Just in case you haven’t already heard, Charlize Theron has been tapped to play the lead role in Jinx. No, don’t panic. This is not the same Jinx played by Halle Berry opposite Pierce Brosnan in the James Bond flick Die Another Day. This movie is based on a character created by Brian Michael Bendis and his comic book world Jinxworld. Miss Theron will play the comic book bounty hunter Jinx. If you saw her in Aeon Flux you already know she can kick butt while looking great in a poured on vinyl suit. This movie is just one of many comic book creations coming to life and looming large on the big screen. What fun, what fun. Will you check it out? Has anyone ever even heard of this comic book series before? Hollywood is like a hungry marauder searching for treasure on every land mass. They can’t turn books of all kinds into movies fast enough. (I love it even though it’s alarming!) I wonder if the voracious Big H machine is ever in danger of running out of fodder? There is soooo much money to be made plundering comic book territory. Have you seen the size of the Marvel Universe alone? What’s next I wonder?
~P.S.~ Can y’all say The Spirit, due out Christmas day. That dude knows how to roll. Just check out his mask and tie. Very classic. I’m beginning to think all these comic book creators, story writers and illustrators are planning to take over the world. Remember that Brad Pitt movie, Cool World? Nowadays, cartoons are real in Hollywood. Go figure.
