Bag of Bones to Blue Steel: A Day in the life of… (4/10)

Posted by goldwriting on April 11, 2008

1 – Good news for those Stephen King fans out there, Bag of Bones is on it’s way to the inherently creepy screen. It’s been a little while since I read this one, but I remember feeling like it was a good, classically told ghost story. A neat little side note to this is the script is being written by an teacher of mine from film school, Matt Venne. He is a cool dude and seriously loves his bowls of chili spaghetti at Bob’s Big Boy, so clearly he is well equipped for this. [via Lilja’s Library]

2 – Some high school students made a hit list of people they wanted to kill, included on that list was Chuck Norris. The kids have since been arrested and Chuck’s response was a calmly worded message about these being the warning signs we need to all pay attention to in an effort to stop tragic events before they happen. My message to those kids is a little less subtle, “Seriously?! Chuck Norris?! Have you not read the lists? He has a fist behind his beard just begging to be unleashed. He is unkillable!” [via Starpulse]

3 – Following on that theme, it turns out that some parents are actually paying attention to their kids and trying to look for those exact signs. This mother actually had her own son committed for a year and a half and an alarm attached to his door in the house. These might sound like extreme examples, but I give her complete commendations for doing what she can to avert future violence and actually acting like a responsible parent. [via CNN]

4 – Uwe Boll just can’t seem to keep himself out of the firing range. Now his responses to those people who criticize him is getting even more insane. Just a taste for you, “track you down and rip you apart”. Yep, this is just the type of personality I want running my multi-million dollar film set. [via Defamer]

5 – Drunk texting is a horrible, horrible habit and I can admit to myself and others that I am not immune to it’s siren’s call, but this example of over-the-edge texting is just too brilliant to keep from the masses. The final text is going to sit in my brain for years. [via CollegeHumor]

6 – There have been some rumors floating around that test audiences have been uncomfortable in the early screenings of The Dark Knight due to a scene of Heath Ledger’s Joker being inside a body bag. Yes, I understand this cuts a little close to the bone for people who were fans of his, but we can’t go sanitizing any future footage of him just because of the terrible accident that befell him. He put his heart and soul into playing that part, maybe even a bit more than he should have, but the least we can do is respect and admire his nearly final work. Thankfully, the latest word is the scenes in question will stay in the picture and not be changed. For once, the studios are manning up. [via FilmDrunk]

7 – Now you can keep up with the day-to-day happenings on the upcoming Oscar contending film, Street Fighter: The Legend of Chun-Li, with their online production blog. Nothing too amazing on it yet, but if they begin to promise set pics and lots of Kristen Kreuk visuals, I’m getting my popcorn out and waiting by the computer for the heartwarming *ding* of new updates.

8 – Sometimes, the dumbest answer to a question is actually the right one. [via GorillaMask via Liquid Generation]

9 – Improv Everywhere decided to not only pull a new prank, but also give some kids the time of their lives. They staged a major league baseball style audience and NBC showcase, including the Good Year Blimp, around a random little league game. If this happened to me when I played little league, I’d be making $54 million dollars now on a 3 year contract. [via Pandachute]

10 – Is it just me or is Jon giving us the “Blue Steel” look? [via Garfield Minus Garfield]
