Interview W/ Fallen & Remy Chandler Author Tom Sniegoski


With The Fallen movies finally being released on DVD and a new Remy Chandler book (Where Angels Fear To Tread) hitting bookshelves not long ago, I thought it would be kind of cool to track down author Thomas E. Sniegoski about his creations. As many of you know, Sniegoski has also worked on Hellboy comics, a Buffy the Vampire Slayer novel, an Angel novel, and his own young adult series entitled The Sleeper Conspiracy. We connected and he shared with me his thoughts on the Fallen movies, what to expect from Remy Chandler in the future, and what else he has up his sleeve and coming up. You can check out the interview after the jump.

The book will be hitting store shelves on September 13th through Living Ink. In the book, “the dragons of Starlight have been enslaving humans for over a century.

The Wolf Opens The Gates Of Heaven


Book One of author C.S. Lakin’s The Gates of Heaven Series will be hitting shelves on August 13th. The novel is entitled The Wolf of Tebron and is being published through Living Ink. This looks to be Lakin’s first venture into the world of fantasy writing. I figured I should include this since it is considered a fantasy novel and has been called “a stirring allegory of God’s love in classic fairy tale tradition.” It seems a bit light to be covered on the same site as movies about demon possession and battling angels, but fair is fair. After the jump, you can check out some more about the book and it’s author.

Harry Potter Says No To Bilbo


Well, for those Harry Potter haters out there, have no fear. Even if they offered the role to him, it sounds like Daniel Radcliffe has absolutely no interest in taking the role of Bilbo Baggins or even being involved in the big-screen adaptation of The Hobbit. Radcliffe recently told MTV News that as far as he’s concerned, he’s done with movie franchises in general. He point blank said that even if he was offered the role of Bilbo and David Yates was the director he wouldn’t want to be involved with the continuing tales of Middle Earth. He doesn’t think that he would ever even be offered the role because of the ridiculous rivalry between the two franchises which he says has been built up by the media. After the jump, you can read some more of what he said in the interview.

Peter Jackson WILL Direct The Hobbit!


Tolkien fans are dancing the dance of joy this afternoon for sure. According to Deadline New York, the impossible has indeed occurred. Peter Jackson has decided to direct the two installments of The Hobbit that Guillermo del Toro bailed out on earlier this month. He had also told Sci Fi Wire earlier this month that Jackson had “said his taking over was unlikely due to current commitments. But he did leave open a slim possibility—and we say ‘slim’ because he sounded a bit reluctant.” He also told them “if that’s what I have to do (take over the directing) to protect Warner Brothers’ investment, then obviously that’s one angle which I’ll explore.” Well, it looks like he definitely explored the angle and now “his deal is reportedly being negotiated right NOW with Warner Brothers, New Line and MGM.” After the jump, you can get the rest of the scoop.
