Made a wax statue of him.

I really hope he doesn't ditch wrestling for Hollywood. But it looks like it more and more everyday.

Well Kawshen, if you don't want him to ditch wrestling you better hope that Scorpion King is going to be the big ass flop its going to be.

I don't think Scorpion King is going to flop. I guess it depends on what you mean by flop. Box office flop? Critical flop? Both? Movie critics might not like it but it's not really being geared towards them. It has been promoted well and with the recent trend of unusaly high opening weekends for this time of year, weekend one could bring in some large numbers for sure. If it does make good money i bet people like Eric S., who have been calling it a bomb for three months, are going to give no credit to Rock and all credit to the heavy promotion it got.



Ouch.

Ok, that picture is just plain wrong. [Does his best gay Rocky form SNL]"You big ssssslut!"

As for Rocky the famous. Well i wouldn't worry too much. Scorpion King may do well, but the next movie he's signed on for I believe is called "Hellderado."

If that don't kill his career, nothing will.

Well, I think five out of five wrestling fans would go see a movie called "Hellderado" before seeing "Santa With Muscles."

Hellderado, what's that about? If it is inspired by Grim Fandango and El Kabong, then it might work.

WHOA! I had to do a double take on that picture. For a second, I thought The Rock was laying a smooch on a clean-shaven Buff Bagwell.

Actually, critics have generally been laying the praise in pretty thick for Rock and Scorpion King. They say it's the perfect action/popcorn movie. Not big on the plot, but big on the swordfighting and violence.

Sounds alright to me, and it also sounds like something people (even the non-wrestling audience) would go see. Rock or no Rock.

If not for the fact that a) a statue of the Rock wouldn't be put in a kissing pose like that and 2) the statue was so shiny, I wouldn't have known which was which.

Poor Rocky. He must REALLY want to be in Hollywood if he signed up for 'Hellderado'. Here's the news blip from IGNFilmforce:

The Rock chooses his next project, Helldorado for Universal.

April 17, 2002 - The Rock makes his feature film debut in a leading role on Friday when The Scorpion King arrives in theaters, but he's already lining up his follow-up project. According to The Hollywood Reporter, the wrestler-turned-thesp will headline the Universal-based action-adventure Helldorado. The film is described as a modern-day tale about a bounty hunter who travels to the Amazon jungle to settle a debt. But when he realizes his target isn't the bad guy he thought he was, the two join forces to search for hidden riches in the area.

Actor-turned-director Peter Berg is in talks to helm the picture. Helldorado would be his second stint in the director's chair, having directed 1998's Very Bad Things.

The screenplay was penned by writer R.J. Stewart (Xena: Warrior Princess, Major League II) and subsequently rewritten by James Vanderbilt (John McTiernan's forthcoming film Basic).


Sounds like the deck is stacked against that being a good movie. I mean, who the hell would want the Director of "Very Bad Things"?!? He had all the comedic talent in that movie, and the best they could do is emulate the title. Bleh.

Hey, "Very Bad Things" wasn't very bad...it was just regularly bad. And "Scorpion King" is gonna be fun bad, b-movie bad, and that's the way it's designed. Drugs are the only way that movie's gonna be totally satisfying and entertaining... Hmm... Drugs, eh...

It'll be fun in the syle of "Conan the Barbarian," but there NO way Rock could sell that "Lamentations of their women" line like Arnold.

Alas.
