Scorpion King sequel?

Jun. 14, 2007by:
I'm not ashamed to admit I own THE SCORPION KING on DVD -- part of that stems from my manlove for The Rock, but it's actually just a fun old-school swords-and-sorcery adventure flick, and they don't make too many of those anymore.

Or do they? Apparently a sequel is in the works, with director Russell Mulcahy sharpening the blade. Mulcahy has some familiarity with edged weaponry -- he directed fan-fave HIGHLANDER (and, sadly, the first sequel). He hasn't exactly landed the best of projects since then, but he's back in theaters soon with the Vegas-based zombie action of RESIDENT EVIL: APOCALYPSE.

No word on the SCORPION sequel's premise or cast, but it's probably safe to assume The Rock isn't returning, since he seems more interested in flexing his acting and comedy muscles than using them for slaughter. Maybe they can lure back the divine Kelly Hu, at least.
Extra Tidbit: THE SCORPION KING's wiseass sidekick Grant Heslov (also playing the same in TRUE LIES) now runs a production company with George Clooney, and co-wrote GOOD NIGHT AND GOOD LUCK.

Wrong Resident Evil Title

Just an FYI, Russell Mulcahy is making his way back to the big screen with Resident Evil: EXTINCTION... not Apocalypse. Anyway, a new Scorpion King would not bode well for me simply because I fell asleep in the original while IN the theatre.. that's not normal for me and it only happened during the TOMB RAIDER movies also...yes, both of them!

Yeah.....that movie sucked and was corny. Except for the hotness being paraded about by girls in next to nothing, there was little fun had by me there. Pass.
