Batman III - Hard Rumor

It appears that CatWoman will be cast as the next villian sensation for Batman Part Tres.
The thinking here is that casting a female will distract fans and audiences from the Heath Ledger Joker Saga... unfortunately it will be for the benefit of the film.  Bale wants it - it places the bulk of the spotlight on him.  Knowing Nolan, he will toss in a third tier villain to give Batman his full.
Regardless, they will insert a female into the lead villain rolse as "CatWoman" and then there will be a full TWO year gap until the hype can re-build in anticipation of a new male villain to take hold... in the form of either The Penguin... or The Riddler.
I am hoping J.Gordon Levitt does not get cast - as he is a wanna be looking to benefit from Heath Ledger's demise.
The best choice for The Riddler would be:

Eastwood's "Hereafter" - yet again... ANOTHER RIP-OFF OF... YEP, YOU GUESSED IT...

Well, you guessed it folks.  The Gajonka is back ...  Eastwood is back ... the yawn is back... AND SO IS ANOTHER HOLLYWOOD TITLE THAT'S UNDERLYING PREMISE IS A RIP-OFF OF WALKEN;S CHARACTER IN "THE DEAD ZONE" A GREAT BOOK BY STEPHEN KING.

The ability to predict the future simply by coming into contact with a person.  The list is endless.  There's even a bloody TV show on it (medium) meaning... it's bad... real bad.

Final Destination- ripped off from The Dead Zone
On and on and on.

So here we go - when will it end?
Eastwood ( who directed Mr. Safe - Matt Damon
A'hem, anyway, so Easty and Damy are back together again, why?  Who the hell knows.  But this is certain, they have spent the last year working on a film project that is a rip-off of The Dead Zone. 

So fucking pathetic.


Background:  Universal Pictures has and owns the exclusive RIGHTS to the old monster movie main characters.  So, what results is that Dracula, Frankenstein, The Wolfman, The Mummy - these monsters and the exact appearance of them - are the EXCLUSIVE PROPRTY of Universal Pictures.  No other studio: indy, foreign or hwood, can make a film about these monsters, or even have them in their films.  Proof of Point:  Remember Mary Shelly's Frankenstein?  With Robert DeNiro, look it up on wiki-film, and you will find that Universla Pictures was the studio.  "Frankenstein Unbound" one of the best unknown films of the 90;s, a cult classic of GFU, is also Universal.
Important exceptions to the rule include Andy Warhol's JR-X rated films which have the monsyers and the name but the key is "the APPEARANCE" of the se monsters.  Another great example, is Fred Dekker, (HOUSE) whose greatest ( and only) worthy film is another fave of GFU:  "The Monster Squad."  Dekker contacted Universal Pictures - they said no - "you cannot use our monsters in your film."  So Dekker, with the utmost respect created the monsters - but with an important kicker - as long as they do not LOOK LIKE the original monsters.  As long as Frankenstein is not GREEN, as Long as The WOLFMAN does not look like THE WOLFMAN.

So, finally, we have a UNIVERSAL PICTURES release -0 long fucking overdue - of THE WOLFMAN.  However, it is worth the wait and they fucking didi a  great job on delivery---- and thew only reason why it was delivered right is because of the cast.

Benny De Toro- #3 ranked Actor of 2008 (behind Rourke, Penn) for his role in Che.
A beautiful female - I do not know her name, and will not look it up because I will get jealous if it says who she is dating.
Anthony Hopkins:  One of the greatest actors to have ever lived - top 5.
Hugo Weaving:  i hate for him in stealing Frank Welker role as Megatron, but whatevers.
