Re: Tim Boyle's The Phantom
IMDb claimed the new director for the Mandrake film is the woman who did The Peacemaker (name escapes me), but I'm not sure if that is correct. It was announced in 2003, I believe, then Meyers got onboard in 2007, and that's the last we heard about it. So yeah, it sounds likely that it is in development hell...
Depp would have been a good Mandrake, BTW, but I like the choice of Meyers. If he beefed up, he could maybe even play the young Phantom.
I hope we'll see some casting announcements for Legacy soon. I assume Worthington is going to be too busy with the Terminator franchise and the many other major movies he has on his schedule, so I am curious to see who they pick for the role of the ghost.
Someone suggested Hayden Christensen for the role of the son, which could work if he got some muscles (Zane wasn't exactly the most obvious choice for the part either back in the day, but I think he did as good a job with it as Christopher Reeve did with Superman).
