The first thing I thought when I saw the link to an article announcing Elijah Wood joining the cast of a Vin Diesel movie? "I need to go look for my link to that RPS fic of "Elijah/Crewman Gorgeous" (the latter of which is based on Vin Diesel in appearance)!

See? Hopeless. :D

But the movie sounds potentially interesting, and with Vin and Elijah in it, it's definitely a must-see for me. Doubt it will be at the cinema, though by the time it's out we might be able to get out sans daughter a bit more regularly. We just got to see Guardians of the Galaxy, which is the first time since The Hobbit: The Desolation of Smaug that we made it to the cinema!

Ugh, need to post a proper update soon... and pictures, they're way overdue!

TV Watch: McKellen Likes ‘Loose Women’... and gives a hint as to when filming on The Hobbit might begin.

Concept Artist Wayne Barlowe Talks Hobbit

Poolburn Reservoir Prepping for The Hobbit? - Now I'm thinking this could just as well have to do with the next Chronicles of Riddick film, because Vin Diesel posted some pictures on his official Facebook from the recent NZ location scouting trip that looked a lot like Poolburn to me!

Diesel hopes 2009 will also bring the third film in "The Chronicles of Riddick" trilogy.

"David Twohy is writing 'Dark Athena' as we speak," says the actor. "The videogame is continuing full force. It's fun....and I'm very excited about what David is doing."


Vin Diesel Promises Two More Riddick Sequels
Published by Shawn Adler on Monday, August 25, 2008 at 3:18 pm.
Four years after his character Richard B. Riddick last graced the silver screen, and some years after telling reporters that there would be another Riddick film in his future, Vin Diesel told MTV News that he no longer thinks there will one day be a Riddick sequel.

He now thinks there will be two.

ODQ says: WTF Shawn, there was ALWAYS talk of two sequels! *rolls eyes*

I couldn't see how they'd do it next year - Vin would be busy with his Hannibal project? But maybe they could at least get pre-production started... omg they better bring Vaako back and give him a substantial role! They should take some inspiration from certain fan fic out there, hee hee... ;)

ETA: From David Twohy's blog:


Now on to ALIEN VERSUS PREDATOR. Apparently there’s a petition floating around the internet that seeks to draft me as director of the next installment of the series. (It seems my old ALIEN 3 script figures into this master plan, too, in ways that aren’t entirely clear to me.) My reaction is “Hmm.” Flattering? Sure. Realistic? Not so much. See, if I’m going to spend a year of my life (and more if I write it) on the third installment of a science-fiction series, well, why wouldn’t I just do the third installment of my own science-fiction series?

Catch my drift?

*crosses everything crossable*
ourdramaqueen: (chronicles of riddick looking up)
omg that would be great... I hadn't read the transcript of the latest chat of TheOneRing.net’s Larry Curtis with Sohaib on ‘Fictional Frontiers with Sohaib,’ on WNJC 1360 AM, Philadelphia, but now found a link to it at vindiesel.hu. :D I totally agree with Larry and Sohaib - Vin just has the perfect kind of voice for a dragon and would be fantastic for Smaug! And yes, just listen to Vin's voiceover at the beginning of Pitch Black if you're doubtful!


Relevant excerpt:

When I was in San Diego, we had a couple of minutes left, I know there was a segment during the Panel about speculation as far as the cast of certain characters – the casting of certain characters of the films – Are we getting any other rumours about Smaug? It’s funny, I was there (SDCC), Initially, I think one of the first people mentioned was Vin Diesel for Smaug, and I actually liked the idea of Vin Diesel as Smaug – maybe I was actually a minority, but there were rounds of boo’s – are we hearing anything more about Smaug at all – is there anything you’ve heard – maybe if there’s nothing, you could let our listeners in on other rumours other than Vin Diesel, as far as the character of Smaug is concerned?

I'm listening to music on my Creative Zen player, as I sometimes do during work. Papa Roach's "Getting Away With Murder" (which is featured in the end credits of Pitch Black) was just playing, when out of the blue the thought hit me: I'd LOVE to see Vin play a (hard) rock singer. Can't you just imagine him in tight black leather pants, tight t-shirts and a black leather jacket if anything on top, showing off his gorgeous tattoos, maybe even wearing black eyeliner, all sweaty, rocking and singing his soul out on stage... *fans self*

Why does my brain have to come up with fantasies like this at the most inopportune moments?! Good thing I only have a little more than half an hour's work left...

Yeah, it really was long overdue that I turned this picture into an icon. Having rewatched both Pitch Black and Chronicles of Riddick over the weekend (plus finally Find Me Guilty; not as much with the sexy there but Vin was really funny and cute) and (re-)reading some Riddick fan fic - oh and last but not least a certain Babylon A.D. promo pic - seems to have put me in the right mood to finally do it. I could just as well have made it an "Arm Fetish" icon, 'cause yeah... niiiiiice! I'm not usually into the bodybuilder type, but Vin just has a certain elegance and a surprising agility about him, paired with a certain sense of gentleness. That gravelly voice certainly doesn't hurt either...


I'll shut up now - don't worry, I'm sure I'll calm down again soon. At least until I've seen Babylon A.D.... ;)

Oh yeah...

ourdramaqueen: (chronicles of riddick looking up)
There's one scene in Babylon A.D., Vin Diesel's new film being released end of August, which I'll be sure to enjoy a lot:

Particularly since there will also be some interesting tattoos to admire: )

Oh boy

Another example in horrible dubbing: xXx. I only started watching it because yeah, it's Vin and Danny Trejo has a small role in it. Neither of their dub voices sound anything like the real ones - not anywhere near as low and not the slightest hint of the growly quality that's so characteristic for them both. Ugh.

Oh yeah: Marton Csokas doesn't look too bad with long curly hair, though less slick would look better IMHO. :)

Well, now that Danny's gone again I can spare myself more of this 'horror' and go take that bath... ;)

Final remark in this post: TGIF!!!!

Yup, still around - just been away all day Friday and haven't been feeling communicative over the weekend. I want to do the "List five celebrities you would have sex with without even asking questions." meme but it will take some time until I'm ready because I don't want to go with the obvious ones.

[livejournal.com profile] trailer_spot kindly provided a link to the second trailer for Viggo's Eastern Promises - rightclicksave here. And an "omg yes please" bit of info about a fight scene which takes place in a bathhouse via [livejournal.com profile] lilithlotr, which I'm sure [livejournal.com profile] pattilovesviggo in particular will appreciate: behind this cut for those who are extremely spoiler-shy even if this doesn't give away plot details ) Guh!

Oh yeah, and I found something utterly hilarious - and even if, like me, you haven't seen xXx (starring Vin Diesel) or its sequel, or even if you've never seen/don't like Vin Diesel, you'll end up laughing your ass off: The Worst Movie I Have Ever Seen - The Death Of Xander. People called [livejournal.com profile] ladysunrope might enjoy it in particular, including some of the comments, in light of our recent IM convo... ;D

I'm enjoying Prison Break (first season - I think last week was ep 19 or thereabouts) and lately I happened to zap into House more or less regularly - I really like the cranky old man with the walking cane and his biting sense of humour, hee hee. Thank goodness they're both on TV channels providing the original language as an alternative to the dubbed audio track.

I'm sure there were a dozen other things I wanted to post about, but I can't remember any more. *blows air bubbles, swims another round in her goldfish bowl*

ETA 1 minute later: Remembered two!

1) I'm only a few chapters in but I agree with Xoanon's opinion about "The Frodo Franchise" - very interesting book!

2) Two tidbits about the possible impact that the troubles in the financial market could negatively influence The Hobbit:

Salon.com is pessimistic, but this article from Variety.com paints a brighter picture:

MGM, UA face manic money day
United Artists closes deal with Merrill Lynch


What Wall Street giveth, it also taketh away.

United Artists closed its $500 million deal with Merrill Lynch late Thursday morning in the wake of news that Goldman Sachs had backed away from committing to a $1 billion fund for MGM.

Goldman Sachs was one of five banks considering underwriting the MGM fund. Move was Hollywood's first brush with the widening credit crunch.

However, MGM CEO Harry Sloan said Goldman Sachs' move -- or any delay in the franchise fund -- would not impact the movies it has in the works, including "The Hobbit," a co-production with New Line, or the next installment with the Bond franchise, which it is cofinancing with Sony.

Right. Off to see what I feel like for dinner.

Got the Unrated Director's Cut of The Chronicles of Riddick today. Some nice additional/extended scenes. In regard to Karl Urban's Lord Vaako, there's one in particular featuring him and his wife, Dame Vaako (Thandie Newton), that was extended quite significantly, and oooh am I grateful they did! *fans self* Talk about a fucked-up, kinky relationship! Cut for some more rambling including mild spoilers )

Also, a meme! Gee, why doesn't the result surprise me...? ;)

Yay, I'll go to the Second Level of Hell! )

And now for a hot bath!

I was seriously considering calling in sick this morning - yup, slept badly again last night. Dozed, turned, dozed, turned, dozed... *rolls eyes* Oh yeah, and I kept dreaming snippets of Pitch Black. No, not the "monster in the dark" bits (they weren't that scary), more character interaction stuff. I felt a bit better after I had my tea this morning, though, so decided that I'd go in and I could still go home if I felt too bad. So far it's mostly okay. I guess I'll survive, then. ;)

The reason why I dreamed Pitch Black was that I saw it for the first time last night, finally. I of course have already seen The Chronicles of Riddick several times - yes, because Karl's in it :) - and have been curious to see PB since then. I must say I quite like them both, particularly the sense of humour that runs through. I also like Vin Diesel - not only from what I've seen of him in these two films, but also from some talk show appearance I happened to catch last year. He was promoting that film - sorry, can't remember the title - where he plays a mafia guy who decides to defend himself in court. Vin doesn't seem to take himself too seriously, which I always like in people. :)

*yawn* Right. Work... *sigh*
