LAUREL & HARDY JOIN AMERICAN MYTHOLOGY COMICS

Source: American Mythology | Categories: MIsc | Comments (0) | E-mail Article | Add a Comment



There are few names in the history of comedy which have stood the test of time. Acts who transcend age and bring laughter to generations like few have before or after them. They have been recognized as a template for modern humor and celebrated by today’s most popular funnymen and women alike. Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy were the pinnacle of comedic genius for their time.

Now, American Mythology Comics, the same company who brought The Three Stooges back into the comics’ spotlight, is bringing Laurel & Hardy’s beloved slapstick shenanigans back to their legion of fans with the release of a new comic book in April of 2019! The comic book publisher plans to both celebrate and pay tribute to Stan and Ollie’s legacy by bringing new stories to fans with the upcoming series, and also by reprinting some of their frantic follies from years past.

Art for the new series will be created by veteran comic artist, Jorge Pacheco (Rocky & Bullwinkle, Pink Panther, Looney Tunes). Pacheco is well-versed with illustrating the comedy duo, having already done so over thirty years ago when Stan and Ollie last saw the paneled pages of comics. The stories for the premiere issue will be provided by novelist and comic writer, S.A. Check (The Three Stooges, Casper, Legend Gary), and multi-media writer, Jordan Gershowitz (Tom and Jerry, Danger Mouse, Sesame Street). Both new stories will center on honoring the tone and feel of the original skits made famous by the comedians.

“Sometimes you just get lucky,” said book artist Pacheco. “My step father brought a comic book home for me. It was a monster book with art by Jack Kirby & Steve Ditko. How was I supposed to know, my first exposure to comics was drawn by probably the two greatest comic book artists ever? Then, one day, I was channel surfing on TV when I came across this "chubby guy & his goofy friend". I watched it and was immediately hooked. Little did I know, I was watching the greatest comedic duo ever, Laurel & Hardy. Again, I got lucky. So, throughout childhood, I read comics, watched monster shows & the great Laurel & Hardy movies on a mini movie projector my mother had bought me until the films were nothing but tatters. Recently, my good friends at American Mythology asked if I'd like to be an artist on a new project for the publisher. I was excited & asked what book? He said Laurel & Hardy. Sometimes, luck is a wonderful thing. I hope you all enjoy the comedic duo's antics half as much as I've enjoyed bringing L&H to life in these comic pages!”

“It’s a rare occasion for a writer to contribute in celebrating two comedic geniuses like Stan Laurel and Oliver Hardy,” said book writer S.A. Check. “When I learned American Mythology had a shot at working with Larry Harmon Pictures to bring the comedy of these two larger than life icons back to fans, I was the first in line to have a shot at working on the book. One of my favorite parts of the process has been delving back into the skits and movies and numerous articles written about the comedians, and remembering why so many fans continue to hold their work in such high regard. I’m very proud of my work on the project, and I only hope I managed to bring a fraction of the magic they shared on the stage and screen back to fans.”

Laurel and Hardy were a comedy act known best during the early Classical Hollywood era of American cinema. The team was composed of Stan Laurel, an Englishman, and Oliver Hardy, an American. The duo appeared as a team in 107 films between 1927 and 1950. The official Laurel and Hardy appreciation society is known as “The Sons of the Desert”, named after a fictional fraternal society in their 1933 film of the same name.

"We are excited and honored to work with American Mythology on a new line of Laurel & Hardy Comic Books. With the current international release of our new Laurel & Hardy feature film, Stan & Ollie, the timing is perfect to reintroduce Laurel & Hardy Comics to new generations of Laurel & Hardy fans, as well as of course to the millions of existing fans around the world," said Marci Breth, Vice President of Larry Harmon Pictures Corporation.

Laurel & Hardy #1, will be solicited in Diamond Comic Distributors’ February 2019 Previews catalog, the premier source of merchandise for the comic book specialty market, and slated for release in April 2019. Comic book fans are encouraged to reserve copies with their local comic book retailers.

Disney is pushing Cruella from Dec. 23, 2020, to May 28, 2021, the beginning of the lucrative Memorial Day weekend, THR reports.

Emma Stone stars as Cruella de Vil, the villain of the 1961 animated classic 101 Dalmatians.

It's not a surprise that Disney is moving Cruella, since Steven Spielberg's West Side Story — another property inherited in its deal with Fox — is set to open over Christmas 2020.
'Y THE LAST MAN' CASTS MONKEY FROM 'FRIENDS' AS CAPUCHIN AMPERSAND

Ross and Marcel, and Ampersand following in Hamlet’s footsteps on the cover of Y: The Last Man #16.

When FX CEO John Landgraf was reviewing dailies on the network's highly anticipated adaptation of Brian K. Vaughan's beloved graphic novel Y: The Last Man, he instantly recognized the face of one of the actors. In fact, he was convinced it was someone he worked with on Friends during his stint running the current department at NBC.

Turns out, Landgraf was right — the pet monkey he saw onscreen starring opposite Y lead Barry Keoghan was in fact the same monkey from Friends. In real life, she's a female named Katie, but for Y she’s playing the opposite sex.

The story centers on Keoghan’s Yorick Brown, the last surviving man on Earth, who is on a mission to find out why the male population has been wiped out. His primate companion, Ampersand (Katie), is the only other male mammal to have survived the plague.

THR checked in with representatives for Katie’s animal trainer, who confirmed the casting as well as her age: She’s currently in her mid- to late 20s and still has plenty of career left as capuchin monkeys can live to the ripe old age of 40.

But there’s one hitch. Although Katie has already filmed her part in the pilot, the show has weathered changes at the top with showrunners Aida Croal and Michael Green being replaced by Eliza Clark. Because of the swap, it’s unclear if Katie will continue on the project or if she’ll be replaced by a CGI version by the time the show debuts in 2020.

In addition to Wachowski, the script was also written by Aleksandar Hemon and David Mitchell. Wachowski is also producing with Grant Hill. Sources say the film is eyed to begin production at the top of 2020.
BREAKING: DISNEY-SONY STANDOFF ENDS MARVEL STUDIOS AND KEVIN FEIGE'S INVOLVEMENT IN 'SPIDER-MAN'

Kevin Feige Tom Rothman

Deadline is reporting exclusively that Marvel Studios president Kevin Feige won’t produce any further Spider-Man films because of an inability by Disney and Sony Pictures to reach new terms that would have given the former a co-financing stake going forward.

A dispute that has taken place over the past few months at the top of Disney and Sony has essentially nixed Feige, and the future involvement of Marvel from the Spider-Man universe, the site reports.

There is a lot of webbing here, but it all comes down to money. Disney asked that future Spider-Man films be a 50/50 co-financing arrangement between the studios, and there were discussions that this might extend to other films in the Spider-Man universe. Sony turned that offer down. Led by Tom Rothman and Tony Vinciquerra, Sony just simply didn’t want to share its biggest franchise. Sony proposed keeping the arrangement going under the current terms where Marvel receives in the range of 5% of first dollar gross, sources said. Disney refused.

Sources said Disney’s top brass for the past several months has sought new terms for Feige and the Marvel cross-pollination to continue. As the Spider-Man relationship grew, Feige and Sony Pictures chief Tom Rothman spoke about the possibility of a wider involvement in the Sony-controlled Spider-Man universe, which contains 900 characters.

No comment to Deadline's report from Marvel/Disney, Feige or Sony Pictures.
'JOKER' DIRECTOR SAYS THE MOVIE COULD GET A SEQUEL

joker movie 2019 trailer joaquin phoenix

Joker is a first for DC Films as it’ll break out of the continuity of the DCEU and tell its own standalone take on the Clown Prince of Crime’s origins, untethered to any need to start or continue a franchise. Well, at least that’s what we thought.

Director Todd Phillips has now revealed that he’s not ruling out following up Joker with a sequel. With one stipulation, that is: leading man Joaquin Phoenix has to return.

In an interview, Phillips was asked about the chances of a Joker 2. The director didn’t commit to anything, obviously, but did make clear that if all of the elements aligned so that the opportunity was there, he’d definitely hop back in the saddle to make another. (via We Got This Covered)

But first, we need to see how Joker fares when it hits theaters on October 4th.
