Didn’t see this one coming down the straight, no matter how big its chin.
Announced on the Burn Notice panel at Comic-Con today, a prequel movie to the series that will focus on Sam Axe, Bruce Campbell’s character, on his final mission as a Navy SEAL. The film will be set largely in Latin America, but it remains to be seen if it will be shot there.
And… that’s another film starring Bruce Campbell, so it can’t be all bad*. It’s also another film starring Bruce Campbell that seems tailor made for a TV premiere. Will we ever get a big-screen picture starring this man ever again? Bubba Nosferatu? Evil Dead 4? Time for me to let out a little sigh, I think. I’m not feeling too optimistic.
*My Name is Bruce what? The Man With the Screaming Brain who? No, I’ve never heard of Alien Apocalypse. Huh? Yeah, I’ve got my fingers in my ears – what about it?
“Hereafter” tells the story of three people who are touched by death in different ways. George (Matt Damon) is a blue-collar American who has a special connection to the afterlife. On the other side of the world, Marie (Cecile De France), a French journalist, has a near-death experience that shakes her reality. And when Marcus, a London schoolboy, loses the person closest to him, he desperately needs answers. Each on a path in search of the truth, their lives will intersect, forever changed by what they believe might—or must—exist in the hereafter.
I am a huge Tom Hardy fan. I first watched him in the the cult film Bronson. You may know him from the most recent summer blockbuster Inception. However, the good news is he is going to join the cast of Batman 3 which I am very excited about, coincidence that Christopher Nolan who is directing Batman 3 as well as directed and did the screenplay for Inception seems to see something in Tom as well.
