Is this a good time to declare my disdain for the direction Comic-Con has taken? Not only are studios flaunting films that AREN’T at all comic book related, but now they’re wasting time and space over movies that haven’t even been filmed? Good grief.
In an announcement that Warner Bros. Pictures’ Pacific Rim will have a San Diego Comic-Con presence, it was revealed that Rinko Kikuchi (47 Ronin ) will be starring alongside Charlie Hunnam, Idris Elba and Charlie Day in Guillermo del Toro’s creature feature, reports Heat Vision. Legendary Pictures will bring all aforementioned talent to the Con as well as screenwriter Travis Beacham.
They also reveal that Jeff Bridges, Ben Barnes and Alicia Vikander will be on hand to talk about Seventh Son, the company’s adaptation of the young adult fantasy based on the Matt Greenberg book with the project’s director, Sergei Bodrov.
Director Alex Proyas (The Crow, Knowing) and Bradley Cooper will chat about Paradise Lost while the creator of video game Mass Effect, Casey Hudson, and the man writing its screen adaptation, Mark Protosevich, will kibitz about that sci-fi project.
