Stalked: Pancho Villa, A Minute of Silence, new Watchmen video, Gambon in Book of Eli

Emir Kusturica to direct Pancho Villa movie…

Baader Meinhof Complex writer and director are back together for A Minute of Silence…

New Watchman viral video online…

Michael Gambon cast in Book of Eli…

Pancho Villa is the next South American revolutionary to get a biographical film as Serbian film-maker Emir Kusturica is set to bring his story to life on the big screen along with his regular writing partner Gordan Mihic from the novel The Friends of Pancho Villa by James Carlos Blake (Amazon.co.uk / Amazon.com). Variety tells us that the budget will be kept low and that the key figure in Mexico’s past has been seen on screen a number of times before, Antonio Banderas, Telly Savalas and even Villa himself in a 1914 film, have all played the legendary Pancho Villa.

According to Variety Uli Edel, who recently directed The Baader Meinhof Complex, is joining up with the same writer Bernd Eichinger to develop the film Schweigeminute, aka A Minute of Silence which is an adaptation of the novel by Siefried Lenz (Amazon.co.uk / Amazon.com). The story is set in the 1950’s and tells of a summer love affair between a high school teacher and one of her students. No word on cast yet, but I’d be a fan of Franka Potente in there.

There’s a new marketing clip online for the Watchmen and it explains the Keene act, the government act in the story which is responsible for banning costumed heroes. You can see it right here through IESB:

Michael Gambon is joining the cast of The Book of Eli. The film already stars Denzel Washington, Gary Oldman, Jennifer Beals and Ray Stevenson and is being directed by Allen and Albert Hughes. The story sees Washington playing a loner who is travelling across a wasteland in a post-apocalyptic future. Gambon is set to play one of a strange couple who hold onto the old traditions despite the harsh new reality of the future. The story comes from The Hollywood Reporter
