Shoot 'Em Up trilogy?

Jun. 11, 2007by:
Apparently, when the IESB dropped in on Michael Davis (SHOOT 'EM UP) for a chat, he told them that Clive Owen had signed on to do two more films! Now, while I know that this news is so awesome that you've either just blown your load, or are giving it serious consideration, I would say - if you can - just hold on for a second. IESB also reports that while there are no concrete plans for sequels as yet, Davis does have 'a script that could easily be adapted to be a follow up'.

I'll be honest, this scares me.

Admittedly, I'm not aware of that many sequels which were made with scripts not originally written in that direction, but thing is, I am aware of OCEAN'S TWELVE. And I hate that movie. I just hope that after SHOOT 'EM UP opens (and is as awesome as we all expect it to be) when the studio greenlights another 50 sequels, they're good. Unlike a lot of people, I'm all for sequels, so this is ostensibly good news to me. I just hope that the SHOOT 'EM UP isn't made for the sake of it, with a script that was meant for something else. Could it be the new DIE HARD?
Extra Tidbit: Clive Owen is fortunate that he is so intrinsically bad ass that we can buy him as a hard-boiled killer, even though we know he is the face of Lancome.

Joblo is without a doubt the best film community on the web

Part of what makes it great is that those users which sludge up AICN, IMDB, Rotten Tomatoes, etc... dont usually last too long around here.

that being said about the insults...

you suck goat nads, silverload. Nah, I'm just funnin'. Wait, no, I don't think I am... no... yeah. Just kidding. I'm just jealous that you can come to a conclusion about a film like this so quickly! Someone get this man a chair at the L.A. Times, right next to Ken Turan and you can listen to him bark like a crack-addicted pit bull with Tourette's about how FIGHT CLUB is a filthy film that promotes fascist ideals. Because God knows I joined the Fourth Reich after seeing that film. Heil Durden!

well the difference between joblo and aicn

is that for the most part, there aren't idiotic talkbacks that last for 1800 posts about "flames on Optimus" or a whole lot of insults being hurled back and forth... also I respect the contributors to this site more often than I do most of the massive dickheads at AICN. I'd take Joblo's word over Harry's any day of the week. I don't think anyone got blown at this site or there'd be a lot more 10/10 reviews, like Harry's fellatiotronic review of HOSTEL PART 2. That being said, Clive is probably

That being said, Clive is probably one of the coolest motherfuckers on the planet, and the trailer for this film makes me look forward to it more than any of the big releases coming combined. There's this and RESCUE DOWN. I could really wait for DVD for all the "event" films this summer.

God I hate this movie already

Whenever a movie becomes a cult classic before ever going into production you just know some internet king got a good blowjob out of it **coughAICNcough**

cool

Movie looks alright, but did you have to go and say this would be the next Die Hard? Lets not overblow our expectations just yet.

Yeah, I was just wondering whether that last sentence was meant to be ironic myself...

Die Hard with a vengeance was orignally a thriller called Simon Says.
