Comments on: It’s Joel Edgerton’s Turn To Be Rumored For ‘Bourne’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/its-joel-edgertons-turn-to-be-rumored-for-bourne/ Movie Reviews & TV Show Reviews Wed, 22 Jan 2014 14:54:30 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.3.1 By: Jug http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/its-joel-edgertons-turn-to-be-rumored-for-bourne/#comment-108838 Jug Thu, 21 Apr 2011 23:25:00 +0000 http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=208231#comment-108838 Honestly, this is a stupid inside Hollywood discussion. One to make people feel better about spending millions on rebooting a franchise. Because the truth is, NONE of the names mentioned people give a care about. They are names in essence only, not in "I MUST see that movie opening weekend". That is no slight to these dudes, they're all good actors actually (yes, even Shia has his moments), but it's more about the "IT" boy-ism that Hollywood is obsessed with. Shia's name getting dropped on a street in Texas or Florida or Alaska without Transformers attached to it will NOT get people beating down the door to the multiplex (WALL STREET 2-$52 Mil US vs a Gazillion for Transformers & Indy 4). Again, not his fault, just saying the strength & pull of the actor themselves isn't there, so why have the discussion? It's BOURNE for crying out loud. The whole point of the reboot story is that ANYONE can be Bourne, so WHY do we need a goddamn name?!? It's the "franchise" that carries weight, not the "name". Hollywood is so full of itself sometimes, it's disgusting. On a side note, not one ethnic face in the bunch..damn, can we at least get an ambiguous Mediterranean looking dude..where's Nestor Carbonell when you need him?
