I believe so, but I wouldn't swear to it. Blackbeard came from Bristol (heavy West Country accent that lot).

Good to know us 'Merckans aren't the only folks who make fun of each others accents ! ( & English accents too .)


It's an English pasttime :) If you go 50 miles in any direction over here you find at least one regional accent totally different to your own. For a small country, we seem to have a huge number of regional accents. Then again, maybe its subjective because I was born here and notice them. I can recognize only a few US accents, but maybe you guys have the same situation. (Do we Brits sound all alike to our former colonies?)


Wiggy



Which US accents can you pick out?

Southern (anything south of Virginia counts) and Brooklyn :) The rest all sound pretty much the same to my foreign ears.

'Solomon Kane' Movie to Start Production In May

February 05, 2007

Davis Films will start production on Solomon Kane, based on the Robert E. Howard character, in May according to the Hollywood Reporter. Michael Bassett (Wilderness, Deathwatch) will direct.

Solomon Kane is the story of a driven 16th century English Puritan who travels the world fighting evil. Paradox Entertainment picked up the rights to the property, along with the rest of Howard's work (in addition to Conan, which it already owned), early last year (see "Paradox Picks Up Kull & Co.").

Looks like everything is still intact and will finally start rolling. :)

This is great news!!! To be honest, I never thought Conan would get another movie, but to find out that a lesser known character gets to hit the big screen is just fantastic! I'm not sure who I like more out of Conan and Kane...But I can't wait to see it.

I wonder if they'll be doing my most loved yarn... :rolleyes:

Thanks Strom!

Obsessed is just a word the lazy use to describe the dedicated!

For those not in the know the director Michael Bassett did post on this forum about the script:

With production set to start I would imagine the cast is either finalized or very close to being finalized. B)

Thats awesome!! I hope they dont use too many CG in the movie. I feel like in many movies where they go overboard with CG any form of realism goes down the drain and the movie starts to be uberetarded. Van helsing and underworld are prime examples of this.

I don't think it's complete. Maybe they are just offering release rights. On Basset's "blog" for 12/06, he is discussing doing storyboards and a letter he sent to a actor to convince him to play Kane. :blink:

Terry,
Currently buying and working my way through the Weird Works of Robert E howard series of books, I presume all the titles will be in there already, are they?

The Wildside books contain only the material from pulps that are now public domain (or *thought* to be public domain). As that includes the most important Solomon Kane tales, you're probably okay reading them there (as much as I would like to have you buy the Del Rey). "The Right Hand of Doom" and "The Blue Flame of Vengeance" were not published during Howard's lifetime and won't be included in the Weird Works. Neither will the poems "The One Black Stain" and "The Return of Sir Richard Grenville." Not sure what they'll do about "Solomon Kane's Homecoming." The DR also includes some fragments that won't be in the Weird Works, but those are mainly for completists, really, though they fill in some intriguing bits on Kane's life story.

Can't wait to see the product. I'm certain it will be a great film. Bassett is a fan of Howard's work, so I hope the core of the character comes through....

Can't wait to see him battling the flying harpies!!!

I wish this production the best - perhaps they will require someone who knows the ways of the blade/fight choreography/storyboarding/REH characters/film?
