I think Mike Meyers said something about crying as he listened to them when he got the part.

I honestly can't watch Black Sheep and some SNL skits anymore after reading that book. Poor Chris really didn't want to make that movie but was forced into it from studio pressure to create a "Tommy Boy 2." He was really tired of all the "fat guy falls down jokes" by then.
Just ordered it on Amazon two minutes ago. Can't wait to read it.
Thanks for the info

Arnold has gotten somewhat shorter with age, but I can't imagine various bodybuilding associations lying about his height in the 70s. He measured 6ft1 during his bodybuilding days.

One movie that should have been made long ago, but never has (yet still could be, it's not too late), is a sequel to Willow. They've written a novel which is a sequel to the film, so why not adapt the novel to a film.

Although I will admit, I haven't read the book yet, so I don't know how adaptable it is. But still, a Willow 2 movie would be pure gold (as long as George Lucas just produces again and doesn't direct, leave the directing to Ron Howard).

I loved Willow. I wouldn't mind a Willow 2.

I can see the title screen now. The word "Willow" comes up, then the two l's in Willow go to the side and form a II. Willow II.

That's actually not a bad idea, at least for the trailer.

Warwick Davis has said one of the things he's most frequently asked is "When are they going to come out with Willow 2?" And he's also said that he would love to reprise the role of Willow Ufgood in a sequel. So all I gotta say is "Hey George Lucas! Hey Ron Howard! Get up off your asses and start making that damn movie!"

I don't think George is going to want to do it, since he's off doing his own thing now. Ron should do it, though. Now that Disney owns Lucasfilm, I don't doubt a Willow sequel in the near future.

Well George was only executive producer for Willow anyway. Basically his job was to write out a cheque, hand it to Ron Howard and say "Here's your budget, now go make your movie."

But if he's not even gonna be doing that much, then "Disney! Get off your asses and make a sequel to Willow!"

I loved on Life's Too Short when Warwick Davis was talking about all the movies where he basically has to hide his face, then George Lucas gave him the starring role in Willow, even put his face on the poster. He was like "This movie cost $40 million, and it has made almost all of that back."

I think he meant that as a joke. I highly doubt the movie cost $40 million. $10 million maybe. And I'm sure it's made far more than that, not only at the box office, but also in 20 plus years of vhs, dvd, and now blu-ray sales.

I know it was a joke, but the way he delivered it was just great.

so apparently the script/plot used in Die Hard With A Vengeance was originally planned to be used in the 3rd Lethal Weapon movie

as much as i loved the 3rd Die Hard, i think it would have been pretty cool seeing Riggs & Murtaugh going all around LA trying to prevent bombs from going off

Agreed, it would have been pretty cool.
Speaking of Die Hard, I read recently that Frank Sinatra was first attached to the McClane role and that Joel Silver even offered him the part as a courtesy and that (thankfully) the already pretty old Sinatra turned it down.

I've always wished for a Blair Witch 3. I thought the original was the best horror film of the 90's and it was the only film to ever scare the hell out of me. Blair witch 2 was horrible,but only because the studio wanted to cash in and rushed it out only a year after the original. Original creators Dan Myrick and Eduardo Sanchez had nothing really to do with Book of Shadows,but they have expressed a desire to do a Blair witch 3 as a period piece,focusing on the witch herself. But they've said no one at the studio wants to do a period piece.

Also,I REALLY wanted a dark and disturbing Nightmare on Elm Street prequel with Robert Englund back as Freddy. But the Elm Street franchise seems dead in the water right now,thanks to Platinum Dunes and their horrible remake.

I don't know if Scorsese was ever involved but I remember hearing plans for a Godfather: Part IV in the late 90s as a sequel/prequel split ala Godfather: Part II with the studio wanting DiCaprio to play a young Sonny Corleone in the 30s while Andy Garcia would reprise his role of Vincent continuing the Corleone story in the 70s/80s

For one reason or another, it never happened.

A film that I'm glad was abandoned is "Batman Triumphant." Schumacher's follow up to "Batman and Robin."

That pic of Cage above was just a mockup done by cropping Cage's head onto an action figure. Some costume tests were actually done though.
