- Neil Gaiman’s imminent Hansel And Gretel graphic novel may soon be heading to a big screen near you. Farscape producer Juliet Blake has acquired the film rights and is developing the story as a live-action movie. “For me, retelling Hansel And Gretel was a way of telling an old tale in a way that made it immediate and true, and about us, now,” says Gaiman. “It reminds us of how paper thin civilization really is. It’s about hunger, and about families.”

- Movie Review: DorkShelf calls Terry Gilliam’s The Zero Theorem “a sprawling, thoughtful mess of a movie that tosses a cavalcade of ideas (both visual and philosophical) at the audience with almost reckless abandon. There’s a plot, but at times that can seem almost inconsequential. It’s as if Gilliam was so hungry to make a movie after a few years out of the game that he found a script he liked and then piled on a few dozen ideas that he had for other unmade movies regardless of whether or not they fit into a singular grand design. And yet, it’s still far from a bad movie.”
