Carl Erik Rinsch was supposed to make his feature film debut with the "Alien" reboot, but since it didn't work out, he instead went to shoot "The Gift" short film for Phillips' marketing campaign.
We showed you the short film earlier today, and THR is now reporting that a bidding war broke out between several studios, including Warner Bros and 20th Century Fox. The goal is to turn the short into a feature film.
The problem with "The Gift" is that Rinsch never reveals the object that both humans, robots and police are looking for. For a feature film, the filmmakers will obviously have to figure out what that object is.
Not a bad idea. From all the short films (wich I repeat: watch them all, specially "The Hunt"), it was the only one that had a story that could work with more running time (all the others are perfect short stories). So, definitely.
I was surprised though, how different Moscow looked in this short - so stylish, in reality it looks exactly like in "Bourne supremacy". Our directors should take a hint: one CAN make this city look stylish and interesting.
Also, police does not drive VAZ 2105 or VAZ's in general anymore. They prefer Ford's and Porsche's (no sh*t - you do see police Cayenne's driving around). Corrupt f*ckers...
Risky move... all it takes is a good short and suddenly your a film maker!! I was one of the first ppl to comment how good the short was, but IDK if I would stretch that into 2 hours. I really dont care whats in that box that much!
It'll be gutwrenchingly awful, like watching a Michael Bay movie while having the runs.
Or maybe Michael Bay having the runs.
Or Shia LaDouche blowing Michael Bay, while he has the runs, which fall into Megan Fox's mouth, because she's been sown to his rusty sherrif's badge, all the while Shia's been sown to his one eyed jack ... Human Centipede, my ...
