I haven’t been this excited about a movie since Pirates of the Caribbean 3!!!
Actually, that wasn’t too long ago, but you get what I mean. It already had all the right elements – sci-fi/fantasy, the conflict between Homo superior vs. Those Who Fear What They Cannot Understand, Samuel L. Jackson and Hayden Christensen! And then, then they add Rachel Bilson (a.k.a. Summer from the O.C.) into the cast!
Here are the screen shots from the official website. Feast your eyes!
Hayden as David (the lead Jumper), somewhere in Egypt. Intense!
Bad-ass SLJ as Roland, the Chief Head-Hunter of the Jumpers (a.k.a. Paladins).
The lovely Rachel Bilson as - shock! - David's love interest Millie. *g*
There's also a co-Jumper called Griffin, David's long-lost mother and a couple of redshirts. *g*
ETA: Of course there a few detractors at IMDB wanted to bash HC as the worst choice for David *sigh* but over all, most people came to his defence and even got the OP to eat some of her words. In fact, people seem psyched for the movie! And I haven't even read the books! I. Can't. Wait. *g*
ETA: Check out the new Millie icon!
