Semi O.T. pre-emptive post. Can't Post

In a few days there will be a BIG announcement (big for me, at least) that is not-Hobbit related. BEFORE anyone starts wondering the usual "how does he have time?, Is this detracting form The Hobbit?" etc It is a project that started over 2 years ago, before The Hobbit and will render fruits in the mid-term, not intruding on my Hobbit duties. Rest assured.

The key letter is "D"

Well, [In reply to] Can't Post

I think it is Deadman, Del Toro producing and there was talk that Arcel (from Denmark) is directing it. But that is maybe dated.. Arcel also wrote the script for Mænd der hader kvinder, a great film.
With Del Toro 'only' producing it, there will probably be no interference with The Hobbit. About midterm - Is there such thing when making The Hobbit?

Really looking forward to Deadman, with or without Del Toro onboard.. (But I prefer Del Toro on board, he did great things to Hellboy) It was the only comicbook that I liked as a kid. It had that great feel and atmospere. And the look of him.. a superhero that isn't a superhero. And with the excistence of the great being (was it Hara Kushna? Rama Kushna) of the universe it has some lovecraftian background, although it is a comic book. Well I'm rambling..

Conclusion - I'm looking forward to it.

I don't know why the text of my post didn't display the first time around, but below is the link to an article on slashfilm.com. It discusses a remake of the movie "Heavy Metal" that could star the Jack Black/Kyle Gass band "Tenacious D" (commonly referred to as "The D"). The article lists Guillermo del Toro as possibly having some association with the film.

Drood--now there's a thought! [In reply to] Can't Post

It's too early to be thinking Drood just yet--he said it'll be bearing fruits "mid-term", and haivng read Drood, it is going to take a LOT of planning and work. Casting Dickens is going to be a job in itself, as well as the title character, and he has said it won't interfere with TH. We've been discussing Drood at length over at DTF< and it is certainly one of the projects he seems to have his heart dead set on after TH (Frankenstein and At The Mountains Of Madness are others.)

*Crosses fingers* Oh please I hope ATMOM comes to fruition one day--I know it's a tough studio sell! But if TH is as successful as LOTR (and why shouldn't it be?) I think Guillermo may well have his pick of projects--as PJ now has his.

"Deadman" is my opinion. Should be interesting!

Sunflower you make a good point.. [In reply to] Can't Post

I just got through Drood and I thoroughly concur with what you just said. Length aside, it is a very complex work and I'd say the difficulty lies not in the casting but in the "ironing out" of the narrative so that it translates and makes sense on screen. What DRT btw? As a fan of the book I might pop in there

So Frodo Baggins boarded the great ship and passed on into the west till the sweet fragrance on the air filled his sense and the sound of singing came over the water. Then it seemed to him that, as in a dream, he beheld white shores and beyond them a far green country. The third age of Middle Earth was over, the days of the Rings had passed and the story and song of those times was at an end.

Ok, here goes.

Read this on Google books:

http://books.google.com/books?id=Nd65uZ9iO3YC&lpg=PA4&ots=NfhF-vHgpY&dq=%22The%20key%20letter%20is%20D%22&pg=PA4#v=onepage&q=%22The%20key%20letter%20is%20D%22&f=false

He states clearly that he is using a substition code and he is telling us that the "key letter" for the code is 'D" - apparently.

But mentioning the "BIG" word he alerts us to the other BIG word which is "BEFORE". So the key letter BEFORE the true key letter is "D". The true key letter is then "E".

So, if you pick his text, uppercase it, and replace the letters in such a way that the 'A' becomes 'E', 'B' becomes 'F' etc. this is what you get:

In a few days there will be a BIG announcement (big for me, at least) that is not-Hobbit related. BEFORE anyone starts wondering the usual 'how does he have time?, Is this detracting form The Hobbit?' etc It is a project that started over 2 years ago, before The Hobbit and will render fruits in the mid-term, not intruding on my Hobbit duties. Rest assured. The key letter is 'D' Best GDT

becomes

As you see, the new text begins with "MR E". My bet is his movie is about this character: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mister_E.

In any event here is wishing you the best of fortune concerning the 'D' bomb you are about to drop. All the more power to you GdT:). Thanks for the head-up. It is quite thoughtful of you for doing so.

''What connects Nature to the spiritual, or requires the presence of the latter? In positive terms, as Alkis Kontos points out, when nature was still largely experienced as integral, alive and active, 'It was the spiritual dimension of the world, its enchanted, magical quality that rendered it infinite, not amenable to complete calculability; spirit could not be quanified; it permitted and invited mythologization.' And I would add, it still is and does.''

It's a great little community--like TORN in minature. And I mean minature--only about 40 posters. But they're a close-knit bunch and most of them have met Del Toro, Ron Perlman, Doug Jones and others of his crew, at "Hellboy" and other related events over the years. Worth checking out.

Great deciphering :D... [In reply to] Can't Post

Mr. E... Hehehe..
Maybe a movie about the biggest ROCKSTAR of the WORLD! (sorry for my capslock.. just excited, that's all.. not shouting, well actually I am) That would be sweet... A movie about the man that is Eels. But Del-Toro-style, so jumping, kicking and crucifying vampires..

Well maybe GDT should base it on E's more than great book: 'Things the Grandchildren Should Know'.

Still thinking it's Deadman actually. Drood is too big, to do midterm. And he wants to direct that, isn't he? So, that isn't the one. AtMoM is still not sure, and nothing D-like. As is Mary Shelley-Godwin's 'Frankenstein'. I was thinking about 'Le avventure di Pinocchio', because that is known by the mass as a Disney-movie... But the story GDT wants to make will probably be a lot darker than the Disney-version and more true to the Collodi-original. Maybe even without the 'happy-ending' put in by the editor. I would love to see a movie about Pinocchio after the puppets in HBII..

More Mister E...? [In reply to] Can't Post

An interesting add-on...

http://en.wikipedia.org/..._High_Cost_of_Living


Death: The High Cost of Living is an American comic book miniseries

[..]

A movie based on this series is currently in the works with New Line Cinema

[..]

Plot
[..]not overtly stated, but implied to be an alternate future version of Mister E, after his return from the end of time at Death's hands in The Books of Magic volume 1 [..]

Film adaptation
Death and Me is a film in development based upon Death: The High Cost of Living. The concept is that, once every century, the embodiment of Death is incarnated as a mortal woman for a single day to experience what she takes from others. Gaiman wrote the screenplay himself, and will also be directing. Gaiman made his directorial debut in 2003 with "A Short Film About John Bolton." Guillermo del Toro will serve as executive producer.

Does this mean we may get other BIG announcements on these boards? . . .

"D" must be for The Life and Times of Dora Baggins! Love that!! Tee hee.

Obviously you have to stack up work in advance. Must be normal in the movie industry I guess :) Best wishes!

Don't Be Afraid of the Dark? [In reply to] Can't Post

Perhaps the retelling that Guillermo del Toro has both produced and penned, or should we say "co-carded" the script with Matthew Robbins?
Should be close, if not already wrapped and into post now with a 2010 release. Demons and GDT...should be interesting. Can't wait!
If he has some secret energy drink, perhaps he'll share with us all. The man is going non-stop. Good luck!

Hmmm. "D," huh? [In reply to] Can't Post

I would hate to even hazzard a guess. As it sounds as though it's something you're happy about, I'll send along congratulations under that assumption! Smile

*cheers*

Aragorn threw back his cloak. The elven-sheath glittered as he grasped it, and the bright blade of Andúril shone like a sudden flame as he swept it out. “Elendil!” he cried. “I am Aragorn son of Arathorn, and am called Elessar, the Elfstone, Dúnadan, the heir of Isildur Elendil’s son of Gondor. Here is the Sword that was Broken and is forged again! Will you aid me or thwart me? Choose swiftly!” TTT, Book III, Chapter 2

Deadman has to be it [In reply to] Can't Post

From io9.com (Sept 1):

Warner Bros. has announced that it plans to move forward on a film surrounding Deadman, DC's ghostly superhero on a vengeful mission. Warner had originally planned for Guillermo Del Toro to direct a Deadman feature, but Variety has confirmed that Del Toro will produce the film and hand over the reins to Danish filmmaker Nikolaj Arcel, just days after Bloody Disgusting reported Arcel's interest in directing a "Crow-esque" Deadman adaptation.

DROOD....literary giant and scary [In reply to] Can't Post

HeartI read somewhere in the trade the GDT was going to make Dan Simmons' DROOD into a movie. This book is ENORMOUS and a fantastic yarn about Charles Dickens and Wilkie Collins....fiction and fact woven together beautifully. I hope that DROOD is the mysterious..."D".

peace-out,
Kelly

Rats! I just read it online. But there's more D's. [In reply to] Can't Post

The Production Company del Toro is forming with Disney is to be called "Disney Double Dare You." So there are actually 3 D's!

Here's a link to another article in The LA Times: Guillermo del Toro will take Disney on a scary ride

I wonder how this will relate to the recent Disney merger with Marvel Comics?

Wow didn't [In reply to] Can't Post

see that coming. Although there was a moment of whimsy, after hearing that Disney bought Marvel ($4B?) last week, that I thought this would bring a whole new breed of directors under the mouse eared cap (Kevin Smith?)

Congratulations G!
