Silver Surfer is washed seems.

Alex Proyas, one of the few directors out there who seems to have an idea when it comes to the "outer space" of science fiction films, turned down an offer from 20th century fox to helm "Silver Surfer", which has been in some sort of limbo since the last FF movie. 20th Century Fox unfortunatly is the loser this year when it comes to not just a box office hit for any of their "tentpole" attractions but for all of their films this year as well. The term "not cutting the mustard" would be a more reasonable term for their lack at the multiplex.
Now to put more oil unto the fire, Proyas backing out or jumping ship, couldn't come at a worse time for the company as they are also in the middle of a lawsuit with Warner Bros. over the rights to "the WATCHMEN", which is practically done shooting and is to be released in march of next year.
Next year, from my understanding, the only big pic from them is XMEN ORIGINS:WOLVERINE.....hopefully they didn't screw that up, too.....

lists and notes

Movies or T.V. Series, I'd like made before I Die:

-"Planetary" based on the comic book by Warren Ellis
-"Top Ten"
-A worthy sequel to "The Thing",and
Kurt Russell has to be in it
-"100 Bullets"
-"Stray Bullets", and it has to be filmed in Baltimore.Period.
-"Liberty Meadows", rated R, and filmed like "Garfield"
-"The Avengers"
-An "Uncanny X-men" television series instead of some overblown film, done ala "Smallville"
-A "Star Wars" television series that explores not only stories about other characters inbetween the film series and history of the series but also the "What if's" as well.
-"Justice League"
-"Star Wars" 7,8,9 and maybe 10,11,12....
-HellBlazer movie or tv series,preferbly with an English Actor
-"Man on Fire" sequel.. Do you hear me Tony Scott!!! It was Denzel's best movie dammit!
