Lots of little tidbits about Heroes, this week, and we haven’t even gotten to ComicCon, yet.
- Zachary Quinto as Spock? Leonard Nimoy, watch your back!
- Check out The Golden Compass posters! Daniel Craig looks bizarrely Hobbit-like.
- Tron is 25? Hehe, Tron.
- Spider-Man movies look to keep on truckin’.
- Kevin Spacey to return as Lex Luthor. I still haven’t seen the first one. Will it ever come to HBO?
- Wolverine? Maybe.
In an otherwise-pedestrian blog bemoaning Sean Connery’s choice to not take the role of Jones Sr. for another spin, The Guardian’s James Anthony claims the movie’s working title is Indiana Jones and the City of the Gods. Could it be? Well, it’s not the first time we’ve heard this one.
In other Indy rumors, who could John Hurt be playing?
Well, we still haven’t seen the footage they were taping at the Rose Parade… If there’s any truth to this, I wonder if it has anything to do with all that new and fantastic Hyperspace stuff we haven’t heard of yet?
A Darth Vader/Anakin Skywalker book by… R.L. Stine? R.L. Stine, the Dean Koontz of 90’s teeny-bopper horror? Sorry, Rebelscum, I don’t care what the Insider said – this can not be for real.
The screenwriter talked to MTV about his nixxed Indy IV script. But this also lead me to the rumors about Darabont’s script having the archaeologist dealing with aliens. As fantastic as a decent Indiana Jones/X-Files crossover maybe/sorta/kinda could be, that’s one thing that’s probably best left to fanfic… Which may indeed be where the rumor originated. Fandom, you so crazy. Never change.
AICN has a tidbit regarding the upcoming Clone Wars 3-D show from musician Eric Riegler:
The EmCee introduced Eric, and said Eric had just finished recording some music for the Star Wars TV Series. I followed up with Eric during the intermission, and he told me the following: Yes, he did in fact record music for the series. Each of the planets has its own theme, and the one he was brought in to develop music for was patterned after Bulgaria. So, his music was patterned after an instrument (I think he called it a gaeda (spelling?), a bagpipe-like instrument played there), although he performed his music on the Irish Pipes. He said it looked amazing, and Lucas had done an incredible job of the look/feel of at least what he saw.
He also said he was told the series/his episode would be airing Summer, 2008.
Gillian Anderson says to Empire: “They’re starting to talk about doing a feature again. Every year or two they talk about it again, but it seems like it might be for real this time. Somehow it seems like somebody’s really serious about it. I know that Chris’ lawsuit with Fox is over, so maybe now it can be done.”
I want to believe (especially since she talks about it being more like a stand-alone episode where, in retrospect, the series was often strongest) but is it too little, too late? Or, with 80’s nostalgia is so hot right now, is it too soon to revisit the 90’s?
