Doc Holliday Film

12.18.2009

The best thing about TOMBSTONE for a lot of movie fans was Val Kilmer's portrayal of Doc Holliday.

That being said, Paramount has bought the spec script to THE FURTHER ADVENTURES OF DOC HOLLIDAY penned by Chad St. John. It's probably safe to say that there's a slim chance that Kilmer will reprise his role for the film. Reason being, well, I don't really need to point it out. The adventures of the gambling dentist will be produced by Lorenzo di Bonaventura (TRANSFORMERS).

Here's where it gets amusing. The studio gave a little description of the movie, "A history-based action adventure tale in the vein of "Pirates of the Caribbean."Um, yep. While I am among the group of people who actually like PIRATES OF THE CARIBBEAN, I'm trying to figure out why they would compare it to that. Seriously? Any of you got some ideas?

HOLLIDAY would be a period film, but that period would be a Western in the mid-1800's. Plus I'm thinking that there are more historical accuracies with HOLLIDAY than PIRATES. The only thing that's really comparable is the action-adventure aspect. Well, I'm definitely looking forward to developments on this. Though sadly, I know how it ends.

Extra Tidbit: "I'm your huckleberry." Sorry. It had to be said.

I tought it was a movie about Roy Halladay. No joke. I don't know who the 'other' Doc Holliday portrayed by Kilmer is.

yea I'd like to see Kilmer do this if the script is good, but he'd have to lose some weight. Love to see him in Top Gun 2 also.

Has anyone...

...ever seen The Adventures of Brisco County Jr.? Something like that would fit that description. Staring Bruce Campbell It only aired one season, but it was pretty badass.

Wow, I hadn't heard of that in a very long time, but I do remember it, and, yes, it was badass

The idea of an over-the-top, actiony western with fantastical elements to it isn't terrible.

But casting Val Kilmer in it would make it seem like they want it to tie into Tombstone, which doesn't make sense since that movie wasn't over the top actiony at all.

Either cast someone else or make it fit into the Tombstone version of the old west, I say.

POTC in the old west, the clostest thing I can think of is Wild, Wild, West. That's not a good thing. This might work, but right now I'm not to sure.

I thought you were going to say that Kilmer's return would be slim because he's fat now :(

you're a daisy if you do.

Doc is such a compelling character that I am giving this the benefit of the doubt.

Kilmer's was one of the all time great screen characters... but Quaid didn't suck either.

Tombstone

That was a Kilmer performance that should've at least got an Oscar nod for supporting actor. He was robbed man. He's damn good in that movie.

Tombstone!

Kilmer was so money in that movie. Great great [link] When they say it will be in the vein of "Pirates", to me that sounds like they will strip the drama from the story and the depth from the character and make it an action/adventure romp. I don't think that really fits the character so I think that would be dumb.
