Kind of left field Wow, Well, when I first heard this news that Takosk (ok, not even goign to try and spell it) was going to direct, that really came out of left field for me. I thought they actually might go back to Frank. Since he directed the first on. I wonder, if they are, in any capacity, going to get his input on the film. It seems to me, that they would need it. And you all are right, this isn' just a movie, its a freaken world. They had a little over 5 years to develop it the first time, now, less then that considerably. Granted a lot of the ground work is there, nevertheless, if they don't let it live and breath, this could be the biggest flop and disappointment. Which would be horrible. Nevertheless, I'm starting to get a little mroe excited about it. HOWEVER. If they don't get Trevor Jones, this film will not be the same. That sound was so unique and inspiring (still one of my most cherished soundtracks) I still listen to it today, and find myself humming or whistling it at the most random times. They NEED to get Trevor Jones. He is the blood in the veins, so to speak, he gave life to everything in that world. Ok, before I write a book, im going to stop. I'm just hoping Trevor's up to it.
