In this week’s Ketchup, as if the who-will-portray-Joker rumors weren’t enough, the who-will-portray-Two-Face conversation is in full swing. Also, Peter Jackson has now gone on record regarding his possible participation in "The Hobbit."
Feeding our hunger for more annoying rumors, Brad Pitt‘s name is being floated around for "Mission: Impossible 4," Steven Spielberg might helm a fourth version of "Jurassic Park," and we get to look at what "Iron Man" won’t look like (oh joy!). Read on for more.
This Week’s Most Popular News:
Guy Pearce vs. Liev Schreiber for "The Dark Knight"?
Now that we know who’s playing The Joker in "The Dark Knight" (it’s Heath Ledger), all the Batfan speculation is now pointed towards the character of Harvey "Two Face" Dent. Previous buzz indicated that Liev Schreiber was "the guy," but now there’s a new name invovled: Christopher Nolan’s old pal Guy Pearce.
Peter Jackson Discussing "The Hobbit"!!
And by "discussing" I mean "talking to AICN’s ‘Quint’ about the possibility of MGM mounting a pair of Hobbit films," as was mentioned in an article earlier this week. Again: There is nothing to indicate that Peter Jackson is (or will be) connected to a "Hobbit" movie; only that MGM has announced some tentative plans … and that Pete shared a conversation about those plans.
Brad Pitt as Ethan Hunt?
Well, we all know that Paramount’s not really interested in the Tom Cruise business anymore, but JoBlo’s sharing a piece of gossip from across the pond that might not be true — but it is kinda fun. Unsubstantiated buzz indicates that Paramount wants none other than Brad Pitt to step into the lead for "Mission: Impossible 4."
Will Spielberg Return to Helm "Jurassic Park 4"?
Steven Spielberg has said several very flattering things about the work Joe Johnston did on "Jurassic Park 3," but recent chit-chat seems to indicate that S.S. might be interested in stepping back into the director’s chair (if and when) "JP4" starts moving forward.
Wanna See What "Iron Man" WON’T Look Like?
It’s probably way too early to see any actual production art for Jon Favreau’s "Iron Man" adaptation, but that hasn’t stopped a few (talented) fans from putting together some "unapproved" mock-ups of the character.
