Now out promoting his new film "Hannibal Rising", legendary film producer Dino De Laurentis confirmed to NBC30 that he's creating a new franchise with the character.DeLaurentis is also the producer or executive producer behind such iconic films as the 1976 version of "King Kong", "Flash Gordon", "Conan The Barbarian" and the last three Hannibal Lector
De Laurentis quickly stated up front that the new film is "not a remake of 'Barbarella"' but "a completely new 'Barbarella.'"
At present no-one has been cast in the project, and the script is being worked on right now and will incorporate "love, sex, [and] adventure".
Since the casting choice for the lead has not been made, I'd like to humbly offer my suggestion:
Kim Bauer!!!! (aka Elisha Cuthbert)

Here is a list of movies released in 2006, ranked by Total Domestic Gross (TDG).
Let's take the second list first. From that list, I can name the ones that I actually saw (with their TDG ranks):
#1. Pirates of the Carribean: Dead Man's Chest
#3. X-Men: Last Stand
#7. Ice-Age: The Meltdown
#10. Over The Hedge
#18. The Break-Up
#19. Scary Movie 4
#26. Saw III
#29. Charlotte's Web
#39. Rocky Balboa
#44. Flushed Away
#47. Underworld:Evolution (on DVD)
#51. Little Miss Sunshine
#84. Accepted (on DVD)
#92. United 93
#102. Clerks 2
That's it. Obviously as a father of three you can tell that a) I don't go out much and b) I see a lot of movies with my kids. Actually, now that I look at the list I'm surprised I saw as many movies as that.
Now go back to the first list. What you find is a whole lot of movies I haven't seen. Granted the ones on my list aren't all necessarily Oscar-worthy, but there are a handful.
I really liked "Little Miss Sunshine" and I suppose I'll root for that long-shot for Best Picture.
But the motivation for me to sit through a three-plus hour long awards show where a bunch of people, who make a living pretending to be other people, honor each other as if they've solved world hunger or found a cure for AIDS is...?
Dirty Harry at Libertas puts it this way:
I havenÂ’t seen any of these, but for the most part, neither has anyone else. I have actors IÂ’ll root for because of my affection for them, but canÂ’t base that on these particular performances...That sounds about right.
...The Oscars bore me to death. I am thinking about live-blogging them, but that would mean actually watching, so IÂ’m not so sure.
