I really thought Legendary was going to try to bury this and write it off as a casualty of their switch from WB to Universal. But no…come February, we will get to see The Dude do his best Ian McKellen impersonation (SPOILER: “Best” is an extremely relative term here).
“From the production company that brought you 300: Rise of an Empire.”
Seriously? Did you think touting all the acting awards won by the various cast members would just feel like a joke given how bad they look in this so far? It feels like Nicolas Cage looked at the script and decided to pass because he’d rather work with Hayden Christensen.
I’m kind of perversely interested now. Watch the trailer and you tell me if I’m crazy.
