The Weekly Ketchup: Keith Richards's "Pirates of the Caribbean" Antics, Hermione's "Harry Potter" Doubts, Stallone Speculation, And More!

by | September 29, 2006 | Comments

In this week’s Ketchup, Keith Richards is living up to everyone’s expectations on the set of the third "Pirates" installment, Emma Watson is experiencing growing pains with "Harry Potter," and the Nolan brothers talk about "The Dark Knight."

Also, a full slate of big-name sequels is on the way next summer, and the rumors of Sylvester Stallone in "Predator 3" couldn’t possibly be true (could they?). Read on for more.

This week’s Most Popular News:

Keith Richards is "So Drunk" on the "Pirates 3" Set
"Hey guess what? Keith Richards likes to get drunk — and he’s certainly not about to let a cameo role in "Pirates of the Caribben: At Worlds End" stand in the way of a good time.

Emma Watson’s Getting a Little Tired of Playing With "Harry Potter"

In a move that could be best described as "contract negotiation hardball," young actress Emma Watson just dropped a bomb on the producers of the "Harry Potter" series. Seems the actress is not yet signed for the final pair of Potter flicks, and she’s hinting that she might not even want the gig anymore.

The Nolan Brothers Discuss "The Dark Knight"

"Spidey 3," "Shrek 3," and "Pirates 3" — Get Ready for Summer ’07

"The article we’re about to read is about eight days old, but it seems like a rather fun topic of discussion, so let’s do it anyway. As far as Summer ’07 is concerned, what’s your pick: "Spider-Man 3," "Shrek the Third," or "Pirates of the Caribbean: At Worlds End"?

Stallone to Star in "Predator 3"?

It’s a piece of casting gossip that’s almost certainly untrue, but it’s a fun one anyway, so let’s get to it: Someone thinks that Sylvester Stallone could be lined up to star in the second sequel to "Predator."


You never know.
