I Am Sgt. Rock

The Sarge gets mean

Apparently Joel Silver has been laboring for 20 years to have DC's WWII non-superpowered hero Sergeant Rock on the big screen. Silver and producing partner Akiva Goldsman feel that the latest director they've attached to the project will be the one to finally make it happen.

Warner and Silver Pictures have tapped I AM LEGEND helmer Francis Lawrence to direct the SGT ROCK movie from a modern-take script by Chad St-John, a newcomer who's also working on an update to the Sean Connery "classic" OUTLAND.  The film would uproot the sarge from Nazi-fighting to a more current (and probably middle-eastern) setting, 'cause if INGLORIOUS BASTERDS proved anything it's that WWII can still make for kick-ass movies and we wouldn't want THAT now would we???

So let's recap. Akiva Goldsman producing - check. Absolute unknown writer -  check. Completely change the comic book's setting- check. Only thing missing is Nic Cage. I wonder if they'll send someone to pick up their Razzie in person.

Extra Tidbit: Does this mean the LEGEND prequel is being pushed back? Do we mind???

Wow, the ideas these people have sometimes. I guess they dont want to compete with Captain America which will be completely in WWII, or have people saying "they are just trying to copy what Marvel is doing" That is the only reason i can think of that they are doing this movie at all let alone in modern day.

I Am Sgt. Rock

I'm going to echo the 'fuck this' statement, especially since Silver has got an unused SGT. ROCK script sitting in his drawer by UNFORGIVEN writer David Webb Peoples.

Evil evil man...

Akiva Goldman's first act of evil is believed to be around the 1600's when he travelled to London and thought a fire is what the city needed, which he then started and made sure it grew and grew. However he himself considered this a failure and was thoroughly disappointed due to the little amount of death's the fire caused...

oh...

I just realized why it's current. It's propaganda to subliminally enlist young boys into the army to fight where Sgt. Rock fought.

FUCK THIS!!!!

Why does someone like Akiva Goldsman still have a place in Hollywood!? Modern setting!? He's a WWII character!
Nic Cage will probably be up for this, ya know... Did we all see Windtalkers? no? good. ..
At least Cap America is still WWII...

Oh, that's so upsetting. Are they going to make Enemy Ace a suicide bomber?
