I hope that -if this is still on- Eli Roth works together with a fine cinematographer for Aleister Arcane. The comic has great visuals that really define the atmosphere. But all Eli Roth movies look kinda flat and in some cases cheap. He doesn't quite succeeded in creating a visual vibe before. Fingers crossed.

Doubt whether this project is still on. Jim didn't utter a word on this in his recent interviews. Talked only about 'kidding' and the novel..

He did mention 'a couple of movies', though. Maybe it's just too early to confirm them. Eli Roth is now shooting 'The House with a Clock in it's Walls', starring Jack Black and Cate Blanchett. That won't be finished before 2018, so production on 'Alister Arcane' won't start anytime soon anyway. I think they are all waiting to see if their sheduals will allow it.

Kidding plans are quite concrete, so I guess that's happening first of all. Considering the book is coming out this winter, it must be finished or at least be in the last stadium as we speak. Exciting times!

I already kinda forgot. :oops: It has been taken so long and I still find it very weird they didn't push this movie at festivals worldwide. That way they would at least got the attention it needs. I'm still thinking this will be a very limited release, will come straight to VOD outside the US and will be on Netflix (or other) very fast.

But on the other hand, the role of Aleister Arcane is nothing less than perfect for Jim Carrey. 8) I'm pretty sure he will surprise us all with this performance ...

I do believe they will make it more, um ... "friendly" to reach a wider audiance. And I think it will be closer to Fright Night (indeed) than Goosebumps, which also comes to mind. But the comics aim for an older audiance.

And yes, when I read the reactions on different movie related forums, the big question is (again) ... "Why did he refuse to support Kick Ass 2 if he's OK with this?" As I think people should move on, I do understand it makes his part in that story even more strange. Maybe he just thought it was a bad movie and wanted to get away from it?

Anyway : Exciting news ! I like the choices our beloved actor is making ... True Crimes, Bad Batch and now this. Goody.
