"Top B-movie directing talent Albert Pyun (‘Nemesis’, ‘Cyborg’, ‘Kickboxer 2′) is developing what could be his final movie in ‘Napoleon’.
The 61 year old Hawaiian, who unfortunately suffers from MS, has completed his script about the historic French military leader and Emperor, Napoleon Bonaparte and hopes he can lure his ‘Cyborg’ star Jean Claude Van Damme to take the lead role. Leading France into battles including the Napoleonic Wars and Peninsular War, he was defeated, after his exile to an Italian island, in the Battle of Waterloo.
At present, it’s unknown the type of budget Pyun is aiming for, but it’s well known he is a master of squeezing every last cent out of what he has available to him and his team and making his films look fifty times as much as what he originally had. It’d be a great move for Van Damme, who could certainly pull off such a role and for Pyun, if it is to be his last movie, the modern day Ed Wood, will go out in style."
For now this is just a rumour but it's definitely something I'd like to see. Maybe in this timeline Napoleon won the battle of Waterloo after delivering a deadly spin kick to the Duke Of Wellington.
"What about me? I have come all the way for a job interview with you," he told director Shankar at a glitzy audio launch function of Vikram starrer Tamil movie "I" which is slated for release soon.
...The Hollywood actor also invited Shankar in making Conan the King. "How about that..How about [making] King Conan?" he asked Shankar. Smiling, Shankar nodded his head and gave him a thumbs-up amid thunderous applause."
"We’re thinking, you know, much bigger than just the third movie," he said. "We’re thinking, ‘How can we make Ghostbusters last another 20 years?'"
Dan was open to the idea of setting a future 'Ghostbusters' tale in London, agreeing, "There are so many great locations here, and in fact true spirits here that are living right now amongst us."
Asked which British actor he'd like to see picking up the Ghostbusting baton, Dan was quick to name action-man Jason Statham, saying, "He's a lot of fun."
Next up we have the cover art for Steven Seagal's Gutshot Straight (out on DVD Dec 2), thanks to our friends at City On Fire
"Steven Seagal is back in Gutshot Straight, a crime thriller directed by Justin Steele (Death and Cremation). Don’t let the misleading poster fool you: Seagal is only a co-star of an entourage cast that includes George Eads (CSI: Crime Scene Investigation), AnnaLynne McCord (Scorned), Stephen Lang (In the Blood), Ted Levine (A Single Shot), Vinnie Jones (Midnight Meat Train) and Tia Carrere (Showdown in Little Tokyo).
Also, if you’re expecting Seagal to snap necks and break bones, you might be setting yourself up for disappointment. Judging from the trailer, Seagal’s role looks like it’s dialogue-based. Don’t say we didn’t warn you."
