Very interesting-nice to see that Guggenheim is at least a fan. Thanks for the link!

Marc Guggenheim on The Flash's Darker Tone

by SuperHeroHype

Dec 9th, 2010

Barry Allen to be portrayed as forensic investigator

Continuing their interview from earlier this week, MTV's Splash Page discussed the in-development Flash film with comic book author and screenwriter Marc Guggenheim, who reiterated that the current screenplay has a darker, crime element and will focus on the investigational side of its lead.

"When Barry Allen was the character, he was a science policeman, "Guggenheim explains, "We’re obviously updating that and now he’s in forensics and CSI. The tone is sort of darker, and more like "Seven" and "Silence of the Lambs" in that mysterious and noir-ish way, which is also working in conjunction with the superhero elements... There's also an element of a sports movie, because the character is so physical and I feel like there is an athleticism to his power that other superheroes don’t have."

Though Guggenheim also acknowledges that the Flash has some of comicdom's most colorful villains, he remains mum on which of them may make it to the big screen when development on The Flash moves forward.

Screenwriter Dan Mazeau Updates on Bleach, The Flash and Jonny Quest

by SuperHeroHype

March 30, 2012

Dan Mazeau, whose screenplay for Wrath of the Titans is realized in theaters today, is also the man behind a number of upcoming genre projects, including Bleach, The Flash and Jonny Quest. IFC caught up with Mazeau and managed to get a few updates about all three.

"I'm currently working on 'Bleach' and the idea is to set it in Japan and really be respectful to the source material," says Mazeu. "It's an amazing story. I've been shorthanding it as an 'action-adventure 'Sixth Sense',' but obviously on a bigger canvas than that. So I'm incredibly excited about that. Its a good one.”

The Flash and Jonny Quest, meanwhile, share a sticking point in getting to the big screen in that both scripts are in search of a specific talent to bring the printed page to live. In the case of the former, the search is on for a director that can realize Mazeau's Barry Allen tale.

"[H]e can't just be a guy who runs fast," Mazeau explains.

For Jonny Quest, the holdup is largely in finding a young actor who can balance the bigger-than-life adventures of the title character but who also has the dramatic side necessary for the film's more serious elements.

"There's real weight to it," says Mazeau of his script. "People die in the 'Jonny Quest' cartoons. I think 'Spy Kids’'was fun, but it's lighter than what 'Jonny Quest' would be."
