Hollywood has sunk to new lows by setting a new world record for least amount of time in between film remakes. The new Hulk will star Edward Norton as Bruce Banner, and it looks as if Marvel has a few new ideas in store for Hulk's visual appeal.
“None, no. It's a new Hulk, new direction, new size, new color, new attitude. Anything that was done before is not in this movie. It's a very different kind of Hulk. It's more of a love story, it's more of a heroic Hulk. It's a kind of Hulk we loved in the show, so it's kind of more influenced by the show than anything else. It's very human, very touching, and huge action.”
If it's everything they loved about the television show, than this film will be anything but new. I never cared for the show, and the movie looked awfully stupid with all the unnecessary CGI. Now I like Edward Norton a lot, so they better give him a chance to act before falling back on ridiculous action sequences that don't advanced the story and always end up costing way too much, and if they do, it may have a chance at being a decent flick.
Ang Lee's version cost $137 million to make and not surprisingly lost money in its theatrical run. There is no listed budget for the remake but it looks like they may have scored a proficient writer in Zak Penn (X-Men 2, 3.)
Either way, fans are not going to be happy about this. They want film makers to save their creativity for new features, not old favorites. More info from firstshowing.net.
Tobey Maguire wants to do Spider-Man 4, but only if he personally approves of the script. Good for him, it's not like the producers need the kid they made into a mega-rich superstar, he doesn't owe them anything.
A obvious Spider-Man fanboy at IGN gives an early review of Spidey 3. Don't read it if you don't want to know what happens. Or at the very least, don't blame me for it.
Brad Pitt and George Clooney are up to no good with the Cohen Brothers for "Burn After Reading", set to shoot in August.
NBC breakout-hit Heroes has wrapped production, and IGN has interviews with many of the cast -- video here.
Found this link to an international trailer for Bourne Ultimatum, which is supposed to be better than the recently released domestic trailer.
A local rag has information on the on-going production of the National Treasure sequel. Apparently it rained in Rapid City, and it's a huge deal. A lot of people died, it was a total disaster. They'll always remember this day. *Moment of silence for all of those out-of-work actors*
And for anyone that actually cares, Alec Baldwin is sueing his ex-wife to find out how TMZ.com got the answering machine rant he left his poor kid. Seems the only people who had access to it was himself, the court, and his ex. Well gee, that's a tough one.
