I think he's due for a return. Him and Michael Beihn. Oh and Pheobe Cates!

They're all due for a return. I wish Michael Beihn had more roles. I always thought he'd be another action star like Bruce Willis, Stallone or Arnold. He's past that point now (they all pretty much are barring Bruce who's just on the edge of "too old") but he still is young enough to pull off something action-y.

Can there be a B Team Expendables movie?

Michael Beihn, Michael Dudikoff, Rutger Hauer, Don The Dragon Wilson to name a few.

There's a big difference still between Michael Biehn and Don "The Dragon" Wilson.

A straight-to-DVD Expendables (which wouldn't work because they only have money to afford one lead actor) would probably be...

Scott Adkins, Michael Jai White, Gary Daniels (who happens to be in The Expendables!!!), Mark Dacascos, Don "The Dragon" Wilson, Olivier Gruner, David Bradley, Michael Dudikoff, Billy Blanks, Cynthia Rothrock, Jeff Speakman and Brian Bosworth.

It did well enough for a sequel? I didn't realize that.
It made $228m worldwide on a $110m budget before DVD sales. Heck it basically just broke over even with its USdom take. It just shows yet again that the notion about the net of "a film has to make 2-3times its budget" to garner sequels and/or be called a "hit" is a myth more times than it works in its favor.
It basically boils down to the studio CEO to say "Go!".. that word will come easy if the projected net profit is indeed in the 2/3x production cost or above margin but if the CEO likes the concept or the producer is a good enough sweet talker he may convince him to support something that will only make a moderate profit (better than no profit).

This is why Serenity actually got made at all.. someone quite high in management liked Firefly and Joiss Whedon and had faith in the production to greenlight it.. it would never knock down Star Wars or come close to it but once in a while Hollywood takes a risk.
Between Serenity, The Chronicles of Riddick, & Dune, I'd say Universal has some of the most sci-fi friendly executives in the business.

I'm not a huge fan of the 1st Ghost Rider. (I much prefered Mark Steven Johnson's work on Daredevil.) However, Nicolas Cage took a fairly anemic movie and made it much more interesting with his quirky performance. I'll see the sequel at some point.

It's a shame that they're not bringing back Peter Fonda. I was quite fond of hissing out, "Peter Fonda is the devil!" at every opportunity.

Couldn't they work out a work furlough program?

I'm hoping if they do a Blade movie they do so with a new actor and reboot the franchise. Snipes did well enough in the movies but each one he seemed to get progressively worse. I didn't like how he started to portray the character.

It's one of those times I actually want them to start over. I don't think they need to go in a totally new direction or anything but go with someone who seems less self-important I guess?

Ghost Rider with Nick Cage though is fine with me. He did take what would've been a mediocre movie and made it more entertaining. Obviously a lot of people found it just mediocre or worse but I liked it and want to see what else Cage can do with the role.

I wanted to like the first one so much, I think it skewed my view of how bad it actually was.

Lets hope they get this one right.

If only they fused Constantine and Ghost Rider together, would have made for a better movie. Keanu Reeves, as robotic as he can be, I think would have been better than Cage.

Re: Ghost Rider 2: Spirit of Vengeance Discussion, Pics etc Till Relea

Sony has decided to cut the budget in HALF for the Ghost Rider sequel. That is huge. Has there been a rewrite? I can't imagine budgeting for one script and then having your budget cut and be expected to shoot the same script.
Sony Pictures has reportedly cut its budget for the sequel "Ghost Rider: The Spirit Of Vengeance" from $135 million to a much leaner $75 million reports The Wrap.
The studio has apparently so much of its capital tied up in the "Spider-Man" reboot, "Men in Black 3" and David Fincher's "The Girl With the Dragon Tattoo" adaptation that Hyde Park Entertainment has had to step in to co-finance the project and will take international rights.
It doesn't sound like, just that money is tight. That being the case it seems like LOTS of money is spent on films that could be considered wasted money.
