Dan O’Bannon, who wrote a number of genre screenplays including Alien and Total Recall, passed away Thursday at the age of 63 after battling Crohn’s Disease for over 30 years.
This seems to be making the viral rounds, but has since been picked up by the British tabloids The Telegraph and The Sun. A strange, tetrahedral shape (often described as a pyramid, but from what I’ve seen it is more a tetrahedron) seemingly just hovering and rotating in the skies over Moskow. Goa’uld coming for the Stargate, or just God rolling a d4?
SCI Fi Wire has learned that Laurence Fishburne (The Matrix, CSI) has joined the cast of the new Predators movie, which takes the franchise off Earth and onto a “hunting planet” on which several humans awake to find themselves as the hunted. Already in the cast are Adrien Brody (King Kong), Topher Grace (Spider-Man 3), Walton Goggins (The Shield) and Danny Trejo (The Grind, and pretty much every other Robert Rodriguez production, who is producing Predators). Nimród Antal (Vacancy) is directing.
