Smokin' prequel update

11.04.2008

It's been around a year since we heard anything solid on the proposed prequel to SMOKIN' ACES -- at that time, writer/director Joe Carnahan had finished the script and was awaiting official approval.

Apparently that approval has finally come, as "Smokin' Joe" succinctly states at his blog: "Finally, some actual 'Smokin Aces' news. Universal has officially greenlit the prequel and we are underway. Cameos will abound. Trust me."

There ya go -- more excessive and kinetic hitman violence on the way, courtesy of the ACES originator. Here's hoping those cameos include the exceptionally fine Alicia Keys and Affleck's awesome pornstache.

Extra Tidbit: At the beginning of the year, Carnahan said he would be writing an upcoming title from Marvel Comics.

At Henry Lee Lucas...re-read what Buddha wrote. I think you may have misinterpreted it.

I can understand if you enjoyed this movie for it being brainless entertainment, but there is NO way you just praised it for its writing...(to buddha)

Alicia Keys is the woman in the picture

I actually liked Smokin Aces. Smart, violent, and slick.

I hope it won't be straight-to-dvd like he said it was. But yeah this is okay news, the movie was cool with me but kinda disappointing at the same time I gave it a 7/10 last time I watched it which was like not long after it came out.

I Know I'm In The Minority Here...

...but I really did not like Smokin' Aces. It's possible to make the type of movie buddha describes but also have it be well-written and have characters we can at least somewhat care about (see Pulp Fiction) this movie did neither and the "twist ending" that was completelty obvious, really, really, really bugged me. I mean I know some people guessed the endings to Sixth Sense and The Usual Suspects, but it felt like they weren't even trying on this one. Honestly I wasn't even too impressed with

I mean I know some people guessed the endings to Sixth Sense and The Usual Suspects, but it felt like they weren't even trying on this one. Honestly I wasn't even too impressed with the action scenes. They just felt cheesy and cartoony. Which can work for me if it's in the right movie(Shoot 'Em Up for example) but in this case I was pretty much already turned off by the time the action in the hotel even started.

Still, for all you guys who liked the original, yeah great news.

They're finally underway and they can't give us a title so we can quit calling it 'The Smoking Aces Prequel'. I'm for one guessing it's Kings on Fire or On fire Aces, okay horrible guesses.

smokin' good news...

great news...for every good, well written drama that makes for a good night out at the movies, every now and then you want, no, need the flipside...a balls to the wall, no holds barred action extravaganza, some kick ass shoot em up stuff, and smokin delivered that in spades.

bring it on.
