Dolph Lundgren would've made a perfect Doc Savage, unfortunately he's probably too old for the role.  Maybe Jon Hamm or Alexander Skarsgård?

Wiseguy - Thought that Guy Ritchie was doin Lobo next?

Hanso - Fukin nice to see you back again!

RaM1Lo - Your right about Dolph being really old but still doing action movies to bad his acting has gone down hill too. Reason just finished watching Diamond Dogs last night had to force myself to see the ending but yeah it was bad.

Doc Savage just wouldn't work in a modern setting. It just wouldn't have the same seat of your pants high adventure feel of the novels.

Jon Hamm or Alexander Skarsgard would be better choices for Doc. Dwayne Johnson not so much, he's got the size but his acting is not so good.

C2F, if I were you, I wouldn't rely on anything those tossers at aicn say (or at least add serious disclaimers when quoting them) , as seems to have been proven by the debunking of the De Niro and Law story.  Although I thought that De Niro would've made a great Ymir (CGI enhanced of course) and if Law had beefed up, then he would've been a great Fandral.

Matador, I think you're right. The Sgt Rock/Ritchie was never confirmed. But he was Joel Silver's heavy fave and Ritchie had said he wanted it but I think maybe that changed with Lobo's announcement

Matador 10/26/2009 5:29:35 PM

Well that sucked.

Here's wishful thinking maybe if we wish hard enough Steven Spielberg  would direct a Sgt Rock movie.

Matador, I have to be honest, I don't see the point in forcing one's self to watch a crappy movie.  At least when somebody forces themselves to vomit, they generally feel better?  Do you feel better after watching a crappy movie?  No...why?  Because the movie was crappy, AND that's 90 plus minutes (depending on movie) that one could have been reading great literary works, finding a cure for cancer, or masturbating like a howler monkey on speed...these are all better activities than forcing yourself to watch a crappy movie...lol.  Just had to share some smartassery since I don't really care about any of today's news articles.

Monkeyfoot,again I refer you to the Mummy films with Brendan Fraser. The Mummy's budget was 80 million and it grossed 415m worldwide. The Mummy Returns budget was about 98m and grossed 433m worldwide. The Mummy 3 budget was 145m and grossed 401m worldwide! As you can see the Mummy films grossed on average of just over 400m worldwide so I think it's fair to say that you can make big budget films set in the past,like the 20's,30's,and 40's and have them do well in theaters! Having said that,monkeyfoot,I understand what you're saying. It would be interesting to see a Doc Savage story set in our day from a sheer technology standpoint but that should only happen much later,if ever. The way I see it,it's fun to go back and explore the past,especially if it's done well,because sometimes less is more!Hanso,I would like you to meet my friend,who gives a damn! One of the reasons why I don't require paragraph breaks is because I want my comments to stand out. Besides,if I use them then my sermons would take even more space and given my track record,they are certainly long enough as they are! But I appreciate the advice nonetheless!

 I really hope Doc Savage gets made. I've wanted to see a big-screen of the character for a long time. I'm glad to read that the thought is to keep Doc in the 30s and that the Fabulous Five will be along for the ride.
