Bad news for Karl’s new movie The Loft

“As Above, So Below” moves back two weeks, while “The Loft” is now undated

Universal has taken “The Loft” off its release calendar and replaced it with the horror movie “As Above, So Below” which is set in the Paris catacombs, the studio announced Thursday.

“The Loft” stars James Marsden, Wentworth Miller, Matthias Schoenaerts, Eric Stonestreet and Karl Urban as five friends who share the same apartment for their extramarital affairs. When the body of an unknown young woman shows up there, they begin to turn on each other.

The film was directed by Erik Van Looy and had been set for release on Aug. 29, though a new date has not been announced.

Moving from Aug. 14 into the Aug. 29 slot is “As Above, So Below,” the Legendary thriller set in the Paris catacombs. It follows a team of explorers who venture into uncharted areas of the underground maze of bones, discovering dark secrets along the way. John Erick Dowdle directed the film, which he also co-wrote with brother Drew Dowdle.

The move gets “As Above, So Below” away from competition from bigger films targeted towards the same audience, including ”The Expendables 3” and Fox comedy “Let’s Be Cops.” The only other film opening wide on August 29 is Lionsgate’s horror movie “Jessabelle.”

After weeks of rumblings that Roberto Orci was the frontrunner, sources have told Variety that Skydance and Paramount have indeed tapped Orci to direct Paramount and Skydance’s “Star Trek 3.”

Orci is currently writing the story with J.D. Payne and Patrick McKay and had been campaigning to replace J.J. Abrams as director for some time. Abrams is busy with directing the next installment of the “Star Wars” franchise and will only be producing this pic.

Par, Skydance and his reps had no comment.

Plot details are unknown, but cast members including Chris Pine and Zachary Quinto are expected to return. Abrams will produce along with his producing partner Bryan Burke and Skydance’s David Ellison.

The news comes after Orci and longtime writing partner Alex Kurtzman decided to go their separate ways on future filmmaking endeavors (although their TV production company is staying intact). Sources had told Variety that both were looking to direct more pics and that going solo would be in the best interest of both parties.


After Dredd 2? Karl Urban suggests crowdfunding may be the way forward…

It’s the project that’s not going away, and we’re very glad to hear it. In spite of initially poor box office numbers for 2012’s Dredd movie, the film has continued to do well on home formats, and talk of a sequel continues. It’s been helped by the fact that the big screen’s Judge Dredd himself, Karl Urban, has been backing the idea too.

There’s still a proverbial mountain to climb to get the project off the ground, although Urban was at the Motor City Comic Con over the weekend, and was talking about the project again.

As ComicBook reports, Urban was always insistent that Dredd’s mask would stay on, and the man clearly enjoyed making the film. But as for a sequel? Nothing has thus far been written (although Alex Garland has suggested that he’ll be turning his attention to Dredd 2 before the year is out), but Urban confirmed he’d take the role again if it was offered. He then “urged the panel attendees to create a Kickstarter for it”.

In principle, this is a fine plan. However, a new Dredd movie is likely to need $30-40m for physical production, and that’s way beyond what any movie crowdfunding project has managed before. Still, we, and we suspect many others, would gladly put our hands in our pockets if it meant Dredd 2 would happen. We can’t say we have a few million lying around under the bed, though.

We wait and see if the Dredd team takes the crowdfunding route…
