    You can always tell the actors who Hollywood really expects something out of by the directors they are working with. Hemsworth is the real deal even if that Robot movie doesn't get off the ground.

    As long as he doesn't become another Worthington. He seems pretty good natured and self aware in interviews. Not ridiculously serious.

    What's hilarious is listening to the Star Trek 09 commentary with Abrams struggling to remember his name during the George Kirk scenes and then kind of giving up because it was just a small role anyways.

    I will watch anything Mann puts out. I even watch things he merely produces like his daughter's movie, Texas Killing Fields (the cinematography in which seemed like signature Mann to me, so, like father like daughter, I guess). I've been slowly rewatching his films, although I'm a bit hampered by what I have access to. Neftlix has Thief, though, which is even better than Heat, if you ask me.

    If any of you has Netflix instant and hasn't seen Thief, you are missing out. I have seen it several times over the years and it never gets old.

    Last of the Mohicans is also on Netflix. Not sure if Heat is since I have that on DVD. Got to rewatch Collateral on HBO or something recently. Got to see Ali as well. Waiting for a replay of Miami Vice at some point. Need to borrow Public Enemies off of my friend again. Then I think I will have rewatched most of them that I actually want to rewatch.

    Except Father has a grasp of this little thing called "story." Texas Killing Fields was a mess, imo. Daughter may be able to somewhat imitate her father's visual style, but she seems to have inherited none of his talent as a storyteller.

    Anyway, it's nice to see Hemsworth branching out to the non-action hero arena with projects like this and Rush. As of right now, I have a hard time even imagining him in a Michael Mann movie, which is what makes this prospect exciting to me.

    He's already shown that he isn't a talentless actor like Worthington. For one thing he actually has great screen presence which Worthington has never displayed.
    Not saying he is Lawrence Oliver or anything but he is better than Worthington and Taylor Kitsch for that matter.

    Hemsworth is totally the opposite of Worthington. Actually, reading his comments about Alan Taylor and Thor 2, I wouldn't be surprised if Hemsworth really pushed for a more 'Game of Thrones' approach with the sequel. It sounds like he has a good head on his shoulders, and yes, he destroys Taylor Kitsch.

    In fact, Taylor Kitsch and Brandon Routh should do a sitcom together, with Hayden Christensen as their lonely neighbor.

    I just listen to it recently. What a time capsule.

    I thought this might be that Candy Shop project Hemsworth is attached to. I like Mann and hope he can get back to his best after the disappointing Public Enemies.

    I like Hemsworth, but I don't have faith in Mann anymore. Still, for old times sake, I'll probably to check it out.

    I guess I'm the only person who liked Public Enemies. It wasn't a classic , but I still thought it was good.

    Hopefully the camerawork will be better.
    Mann is going for a real look with his latest movies . Having watched the Hobbit , i think a higher framerate might definately improve the cinematography greatly.
    And also hopefully they flesh out the story more. IT's one of the reasons why i have problems with Miami Vice.

    A post-Collateral Michael Mann shooting in 48fps? I hope I die before I see it.

    Oh hey look... a good idea with a good actor attached directed by Michael Mann. Let's hope Mann doesn't make it boring this time.

    5 years since a Mann movie !!! It will look gorgeous that's for sure.

    The camerawork will be better ? You're actually saying this about a Michael Mann movie ?

    There's definitely no limits to what i can read in the internet and be in complete awe :woot:

    I hated Vice and thought that Enemies was terribly mediocre so I'm not expecting a good film but I do expect the Hemsworth role to be meater than the Avengers. It will be nice to see him do something that isn't. a huge special effects a-thon.

    Mann's digital aesthetic + Hong Kong? YES PLEASE. Wonder who his DP is this time.

    I'm really liking the sound of this and I don't mind admitting I hope it has a classic Mann shootout in it. :D

    His choice to use High Def when shooting Public Enemies was a complete and utter mistake, IMO. It damn near ruined the movie for me just on it's own. High def and a period piece set in the 1930's just doesn't mix. The high def was ok for Collateral though.
