They have the new Paul?!

Postby guild navigator » 19 May 2009 19:58

The guy from Twilight?!!! Wtf??
(This is just speculation, but this guy is likely to play the new Paul, he has been in talks with Berg a few times apparently..That means teenage girls will be flocking to see it...?)

What the fuck does, "...from blood sucker to alien mean"? I guess Paul's an alien now.

"....the actor met with director Peter Berg, who is set to direct a big screen adaptation of the sci-fi thriller "Dune," sparking rumors that R-Patz is going from bloodsucker to alien!"

Idiotic unknowing reporters who have no idea what Dune is, Sci-fi thriller? what is it a Mickey fucking Spillane adventure now?? how about sci-fi EPIC!!

I offer a big "FUCK NO" on Mr. Twilight heart-throb, doesnt have the look.

Blame that on KJA, how the story of Dune became a cheap Star Wars wanna be...

Hey, we have a full circle now : From SW imitating Dune to whatever we have now... :snooty:

Hey, welcome to last week's news!

viewtopic.php?p=48893#p48893

The real new buzz seems to be that Universal has hired Berg to do the movie of Battleship (yes, as in the "You sank my _____!" board game). So he might have been meating with Pattyson about a naval role. Or roll. Something with lots of seamen in it?

Which begs the question, when the fuck is Berg going to be doing the Dune movie?
I have heard of only one mistake that doesn’t have an explanation for a careful reader...with an open mind. (And, no, I’m not going to tell you what it is!) —KJA

I don't like every writer's style; for instance, I have never been able to get through Ursula LeGuin, China Mieville, or Iain Banks, all of whom are critical darlings. —KJA

I...had written a bunch of Star Wars and X-Files books...that proved not just that I'm a hack, but that I could write in somebody else's universe... —KJA

We've been over this :)

So Dune is a "thriller" now is it? Let's see:

From Arrakis With Love
The Manchurian Haderach
Patriot Dunes
The Dune Identity


NOW I understand what Berg meant when he said; "a more muscular time to be had." Triple H better be in the cast somewhere :)

Never do that, especially around here the way some of us get off topic. :whistle: You just might miss some interesting...posts.

I read every post, whether I'm interested in the topic or not.

And if I don't have anything constructive to add, I try not to reply. ;)

At least we don't have two or three casting threads. Like DN. :roll:

But we DO have two Religion topics. :roll:

As for casting Paul...

They should get the guy playing Kevin Bacon's role in the remake of Footloose!. That'd get the teenage girls in a seat to see Dune.

Yes, you read that right, Paramount is remaking it.

:puke:

http://movies.yahoo.com/feature/us-maga ... loose.html

I really don't know anything about the actor, nor have I ever watched "Gossip Girl" (not that I would admit it, even if I did) but he looks like he could pull of the 15 to 18-year-old transition.

He's got the hawk-nose and oval face too.

Sheesh ... can't they do anything besides remakes and reboots these days? :roll:

I recognize the face, because one of my satellite channels is pushing "Gossip Girl" now. (No, I haven't. If I ever get that desperate for something to watch, I'll sit in front of a mirror and chew off my own right nut.)(And yes, surprisingly, I am that limber.)(And no, I'm not going to tell you how I discovered that fact.)

Speaking of religion :P , battle-axe Becky "My crotch is a DMZ since the D&C and I'm still more man than any of you!" Anderson was ranting this morning on CNNj about some 13-year-old kid with lymphoma whose mother has absconded (I love that word) with him to avoid court-ordered chemotherapy treatments; family belongs to some syncretic Roman Catholic/Native American group (read: cult) that only believes in natural healing. Big hooplalalah, "the State shouldn't have the right!", blah blah blah.

I watched it and thought, fuck the stupid parents, let them do what they want. When the kid dies, it's their fault and they have to live with it. The State and courts should mind their own damned business on this one. One less wingnut to grow up and ... do wingnut shit. :D
