Press Release

CULVER CITY, Calif., October 11, 2010 – Rhys Ifans will play the villain, opposite Andrew Garfield as Peter Parker and Emma Stone as Gwen Stacy, in the next installment of Spider-Man from Columbia Pictures and Marvel Studios, it was announced today by Amy Pascal, co-chairman of Sony Pictures Entertainment and Matt Tolmach, president of Columbia Pictures. The film, to be directed by Marc Webb from a screenplay by James Vanderbilt and produced by Avi Arad and Laura Ziskin, will begin production in December and will be released in theaters nationwide in 3D on July 3, 2012.

Commenting on the announcement, Tolmach said, “We have been very fortunate to attract some of the best actors working today to play the villains in the Spider-Man movies, and it is exciting to see that trend continue with Rhys Ifans. After seeing his performance in our upcoming film Anonymous, we’re in awe of his talent and think he’s the perfect choice to take on this role.”

The filmmakers prefer to not reveal which character Ifans will be playing in the forthcoming film.

Webb added, “What sets the Spider-Man villains apart is the complexity of their relationships with Peter Parker. Rhys’ incredible ability to embody both warmth and rage makes him the ideal choice for this character.”

Spider-Man is being overseen at the studio by Tolmach and Rachel O’Connor. Ifans is represented by United Talent Agency, Brillstein Entertainment Partners, and Independent Talent Group.

RHYS IFANS’ breakout performance came in 1999 in Roger Michell’s Notting Hill, opposite Julia Roberts and Hugh Grant, for which he received a BAFTA Film Award nomination for Best Performance by an Actor in a Supporting Role. Prior to that, Ifans starred in Heart, Twin Town, August, and Dancing at Lughnasa, and since then, he has appeared in more than 20 films, including Vanity Fair; Rancid Aluminium, Little Nicky; The Replacements; Hannibal Rising, Enduring Love; Human Nature; Formula 51; Hotel; The Shipping News; Once Upon A Time in the Midlands, Elizabeth: The Golden Age, Pirate Radio; Greenberg; and Nanny McPhee and the Big Bang. He will next appear in Mr. Nice, Harry Potter and the Deathly Hallows, Passion Play, and Columbia Pictures’ Anonymous, for director Roland Emmerich.

On television, he played the role of Peter Cook in Terry Johnson’s “Not Only But Always,” for which he won the BAFTA TV Award for Best Actor. He also appeared in “A Number.” In the theatre, Ifans has appeared in “Accidental Death of an Anarchist,” “Bad Finger,” “Volpone,” “Under Milk Wood,” “Beautiful Thing,” “Thyesters,” and, most recently, Patrick Marber’s adaptation of “Don Juan in Soho” at the Donmar Warehouse.

Green Lantern Movie: Bzzd

pic

Check out the Green Lantern Corps member Bzzd!

Courtesy of our friends over at Comic Book Movies, here is a look at the little bugger from the upcoming Green Lantern movie scheduled to light our darkest day on June 17th 2011!

Apparently a favorite of director Martin Cambell, Bzzd appeared in the comics taking down Guy Gardner and Mongul! The little guy also saved Kilowog from infected Yellow Lantern spores. Sadly, he met his fate while battling Mongul during the “Rinquest Affair” where he attacked Mongul from the inside. Last seen (I believe) as one of the Black Lanterns, who will Bzzd bug in the Green Lantern Movie?!

Mark Strong on Sinestro’s Look in Green Lantern Movie

GREEN LANTERN MOVIE POSTERS

We have an idea or two of what Ryan Reynolds’ as Green Lantern will look like and a couple weeks ago at the 2010 Comic-Con we got a tease regarding Sinestro’s.

Mark Strong, the actor playing the sinister leader of the Yellow Lanterns (comics), had more to say on the look of Sinestro in the Green Lantern movie, courtesy MTV News. Strong said make-up and prosthetics will be used from the head up and for the suit — CGI. He mentioned people will be delighted as Sinestro will look the way he does in the comics.

SDCC ’10: Green Lantern Movie and Press Conference Panel





GREEN LANTERN MOVIE LOGO

GREEN LANTERN MOVIE LOGO

At the 2010 Comic-Con International, Warner Bros. held two live panels: The Green Lantern Movie panel which was for general audiences and a special press only Green Lantern press panel. The following recap is condensed from Newsarama (Press Only) and Screen Rant’s (Public) live feeds. Green Lantern hits on June 17th 2011. Check out a list of related articles here at Cosmic Book News after the recap and be sure to check out our Green Lantern Core movie hub featuring all the latest news!

Green Lantern Panel (public)

In brightest day, in blackest night,
No evil shall escape my sight
Let those who worship evil’s might,
Beware my power… Green Lantern’s light!

The Green Lantern oath is recited with the Green Lantern comic book writer and Green Lantern movie creative consultant, Geoff Johns, coming to the stage!

Panelists include: Ryan Reynolds (Hal Jordan/Green Lantern), Blake Lively (Carol Ferris), Peter Sarsgaard (Hector Hammond), Mark Strong (Sinestro), Martin Campbell, Donald DeLine and Greg Berlanti.

Some movie footage is shown of special effects including some off-world scenes, the ring and aliens. Reynolds mentioned he wasn’t too familiar with Green Lantern so he looked to Han Solo for a bit of inspiration. He stated he met with Director Martin Cambell to discuss the character.

Cambell mentions the costume featured in Entertainment Weekly is not complete; that it is a “work in progress.” He says its more of a “skin” and less of a “costume.” (Editor’s Note: Makes sense as the ring creates the “costume” in the comic I believe.)

Producer Donald Deline talks about the planet Oa, home of The Guardians, and that we will see 3600 Green Lanterns in action!

There are only three weeks of shooting left and Reynolds mentions its been really hot in New Orleans (GL movie location).

On to audience question and answer with a fan asking how Reynolds got involved. It was said he saw the concept art Director Martin Cambell provided and “begged for the part.”

Again to Reynolds with a young audience member asking how it felt to say the GL oath. Reynold’s recites the oath revealing the Green Lantern ring he is wearing! He gives it to an audience member who had a sheet of paper under their chair.

Green Lantern Panel (press)

Director Martin Cambell begins by telling the press audience about the story; that it is pretty straight-forward and how the ring works (willpower).

Reynolds tells them he read the Secret Origins GL comics as the movie is about the origin and Geoff Johns told him its compared to Star Wars. Again he mentions the weather in New Orleans and says the motion capture suit (GL’s costume is all CGI) makes it hot. The talk about the GL mask – apparently not CGI and that it fits him well, which was created by an “effects house.”

Regarding voice casting for characters such as Kilowog, its too early in production to discuss that.

Now to Mark Strong as Sinestro! Strong comments on the character, “…an incredibly organized and fearless component of the Green Lantern Corps. He basically guides Hal Jordan through the training process.” He says Sinestro and Hal have a few confrontations in the movie and that he tests Hal because he is human; Sinestro does not feel humans can handle the Corps. He mentions a scene with Kilowog where they put Jordan through a rigorous test which leads to one.

Blake Lively, playing Carol Ferris, talks about her stunts and use of the “Matrix rig” – a gyroscopic harness 20 feet high that made her nauseous.

Pete Sarsgaar, Hector Hammond in the movie, mentions his character with, “There’s a fine line between science and wishful thinking. I’ve thought about the guys who have stretched our thinking …guys like Carl Saagan..” He mentions he read more science-fiction than comics and continues, “I really thought of [Hammond] as a dreamer, in that sense.”

And that’s a wrap!
