. . . it's not a remake.

I was thinking the same thing.

Me too; I was literally just about to get all Hulk on the Empire website...although I do wonder how Bloom still manages to get work (although until Danny Dyer retires he won't be the worst actor in the world I guess)


I just wish stuff like, I don't know, the slow & systemic CRATERING of this country could inspire the same call-to-arms as Batman casting

I got rather excited reading the title, assuming this was the long mooted remake to be told from the Zulus perspective that has been floating around for ages. Sadly not.


And I heard a voice in the midst of the four beasts
And I looked and behold, a pale horse
And his name that sat on him was Death
And Hell followed with him.

Phew! That was close. They could never remake the original. The cast and John Barry's awesome score made that film unique. Can't be topped.

I happen to think Bloom was well cast in LOTR and he sure made me laugh on EXTRAS, but in general I find him to be rather insufferable, and he nearly ruined KINGDOM OF HEAVEN, something I'll never be able to overlook. I'll admit I've not yet seen THREE MUSKETEERS, but in general his casting is never a good sign, as far as I'm concerned.

Last but not least, I too am glad they're not attempting to 'reboot' ZULU, though I am sad that they've missed out on the opportunity to reteam DiCaprio and Hounsou. I thought DiCaprio was cracking in BLOOD DIAMOND, and I'd love to see him again in a role where he gets to use his unique African accent.
