  • JMS at San Diego Comic Con 2007

    Not that this is much of a surprise, but JMS has now been added to the guest list for Comic Con.

    I'm going. Anybody else?

    The blurb mentions the title of his David movie though, which I guess is sort of new news:
    J. Michael Straczynski
    J. Michael Straczynski is the Hugo, Eisner and Inkpot Award winning writer of such books as The Amazing Spider-Man, The Fantastic Four, Supreme Power, The Book of Lost Souls and, starting this summer, Thor. He has just finished work as writer/producer/director of Babylon 5: The Lost Tales, and has written three films for major studios in the last year: World War Z for Paramount/Brad Pitt, Goliath: The Story of David for Universal/Akiva Goldsman, and Changeling for Imagine Entertainment, which is being produced by Ron Howard, starring Angelina Jolie, and directed by Clint Eastwood.

      Good spotting, Shabaz. That one's not even on IMDB yet.

        Well this is exciting news on two fronts. I've been out of the circle for a little bit but am going to start paying attention now that i need something to entertain me while I work Shhh! don't tell my boss. I'll be at SD I think this year. Has this David project been something people have been expecting? I guess that's the "historical" film he was talking about?

          Yes, JMS as spoken of the King David project before. He said in December:

          The screenplay for the film I'm writing for Universal will be turned in
          mid-January. Akiva Goldsman is among the producers on this project, a
          big budget historical movie based on the life of King David.
          We just never had a title for it before.

            I can't see Hollywood not taking the anti-Semitic route there.
            Recently, there was a reckoning. It occurred on November 4, 2014 across the United States. Voters, recognizing the failures of the current leadership and fearing their unchecked abuses of power, elected another party as the new majority. This is a first step toward preventing more damage and undoing some of the damage already done. Hopefully, this is as much as will be required.

                Yeah, especially with that well known anti-semite Akiva Goldsman making the movie.

                ...well, except him being Jewish, that is.

                  Being Jewish has nothing to do with one's capacity to be anti-Semitic. See Munich by Spielburg..

                    See another thread if you want to continue to discuss this, okay? Say the word and I'll open up a thread in the off-topic forum for y'all.

                      I'm not sure what there is to discuss. LIM makes an out of the blue accusation of antisemitism with regard to the makers of the David movie, which isn't just a total non sequitur, but actually in direct contradiction by what little I know of the movie maker in question. I honestly think it is in bad taste to go throwing around accusation like that in a thread like this, but I've no desire to engage his strange accusation, and I'm honestly confused why he brought such an odd point up in this thread in the first place.
