Which project sounds most promising?

Of these four offbeat star vehicles reportedly in the works, which would you most like to see?

A. George Clooney in a remake of Pet Sematary

B. Eddie Griffin in an NBC sitcom based on his own life as a dad to multiple children by different women, a premise he calls a ”f—ed up Cosby Show

C. Bill Pullman (click the link marked ”july twenty nine”) playing mindbending sci-fi author Philip K. Dick in the indie drama Panasonic

D. Jackie Chan and Jet Li in a Hollywood-financed action comedy

(See Gary’s pick is after the jump…)

Regarding A., I know Clooney is a fan of cheesy horror (From Dusk TillDawn, Return of the Killer Tomatoes), but this story sounds fishy. B.doesn’t sound too different from Will Smith’s All of Us, but NBC is on something of a comedy roll lately with My Name Is Earl and The Office, so maybe they can elevate this premise into something unique as well. I enjoy Bill Pullman’s work in oddball roles (Zero Effect, Lost Highway),but I don’t see how C.’s story about Dick’s life could be morefascinating than his fiction (which has been made into such films as A Scanner Darkly and Blade Runner).So that leaves D., and while both Chan and Li are getting long in thetooth, it’s amazing that these two Hong Kong giants have never workedtogether, so I’m excited to see whatever they do.

    I’d love to see A if it’s real, but I agree that that one’s questionable. So yeah, Jet Li and Jackie Chan would definitely be cool, especially if the latter can get the former to loosen up a bit and look like he’s having some fun.

    Jet Li and Jackie Chan are in a movie together?! Yipeeee! I just hope the two play rivals and not partners because I don’t think it would be a good movie if they did. And plus who don’t want to see Jet Li whoop Jackie Chan’s A$$?. (Trust me, Jet Li will totally win.)

    A: Eh, it could be decent.
    B: Thewre’s a lack of good black comedies on the air recently, and since Bernie Mac aired its last season, we need one besides Everybody Hates Chris. And Girlfriends I suppose…
    C: I’m indifferent. No interest, but no disgust either
    D: Sounds awesome, though it would suck for Jackie Chan, considering he’s past his prime. Jet Li still has some fight left in him.

    I’ve got to say, if you wonder how Philip K. Dick’s life can be more fascinating than his fiction, you should pick up the nonfiction collection “The Shifting Realities of PKD”…maybe not MORE fascinating, but in many ways, equally so. I just hope they do him justice…this could be really cool…

    Read Valis, look into how it was based on events in his own life, and tell me how there’s nothing fascinating about a very smart, creative man suddenly believing that God was talking to him through a pink laser.
    Heck, if Adaptation can make writing a movie that much fun to watch it can’t be that hard making Dick’s quasi-religious breakdown compelling watching.

    I think Eddie Griffin is hysterical. Undercover Brother cracks me up every time I watch it. I wish he’d make a sequel! I’d watch his sitcom.

    JACKIE CHAN AND JET LI TOGETHER? DOOOD! I really hope Sammo Hung, Chuck Norris and Tony from that kickboxing movie get some cameo roles, then that will go down as the baddest azzed and coolest KUNG FU movie ever! This totally makes my day!
    Aww yeah! I’ve heard fans of these guys argue day and night about who’s better. Now they’ll be either duking it out or teaming up! Either way, my adrenaline is up to 11 because of this announcement. SHAKE AND BAKE!

    Li and Chan makes perfect sense. Pet Semetary was a B-O-M-B at the box office as was its sequel so it would not make any sense for Clooney to waste his time on that.

  • EP Sato

    Lorenzo, as a Jackie fan I gotta part company with you. As amazing as Jet Li’s wu shu is (he does an amazing tai chi and a fantastic eagle claw), nothing is cooler than drunken kung fu. The drunken style is one of the most impossible kung fu styles to learn, as you must do all these complicated forms while wasted off your keister.
    But that’s just one fan’s opinion. Jet li’s “Fong Sai Yuk II” is probably the most visually impressive martial arts movie, and Crouching Tiger totally ripped off all the goodies from the Jet Li flicks.
    One last thing. SHAKE AND BAKE!

  • Maeve

    I’m really confused as to why they would remake Pet Sematary in the first place, as it’s not that old and a remake is nowhere close to being necessary. Besides, I’m really not interested in seeing a toddler get killed by a truck for the second time. And doesn’t Clooney have anything better to do than this movie?
    Is this really true?

    Is Stepehen King involved with this? I love Clooney, but I don’t know. Would see it though simply because I love the story.
