Weekly Ketchup: Harrison Ford to Play Wyatt Earp in Black Hats

Summary

Following San Diego Comic-Con last weekend, movie news slowed to a trickle this week, mostly consisting of last minute news from the convention, and a few other stories. What news did happen this week includes new movies for Kevin Bacon, Nicolas Cage, John Cusack and Harrison Ford, a sequel to Wolf Creek, an adaptation of The Nutcracker, and two very different cowboy movies.

First. Why would a movie based on a comic written by the singer if my chemical romance be a fresh idea?

At first I thought the same, since I hate that emolicious band, BUT I decided to geek it up and a little and went to check some forums and what not, apparently the comic is not bad. And the guys behind the script are not terrible. What I dont understand is why the director didnt raise some flags.

Clint Eastwood should't play Wyatt Earp. I'm not sure Ford is the right choice either, but I do like the element of Al Capone. Tombstone is one ofmy favorite westerns and this would be like a second chapter. It'll suffer without Doc Holliday. Bat Masterson isn't as interesting.

after cowboys and aliens , Ford should be avoiding the genre lie the plague, bet this one won't get made.

Ford has NEVER "stunk up a screen" and his cowboy in aliens was brilliant...to say otherwise is just to loudly proclaim to the world that you're an elitist film snob who has to dis on popular films for no good reason.

Black Hats sounds rather interesting, and having Harrison Ford in it makes me really want to see it.

I can see why R.I.P.D. would be borderline, the cast looks great, especially Jeff Bridges and Kevin Bacon. I can see why the writers/director could cause some doubt. I enjoyed RED, so hopefully there's more of that in it, and less of Flightplan.

While filming the movie about the Chilean miners in English would give it a broader audience in America, I think it might be more appropriate to film it in Spanish, since that is the native language of those the story most directly concerns and affects.

I would see the story of the miners if the team behind 127 Hours worked on it.

Slow news week. Only thing to catch my eye is Wolf Creek 2. I don't know why.

RIPD could be awesome, the cast is good, but I am worried since the screenwrtier's past projects have sucked, and the director is hit and miss.

Cage looks incredibly creepy in that picture, him and Cusack should swap roles.

Not much else really appeals to me this week.

I believe the assassin group in the Bourne movies was Treadstone, not Treadwell.
I hope the Chilean Miners movie is filmed in Spanish, otherwise it will feel too much like a cash grab.
I recommend everyone go out and buy Best Tales of Hoffman. ETA Hoffman is probably the biggest influence on your favorite fantasy novels. That anthology is a great translation (the works are originally in German) so, seriously, check it out.

Why is the Nicholas Cage and John Cusack movie 'rotten'? Don't tell me just because Nicholas Cage is in it...

As long as the films mentioned don't suck then more power to them. I'm iffy on most of the rotten developments. :/

Oh wow, so now you're verbally attaching me personally? That's a step down even for a microphallus such as yourself.

The Cuban Mines sound interesting. A dead body is not interesting, but the dead body is smarter, better, makes better comments & has more emotions than amd9012.

There is literally no surer sign of a douche bag than when someone feels the need to ridicule a freaking TYPO online...
