Okay, one more time. This time I?ll type this up in Word first! Yeah, what a GREAT idea…grrr.
Regarding Indy 4: Shooting begins in June 2004. With the movie opening for July 2005, there?s plenty of time for script rewrites, etc. AND there?s several versions of the script floating about. The only thing I can say for sure at this point is that the premise will be set in the 1950?s with a 62-year old Jones. A positive here is the involvement of Lawrence Kasdan. He?s partly responsible for Raiders and Empire Strikes Back. Also the director of Silverado, The Big Chill, Wyatt Earp and the upcoming Dreamcatcher. I just love the stuff! Oh, and scratch off Karen Allen, I just saw Kate Capshaw?s name attached. Scarrrry. But then she?s MRS. Spielberg…
On to King Conan: If anything, even Arnold is a better actor than Lou Ferrigno. Also, the story is about a aging, older Conan, who has been the King of Cimmeria for several years already (which fits Arnold’s current physical makeup perfectly). Arnold is also a still more of a bankable name - A LOT more than Ferrigno.
Catwoman: First there was Ashley Judd, then Halle Berry. The latest? Nicole Kidman. But she won?t commit until she reads a new script.
Personally, I think Beyonce Knowles would be a good choice. But that?s me…
Superman: The latest actor to be considered as the ?Last Son of Krypton?? Victor Webster. He?s the mutant who deals with electricity on ?Mutant X?.
Rambo IV: French director Luc Besson (“The Fifth Element”) might be in talks with Dimension Films to direct the next Rambo movie.
The Chronicles of Riddick: Canadian actor Colm Feore (“Chicago”, “Pearl Harbor”) has been cast in the sequel to “Pitch Black”.
Fury Road: Mad Max 4: Second unit cameras are rumored to have been rolling in Antarctica since before Christmas and will run till late February.
Daredevil: Already talk of a sequel. There are some of you who may love to see a crossover flick of Daredevil/Spiderman. I know I would. And in comic book history, these two have gone toe to toe. However, there are some things to think of. Marvel kinda did a ?ooops? (IMO), by selling the movie rights to two different studios. Sony got Spider-man, while 20th Century got Daredevil. Let?s hope these two studios can overcome ?H-Town Politics? and let this thing happen. BUT, with that being said, I have this to ponder. Recently, in X2 news, it was said that a certain Marvel character makes a surprise appearance towards the end, possibly leading to a future crossover. Since 20th Century is the studio for both (X2 and Daredevil), I?m thinking Daredevil could be that character. Just thinkin? out loud
Shanghai Knights: Man, looking forward to this one! Just read a description of the fight between Donnie Yen and Jackie Chan. COOLNESS! We?ll be checking this one out tomorrow night, I?ll keep y?all posted as to what I thought. The next sequel is going to be called: Shanghai Dawn and may be set at the Pyramids. Hmmmmm…I really enjoy the pairing of Chan and Owen Wilson. Much more so than Chan with Tucker…eeeeuuuuwwww.
Oh, one more than I?m done! Lotr: The Return of the King: Folks, Peter Jackson has been given freedom by New Line to take as much time as possible on this film! In other words: If Peter wants the running time to be 3.5 to 4 hours, then it?s gonna be 3.5 to 4 hours! Woo hoo!
