Speed 3 on the way?

Jul. 6, 2007by: Omar Aviles

Dennis Hopper In a recent profile of "Entourage" guest star and apparent soccer aficionado Dennis Hopper in The Guardian Unlimited, Hopper reveals that he's signed on to a SPEED 3. Say whaaa? The article puts it as such: "He certainly isn't in the mood to discuss any of the half a dozen films he is due to appear in this year, a roster which is due to include a performance in Speed 3, even though I have plenty of questions about that…" And when asked about the fact that there could be a problem with his character being a little decapitated in the original SPEED, he says: "It's a river of shit…from which I have tried to extract some gold." Hey, he's honest enough to admit he's in a river of shit but if somebody throws a barrel or eight of money at him, he's gonna try to extract some gold. Read the rest of the profile in which he discusses his various drug addictions and his penchant for Asian hookers (not actually mentioned but that doesn't mean it's not true) over HERE.

Extra Tidbit: In the article Hopper reveals that he considers himself more an artist (as in painter/photographer) than an actor.

even slower?

Ok,his character in a 3rd is really dumb, what the hell are they smoking??? But let's focus on the main thing here : the transportation. Bus (ok, can reach speeds that'll give a moped a run) then... A cruise boat... what? that thing was slower than a paralised olympic swimmer. So what next? A balloon? A 3 ppl bicycle? come on, if you're already sure it's crap, at least make it laughably bad.

a requel?


Well, the original Speed's over 10 years old now and, given Hollywood's current fascination with unwanted remakes of movies that aren't that old to begin with, maybe they're just remaking the first movie with the same cast?

Or, maybe it'll be BOTH a remake AND a sequel (a requel?) like Evil Dead 2, Desperado and Superman Returns.

And, yes, I'm being sarcastic...but, y'know, not a lot.

I think Hopper came up with

I think Dennis came up with the perfect secondary title, like it was Speed 2: Cruise Control... this one can be Speed 3: A River of Shit.

Seriously, this movie is likely to stink on ice. What are they going to say next, Jeff Daniels is set to have a role in it? You know since Hopper's character no longer has a head, why not bring back the bits and pieces of Daniels' character?

[link]?!?
Lemme get this......... Dennis Hopper signing on for the 3rd installment of Speed?!? Okay, did Hopper's character suddenly have a long lost twin that gets even with the city of Los Angeles by bringing together BOTH relatives/twins of both Keanu Reeves & Sandra Bullock (btw i'd die of shock if both or either signs on or makes a cameo in #3) must work together to save innoncent bystanders on whatever mode of transport being used in this outing.

Just as long as he doesn't choose to do a sequal to Mario Brothers. Then he would be in a ocean of shit.

Wow. I hope this movie doesn't come to fruition because it is a fucking horrible idea. That is like giving Kiefer Sutherland's Caller character from Phone Booth a movie.
