Donkey Kong Lives
1/24/07, 9:16 pm EST - Xoanon
: Could The King of Kong be the long-awaited video game movie that breaks on through to the mainstream audience? That's what two movie studios are hoping will happen, and if they're right, there will be two different movies we'll get to see.
The King of Kong is a documentary about two video game rivals named Billy Mitchell and Steve Wiebe out to smash the world's record for Donkey Kong, the 1981 arcade game that launched the career of Mario and turned Nintendo into a billion-dollar gaming company. The movie is being screened at Slamdance, a spinoff of the Sundance Film Festival, and it's attracted the attention of Picturehouse and New Line Cinema. Picturehouse will release the documentary this summer in theaters while New Line thinks that there's more than enough drama between the battle of the joysicks to turn the original real-life story into the foundation for one of those "based on true events" movies. The original King of Kong director, Seth Gordon, will also serve as the director of the remake.

Newton Howard Hops on 'The Waterhorse'
1/14/07, 4:32 pm EST - Xoanon
Director Jay Russel
has posted a new blog on his MySpace website
. He has some very exciting news!
"Just a brief note to tell you how excited I am that I just signed James Newton Howard on to compose the score for "The Waterhorse." I loved his scores for "The Sixth Sense" and "Signs." I thought both pieces had a wonderful combination of tension and mysticism. Not the easiest musical feat to accomplish."
