Syfy’s Slate Includes Adaptations of Frank Miller’s RONIN, Robert Kirkman’s CLONE, and Oni Press’ LETTER 44, Plus a New Show for Tricia Helfer

by     Posted 234 days ago


For every campy creature feature like Sharknado that Syfy churns out, they also have a handful of quality shows that get much less attention.  Longtime fans of the network (and their title genre) are already familiar with the current slate of shows, but now a host of new projects are on the way.  They include adaptations of Frank Miller’s comic series, Ronin; Robert Kirkman’s graphic novel, Clone; and Oni Press’ political space drama, Letter 44.  Plus, fans of Battlestar Galactica’s Tricia Helfer will be happy to hear she’s found herself a lead role on the new six-part space opera, Ascension.  Hit the jump for all of this and more.

Producer Gianni Nunnari IMMORTALS Interview slice

With director Tarsem Singh’s new film Immortals opening this weekend, Collider has been overrun with exclusive interviews with the filmmakers and cast over the past few days.  For those not familiar with Immortals (watch the trailer and clips), the film centers on Theseus (Henry Cavill), a mortal who teams up with the Greek gods in order to defeat the power-hungry King Hyperion (Mickey Rourke).  The film also stars Freida Pinto, Luke Evans, Isabel Lucas, Joseph Morgan, Kellan Lutz, and Stephen Dorff.

During my interview with producer Gianni Nunnari, we spoke about the challenge of getting the project made, filming in Montreal, the practical sets, how much things changed while filming, and what’s up with Frank Miller‘s Ronin.  In addition, Nunnari talked about the young Julius Caesar film he’s developing with Mark Canton called Emperor that’s based on a four-book series.  Hit the jump to watch.

At this weekend’s WonderCon in San Francisco, I was able to speak with director Sylvain White as he was there to promote The Losers – along with the cast of the film.  During the interview he told me he literally just finished the film, we talked about what will be on the DVD, Losers sequel talk, Pendragon, and he gave me an update on his feature film adaptation of Frank Miller’s Ronin.

If you’re one of those that has been waiting for Ronin to get made, it sounds like he’s going to be going full force on Ronin now that The Losers has wrapped.  Watch what he had to say after the jump.  As always, I’ve listed what we talked about by time index:

Last week I was able to speak with director Sylvain White. While most of our conversation is under embargo, I’ve been given permission to post some of what was said. Since Sylvain is currently attached to Frank Miller’s “Ronin” movie, I figured you’d like to hear what he said about his take on the property and where it currently is in development.

According to Sylvain, he’s about to get a new draft of the script and he envisions the film as a “big-budget, big blockbuster.” He went on to say he’d love to do it in 3D.” For more on the project, click the jump:
