Quaid talks G.I. Joe
Dennis Quaid has been giving a few comments about the upcoming G.I. Joe film and reveals, at least to me anyway, that this is going to be as deep and as exciting as I first thought - that is tongue in cheek by the way.
He also says that he's signed up for the trilogy, fully expecting his character to be taken forward and expanded upon in the upcoming films.
"Hopefully, there's going to be two more after this. I don't really have a lot to do here in the first one. I really signed up for the future as well…
… I have no romances, but my aide-de-camp is a Victoria's Secret supermodel, Carolina Kournikova, her name is Cover Girl, so it can't be too serious. It's a little bit like the cartoon show and it's a little bit like a modern action film, and it's also a little like James Bond old-style back in the '60s with Specter taking over an island for it's own criminal country and a threat to the entire world. It's somewhat tongue-in-cheek and great action and it just seems like a lot of fun. I just wanted to be a part of it."
The comments from from First Showing. Yep, that's pretty much how I thought it would be, perhaps more Man from U.N.C.L.E. than Bond I would think, and that's the way that I can see G.I. Joe working, particularly outside of the U.S.
I still see this as an odd choice for Quaid, particularly as it will come hot on the heels of his starring role in Vantage Point.
