... and Aquaman... go talk to some fish or something.

Vince Chase was a better choice for the role, anyway.

I dunno, Aquaman from the JLU cartoon was pretty bad-arsed. I'd see a movie version of him.
 
2012-04-20 12:24:30 PM
In completely unrelated news, I made the most bad-ass Aquaman picture in Draw Something, but my idiot friend didn't get it because she doesn't get into superheroes.
 
2012-04-20 12:26:16 PM
LOL I just saw Ol' Lane Meyer at C2E2. He doesnt mind nerds shelling out 40 bucks for his autograph but he minds them spending 10 bucks to see movies that fufill their nerdly fantasies?? Eff you Cusack, you were better off dead.
 
2012-04-20 12:26:40 PM
Is Mr. Cusack new to Hollywood? Hasn't he realized by now that latching onto a trend and riding it to death is all Hollywood does?

Don't worry, John. Eventually, this generation's Batman and Robin will come along, and then the studios will move on to exploiting something else to death. Probably '80s toys, since that trend seems to be growing.

FTA: "Usually they want you to make a movie for five or six million dollars, or they want to make it for two hundred million and put on the tights and capes and stuff."

Translation: "Nobody wants me for a big budget movie, and I refuse to lower my salary for a low budget film"

That game goes back a lot further then the 80's. The current iteration that most people are familiar with is from the 60's.

This from the man that starred in Con Air and 2012? Yeah, so many great stories out there being passed over so more superhero movies can be made. I guess the lack of high quality scripts has also forced him to star in some shiatty knock-off of Sherlock Holmes as well. Such a great actor, and those pesky Marvel films are forcing him to choose roles that are beneath his amazing talent. What a sanctimonious, whiny biatch.
 
2012-04-20 12:41:06 PM
Another reason why Marvel>DC.
Sub-Mariner= super cool
Aquaman= super tool

Hollywood has always done remakes and reboots. Hell, the "Maltese Falcon" that we all know that starred Bogart was a remake of a ten year old movie of the same name, which itself was made from a book.

/Don't get me started about Shakesphere!
//Henry II, Richard V... nothing but sequels!

Serial: "Usually they want you to make a movie for five or six million dollars, or they want to make it for two hundred million and put on the tights and capes and stuff."


If Only there was someone with more than 5 million bucks, but less than 100 million bucks, who knew how to make movies and had a lot of friends and connections in Hollywood. Put on your big boy pants and be the producer Mr Cusack. Oh, not with your money? Maybe that's your answer for why there aren't more films in that 'space' as you say...

He'll be doing celebratory shots about 22 minutes from now when it turns out he DID get the role.

Aquaman the Rodney Dangerfield of comics. I get no respect.
 
2012-04-20 12:56:34 PM
Now, why would anyone want to make a motion picture of the world's most lamest DC super-hero? He's right to turn down that role. I don't blame him.

Next thing you know we'll get a movie about those pathetic "Wonder-Twins" and that stupid Monkey, Gleek...

Spending your OWN money on expensive things no one else wants isn't the Hollywood Liberal way.

I can't wait until they make a Marylin Manson movie where he has to frantically and sternly run around and solve the Columbine massacre before it happens.

JoePiscopoJr.: LOL I just saw Ol' Lane Meyer at C2E2. He doesnt mind nerds shelling out 40 bucks for his autograph but he minds them spending 10 bucks to see movies that fufill their nerdly fantasies?? Eff you Cusack, you were better off dead.


Normally, I think people who harrass celebrities IRL are retards, but if I ever run into him, I'm soooooooo shouting "two dollars!!!" at him repeatedly. By all accounts, the guy is a dick. Apart from being an asshole in general, he screamed at Better Off Director, Steve Holland, for ruining his career when he saw the finished cut. They were still in the middle of shooting One Crazy Summer. He refused to speak to him for the remainder of the shoot.

Also, he's one of those Hollywood assholes that walks into a store, picks out something he wants, and is shocked -shocked- when he gets asked to pay for it.

We once saw Ned Beatty at Magic Mountain. I'm not proud of what ensued after that.
