The first trailer for X3 will appear in front of King King, 20th Century Fox has confirmed for The Continuum.

King Kong is scheduled to open in theaters on Wednesday, Dec. 14.

"We're expecting it to get a very enthusiastic response and we're very excited about it," associate producer David Gorder said. "We've got great footage. We've got three more weeks of principal (photography), so we've got a lot of stuff packed into the trailer that you'll see in front of King Kong."

The trailer will likely give at least a glimpse at new-to-the-movies characters such as Beast (Kelsey Grammer), Juggernaut (Vinnie Jones) and Angel (Ben Foster).

Look for more on X3 soon here in The Continuum. - More Product. More Exclusives.

Platinum Studios and Blue Star Pictures have signed a deal with directors Danny and Oxide Pang to direct the upcoming The Darkness, a live-action movie based on the Top Cow character.

Platinum Studios will finance 50 percent of the production. Platinum, Blue Star and the Pang Brothers are jointly looking for a writer.

Danny and Oxide Pang, twin brothers best known for their action movie Bangkok Dangerous and the horror film, The Eye, recently finished another Blue Star feature, The Messengers, starring Dylan McDermott, John Corbett and Penelope Ann Miller, for Mandate Pictures and Sony/Columbia.

"The Pang brothers' unique horror style suits this project very well," said Platinum Studios chairman Scott Mitchell Rosenberg. "This is an opportunity to develop one of Platinum's many horror-genre properties with two of the best horror-directors available."

The Darkness is at Miramax with a progress to production clause through January.

"When we first approached Danny and Oxide with the idea, we found out they were already fans of the book," said Blue Star partner William Sherak. "The ideas they started coming up with were exactly in line with what we and Platinum had already discussed. We knew right then they were the only ones who could do this."

Rosenberg will produce for Platinum, with Director of Development Aaron Severson and Director of Production Jay Burns as co-producers. Top Cow founder and The Darkness creator Marc Silvestri will serve as executive producer and Top Cow president Matt Hawkins as co-producer. Rhiannon Meier will oversee development for Blue Star Pictures. - Anime Super Store


Marvel Comics announced on Wednesday that writer Paul Jenkins has signed an exclusive with the publisher.

"I grew up as a writer at Marvel... we've had a lot of mutual success," Jenkins said. "I'm at a time in my life and career when it makes sense to go exclusive. My wife and I are expecting our first child, I just signed the deal to produce my first film and things are looking interesting for my production company, Good Cop Bad Cop.

"In addition, I've been working on video games a lot... it was time to bring all of the comic work into one place, for the sake of my sanity

"This has been a long time coming. Let's not kid ourselves: I've pretty much been exclusive with Marvel for the last five or six years, with all due respect to the Distinguished Competition."

Jenkins, who is writing the current Generation M, will take over The Pulse.

"I would trust Paul Jenkins with any Marvel character," said editor-in-chief Joe Quesada.
