    Thanks, I was about to post this earlier. :techman:

    The movie will release almost 5yrs to the date of when the first came out.
    It feels like its been longer than that since it came out in '07. Still the fact that it's started shooting catches me by surprise. I thought shooting was slated till October. Even better that means we might get some on set spy photos soon.

    Is the rug returning? It's one of my favourites.

    He was great in ROME, which is all I know him from but he is good actor. I hope he is given some material that the can really bring to the screen in a memorable way.

    Also at SHH, they are reporting that Violante Placido(The American) will have a role as the mother of the child wanted by dark forces.

    Filming is going to start in a few weeks so there likely may be some additional casting in the coming weeks just prior.

    This doesn't sound like a character description from the GR books, not one I'm too familar with anyway.
    Anyone know if this sounds like a known character? Sounds like the character will likely be the second main lead and once he finds Johnny will be an ad-hoc sidekick.

    I think Elba as Luke Cage would be awesome but I love the Blade character and vamps just haven't simmered down in popularity since the first Blade.

    ^ If they make another Blade movie (and I'd go see it), I don't see any reason (other than jail!) why Snipes can't return. He IS Blade. You only have to look at Sticky Fingaz' version to see how hard it is to replace The Wes.

    I concur. I'd rather see Idris as Luke Cage or even Black Panther. Chewetol Eijelfor or however you spell his name would be good too.

    The newest bit of gossip casting possibiites is that Christopher Lambert may get a bit part in the sequel.
    Be curious to see if this pans out and if it does what role he might be talking about getting. Production starts up in just a few more weeks.

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

    Is there a wood elemental in Ghost Rider's rogues' gallery?

    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. :p

    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. :)

    What do you mean, "pretending"?!?:confused: ;)

    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.

    Idris Elba's indicated an interest in playing Blade for a reboot...

    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. :techman:

    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.
