Hopefully.

Now this is a crowd-funded project that I can get behind. A man named Larry Shepard is using Kickstarter to solve a problem we all suffer from everyday: creating more Breaking Bad. However, with no film or television experience, his ideas are a little unorthodox. Good Lord, where do I begin?

Shepard is imagining a sequel series that picks up directly after the final scene of the sorely missed series. His show presumably will introduce all new characters who will be played by Val Kilmer, Slash, Laura San Giacomo, and Jana Mashonee if they are interested. The roles are theirs to lose. And also to write apparently as Shepard wants to allow the actors to build their characters and improvise their own dialogue. Same goes for the guest stars that Shepard would like to call upon. He’s expressed interest in Russell Brand, Jamie Lee Curtis, Steven Tyler, Dick Van Dyke, Drew Barrymore, Robert Downey Jr., Robin Williams, Neil Young, and Eminem as they all have histories of substance abuse issues.

This project might seem beneath stars of their stature but if that bothers them, they’re more than welcome to wear masks. Shepard elaborates:

These will be guest appearances on separate episodes, and the star would be told that all the dialogue they use will be completely created by them. Some guest stars will be in full make up/prosthetics throughout the show, and we will only reveal who they are at the end! Think of ‘The List of Adrian Messenger’ movie. When they appear in the intro, the tag line will say: Guest Starring? They of course are fugitives that Kilmer and Slash are chasing, who have had plastic surgery!

I implore you to check out the promo video. With less than a thousand dollars donated toward his $500,000 goal, it’s unlikely this project will see the light of day. If there is any good to come of this, I feel like this guy should get to meet Slash.

Tom Cruise And Val Kilmer Are Both Game For A ‘Top Gun’ Sequel http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/tom-cruise-and-val-kilmer-are-both-game-for-a-top-gun-sequel/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/tom-cruise-and-val-kilmer-are-both-game-for-a-top-gun-sequel/#comments Wed, 13 Jun 2012 15:38:26 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=249216 The new "Danger Zone" is any spot on a straight line between Val Kilmer and the craft services table.

So if you wanted to see an updated volleyball scene where Iceman’s dogtags dangle between his man-breasts: this is your Woodstock.

Tom Cruise, while doing publicity for Rock of Ages, was asked about a Top Gun sequel and replied, “It would be fun getting into those jets. I want to fly those jets!” in a way that you think you’re imagining Tom Cruise saying it, but really you’re imagining Ben Stiller doing an impression of Tom Cruise saying it.

Val Kilmer, in a different, non-Rock of Ages interview, placed a big ole’ elephant in the room, then told everyone to ignore it as he claimed,”Sure, it would be fun. I’d have to get a haircut, but anything for the role!”

In that scenario, I imagine the interviewer beginning to choke, even though they weren’t eating anything at the time. In converse fashion, Kilmer would produce a giant bucket of sauce-laden meatballs which he would casually eat, and then the interview would end.

7 Real-Life Cowboys Who Got The Hollywood Treatment http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/7-real-life-cowboys-who-got-the-hollywood-treatment/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-lists/7-real-life-cowboys-who-got-the-hollywood-treatment/#comments Tue, 28 Feb 2012 17:00:55 +0000 Joseph Gibson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=245306 In honor of Wyatt Earp's Revenge...

The post 7 Real-Life Cowboys Who Got The Hollywood Treatment appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Cowboys are great subjects for movies. They lead lives of excitement and danger, get into bar fights, and use colorful expressions such as “y’all” and “howdy.” And sometimes, a cowboy’s allure becomes so great that he has a movie (or six) made about his life. These seven real-life cowboys have tasted a bit of that Hollywood fame – yee-haw! And be sure and check out Wyatt Earp’s Revenge, which tells the untold pre-O.K. Corral story of the legendary lawman and his adventures with the best of the west (available on DVD March 6th).

Wyatt Earp

Wyatt Earp is probably the cowboy that’s had the most movies about him. His famous “gunfight at the OK Corral” has been adapted by everyone from John Sturges to John Ford, and has been played by everyone from Kurt Russell to Randolph Scott – he’s even set to be portrayed by Harrison Ford AND Val Kilmer in two separate upcoming projects.

Jesse James

One of American history‘s most notorious outlaws, Jesse James has also been the subject of several films. He was even played by his own son, Jesse James, Jr., in two silent films in the 1920s. Reed Hadley played him in Samuel Fuller’s I Shot Jesse James, and he was most recently played by none other than Brad Pitt in the critically acclaimed (and fantastic) The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.

9 Celebrities Who Look Like Chaz Bono http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-lists/9-celebrities-who-look-like-chaz-bono/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-lists/9-celebrities-who-look-like-chaz-bono/#comments Wed, 21 Sep 2011 17:27:52 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=229417 He's got one of those faces.

Much to the chagrin of many viewers, Chaz Bono (formerly Chastity) made his appearance on Dancing With The Stars this week. A firestorm of controversy erupted when the transgender star was announced as a member of this season’s cast with some devoted viewers boycotting the program, and others applauding the casting.

We here at Screen Junkies don’t watch the show because we were naturally blessed with two hype feet and fly off into a rage whenever we hear the voice of Tom Bergeron. Therefore, we don’t really have an opinion on this matter beyond, “What’s the big deal?”

He was a she and now he’s wearing a stylish vest and squaring off against Nancy Grace. There’s no harm in that. Besides, there are several beloved celebrities who resemble Chaz Bono. For instance….

Val Kilmer

He’ll be starring in movies alongside 50 Cent in no time.

John Goodman

Mostly it’s the shirt. Chaz should hold on to that in case he wants to be Dan Tanner for Halloween.

Kevin Smith

There’s no way they’d be able to sit next to one another on the same flight.

Francis Ford Coppola’s ‘Twixt’ Trailer Looks Weird http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/francis-ford-coppolas-twixt-trailer-looks-weird/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/video/francis-ford-coppolas-twixt-trailer-looks-weird/#comments Tue, 02 Aug 2011 19:28:40 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?post_type=video&p=223159 Yikes.

Francis Ford Coppola has proven himself as an auteur whose indelible mark has changed the face of storytelling in film. His influence can still be found today in many popular films and movies. Which leads me to ask, what the hell is this?

After watching this trailer for Twixt, I’m just not sure what Coppola’s intent is. Is he trying to strip Troll 2 of its best worst movie title? Not cool, man. Those Best Worst Movie guys already printed up all those posters! Anyway, check it out. It’s pretty weird. Val Kilmer plays a crappy horror writer investigating mysterious deaths in a small town, but the whole thing reads like it was produced by a teenager going through their Stephen King phase.

Now if you’ll excuse me, I’ve got a serious craving for a Twix.

Gina Gershon And The Guys That Ate Ray Liotta And Val Kilmer To Star In ‘Breathless’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/gina-gershon-and-the-guys-that-ate-ray-liotta-and-val-kilmer-to-star-in-breathless/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/gina-gershon-and-the-guys-that-ate-ray-liotta-and-val-kilmer-to-star-in-breathless/#comments Mon, 25 Jul 2011 19:53:45 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=221945 'Breathless': Not just how Val Kilmer feels after climbing a flight of stairs.

With a cast like this, there’s no question that this will be one of the most popular films of 1993. Gina Gershon, Ray Liotta, and Val Kilmer have all signed on for Jess Baget’s Breathless. The film focuses on a woman (Gershon) who is sick of her husband’s (Kilmer) criminal acts and decides to do something about it. Ray Liotta will play a sheriff who gets in the mix one way or another.

Going on that description, it’s pretty clear that this film won’t be a remake (or re-imagining, or gritty reboot) of Jean-Luc Goddard’s vaunted work of the same name. Which is good, because Gina Gershon probably shouldn’t be allowed too close to anything considered a “classic.”

Baget also co-wrote the script with Stefania Moscato. And no, Kilmer wasn’t required to gain weight for the role. That’s just the way he looks now. Oh how the mighty have fallen, Iceman.

Val Kilmer And Ving Rhames Are Trapped In A Time Warp http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/val-kilmer-and-ving-rhames-are-trapped-in-a-time-warp/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/val-kilmer-and-ving-rhames-are-trapped-in-a-time-warp/#comments Wed, 06 Jul 2011 14:58:56 +0000 Wookie Johnson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=219031 The pair will be time-traveling AND ghostbusting in the film 'Seven Below'.

Val Kilmer and Ving Rhames have snagged the lead roles in a film that shockingly doesn’t also star 50 Cent. In the indie thriller Seven Below, Kilmer, Rhames, Luke Goss and Rebecca Da Costa will star as strangers brought together when a terrible storm leaves them stranded in a house in the middle of the woods. A terrible event occurred in the same house 100 years earlier and the strangers find themselves in a ghostly time warp as history continues to repeat itself.

Sounds a little run of the mill but the idea of Val Kilmer and Ving Rhames playing time-traveling ghostbusters has promise. Even only they’d pitched it a little bit differently. (Variety)

Val Kilmer and westerns have a lot in common. They both used to be hugely popular in America, whereas now they both have more of a niche following. They both have the potential for everything between unforgettable badassery and unforgivable lameness. And they both seem kind of homoerotic sometimes. Well, now the western and Val Kilmer are having a reunion of sorts, after Kilmer famously played Doc Holliday in the popular western Tombstone. This project is unfortunately not called Gay Perry Goes West, but The First Ride of Wyatt Earp, which:

”[F]inds an elderly Earp sitting down with a reporter to reflect on the ride that made him a legend, when the young marshal rounded up a posse to track down the outlaw who mistakenly murdered the woman he loved.”

The weird part about this is that he’s supposed to play Wyatt Earp, but it seems to me he’s kind of in a no-man’s land as far as age is concerned – too young to play an elderly Wyatt Earp, and too old to be a young one. It will be interesting to see how this is handled in the movie. (via /Film)

Remember how awesome Real Genius was? Like when there was a guy who had a crazy laboratory in Val Kilmer‘s closet? Or when they filled the evil professor’s house with popcorn? Or that kickass laser they were working on? Well, good news, Real Genius fans: Val Kilmer and Jon “Closet Guy” Gries are starring in a new movie together. Also, bad news, Real Genius fans: it’s an emotional drama that has nothing to do with Real Genius or even lasers.

The indie drama / bio pic Deep In The Heart tells the story of real-life, really-rich Texas businessman Richard Wallrath (Gries), who struggles with alcoholism and eventually becomes a philanthropist. A really big philanthropist too, if you get what I’m saying. Kilmer plays “The Bearded Man” — and how you can write a serious movie script and keep a straight face when you keep typing “The Bearded Man” over and over again is beyond me — a “Christ-like figure” who gets Wallrath off the sauce.

The film will be directed by Christopher Cain (Young Guns, but more importantly, The Amazing Panda Adventure) and will feature a cameo by Texas Governor Rick Perry. In Perry’s scene, he plays himself in a re-enactment of an awards ceremony he hosted in real life. Hopefully, the Academy will start giving awards for re-enactments of real life award scenes in cinema. (Hollywood Reporter)
