Dark City gets a Blu-ray release with a huge rework...

William Monahan received a whole load of praise for his rewriting of the Infernal Affairs (Filmstalker review) films into the very successful The Departed (Filmstalker review), and while he's busy adapting another Asian film The Chaser, he's looking to his next piece of work, London Boulevard.

The story, according to Variety, sees a South London criminal who is released from prison and tries to go straight, becoming a handyman for a reclusive young actress. He's almost written the script and plans to direct as well.

Billy Crudup has joined Michael Mann's Public Enemies as J. Edgar Hoover alongside Johnny Depp, Christian Bale, Marion Cotillard, Giovanni Ribisi and Channing Tatum according to Variety.

Javier Bardem has been replaced on Francis Ford Coppola's Tetro film during rehearsals, rehearsals which he didn't attend according to Yahoo News. It seems that scheduling conflicts meant that Javier Bardem "became unavailable" as he is now reading for Rob Marshall's adaptation of the musical Nine. He, and his character, are being replaced with Carmen Maura taking the role now that it has been rewritten.

Sean Bean is starring in a horror western called High Moon - sounds cheesy doesn't it? - along with Rutger Hauer, Cillian Murphy and Jordan Bayne who breaks the story on her MyMarketingSpace site through Shock Till You Drop. John Woo is looking to executive produce apparently.

According to Bloody Disgusting Dark City is due for a Blu-ray release as well as a possible theatrical re-release now that the film has been re-edited, re-scored, and the effects revisited. It seems that there's going to be a lot more on the release for us to enjoy. David Goyer, the writer alongside Alex Proyas who also directed, told them that the cracking film is due to get an hour long making of, a longer cut, reworked effects, and lengthy interviews. I am excited, this is a superb film, and on Blu-ray too.
