Ratner wants Pattinson

08.13.2009

When they were handing out superhero franchises, it appears that Brett Ratner was late to the party. He managed to get his hands on X-MEN 3, but as for his own series? It seems the only thing left in the bin was YOUNGBLOOD.

The series is from Deadpool co-creator Rob Liefeld and it follows a government-backed superhero team lead by a codpiece-wearing archer named “Shaft.” Really. And who does Ratner want for the part? He recently spilled his guts to MTV about his dream man for the role. “Definitely [Robert Pattinson] from 'Twilight…He just feels like he belongs in that world. I don't only see him as a vampire, he's a really good actor…. [Pattinson] could do anything. He just has that look…I picture him on Youngblood, for sure."

To me, Ratner, Pattinson and YOUNGBLOOD is a match made in heaven. Without trying to be to mean here, YOUNGBLOOD is frankly a throwaway series, and I’m ten times more pumped about even the NAMOR movie. Ratner lost me for good after RUSH HOUR 3 was the laziest bit of filmmaking I’ve ever seen. And Pattinson? I will say that given the script he has to work with in TWILIGHT, he does a very adequate job.

This just might be a perfect storm of mediocrity. And it’ll only cost $10 to witness.

Bratner is a huge tool!!!

remember that fat kid from high school who tried to be black and flirt with all the ladies? Remember how he thought he was so funny and cool? Well now he's all grown up and he directs shitty films like X-Men 3, Rush Hour 3, and Red Dragon(I can't believe that movie actually got good reviews). I hope a piano falls in his fat face

NO GOD OF WAR(?)

I remember reading right here on JoBlo that Ratner was OFF God Of War, saying he's focusing on Conan(?). Please tell me I didn't miss out on anything. God Of War is -in my opinion- the best damn thing on PS2 / PS3, and the last thing it needs is a shitty film treatment especially by a f**knut like Bret Ratner. God Of War is cinematic enough...leave it alone.

Oh, and I don't give a s**t about some third rate comic. Bret Ratner can spend 5years f**king it up even more with Mr.Twilight. As long

If they want to stay true...

If they want to stay true to the comics the way to go would be to cram the whole shoot into 10 days, write it as they go, have the costumes supplied by an S&M shop that caters to circus performers, film everything on a sound stage with white walls that they can paint random jagged shapes on as backgrounds and hire d-list actors for every role. What Rob Rodriguez did for Sin City, Ratner would do for Youngblood.

It's a shame if Pattinson went for it because the guy can actually act (see Goblet of Fire for proof). Hopefully it won't happen.

Doesn't Really Affect Me

Wow, people really hate Ratner. He single-handedly destroyed a franchise that got so much worse after he left.

I could care less about this turd movie. The real question I want answered is how in the name of Zeus's butthole did he get God of War?!?

Pattinson wasn't known when he signed for Twilight but he is now. I hope he has enough self-respect end ambition not to make a Ratner superhero movie!

Ratner & Liefeld

Perfect duo... they'll make the shittiest product and justify their efforts because it makes money as opposed to admit what they lacked and what they could do better. F*ck those assholes for setting a poor example for schmucks within their respective industries, and for continuing to lower the expectations & standards of the mass audience.

YoungBlood Collector

Ratner do us all a favor and keep your f**king hands off the comic book movies. Isn't it enough you single handedly destroyed the X-Men series?! Leave the Twilight geek alone and BACK THE F**K AWAY!

Well...

If theres one positive thing about this story it would be that both of them would be together if um, God saw fit to send them both off a fucking cliff or something.

PLEASE GET HIM AWAY FROM GOD OF WAR!!!

I cant believe you even watched rush Hour 3.... I lost hope in Ratner when he wanted to cast the one of the tennis playin williams "brothers" as a sex mutant on X-men 3(Glad that didnt happen)...He screwed up that franchise and I wouldnt want him screwing up GOD OF WAR which in the right hands has a potential of being a great movie.If any one is listening please make sure Kratos does not get screwed on his movie.Make it right or dont make it at all!!!
