SIGNS OF LIFE IN THE HYPERION GALAXY

I’m not sure how many remember the 2001 Anthrax Attacks- when everyone was scared to open their mail because you didn’t know if it was a care package from Grandma or just a healthy dose of Bacillus Anthracis waiting to snuff you out; but this is kind of how I felt when producing partner Ryan Colucci sent me the latest cut of White Space.  

The one thing we (WS producers) all know- is that we have a high-margin product on our hand.  If we learned one thing from AFM it’s that there’s an insatiable industry appetite for Disaster Films, Thinking-person’s horror and Effects Driven Sci-Fi films like White Space.  So profit margin is there- pretty much built in from the get, thanks to some hard work from a talented crew and a win-win deal with our VFX masterminds, www.filmworksfx.com.   

However, from a creative standpoint, after viewing the first rough cut, I can’t say I was doing cartwheels.  The screenplay – written by Clay McLeod Chapman and Ryan Colucci- is top-notch, solid – and I wanted so very much for our final product to be as loyal to the page as possible.  This wasn’t exactly the case.  Again, from a product standpoint— great- check, please.  But creatively- I knew we had a much better film on our hands and thankfully, Colucci- was straight up, Judd Nelson, Relentless, in tracking down the man with a plan— Eric Potter–  an immensely talented editor with a VFX background.  His credits speak for themselves with work on movies like Underworld: Rise of the Lycans and The Lincoln Lawyer, starring Matthew McConaughey, to name a few. 

His name may as well be HARRY Potter because he turned out sheer magic in comparison to the initial cut I reviewed.  I made notes on the cut last night from around 11pm to 3am and the only thing missing was the popcorn.  

This is the movie we set out to make. It’s a Monster. Brooding and mysterious with thrills and jumps along the way through to an exciting conclusion with all the bells and whistles you’d expect from a sci-fi thriller about a deep space crew gone mad as they get in over their heads on the chase for a black market take, disturbing a legendary beast that will do anything to protect its territory.

copy below from Bloody Disgusting—- Monday, November 28, 2011

By: MrDisgusting
While production picks back up in Montreal, Bloody Disgusting has been digging for the full cast of David Twohy’s Riddick, the third film in the trilogy that will star Vin Diesel and Karl Urban.We have exclusively reported Oct. 31 that Andreas Apergis, Katee Sackhoff (White Noise 2: The Light, Growl, The Haunting in Georgia), Bokeem Woodbine (Total Recall, Devil) and WWE wrestler Dave Bautista (The Scorpion King 3: Battle for Redemption) have all been given offers. Add Matthew Nable (K-11, Killer Elite) to the list as “Boss Johns”. Apergis would play “Krone”, commander of the dark theocracy. Sackhoff would pay “Dahl”, a Nordic merc tracking Riddick.

We’ve also learned that there’s strong interest in both Cliff Curtis (Live Free or Die Hard , The Fountain, Training Day) and Holt McCallany (Alien 3, Fight Club) as “Santana” and “Vargas”, respectively.

Betrayed by his own kind and left for dead on a desolate planet, Riddick (Diesel) fights for survival against alien predators and becomes more powerful and dangerous than ever before. Soon bounty hunters from throughout the galaxy descend on Riddick only to find themselves pawns in his greater scheme for revenge. With his enemies right where he wants them, Riddick unleashes a vicious attack of vengeance before returning to his home planet of Furya to save it from destruction.
