Rogue Male

Since the plans sound quite definite and not just rumours, I am giving this a thread of its own:

http://www.hollywoodreporter.com/news/benedict-cumberbatch-star-produce-adaptation-916245

Sounds very promising. http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/happy.png

Re: Rogue Male

Very exciting! http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

I cannot live without brainwork. What else is there to live for? Stand at the window there. Was there ever such a dreary, dismal, unprofitable world? See how the yellow fog swirls down the street and drifts across the dun-coloured houses. What could be more hopelessly prosaic and material? What is the use of having powers, Doctor, when one has no field upon which to exert them?

Re: Rogue Male

It will be a "proper" film, won't it? Not just a short version?

Re: Rogue Male

Yes, I think it will be a feature film of regular length, gently.

Re: Rogue Male

Just read an article about it. Sounds interesting.

I spend the last year reading almost nothing but books and information material about the German resistance during the Nazi regime. We Germans have it in school of course but it's school. I always wanted to take the time going deep into detail and not just hearing about Stauffenberg and 20.July 1944. Although I read a very good Stauffenberg biography.

So topics like that are very close to my heart. I hope he is able to make that film.

Re: Rogue Male

I did not see the movie but I am a big fan of Peter and know that he loved the book and the film.

Re: Rogue Male

I haven't heard of it before but it sounds quite interesting - better than the impression the title gave me, if I'm being honest, though that could be because I didn't know the context.

*giggle*  Just hearing the title you might think it was soft core porn.  http://cdn.boardhost.com/emoticons/grin.png

Re: Rogue Male

I actually looked up 'rogue' and it really is an unpleasant word.
But I kind of hope it refers to the dictator!

Re: Rogue Male

Well, there will be Disney Star Wars film called Rogue one or something like that and Han Solo was definitely rogue!
I like the project, but don't get excited yet: there have been so many announcements that seemed solid the past two years and in the end they failed to materialize. They don't have the script yet, and without a good script even a wonderful source material doesn't guarantee a good film.

Re: Rogue Male

That is true. I remember four years ago or so hearing that there was going to be a live action film adaptation of Cowboy Bebop and it never got made (but that might not be the best example since it might not have turned out to be that good, anyway).

Re: Rogue Male

That sounds very interesting - and it puts a new book on my "to read"- list. All the books I read because of Benedict ...

Re: Rogue Male

Sadly, I've never managed to read any of them.
I held off on Atonement for years and in the end watched the film, so still haven't read the book.
Bought 12 Years A Slave, but now having seen the film I don't want to read the book- too harrowing!
I bought that explorer one, that Benedict never made the film for in the end, though I still fancy the book.

Re: Rogue Male

I preferred the book of Atonement to the film (I'd read it when it came out).   It's very much a book where you're seeing things through a certain point of view, and I think that often works better on the page than on film.  On film, you're actually seeing it rather than having it described to you.

I really enjoyed To the Ends of the Earth!
