Batman vs. Superman Movie Gets Cinematographer From 300, Watchmen, Super 8 & Lost

Zack Snyder will be using his 300, Watchmen and Sucker Punch cinematographer Larry Fong for the untitled Batman vs. Superman movie.

A resume at the World Wide Production Agency for Larry Fong has been updated and lists Fong as the director of photography (DP).

A DP is in charge of everything on set that deals with the camera work, basically having as much responsibility and answering only to the director.

The resume notes “Batman Vs. Superman” as the title of the movie, which we are guessing is only used as a general title.

Other credits for Fong include being the DP for J.J. Abrams’ Super 8 as well as Lost.

The sequel to “Man of Steel” goes into production next year for a July 17, 2015 release starring Ben Affleck as Batman, Henry Cavill as Superman, Amy Adams, Laurence Fishburne and Diane Lane.

The Walking Dead star Chandler Riggs, who plays Carl Grimes, has signed on to have a starring role in Stephen King’s new horror thriller, Mercy.

Joining Riggs is Super 8 star Joel Courtney, as the two play brothers that move with their mother to take care of the grandmother who, unknown to them, is really a witch that made an evil deal using black magic years earlier with the Ancient Ones.

The story is inspired by H.P. Lovecraft and is based on King’s short story Gramma, which was first published in Weirdbook magazine in 1984.

Chandler Riggs has recently become his own man on The Walking Dead when he was forced to shoot his mother to stop her from “turning,” and subsequently had to deal with the breakdown of his father and care of his newborn sister.

Recently named the most anticipated game of 2011 at the Spike TV Video Game Awards, and releasing worldwide in April 2011, Portal 2 will see players introduced to a host of fresh puzzles, devious new test chambers in never-before-seen areas of Aperture Science Labs and be reunited with GLaDOS, the occasionally murderous computer companion from the original Portal. The game’s all-new co-operative mode will feature its own unique campaign and characters, and will force players to both act and think together.

Portal 2 is Valve’s most innovative title in the company’s history and will be launched with a first-class launch campaign this April,” said Doug Lombardi, vice president of marketing at Valve. “We’re excited to be working with Electronic Arts to deliver this title as we expand our platform strategy to include the Mac and PlayStation 3 platforms.”

Portal 2 will be available for the PlayStation®3 computer entertainment system, Xbox 360® videogame and entertainment system, PC and Mac on April 19, 2011 in the U.S. and April 21, 2011 in the UK.
