Meryl Streep

Be still my beating heart!!!

A while ago, I posted that a movie-version of the London musical Mamma Mia! would star Pierce Brosnan and Meryl Streep in the lead roles.

While this continues to be true, Amazon.com has reported that also joining the cast are Christine Baranski, Skellen Skarsgard, and COLIN FIRTH!

Sweet, sweet, and sweeter!

Also, Amanda Seyfried (the dumb one in Mean Girls) is slated to play the daughter.

In equally awesome news, after an "is he-isn't he" debate, it has finally been verified that Shia LaBeouf will play a role in the fourth Indiana Jones film. (Yay!) It hasn't been confirmed whether or not he'll be Indy's son...though I must say, it would play really well into my "refreshing" of the franchise idea if Indy Jr. takes up the reigns and has his own adventures for a few flicks. Mmm...Shia LaBeouf doing the Indy thing!

Final note: I forgot to add Live Free or Die Hard to my summer blockbuster list. Of course I will be seeing that. Bruce Willis as John McClane, Timothy Olyphant as a bad guy, and Justin Long (Mac, in the Mac vs. PC commercials) doing something...I'm not really sure. But it will rock.

I'm still working on the "getting sisters to come see Disturbia with me today." Shia LaBeouf! Rowr! (BTW, I totally watch "Even Stevens" every once in a while, just because I adore him.)

FUN FACT!


"Indiana" was the name of George Lucas' dog.


Alright...enough of the Indiana Jones site...and back to work. How 'bout that Hitchcock, eh?

By the way, I want to Bond-ify the Indiana Jones franchise.

Now, that's not to say I want to give Indy high-tech gadgets and an Aston Martin. What I'd love to do is replace Harrison Ford, but still have the "Indiana Jones" character. I want to give him oodles of adventures for decades and decades and constantly replace him with someone younger, cuter, and more fit.

Oh yeah, and I want to suspend all realities of time and space the way Bond does. (Seriously...if Casino Royale is a prequel to the story, is it really right that it's set in present day with present-day gadgets and present-day cars? I think they take the element of "time" out of the equation as much as possible, but somethings just can't be helped.)


So yeah. Indiana Jones for another 30 years...but maybe it's time for Harrison Ford to step down. Leonardo DiCaprio might make a pretty archeologist. Or maybe someone a little more rugged...like James Denton. Oooo...he would make a very handsome vine-swinging, khaki-and-leather-clad, daredevil professor of archeology. But John Rhys-Davies can stay on a little longer...just like Judi Dench has surpassed Pierce Brosnan.


Anyone else have a suggestion for a replacement Indy?


Oh, and this list is just cool. And by cool, I mean geeky.

Ooo!

Shia LaBeouf will be playing Indy's son in the next Indiana Jones movie!!!

How freakin' sweet?

I knew he was going to be in it, but it's SO much better that he's playing Indy's son (and thus, Henry's grandson). See, I'm thinking into the future...like...a sequel in which boy Jones follows in daddy's footsteps. 'Cause I'd see those. I really miss a good action/adventure flick.

I really like Shia LaBeouf, and I'm glad he's getting into serious films. Don't get me wrong, I love "Even Stevens," but I like that he's expanding his horizons. I haven't yet seen Bobby or A Guide to Recognizing Your Saints, but I will once they come out on DVD.

Also, Pierce Brosnan will be starring opposite Meryl Streep in the movie version of Mamma Mia! I'm not sure it will be as spectacular as the stage version, but it's sure to be fun and campy (if they try to make it serious, I'll protest).
