No Under Siege 3, but

02.22.2007
You may recall reading some buzz around this here internets about a rather decent UNDER SIEGE 3 script recently making the rounds. But while soldier-chef Steven Seagal and Warner Bros. (who owns the franchise) won't be reuniting for more action with pie-making Navy SEAL Casey Ryback, that doesn't necessarily mean the screenplay itself has a kitchen knife jammed through its brainpan.

According to captured spy 'Stranix Junior', the well-received UNDER SIEGE 3 script has been retooled as a stand-alone actioner now operating under the title URBAN COMBAT. The new property is making the studio rounds, and word has it that the WWE folks might be interested in getting involved with the project, possibly as another vehicle for rassler John Cena of THE MARINE (which is doing explosive biz on home vid).

I'll try to extract more info from our prisoner, but for now it looks like the UNDER SIEGE 3 rumors can be put to rest. Bad news for any and all remaining fans of Seagal, Erika Eleniak and, of course, Nick Mancuso.
Extra Tidbit: Seagal has churned out no less than thirteen direct-to-video flicks since his last theatrical release, 2002's HALF PAST DEAD.

Working Actor

Seagal is a "working actor". Y'all are treating him like he's a fine artist who should ONLY produce masterpieces. Look, he reads the script, pans his steely-eyed gaze(TM) at the baddies, and they cut him a check. Revenue covers production plus a little on the side.

This is like saying Casey Ryback should only prepare lavish banquets for admirals -- that it's somehow "beneath him" to prepare lunch for a bunch of hungry sailors.

Dudes, lay off. Seagal has accomplished more, and is way

Dudes, lay off. Seagal has accomplished more, and is way cooler, than you will ever be. Give the man some respect in retirement.

Steven Seagal have you no shame?! All those direct to dvd movies I'd be willing to bet are terrible. I know I've seen at least two of them. It takes some kind of miracle to make Seagal look good these days on film, and lord forbid he be given any creative control. Nothing personal but he was barely cool 15 years ago. Italian dude, doing kung fu, wearing loads of cheesy Native American clothing. Stick a fork in him.

I vote for a spinoff movie starring Erika Eleniak and a cake.

Of course they would need a time machine to go back and film it when she was still hot.

My God...

I think I almost cried. Not at the fact of a 3rd Under Siege, the fact that that clown, Seagal, has done THIRTEEN direct-to-dvd movies in only about 5-6 years. Truly cringe-worthy!
