Report includes some awesome images of props, as well as news that this film is going to shoot in Chinaas a result of - well, not product placement as such, but a deal with DMG. Is this accurate & true?

On the props, they look great and genuinely both futuristic and part of a genuine curve of development from current design trends. The sleekness suggests this is a completely different visual aesthetic from Bloom, and not at all what I was expecting (one of those "lived futures" a la Blade Runner or Star Wars), unless Rian's got the heart to dent and damage these beautiful creations. I know I wouldn't.

I love it, not the look I was expecting but I like when film news both surprises and impresses me.
I can't stress how much I'm looking forward to this film.

"...production asked the industrial design students from the nearby university to design a bunch of futuristic props for the film."
clever rascals.

the speeder design is dope.

Wow. Yeah, not what I was expecting, but very cool. And asking the students to design stuff is a pretty great idea.

So, what do you say, Boss? Confirm/deny?

that would be plausible deniability, of course.

The whole story did kind of smack of a certain lack of reality, but I've never seen a fake rumor that was so detailed!

At any rate, I think this really marks a milestone in Rian's career. Willfully fabricated news stories! Fake casting added to imdb! You're in the big leagues now, sugar.

So then, no? Jeez, for a second I thought people were going to China without me.

It's going to be awesome no matter what though. :)

Nope - the props are cool but they aren't in the movie, and they're pretty far from our style.

The China thing is true and it's exciting, but isn't that huge a part of the movie. If anyone has read the script, I replaced Paris with Shanghai. It's a good change and makes sense, and lets us shoot the brief but important sequence that's set there in Shanghai for Shanghai rather than in New Orleans for Paris.

Are we allowed to admit it if we, err, may or may not have seen the script, like once or twice or so? Maybe on accident like, you know, you're riding your bike and you fall and your face lands in this movie script you found lying around? That would be okay? :)

No but seriously, I did see it posted somewhere a long while back and I couldn't help it, I couldn't help it, Brick bumped like five movies out of my list of top ten the first time I saw it, and then suddenly one day on IMDB or something there was a link to where it was posted and, it was like asking me not to eat the Ben & Jerry's or really, there's that hundred bucks on the ground in the middle of nowhere, you should just not touch it or, basically other things that are really desirable and we're asked as adults to turn the other way and instead we regress to ten years old and go, "NO. MINE."

I've read the script and I already know this is going in my top three of favorites, after The Usual Suspects and Shallow Grave, and maybe even before Shallow Grave, but I'll reserve judgment as yet. :D

As I said in a different thread, I am really partial to the aesthetic and sensibility of China, the art and the language and all that juicy stuff. I do Kung Fu and studied Chinese medicine and I am salivating over this China development, it is so cool.

You guys started filming today, how am I supposed to concentrate at work now?

Thanks for confirming this. Much as I love Paris, you can't deny the benefit of shooting in the real city.

Jules, you are belatedly forgiven (for doing nothing wrong.) Glad you dug the script. :D
