Just forget the words and sing along

Thursday, October 02, 2003

Well, I've officially been a student again for a month, now. The first reports and papers are due. It's kind of silly. I've been digging out all kinds of stuff from my old Augustana days, reminding myself how to do a title page.

And I just have some miscellaneous ramblings. Hugh Jackman is in negotiations with Fox to not only reprise Wolverine in X-Men 3, but also in a Wolverine solo film. Marvel Comics finally settled their lawsuit with Captain America co-creator Joe Simon over who owns the good Captain. Marvel won, so now producing a live-action Captain America movie has become a top priority. The guy who did Field of Dreams and the more-recent The Sum of All Fears is in negotiations to finally bring us Iron Man. And Catwoman has begun filming, starring Halle Berry as Patience Price/Catwoman, and by george, I really don't want to see that movie.

Oh, and this a few weeks old, but I'll report it anyway. It's been long-rumored that George Lucas is working on "ultimate editions" of the original Star Wars trilogy, with the new goal to bring them up to the level of the prequel trilogy. Rumor has it that the lightsaber duel between Darth Vader and old Obi-Wan at the end of A New Hope (that's the first one) has already been completely re-filmed with stunt doubles so it's at the same level as, say, Obi-Wan vs. Darth Maul.

And Pixar has begun work on their animated film for 2006. It's called "Ratatouile," and is about a rat who lives in a restaurant in France.
