The film ick Flashback: Part One

The year is half over, so I thought run a retrospective feature. A number of posts, each one reminding you of some of the bigger, better of more amusing film ick stories of the last six months - in chronogical order. Like Movie Minesweeper with short term memory problems.

This takes us up to January 17th:

- Terry Gilliam mentioned a new Brazil special edition DVD. I'm still waiting for another mention of this one anywhere.

- Some details turned up of Alejandro Jodorowsky's next, King Shot.

- Marc Forster was linked to a US remake of 36 Quai des Orfevres, then expected to star George Clooney and Robert De Niro.

- The Saw IV scribes were named, and rumours circulated about the director of the film. Incorrect rumours, as it happens.

- We found out about De Palma's Redacted.

- Michel Gondry was outed as the director developing the Debbie Harry biopic.

- Ken Russell spent some time in the Big Brother house. Crackers.

- The first No Country For Old Men still turned up here.

- I interviewed David Hewlett about A Dog's Breakfast. That film sounds brilliant and I can't wait to see it.

- Shyamalan signed to make a series of Avatar: The Last Airbender films.

- The MySpace page for Tracy unveiled the film's trailer, and very funny it was too.

- Dr. House played with his Nintendo DS.

- Paul McGuigan's Equalizer film was still moving forward.

- Drive Away Dykes popped up on the radar.

- I snuck a few plugs for this site into a Radio 2 show.

- A series of Spider-Man 3 spoilers were run. Most of them turned out to be true.

- I tipped Son of Rambow as the film to watch at Sundance this year. It went on to be the biggest sale of the festival which made me very happy.

- Jenna Jameson tried to hype a film of her 'life' by suggesting Scarlett Johansson would take the lead role.

- I reviewed the script for Guillermo del Toro's At the Mountains of Madness.

- The Golden Globes happened.

- John Carter of Mars ended up in the hands of Pixar.
