Archangel Still In Development
Months ago it was announced that Tron: Legacy director Joseph Kosinski was developing a sci fi project called Archangel , but since then he seems to have become more interested in another project – Horizons (which is being developed by Universal), not to mention that his name keeps cropping up in connection with a remake of The Black Hole . But it seems Archangel hasn’t been abandoned. Variety reports that Adam Cozad has come aboard to rewrite the screenplay. Cozad wrote the upcoming adaptation of Mark Greaney's 2009 thriller novel The Gray Man and is one of the credited writers on the upcoming Untitled Jack Ryan Project. The film will be produced by Ridley and Tony Scott, and the original spec script was by newcomer Andrew Will. It deals with a military group assigned to hunt down alien life forms hiding out on Earth. The article doesn’t make it clear whether Kosinski is still actually attached.

See what you think of this “drama with sci fi elements” that Fox Searchlight acquired to distribution rights for at this year’s Sundance Festival.

“Hi Pumpkins, joss here.

Tomorrow we start shooting (I THINK I'm legally permitted to say that). Day one. That's right. We'll be shooting the pivotal death/betrayal/product placement/setting up the sequel/coming out scene, at the following address:

[Marvel Lawyers rush in, take Joss's keyboard, blowtorch a picture of his family like in "Stormy Monday", drink his milkshake, leave the seat up, fluff his pillows, violently unfluff his pillows, leave]

Went too far. My bad. Anyhoo, it should be a fun day, followed by the eighty thousand other fun days it will take to finish this. I'll be checking in from time to time, if there's news or I crave attention (i.e. am awake) . None of it will be Avengers news -- I have some very denty pillows to remind of that -- but I may have tidbits. (They're not about Firefly. I should say that up front, if only to protect Sis Mo from the HATORZ.)

Some of you may be saying, Joss! Why this link, here, now, why, huh, howcum? My friend Allyx turned me on to these guys, and I'll tell you, they've gotten me through this intensely pressurized, preply time. I strongly recommend checking out their other vids -- I've watched them many many times, and I have a very special place for "Teamwork" in my heart. These guys are the guys. And IS there a better movie title than "Eagles Are Turning People Into Horses"? I thought not.

So wish me luck. DO IT! LUCK! NOW! I'm off to finish some Buffy pages, and then figure out what the movie is about already. I'm pretty sure it's about the Justice League [Marvel Lawyers re-enter, unspeakability occurs] or possibly something else. I'll get it. I've been looking forward to this. For about 46 years.
