Actress Susan Sarandon (Children of Dune), who plays the mother in the upcoming live action Speed Racer, gave some details of the Wachowski Brothers unique production, which was supposed to use some new filming technique. Now we know – filming will have all elements of a scene – foreground and background – in focus at all times, and have highly saturated color – similar to a cartoon. I’m very interested in seeing how this comes out.
Twentieth Century Fox has found a star for its remake of the classic The Day The Earth Stood Still in Keanu Reeves. Keanu will play Klaatu, a humanoid who arrives on Earth with a giant robot, warning humans that they will face destruction if they don’t change. Scott Derrickson (The Exorcism of Emily Rose) will direct.
