initial reports said it was. Ever since Superman didn't go as expected I've heard all kinds of projects that Singer was suppose to be doing. Not much has transpired from all of the hubbub.

...but it sure smells good!
April 22, 2010, 7:47 a.m. CST
... that's pure, concentrated mediocrity!
April 22, 2010, 8 a.m. CST
from them. Nolan is donig it. C'mon, Quint, keep up with the times
April 22, 2010, 8:14 a.m. CST
Singer is entering Lucas/Spielberg territory now. Had a hit 15 years ago with The Usual Suspects and has been riding that gravy train ever since. Sure, the X-men movies were ok, but not top notch by any stretch of the imagination. Valkyrie- British accent, British accent, British accent, Tom Cruise. British accent, British accent, British accent, more Tom Cruise.
April 22, 2010, 8:31 a.m. CST
Hope they're both happy :)

. . . the intros to young Magneto and Wolverine were the only 2 scenes in X-Men that feel remotely immersed in the X-Verse. The rest could have been made for TV.
April 22, 2010, 8:37 a.m. CST
And Valkyrie kicked ass. So did Superman Returns for that matter.
April 22, 2010, 8:50 a.m. CST
Please tell me I incorrectly read into your statement that you were disappointed Singer wouldn't be destroying another Superman movie. If that's the case, your credibility just got flushed down the toilet!
April 22, 2010, 9:04 a.m. CST
<br><br>Seriously, why this movie doesn't get more love is beyond me. His writing is awesome, but I wish McQuarrie would get behind the camera again. <br><Br>
April 22, 2010, 9:15 a.m. CST
One of the best gun films ever made. So many understated nuances, clever details and packed with cool shootouts rooted in realism.
April 22, 2010, 9:48 a.m. CST
Because it's a fucking travesty if he did. McQuarrie's Magneto opening made me sit up and think we had a classic X-Men film on our hands. And then it turned to utter shit topped off by Whedon's "lightning- toad" turd of a line.
April 22, 2010, 9:52 a.m. CST
I was hoping Ralph was coming out of retirement.
April 22, 2010, 10:56 a.m. CST
I don't understand why anyone likes that film. What a hideous waste of time, literally.
April 22, 2010, 10:57 a.m. CST
"Watch this for two hours. Good. Now: none of that ever happened."
April 22, 2010, 11:12 a.m. CST
Singer got to do a Superman sequel. That Superman universe is a great one and had they had the chance to step up the action and drama in the sequel to Superman returns I think they would have given us something great. I liked Superman Returns when it came out and still do... as much as the series needs to go somewhere else, I just would have loved to see what Singer could have done! While we're at it, same with Xmen 3!

What will ever happen to that reported $40 million footage of Superman on his dead planet that was cut from the movie? Whole movies have been made for less. I want to see it.
April 22, 2010, 1:06 p.m. CST
I just watched it for the first time a few days ago, I did quite like it. I don't think it tried to say anything bigger about World War II or National Socialism but I'm fine with that. They plan, they screw up, they plan, they screw up, and then the ending happens and everybody gets shot. Doesn't delve deeper into it but it was an okay heist flick but instead of stealing something they're trying to kill Hitler.
April 22, 2010, 1:17 p.m. CST
Singer is not able to direct action, just drama when some one is there to fix his stupids ideas, Check superman Returns for details.
April 22, 2010, 2:16 p.m. CST
Ralph McQuarrie. Never thought they teamed up before lol.
April 22, 2010, 2:18 p.m. CST
What better way to get people to like you again then by playing a venerable character that opposed Hitler? Too bad it didn't work.

Singer, what's up with that?

Singer's out of the Galactica movie (directing anyway)and the whole project is in development hell. Universal can't afford to do it, even though it's got hit written all over it.
April 22, 2010, 5:46 p.m. CST
<br><br> His Galactica movie certainly does NOT have hit written all over it. If anything, it's quite likely to be a huge failure. The new series made the story interesting, respectable, classy, and exciting. But Singer wants to make a flick more like the old horrible cheesy version. All that would do is piss off people and undo all the goodwill the new series earned.<br><br>
April 22, 2010, 7:54 p.m. CST
I can't believe you dopes who insist it is so bad.. I challenge you to rewatch it and not come away with some appreciation. This thing has so much quality that puts most comic films to shame. It actually is the reverse of most comic films in that it improves with age. Singer did'nt make a disposable product, he made a Superman film and I applaud the effort.
April 23, 2010, 12:49 a.m. CST
Nobody cares about the 2 million people who watched the new series or even the fans of the old series. If a they ever make a Galactica film, which is unlikely to say the least, it'll have to appeal to a far wider audience than the dateless nerds who watch cable on a Friday night.
