    Wait a minute... Mary Elizabeth Winstead is Mary Todd Lincoln? One of probably the least attractive first ladies ever? Kudos Hollywood. :techman:

    There was a report today from Trent saying that his role was meant to be a cameo and a surprise. So I guess the media got it leaked or something.

    Reznor clarifies (AV Club):

    "Basically, I came to my senses, realized that this project is asininely stupid, and pulled out before my dignity became permanently tarnished, much like David O. Russell and that Pride and Zombies abortion." :p

    :rolleyes: Jesus Christ, we get it. You like to try and bash concepts that are objectively brilliant and to deprive yourself of things that rule.

    If I wasn't convinced by the premise - which I was - now I'm definitely convinced. :lol: No but seriously, chances for Mary Elizabeth Winstead in more ass-kicking action? That was the only thing lacking from Scott Pilgrim.

    That means you're for it? :rommie:

    Hey if Reznor doesn't want to join the party, his loss. I never pegged him for the "worried about my dignity" type...

    I'm only "trying" to bash the concept? You mean you want me to be even more derisive about such flim-flammery? :p

    [​IMG]i'd love to see Robert Knepper of Prison Break & Heroes at least try out....He's a good actor, and i think has the look .

    he's also not too short (almost 6 feet tall)

    That's unfortunate Reznor dropped out. I'm curious about his comment that aspects of the project were changing at the time of the media leak.

    I have yet read the book but I love the concept of this movie . and lincoln was one of my favorite presidents .He founded the greatest party ever the republicans . Now I gotta wonder how many more of his party are vampire slayers ?

    you can'nt bash anything to see it or try or read it those who bash things before even trying are _____ .

    No, I'm dead set against it, and will remain so following my death. ;)

    Reznor has an Oscar now; that sort of thing can change one's perception of one's self. You think that if Natalie Portman weren't expecting, that she'd still be interested in PP&Z after her Oscar win? Unlikely, I suspect.

    and wat if they did a sequel in which lincoln and a ressitated Tomas Jeffersin fought of a ninja invasion that would be the best moviefilm ever

    I would still give it a watch just to see if it is any good . I don't go by crittics . I go by what I like and will give all most anything a try .

    And that is quite enough of that. Regardless of your opposing views, there is no cause for you to be mocking, so please step back from that line.

    Need I point out Ben Kingsley's turns in Thunderbirds and Bloodrayne?

    Or Charlize Theron in Aeon Flux?

    Or Michael Caine in, for example, Jaws 4?
