Re: Bowie/Aronofsky/Mansell rumours new [re: Adam]  

Being a comic geek this stuff seems like a dream come true to me (especially since Watchmen is probably the best and most influential comic book ever, not to mention my favorite), so whenever more info on this pops up in comic related websites I'll keep posting it here.

Bring back Bowie's moustache!

Re: Bowie/Aronofsky/Mansell rumours new [re: Mxy]  

Oh fucking cool! I had no idea that a Watchmen movie was in production. I love Alan Moore and have recently been re-reading the Swamp Thing books (just finsished the bit where he turns Gotham City into a jungle, and beats up Batman until they release Abby from prison. Then he get's shot with the weapon that Lex Luthor designed. Can't wait for the next bit!). Thanks for the info.

Another Moore movie in pre-production is V for Vendetta, adapted and produced by the Wachowskis... http://vforvendetta.warnerbros.com/
I don't know what to expect from them after the last two Matrix movies (and I don't know what to expect from Hollywood after the last two Moore "adaptations"), but what gives me faith in this project is that apparently one of the Wachowski brothers (the fully male one) talked with Moore about the project and got his approval. Moore usually dissaproves Hollywood adaptations of his work (he asked that his name was removed from "Constantine", and declined getting money for it), so if he liked the V for Vendetta proposal it can't be that bad.

Just rumours after all. new [re: Mxy]  

From Bowienet today stating that indeed there will be NO resurrection of Major Tom still it was a nice thought.

Millions weep a fountain...

Had a few e-mails regarding DB's involvement with a rock opera version of Alan Moore's comic Watchmen and a new version of Space Oddity for Darren Aronofsky's upcoming movie, The Fountain.

It seems the rumours were started online by a Montreal set visit report from The Fountain by Moriarty on the Ain't It Cool News website, from where, this excerpt:

"We heard some cool news about David Bowie, who is working with Mansell to write a new Major Tom song for the end of the film. His “Space Oddity” was one of the things that first inspired Aronofsky, and the way he portrays the desolation of deep space travel certainly calls that song to mind. We also learned that Bowie grilled Aronofsky about his involvement with WATCHMEN. Turns out Bowie’s working on a rock opera version of WATCHMEN on his own, although details about that production are still tentative."

Well, plainly put, David Bowie definitely isn't involved with a rock opera version of Watchmen, even if such a thing is happening. And, as much as the Space Oddity re-record is a nice idea, (I still love the beautifully sparse remake that graced the B-side of the 1980 Alabama Song 7" single) Major Tom is not about to be reawakened from his deep space slumber.

However, the good news is that Aronofsky has asked David to write a song for the movie...so fingers crossed, kidz. Give me a new song over a remake any day...well, 99 out of a hundred days.

Well done, B.Net, for denying the rumour then attesting to its authenticity. From which part of "write a new (Major Tom) song" did they get the idea that he was going to rerecord Space Oddity?

Is There Anybody In There?

Really! Huh I don't believe that for one moment It's way too obvious and we all know Mr Bowie is more subtle than that

In an interview in the 80s that is what Carlos said, he obviously failed to see the bits about the crusades and religion.
