Missing in Action again

03.06.2009

You know that saying "What once was old is new again"? That even applies to Cannon Films.

Apparently MGM wants to do an update of the Chuck Norris "classic" MISSING IN ACTION, the 1984 cheese-and-bullets flick about Army colonel and ex-POW Jim Braddock, who violently ventures back into Vietnam to rescue more prisoners.

Unsurprisingly, the new version will be updated from the 'Nam to the Iraq War. Which would be awesome except for one thing: Nobody wants to watch movies about the Iraq War.

Also, the new flick is being co-produced by WWE Studios, so (aside from a potential direct-to-DVD status) we can expect a former/current grappler to step out of the ring with some heavy artillery.

The original managed both a prequel and a sequel, which means that someday soon you can have the MISSING IN ACTION Quadrilogy on your media shelf. Probably sandwiched between your AMERICAN NINJA box set and the complete works of Albert Pyun.

Extra Tidbit: Was the whole "Facts about Chuck Norris" thing ever actually funny? If so, explain.

Little known fact...

There are no facts about Chuck Norris - only information that Chuck Norris allows to exist!

WWE producing, which means we'll most likely see John Cena take the lead role...saw The Marine the other day, not impressed, although 12 Rounds looks better.

I thought the Chuck Norris facts were kinda funny maybe the first or second time...until my boss at work starting posting them on her cubicle, thinking it was the hip and cool thing to do. Oh, and making it into a Family Guy does not mean its funny. Sorry, JayMike.

Facts about Chuck Norris are lame. Now facts about Sean Connery, that's a different story.

Charles Norris

I think the Chuck facts were funny not cause he's really a bad ass but just to say the most impossible stuff about someone. Some were really stupid but if it made it into a family guy episode it had to be at least a little funny.
