elvindeath: Sure - the people who cast the Avengers so brilliantly are going to go with a douchey C-List teen actor to play one of the most iconic characters of all time, almost instantly damming their 4 billion dollar deal to utter ruin. Sorry ... not buying it. I think someone is passing around a story they read on The Onion.


Well its just a bookie saying that, I didn't know you could even bet on shiat like that in England, strange place....

They would never cast him, simply because its stupid and he can't farking act at all, my bet is Ryan Reynolds as Han, some other unknown or maybe one of those kids from the twilight series as Luke, and khloe kardasian as chewbacca.

Star Wars farking sucks to begin with so it makes perfect sense to cast that anemic idiot.

You farking idiots had so much hope that this deal was going to be a good thing. CHOKE ON YOUR TEARS AND DIE!!!!!

/i had no hope, I never had hope.

Seriously, who pissed in your cereal this morning? Go find something better to do with your lives

That's what I've been telling you whinny, sniveling star wars nerds for years.

I'm not really a Star Wars nerd, just trying to understand why something so unimportant makes you so mad

/or why you waste this much time trolling

Why are you getting so bent out of shape about what I post? And it doesn't make me mad, it makes me laugh.

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Sam Jackson as a Jedi?


Hey now, what was wrong with Samuel L. Jackson as Jedi?
 
2012-11-04 02:36:24 PM
Hey guys, remember how when The Dark Knight came out, like how literally the next day the internet exploded with "totally official, no joke! Rumors" about how Johnny Depp and Phillip Seymour Hoffman were gonna be the Riddler and the Penguin in the third Nolan Batman movie? That totally happened, right?

Dow Jones and the Temple of Doom: Honestly, you can't fark up Star Wars any more than the prequels did. Hayden Christiansen as Darth Vader? Sam Jackson as a Jedi? The whole thing was like a long Mad TV parody.


I like motherfarkin Samuel L. Jackson as much as the next guy, but someone like Lawrence Fishburne would've been a much better choice
 
2012-11-04 02:38:34 PM
In all seriousness, casting a generic pretty-boy with no real acting chops in the part would actually make it a better match for the first trilogy, not a worse one. Luke's just the blank placeholder for audience relatability a la Bella Swan, all the actual interesting characters were supporting actors, under seven inches of makeup, welded into a metal can -- pick two.

In fact, probably the main reason the prequels didn't work was that they forgot that Vader was one of those awesome supporting characters welded in a tin can, and instead cast his character with an audience placeholder instead because he was trying to remake the original stories rather than do an actual prequel.

Teufelaffe: so that already makes the new movie(s) better than Episodes 1-3.


Which means that they could still potentially be worse than being stabbed in the neck with a pencil and bleeding to death.

Flint Ironstag:

Bookies like taking money from idiots who place bets on actors before a script has even been written.


And they are about to make a farking killing with every body wanting to get the next scoop for their blogs.

"Hey guys, get this. An anonymous source told me that Disney is casting Tom Brady as a Sith Lord and the whole movie will begin at the end and work backwards. You heard it here first."

ThatBillmanGuy: Hey guys, remember how when The Dark Knight came out, like how literally the next day the internet exploded with "totally official, no joke! Rumors" about how Johnny Depp and Phillip Seymour Hoffman were gonna be the Riddler and the Penguin in the third Nolan Batman movie? That totally happened, right?


Or when Batman was going to die halfway through and the second half of the movie was going to be JGL as Nightwing? Yep.

Samuel L Jackson could have been an awesome Jedi had he been given anything decent to do. Episode 1 he was out preformed by a muppet. Episodes two and three he only had one fight scene per movie and the rest of the time he was scene sitting down not saying a whole lot. Hell, Boba Fett did more in Episode 2 than Jackson did in all three movies.

derpy: This line gave me hives:

The 25-year-old self-confessed Star Wars addict previously said he'd love to don his best 'I've lost my arm' face and battle Darth Vader,

Vader's dead, you Star Wars addict, you.



Not if they reboot it. This is Disney we're talking about. We're going to get Selina Gomez as Princess Leia, Shia LeBeef as Han Solo, Zack Galickafarkness as Chewbacca, Justin Bieber as Lando Calrissian?

This whole thing just gets funnier with each greenlight.
 
2012-11-04 02:57:06 PM
But he won't be alone in the battle, with Jamie Bell, Shia Leboeuf and Ryan Reynolds all in line.

Meanwhile, Ryan is also the favourite to play Han Solo while Emma Stone is top choice for Princess Leia.

They're not going to do a reboot. They could literally adapt any space opera, throw in some lightsabers and a cameo from Yoda or two and make billions. It's not worth losing the marketability of a box set of three trilogies.

thornhill: And after "John Carter" -- Taylor who? -- I expect Disney to be a lot more careful about the casting.


John Carter wasn't a bad movie, IMHO. I liked it. It wouldn't surprise me if it develops a following in the future....

/ horrible marketing by Disney, however

Skip a generation. Bring back Carrie Fisher, Mark Hamill, Billy Dee Williams and Harrison Ford to appear as their original characters, but with Luke as now a wise, older jedi, Han and Lando as retired generals and Leia as senior politician (like Hilary Clinton). Bring in new characters, perhaps their kids or padawans. So, those original characters wouldn't do much action stuff, but just be characters in the story (like Alec Guinness was as Obi-Wan).

And put John Lasseter in charge of it all, hire Joe Cornish and Edgar Wright to write it. Get Garth Jennings to direct it. And do as little as you have to in terms of consulting George Lucas.

2012-11-04 03:38:12 PM
What's really going to happen is Star Cars...a remake of all 6 movies with all of the characters as cars. It will feature an all-star voice cast:

Owen Wilson as Luke
Selena Gomez as Leia
Patton Oswalt as Han Solo
Joan Rivers as Chewbacca
Chris Rock as Lando
Chuck Norris as Darth Vader
Betty White as The Emperor
Christian Bale as C3P0
Larry the Cable Guy as R2D2
with special appearances of Sir Sean Connery as Jabba and Sir Ian McKellan as Salacious Crumb

Just because The Walt Disney Corp bought LucasFilm doesn't mean the movies are now going to be Disney (kids stuff) like. The Disney kids is just a portion of their corporation.

ABC for example.

You know what else? Touchstone. I bet you've watched a lot of good and adult movies made by that studio.

And you know what else? Miramax (well, used to). DISNEY DISTRIBUTED farkING PULP FICTION.

Wait, wasn't Luke kind of a douchey brat in Star Wars? Sounds like perfect casting to me.

Now, if he had been cast as Han, that'd be another story.
 
2012-11-04 04:35:11 PM
Okay, I want everyone to line up. Anyone who believes this story will step forward. Someone will be around shortly to kick you in the nuts as hard as humanly possible as punishment for being so goddamned stupid.

Red Flag 1: story is from a gossip site that is the modern equivalent of the National Inquirer.
Red Flag 2: story is unsourced. The best you get is "oddsmakers." Which ones? Vegas? Reno? Larry in mail room?
Red Flag 3: The deal won't be finalized until the end of the year. They only have an outline. They've already said that they don't have a screenwriter or director yet. Nothing, absolutely nothing, is in place to even begin casting yet.

The article is based on pure speculation an deserves, at best, to be ignored.

This. Yoda already warned "look as good you will not"; they might as well roll with it. It's not like they haven't had older mentors to younger heroes before, even going across generations when necessary. Why not continue the theme?

ReBooting episode 4 would almost Be worth it just see the nerd rage. They just spent 4B on this. They're going to make it as universally appealing as they can well making sure they can sell shiatloads of toys. Angry 40 year olds aren't going to like the movies. They may make lower risk properties, like a TV series or two that are targeted towards and older crowd however the movies are likely to dissapoint. i
