(For those who don’t know, Solomon Kane is a character created by Robert Howard, same guy who created Conan. Kane is a Pilgrim who hunts down werewolves, vampires and such. He’s not as well known as his other characters. I can imagine some people saying, “Look! They made a sequel to Van Helsing!” )
Actually, there IS a movie about Van Damme (No, not starring him, ABOUT him!) And it’s a comedy! Following on Arnold’s action-to-comedy star steps, eh, Jean Claud? But then so is The Rock apparently (how’d they convince him to do “Tooth Fairy?”) :thud:
On other movie news, the Green Lantern movie is coming along nicely; the hero, his love interest and one of the villains have already been casted, and there’s some conceptual art making the rounds on the Net. Check it out here:
Oh yeah, definitely. But that’s not the problem. The thing is, fans want the movie versions to be 100% like the comics, but that won’t work because the vast majority of the audience knows nothing about them nor would be interested in fantasies THAT wild. A good superhero movie must pick the best parts of the source material and present them in a way most of the audience will get. The Dark Knight and Iron Man proved it can be done.
As for Green Lantern, I foresee it as “Top Gun meets Star Wars”. With TRON Special FX.
