I’ve made the case that we’re all a little sick of television remakes, but this is one I really want to see.
Scott Bakula, star of the hit show “Quantum Leap,” announced at Comi-Con this month that – FINALLY – there will be a Quantum Leap movie, according to a Salt Lake Tribute report.
There’s been rumors for years about a film, but as the actors have aged, and the show’s demand quieted, I had my doubts. According to a report by Cinematical, Bakula said he and Dean Stockwell, who played the helpful and humorous hologram Admiral Al Calavicci, will not be cast in the leads but they may return in some way for the film. He didn’t say in what form, though.
Bakula said: “The good news is that Don (creator Donald P. Bellisario) is working on the film script and has a big time Hollywood producer who wants to do it … It’s about time. But what I always thought would happen, happened … [that he’s now too old for the role]. But Dean and I will have a part in it somehow. Don did say that as he was writing, he told me he was having trouble, ‘getting you and Dean out of my head.’ But I know he will do it.”
IMDB has not listed the project, which hasn’t been optioned yet. This movie has been rumored since the show went off the air, so many people overlooked Bakula’s announcement at Comi-Con. The movie may never get off the ground, but “Quantum Leap” was one of the best shows of its era, having a five-year stint of 97 episodes from 1989 to 1993. It was playful, sentimental, poignant, and full of action, drama and comedy. It was a truly original program.
If you’ve never seen the show, the intro pretty much sums it all up
Red Riding Hood trailer
This is courtesy of the director that brought us “Twilight” and “Eclipse.” I just saw the trailer earlier today and I am not looking forward to the teen hype that is going to ensue. I literally have a headache. Can’t wait to walk past Hot Topic and see the merchandise for this movie when I go Christmas shopping!
Red Riding Hood stars Amanda Seyfried as Red Riding Hood…blah blah blah… medieval teenager with gelled hair… blah blah blah… sexual tension… blah blah blah… lovers can’t be with each other. These all sound too familiar. Oh wait! That’s because I saw all of that in Twilight! After watching the rest of the trailer, I’ve concluded that this is pretty much a combination of “The Wolfman” and “Twilight.” Hopefully Brothers Grimm: Snow White will be nothing like this.
