Keanu is Plastic?

07.15.2008

After SPEED RACER did the Flintstones flop at the box-office many wondered whether it meant doom for other big-budget Wachowski brothers adaptations. Apparently it didn't mean much as it seems that the Wachowskis and Joel Silver are gearing up to get filming going on PLASTIC MAN. According to CHUD, Silver told a German radio station (he's over there with that NINJA ASSASSIN movie) that he and the Wachowskis are looking for a holiday 2009 release for PLASTIC and that they're talking to Keanu Reeves about starring. It's interesting news but unfortunately CHUD wasn't able to dig up much in their fact checking other than no comments. That said, it's not the most bizarre rumor in the world. I'd certainly love for the Wachowskis to do something other than PLASTIC MAN but I wouldn't be surprised if they did and convinced Keanu Reeves to strap on the goggles. Silver will be at Comic-Con promoting NINJA so expect him to be bombarded with questions about this very subject and hopefully we'll get a confirmation or denial.

Hey DeejayForte

I worked for a special effects company a few years ago and I shit you not, one of the projects we were putting a bid together for was a Stretch Armstrong movie! Mercifully I think the project died but there was indeed a Stretch Armstrong script making the rounds.

tsukasa13 - that's partially because they didn't technically (*cough* or legally) create the first Matrix Film's screenplay.

So this will be, what, the fourth time we'll see a superhero with stretchy powers in theaters? Weh. The Incredibles did it better.

May I make a suggestion?

If this does get the greenlight, don't put "From The Creators of The Matrix Trilogy" all over the posters and trailers. We all know that doesn't mean shit to us.

keanu is too slow & mumbling

I would love to see the Wachowskis do this. Speed Racer was crazy fun, not their fault it didn't do more $. Keanu is ok in certain roles, but i sure don't imagine him as a fast-talking maniac clowner. How about giving Johnny Depp a superhero role? He can certainly do crazy and has a lot of presence, much needed if you're hidden behind googles.

I still haven't seen Speed Racer yet but I do know that the superhero movie genre is getting quite crowded.Why don't the wachowskis come up something of their own invention???The Matrix trilogy was'nt as good as everyone hoped but it was alot better than a fucking Plastic Man movie?Who the fuck is Plastic Man? Another D-List superhero that nobody cares about who apparently is ripe for mainstream toy lines and promotion and oh yeah ANOTHER SHITTY SUPERHERO MOVIE!If you're not Marvel or Chris

Reeves as Plastic Man? this could be the dumbest casting rumor I've ever heard. I can't think of a specific person to play Plas but ANYBODY is better

wow...

I'm glad the wachowski's fell in love with cgi and threw their all their philosophy education out the window. why not at least TRY to make shit up to the originality and intelligence of the matrix, instead of these simple popcorn flicks. sure the matrix was a popcorn flick, but fuck, it was so much more!

And whatever Joel Silver does tell you, don't believe it because the man has a reputation for lying to help sell his films. That guy is such an industry sleazeball.

Bruce Campbell

Bruce always reminded me of Plastic Man. Same with Jim Carrey. They're both a little old for the role now though.

This sounds like BS!!!

WB can't get Wonder Woman, Green Lantern, or even Flash off the ground, but they're going to greenlight a Wachowski/Silver $150 million production of Plastic Man? Especially after losing their asses on Speed Racer? I call SHANANIGANS. I love the Wachowskis and they make awesome stuff, but I don't see this happening folks.

Jim Carrey would have been a good Plastic Man about 10 years ago! [link]

I could see a Plastic Man movie but not with the "Whoa" playing him.

Who would be a better actor for the role? Maybe Jim Carrey 10 years ago.

ODD! But...

you know, Keanu was Ted Logan, he can do dim witted characters very well. I don't know, I will wait for a confirmation to then think better about it. As for the Wachowski, at least the guys TRY to do something different.

this seems a little odd.

I need a bit to think on it.
