Fake Trailer Sends TECHNOTISE to the Big Screen

     June 11, 2010

Never underestimate the power of an effective trailer, especially if it’s for a film that doesn’t exist yet.  Heat Vision Blog reports that Legendary Pictures has picked up a pitch for a live-action version of the Serbian animated film Technotise: Edit & I.  Set in Belgrade in the year 2074, Technotise centers on “a failing art student who decides to get a chip implant to circumvent studying but gets more than she bargained for.” Last year, producers Scott Glassgold and Raymond Brothers bought the rights to the remake the film.  They were then tipped off to Texas-based media director Jacob Pitts who had created a popular fan-made trailer casting Nathan Fillion as Green Lantern.  Glassgold and Brothers commissioned Pitts to cut together a live-action trailer to help pitch Technotise.  It went viral in February, caught studio interest, Legendary bought a pitch by screenwriter Laeta Kalogridis (Shutter Island), and here we are.

Technotise is only the latest Internet short to ignite studio interest in a project.  In the past few months, the short films Pixels and Carl Rinsch’s The Gift have been picked up for feature adaptations.  Hit the jump to see trailer for the animated Technotise, Pitts’ live-action trailer for the film, and Pitts’ fan-made Green Lantern trailer.
