'Year One' Still On; Darren on 'Transmet' TPB; 'Below' Date

July 18, 2002: You should expect to hear some news about whether or not The Fountain will or won't be made soon. But until then...

BATMAN: YEAR ONE.
On our last update, we reported that Harry Knowles from Aint It Cool News stated that Batman: Year One was still moving forward, despite the fact that Warner Bros. greenlit another Batman film: Wolfgang Peterson's Batman & Superman flick. A few days ago Variety magazine reported the same. Also, in an article about Wolfgang Peterson's Bat-film, MTV.Com reported the following:

...A spokesperson for Darren Aronofsky ("Requiem for a Dream") has confirmed the filmmaker's plans to make "Batman: Year One."

BELOW.
Apparently the WWII submarine thriller written and executive produced by Darren Aronofsky titled Below is now scheduled for a release date of 12/31/02 according The Hollywood Stock Exchange.

TRANSMETROPOLITAN TRADE PAPER BACK.
I got excited when I heard that Darren was doing an intro to the crime/noir/scifi/thriller comic book called Transmetropolitan. (I personally have to say that it is one of the most exceptional comics out there!) Here's the news according to Bad Signal, a newsletter done by the Transmetropolitan author Warren Ellis:

"From word one, I got it. Profanity + anger + revolution + cynicism + drugs + cigarettes + truth +justice - fair = Spider Jerusalem. Attitude perfect, tattoos perfect, sidekicks perfect. His name perfect. He enters the gallery of classics. A true original."
-- Darren Aronofsky
(from his introduction to the next TRANSMET trade paperback, SPIDER'S THRASH.)

For anyone who wants to get into comics, this is a good series to start with. You should purchase the first trade paperback in the series, Transmetropolitan: Back on the Street. If you are interested in subsribing to Warren Ellis' e-message do so by sending an email to: badsignal-subscribe@lists.flirble.org.
