Soda Ash batnews 07/28/01...

heres the newest news for those of you in the auidence who are DC comics
fans.
{{this aint gospel, just my sources talkin, {unless otherwise
indicated}}

---Batman: year one {movie} is due to start production -next month-.!!
ive got nothin on cast. nothin on soundtrack. i do know "Pi" and
"Requiem for a dream" man is on it. {such a nice russian-americunt} and
the all too spookie, shitty, arrogant, confused, "i'm in league with
satan" Frank miller is CO-screenwriter w/ pi-man.
again////no dice on cast or soundwork.
BUT...i DO know, however, that Ben Affleck auditioned and failed his
screentest....{{...which breaks my heart...who ELSE can play a young
bruce wayne : college years?? Ben is perrrfect, ah well.}

nextly:
the WB {channel 5? i believe} commishioned a live-action evening series
{As opposed to a cartoon that airs while i'm at a job i dont even need.
pish.} of -last i heard- either "Smallsville" charting the young life
of Clark Kent {of superpud, i mean superman joke...i mean fame..}
OR!!!!! "GOTHAM" ...chartering the young life of the gazillionaire Bruce
Wayne...the atemp was to create a buzzz platform for the movie "Batman:
Year One" ....news is now.....-and this is confirmed, via a commercil i
just saw that spawned this very email...----....the ` winner of the WB
time slot that is to be the new show in place of Buffy the Vamp
Bitch...is...SMALLSVILLE....
all i have to say is....WHO CARESABOUT CLARK FUCKIN KENT?!?! DIDNT WE
SEE THIS SHIT ONE TIME AROUND WITH 'LOIS AND CLARK"?!?!?!?!?!?!?!
....congrats to terri hatcher for such films as Two days in the
valley....and dean cain for Ripleys believe it or ot.....year 50.
kents a wanker..
pitty....since James Marsden was rumored to have been cast as young
bruce for the series........grrrrrrrrdamnit.

thirdly..
set for pre-production asap {i'm assming `as soon as "Year One" is on
the edit reel} "CatWoman" the movie. no dice on any crew aside from the
happy news that DC gets last say and NOT WB. {{fuckin smallsville, ill
never forgive those assholes for that.....judas?...hand me a cross and a
fistfulla nails....we need to make a scene of this bullshit}}}
primise: Selena Kyle . young girl , suicidal mum, drunk pop, state
foster home. runs away. steals for living, gets older. keeps stealing.
steals from bruce wayne. wayne lets her. gets older. starts stealin for
charity orgs against animal crewlty. etcetcetctec...nice, eha? the "good
" news is....the roles already been cast.
Ashley Judd. i dont hate it...i dont love it..
we'll see. atleast the primise is faithful to the actual story of miss
kyle's fall {or rise} into catwoman.

lastly...and this...is good...

i found out this bit of batnews...
a BATMAN BEYOND film is presently being cast for. sally field seems to
"have"barbarba gorden. i dunno the rest.....it set to be placed ` right
after Year One...since...its a WB co-sign deal w/ Y 1...whereas
"Catwoman" is not...
odd aint it?
the bad news? its been compared -already- to "Matrix featuring a lythe
batman in every scripted scene"
...i dunno how that could be bad...but..

the GOOD NEWS....neither frank "hello my name is satan" miller NOR
...schumacher, spielburg or the rest of those `mongoloid goonies have
thier hands on BMB the movie yet.....

given the tone of BMB...and the recent "yeah, ill do it....no wait
nevermind, ive got this damn dirty ape picture im workin on" feel of
mister tim burton....my dollar is on Burton havin -something- to do with
it. be it `direction, production or set.

i have hiccups.
