Hey first off, here’s a pic of Hugh Jackman in the starring role of “Van Helsing”. Now this sounds like a highly entertaining flick with a young Van Helsing battling vampires and werewolves using some really cool weaponry. One of which it seems Jackman is holding here…wish we could get a better view.
Other newz. If the next one causes your gag reflex to work in overdrive, I don’t blame it for happening. It’s happening to me, even as I type this:
Batman 5: It’s being reported that the “official” casting of Bruce Wayne/Batman is now done. And the lucky bastard is…Ashton Kutchner. He of “That’s 70’s Show”. He had tested for Brett Ratner for Superman, and rumor has it, did well. BUT, here’s the jest of this:
“Christopher Nolan wants Guy Pearce. I think that’s about the extent of it. Essentially, the studio has had another ‘Ratner’ situation on their hands, because the director wants someone, and the studio wants someone else. That someone the studio wants is Ashton Kutcher. Thankfully, it’s not as big a deal as the whole Superman thing [which has been madness], because in this place everyone gets along - and from what I hear Kutcher is the new Batman. Done deal”.
And now we move onto the next bunch of craziness:
“Superman is looking a bit better. Remember the show “Roswell” on UPN? and “Star Trek”? Jonathan Frakes was the creator of the first and a star of the second. He recently did the “Thunderbirds” film. Anyway, looks like he might be doing it. He too has ideas for casting - Jason Behr and Colin Hanks - tested a week Friday - Behr for the lead, Hanks as Jimmy Olsen. Whilst Hanks is apparently ‘looking good’, Behr’s not a chance. Been a heap of actors in for Superman - Ashton too tested! as did Justin Timberlake, Brendan Fraser, Henry Cavill, Matthew Bomer - but only a handful for Olsen. At this stage - if things are locked down as they are expected to be this month - it’ll get rolling before December”.
