Guy Pearce has been cast as Aldrich Killian in Iron Man 3, a little nougat that rocks out on several levels. Firstly, Pearce is fantastic. Secondly, it confirms the whole Extremis storyline.
This piece of viral rocket has been tearing up the geek bandwidth all damn day. While I was in class. Watch Guy Pearce give a TED Talk as his character from Prometheus. But more than that!, the explicit connection between Prometheus and Alien hinges on said dude bro.
Hit the jump for the video. The info. The shiznit.
The first half an hour of Taken was some of the worst shit I’ve ever watched. Sort of in a good way. However. A big however. What followed it was some of the most ridiculous, over-the-top, awesome, non-sensical shit I’ve ever seen. Loved it. Are you with me? Yeah! Then how would you like Taken In Space! Well, it’s coming. Sort of.
Luc Besson, writer/producer of Taken, is putting Maggie Grace back in danger – but this time she’s in a SPACE PRISON! It’s called Lockout. We’re in, as long as Lockout has as many throat punches as Taken did.
Deadline is reporting that Maggie Grace has signed on to play the role of our future president’s daughter. But wait, there’s a twist, featuring Guy Pearce:
Guy Pearce is attached to play a man wrongly convicted of conspiracy to commit espionage against the U.S. He’s offered his freedom if he can rescue the president’s daughter from an outer space prison taken over by violent inmates.
How fucking amazing is that premise? I’m sold man. Sold. Here’s hoping that Maggie Grace plays a character that actually warrants saving this time around. I mean, jesus christ! In Taken she was just some petulant little bitch, who betrayed her obviously awesome Dad and ran headlong into danger. He should have rescued her ass and then grounded her for fucking life.
