probably the longest single evidence of Vin's gamerness (is that a word?) was from an article in GQ magazine from a few years back. He talked at length about playing DnD when he was younger, and about how he admired the creativity of the guys he played with. He also related the story of how a kid recognized him when he went into a gaming store to purchase some gaming supplies for "Research" purposes.

If I can find the article and issue number I'll post them here.
He would be cool in the Rifts movie, but I wouldn't count on it.

Freddy Prinze Jr and Matthew Lillard are also big-time gamers, as are Jack Black and Seth Green.

That would make for one interesting adventuring group... Someone should attempt to get a few of them together for a celebrity gaming event! Maybe Origins or GenCon next year? I could at least see Black and Green getting in on it if they could fit it into the schedule.

Actually, I wouldn't be surprised if Toby McGuire (sp?) was a closet gamer. I know he's a big Star Wars fan and often (i.e. not always) the two coincide. He just seems to fit the psych profile of a typical gamer of that age.

Vin was also on Conan Obrian talking about the forward he wrote and his favorite D&D character

Heck, the character's name was a tattoo on his chest in the movie XXX, I think. I know it was in one of his movies...

Kay I don't really care for Freddy, too prissy, but is Matthew Lillard the guy that played Shaggy in the movies? Cause if so, he's one of my all time favriote low key actors

yeah, the tat was in Triple X, across his abdomen. Matthew Lillard did play Shaggy, and it was on G4 or Tech TV that I saw him talking about his PC, but I can't remember what the actual show was. I do remember thinking that the character leveled AWFULLY slowly. I'll see if I can find out what show it was on. Ta

back again, just FYI
Matt Lillard's commetns on gaming were in an interview with Martin Sargent (before he got his own show) on a show called The Screensavers, on Tech TV (back when it was cool)
Among other things, he said that he had been playing a regular DnD game for 12 years, and was 7th level. (Glad I don't have his GM!)

What's going on with the movie is probably the same thing that was going on last week, and the week before that, and the week before that...
Siembieda and Co. are locked down under anti-trust contracts that could choke a Fury Beetle.
THere's no telling how long the whole affair may take, but to quote Kevin S. from a conversation I had with him at GenCon last year, regarding Franzoni's script:
Me: "So someone is actually writing a script?"
Kevin S. "THey paid him $4 million dollars to write it; he better be working on it..."

We can only wait and hope. Perhaps GenCon '05 will reveal more...

Jerry Bruckheimer's schedule,

1. The Amazing Race 8th season {Status?...Filming}

2. Close to Home / tv series {Status?...Filming}

3. E-Ring / tv series / {Status?...Completed}

4. Modern Men / tv series {Status?...Pre-Production}

5. Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man's Chest / movie due out 2006 {Status?...Filming}

6. Deja Vu / movie due out 2006 {Status?...In Production}

7. G-Force / movie due out 2006 {Status?...In Production}

8. Glory Road / movie due out 2006 {Status?...Post Production}

9. National Treasure 2 / movie due out 2007 {Status?...In development}

10. Pirates of the Caribbean 3 / movie due out 2007 {Status?...Filming}

Seems to be a busy dude for a couple years yet. I'm not saying he won't do it, i'm saying be extremely patient and keep your ears to the ground.

On a side note This whole Vin Diesel as Hannibal movie thing should be in production, seems Mr. Franzoni is in the clear to write our script.

This is realtively consistent with the conversation I had with KS at GenCon this Thursday (there are some differences, but they're not pertinent to the fact of the movie being in production). He and I talked about the movie and it's still being worked on, Bruckheimer is still excited about this, and everything is moving forward. I'm not sure if I'm supposed to talk about what he said or not, and I don't want to cause snags or get things in trouble, but the movie is moving forward and Franzoni's still on it.

Hopefully there'll either be someone that can tell the whole story of what I know. There's a tiny update that I have, but beyond that, everything is as it was before.

I would think that anything that Kevin said, he was allowed to say.

Well, per this last week, Franzoni's getting 1.5 mil to write the script and he's doing either a second one or a rewrite right now. What that tells me is that Bruckheimer is interested in this enough to pay serious cash for the movie and that he's willing to wait for it to be done well.

I started reading up on Bruckheimer - that dude is a freaking powerhouse.

I think one of every Rifts book would not cost them too much. Just for the price of research.

Who knows, they may have given him 'soft' copys of their work. I'd imagine they would have a few on tap so they edit them readily before sending them off to the printers.

I don't think Ridley Scott was very happy with the script to Gladiator which Franzoni wrote. There were very many rewrites and it wasn't long enough from what I've heard.

While doing my typical time blowing and stress relieving web research for leads on the movie i stumbled across something terrifying. A Bruckheimer movie to be distributed by Disney (Filling two of three requirements for the rifts movie) titled...

Red World

Synopsis:

A man flees from the future to the present with the use of a time portal that was under construction. The man then figures out the completion of the portal will make invasion a possibility.


...At first i fully believed this was going to be the rifts movie. Ask yourself at this point, "How could one do a cheap version of the Rifts world without worrying about potentially controversial issues and the possibility of alienating the wider audience (Not us fans)? By pulling a transfer of the main character to a cheaper and cgi free environment?" well by transporting them to the present via a time portal. {Shudder} I mean i could see visions of a Terminator beginning, with the disembodied voice for 5 minutes setting the scene as CGI warriors gave us all we thought the whole movie was to be, then getting the equivalent of Michael Biehn naked in an alley...

Thankfully after a short break wherein i did a lot of swearing and pacing. I refused to accept that this travesty was the right one. I was correct and found that the script was in fact bought by Bruckheimer from a UCLA student and was subjected to insane rewrites by nobody with the name of Franzoni. So this is not to be our movie.

But in my terror state i asked some questions...like just what will they take a pass on to make it 'friendly' to the common movie goer?

Is a juicer, properly explained as a drug enhanced warrior that will die in 3-5 years from burn out acceptable for 13 year olds? I mean in a movie you aren't dealing with just us fans you have parents that will take exception to 'glorifying' drug use. For me, i want a Juicer...i want a Titan Juicer tossing jeeps around and laughing while he does so.

How hard would it be to just punk out and do a movie set in the burbs revolving around 4-5 City Rats coming of age and acting out against the man(Coalition)?

So in closing i was relieved but i'm still a little concerned until i see something concrete. But i still have faith.

That's what I'm worried about too. I don't think that they can get a really decent Rifts movie without making it rated R. I have to say I hope that it's rated high so we can see some of the really cool stuff that is described in the books.

You know, people getting hit by a boom gun, vampire attacks, all that good stuff.

Yeah.. the rifts movie HAS to be a high rated movie if not I agree there would be a lot of cool effects and scenes you would not be able to show.

I can tell you right now it has squat to do with visuals. A perfect example is King Arthur. One of Jerry's recent big movies.

They croped or cut so much from the theatrical release that it was almost like watching a new movie when watching the director's cut that had all the blood and guts included in it.

It's an example of what happens when you have a poor script and often poor visuals and you try to make it up with blood and guts.

Compare that to Gladiator which had a lot less blood then King Arthur but the visuals and story made up for it ten fold.

So just because you don't have a ton of guts hanging out of a person after they were struck by 200 flechette rounds from a Glitter Boy it doesn't mean it's suddenly a hit film. The reverse is also true.

You have to find a common ground for people to take in the sights and sounds as well as easily make sense of the conversations going on. A perfect example of where this was pulled off well was Aliens.

To live up to our dreams Jerry will have to release a movie on par with Aliens. I simply don't see that happening with the current brand of directors that tend to direct these so called blockbusters. When then happily flop. Now you take someone like Joss Whedon who masterfully directed Serenity with some of the most eye poping, yet strikingly simple, visuals (remember the end of the film when it's raining and the camera is very close several objects and you see the water droplets forming on them and it's suddenly moving and the camera follows it and then pans out into a wide shot? That's so simple yet I can name only two directors that matched that and that's James Cameron and Steven Spielberg).

I'm going to give you the real suggestion, the real winning idea for a Rifts movie, I swear this'll be done just perfect, you know it has to....Just get Genny Tartokovsky (sp?) from the Star Wars Clone Wars animated to do it, ohh dude now THAT is awesome!

Sorry, but I'd rather not see a Power Puff Line Walker or Samurai Jack-esque Juicer. Gennedy's work is spectacular for what it is - I greatly enjoyed the Clone Wars series - but I do not feel that his art style would do any kind of justice to the sort of world we're talking about.

Really - who's going to take a Dead Boy that looks like a paper cutout seriously?

the only concern I have about it myself is being compared too closely to the Star Wars episodes, with the clones and Coalition and all, not that they're really too close together

I'm also really worried about the rifts movie turning into a Star Wars rip off movie. The First Three Star Wars movies were epic stories. Rifts should not be an epic movie. Rifts lends itself to a more down to earth and gritty movie style with a grackle tooth smokin' a cigar taking pot shots at coalition soldiers and bar fights between vangaurd brawlers and Greot hunters. It should definately be in an epic context like a war, but closely follow a group of adventurers like how someone would run a game. The script has got to be good though, it's really difficult to make a good sci-fi script. Anyways, I'm starting to ramble.

I think we are all getting to the point were we will all take just about anything.

I think the answer to that question is getting into the same area as the question, "What is the meaning of live?".

Its not the question why or is it live. I think its the question of how long do we need to wait for the movie and is it going to be a blockbuster? :eek: :shock:

I am hoping, as I believe several others hear are too, that with the long time it is taking just to write the script, that the long it takes, the better the script will be.

The Rifts movie seriously needs to have a Gritty outlook. Not the Juicer/Line Walker/Glitter Boy saving the world. It needs to be like snatch, or 24th hour. Resevior Dogs or Pulp Fiction. Take a snapshot out of the life of a small group of people fighting for survival, with all the brutal reality, all the serious issues and the action that goes along with it.

Stick it in peoples faces that the future isn't always a pretty thing and we're not all gonna live forever. (Especially the Juicer)

That's just my thoughts.

"A slice of life" is still just a slice., i as an avid moviegoer want an immersive experience. I want to jump when other character jump. I wish to be on the dge of my seat and perhaps even cheering at the end. Perhaps thats why its taking so long. They literally have tens of thousands of pages of material to perhaps make into a movie but with the ability to go into so many directions they have come to an impasse.

i think a movie centering around the Devil's Gate would be cool maybe under the coalitions perspective.

actually what they should do is a couple of movies revolving around the same plot but centered on diff groups or factions and then have them come together by the third flick ^_^

You mean Genndy Tartakovsky, the man behind Dexter's Laboratory and The Powerpuff Girls! The man ROCKS!
