The former topic lasted over a full year! So now let's begin again with some G.I. Joe news:
These are from G.I. Joe: The Rise of Cobra

The Japanese animation studio Sunrise has officially announced the plans for a live-action film adaptation of its Cowboy Bebop science-fiction anime franchise. The American film studio Twentieth Century Fox, the production company 3 Arts Entertainment, and Sunrise itself are collaborating on the project. Keanu Reeves (The Matrix, A Scanner Darkly, Johnny Mnemonic) is slated to star. Joshua Long is acting as a production supervisor, and Erwin Stoff, a film producer who worked closely with Reeves on The Matrix and A Scanner Darkly, is also attached. The associate producers are Sunrise President Kenji Uchida, the original Cowboy Bebop director Shinichiro Watanabe, and the original series script supervisor Keiko Nobumoto. The Sunrise studio itself and Masahiko Minami (former Sunrise producer and BONES studio co-founder) are both acting as production consultants.

Stoff first revealed the existence of the proposed project last July to the IFMagazine.com entertainment website after the parties "just signed it the other day." Reeves confirmed the plans and his intentions to play the lead role with MTV Movies Blog last month. He also indicated that the preliminary story outline partly draws inspiration from the "Red Eye" storyline from the first episode of the animated series. Reeves and Watanabe had previously worked together on the "Kid's Story" segment of The Animatrix animated video anthology.

You know... Keanu Reeves would make a good Kaneda. Or does he mean he will be playing Tetsuo? Or are there changes from such in the anime and manga I'm not aware of? (I've only ever seen the movie. ;x: )

Yeah, Keanu is on the Cowboy Bebop movie project. Leo Dicaprio is producing the Akira movie, and already said that he is a fan of the source material and will not be casting himself in it (At least not in a lead role).

Ha ha. I mixed info up. That's sweet.

Well, regardless... They should take Keanu out of acting in the lead of Cowboy Bebop, and put him in the lead of Akira. He can't play Spike. Spike has too much emotion for Keanu to portray.

Well, it depends, Spike spends a lot of time emotionally dead.

Yeah, but those exciting moments... I dunno if Keanu can pull that off. Maybe if he was back in Ted Theodore Logan days...

Well, that's the thing, he is Ted. It's why the best delivered line in the Matrix was "Whoa."

He actually acted back in those days. ::\ Or at least played himself well enough to make it appear as acting. :laughing::;: Just give him some more intelligent stuff to say and you have your Spike.


... j/k :P

The Red Dwarf crew will come back to Earth when the show returns this Easter, 21 years since the science fiction series first blasted off.

For eight series totalling 52 episodes, Dave Lister wanted to return to his home planet. Now, at last, he has - in Red Dwarf: Back To Earth.

Written and directed by Red Dwarf co-creator Doug Naylor, the new show reunites Chris Barrie as Rimmer, Craig Charles as Lister, Danny John-Jules as Cat and Robert Llewellyn as Kryten.

The two-part series Red Dwarf: Back To Earth, will kick start a Red Dwarf Easter weekend from Good Friday on TV channel Dave.

This will be followed by Red Dwarf: Unplugged, a "no holds barred" episode with no sets, no effects - and no autocue.

The weekend will climax with Red Dwarf: The Making Of Back To Earth, a behind-the-scenes special from the new production.

Dave will reveal news snippets from the production at joindave.co.uk.

Red Dwarf is Dave's biggest commission yet and its first foray into scripted comedy.

New G.I. Joe posters!

Fans have been wondering if they went with "Ripcord" (The original Ripcord was caucasian) because they thought "Stalker" wouldn't exactly be a good name for a hero. Be interesting if he filled the "Stalker" role and personality in the movie; Stalker in the original comics was a good mix of badass and take-charge in crisis situations, and comic relief through witty dialogue. So I don't think getting someone who's usually in comic roles to play a key Joe is necessarily a bad thing.

Fans who go "OH noes Joe must be serious111" tend to forget, maybe, that the original comic was permeated with wisecracks and wit. Of course, you got the impression they were cracking jokes either because they were THAT good, or to keep from going insane from the danger, or probably both. But I've gotten plenty of good laughs out of Hama's clever, dry sense of humor.

EFFIN A YUSSS!!!!!!!!!! :happy4: :happy4: :happy4: :happy4: :happy4: :happy4: :happy4: :happy4:


NO OTHER NEWS IS ACCEPTED FOR SEVERAL DAYS NOW >:O











In all sincerity: I have no control over such, but... You get how excited I am. I have been waiting for this for a VERY long, long, long, long, long time... And the shock comes as they stated the sequel/finish would never be made. O_o: I know they had it in the works for a very long time, but... Yeah. It was predicted to never come, and, now... There... It is... *single tear of joy* :happy4:

Definitely good news! I have yet to see past the first two seasons (I think) but I enjoyed it greatly.

Anyhoo, since this is technically an addendum to old news: Storm Shadow movie poster: http://www.hisstank.com/gi-joe-news/att ... entid=3243
