Clive Cussler movie

Postby Teyaha » Thu Oct 30, 2003 6:18 pm

ok so Sahara by Clive Cussler hits the theaters next fall. so far they've cast dirk, al and eva rojas.

penelope cruz as eva i can see

Steve Zahn as Al Giordino i can see..

but Matthew Mcconaughey as dirk pitt?

hrm may be there's something in his book descriptions that i missed, but i really envisioned Hugh Jackman as the best looking choice to play pitt.

hopefully it wont suck.

Hugh Jackman probably would make a decent Pitt...I agree that the other two choices are at least decent.

What I'm really curious about is why, out of all the Cussler books that have come out in the last 20 years, they decided THIS one would be a good movie?

sahara was one of the most vicious of the pit stories, as was shock wave.

personally i think that dragon would be the best..problem is that nearly all of the cussler books were written during the cold war. they would have to be totally rewritten to be a movie today.

I'm so not looking forward to this. I see such spank potential for this movie.
