Is This Something?

Nick Cage and Nick Searcy team up to upset gun-grabbers with a story about a teen who uses a gun to get justice, called Rittenhouse: State Line Crosser.

(Or R: SLX for short.)

Just kidding, it's not about Kyle Rittenhouse. It should be.

But it will infuriate the left almost as much.

The upcoming western, debuting Jan. 6, 2023 in theaters, stars Nicolas Cage as a reformed gunslinger trying to raise his 12-year-old daughter (Ryan Kiera Armstrong). When an outlaw gang threatens his family, Cage's character schools his daughter in the art of self-defense, and that means Firearms Training 101.

"The Old Way" co-stars Nick Searcy ("Terror on the Prairie," "Gosnell"), Clint Howard ("Apollo 13," "Far and Away") and Noah Le Gros ("A Score to Settle").

French remake of the Three Musketeers, in two parts. Eva Greene as Milady. She's French I think. Or Anglo-French.

It looks a little damp, to be honest. I'm not seeing the swashbuckling quota being met. Not sure anyone is ever going to come close to equaling the Richard Lester version.

Fun story there. You might know that there's a sequel to that movie, The Four Musketeers. Ilya and Alexander Salkind, who went on to produce Superman and Superman II back to back, knew they were making both The Three Musketeers and the sequel at the same time.

They could hide this because all of the material they were shooting was from the one Alexander Dumas book. But it was a very long book.

So they didn't tell the cast or crew the story would be divided up into two films for separate release. The contracts they signed with everyone only spoke of a single movie, The Three Musketeers.

So the Salkinds didn't pay hardly anything for The Four Musketeers. It was a free movie. They paid for one movie, and got the second for free.

All of the actors and major crew were super-pissed when they saw the first movie end halfway through the material they'd shot with previews included for the next movie. Since then, all movie contracts have a Salkind clause, specifying that the contract is for a single movie only, and if there's any other movie to be made from the material shot, a separate contract must be signed to cover that.

Is this something? Chris Gore saw it and says the first five minutes are "water sports," and he doesn't mean Marco Polo.

I get the feeling that this searing indictment of Hollywood's culture of vice is actually a celebration of Hollywood's culture of vice dressed up as a searing indictment of Hollywood's culture of vice.

Um, when are you going to do a film about Hollywood's pedophilia?

By the way, Chris Gore gives a rave review for the Santa-as-John-McClane movie Violent Night.
