My name is Charlie, but if your looking for my work, I go by C. E. Dorsett. I write scifi, fantasy, and a touch of horror. I like to play with gothic, steampunk, decopunk, epic fantasy, and wuxia. I love to tell stories and talk about books, movies, series, and music.
Gothic Little Red Riding Hood heads to Grandma's House
Leonardo DiCaprio’s production company Appian Way is developing a gothic reimagining of Little Red Riding Hood. David Leslie Johnson, Frank Daabont’s former assistant and screenwriter of the recently cult horror film Orphan, has been to pen the script (/Film).
Mixed feelings swirl around me as I take in the news. I have seen:
- a noir Little Red Riding Hood
- dark fantasy Little Red Riding Hood
- surreal Little Red Riding Hood
- comedy Little Red Riding Hood
The idea of a Gothic one makes me giggle. If they do this, the theme song should be Glass House by Christian Death.
My biggest concern is that Leonardo DiCaprio is involved. I am not a fan of his or his companies work, but I am willing to give them the benefit of the doubt.
Will Chris Pine ruin The Green Lantern?
Rumors are spiraling around Chris Pine as the Green Lantern. I only have one thing to say:
DEAR GOD NO!!
Chris Pine has never done a good or even decent job in anything he has ever done. He even did a bad job in Princess Diaries 2! Which was not a role that required a lot of skill. I have not seen Star Trek yet, but his performance in the trailers has been William Shatner bad.
I have enough concerns about the movie because director Martin Campbell made Casino Royal, but he also made the 2 Antonio Banderas Zorro movies.
I really hope this is just a rumor.
Slave Leia Revolt
When an army of slave Leia’s gather in one room at Dragon*con, how many fans suffer heart attacks? …or at the very least forget the language they speak with regularity and loose the ability to look away?
