Shia Not New Indy, George Lucas Insists

In an apparent turnaround from his previous insinuation that Shia LaBeouf’s character Mutt from Indy IV might take over the franchise, George Lucas now insists that is not the way it’s going to go down.

“No no no no, dear heavens no, no no no no no no,” Lucas was reported to have said.

He also reportedly said,

“No no no no no no no no golly no.”

Meanwhile, LaBeouf continues to recover from a car accident that left his fingers crushed and his arm temporarily out-of-commission:

We’re pulling for you, Shia.

Michael Moore Parody “An American Carol”

David Zucker, best known for the movies Airplane and Top Secret, has a new wacky comedy coming out in October: “An American Carol.” Just in time for the last month of Election Madness, this politically-topical film features a parody of filmmaker Michael Moore — named Michael Malone — who has to be taught the real meaning of patriotism by the ghosts of America’s most famous personages.

But is this film going to be a little extreme? Here is a description of one scene in the film:

In a climactic scene, Moore’s stand-in (here named “Michael Malone”) finds political clarity at the smoking ruins of the World Trade Center while the admonishing ghost of George Washington (played by Jon Voight) hovers nearby.”

Is this being played for laughs? Is it just a pointed partisan attack on Moore in the guise of a wacky comedy movie? Will the 911 scene be considered in bad taste?

We’ll see.

Postscript: Playing the fake Michael Moore in the film is Kevin Farley — brother of the late Chris Farley.

China Loves And Hates Kung-Fu Panda

“Kung-Fu Panda” is the highest grossing movie in China right now — but it’s also pissing a lot of people off.

At issue is the fact that their national animal is being depicted as…well, as Jack Black. A bit of a lout, a bit of a slacker. Not respectful enough.

Other sticking points are things like racy content, lack of reverence for elders, and “too much imagination.”

It’s gotten so controversial that one prominent Chinese artist, Zhao Bandi, is actually suing Dreamworks for misrepresentation of his beloved national symbol.

From Variety:

“Zhao, who likes to carry a stuffed panda around with him and whose art is all based on pandas, says the fact that Po’s father in the film is a duck is an insult to all Chinese and also the panda’s eyes are green, which is an evil color.”

Trailer: Oliver Stone’s Bush Biopic “W”

I was a big fan of Oliver Stone’s earlier stuff like “Platoon” and “JFK,” so I’m wondering how this film’ll be. Initial impression: the way it’s presented in this trailer, it’s like a stoner from an 80’s comedy eventually became president of the United States.
