Re: Hannibal : the Conqueror


NOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO

I heard about this a few years back how Vin Diesel wanted to set this up...then it faded into the mists of obscurity where I hope it would remain firmly.

Don't get me wrong, I'd love to see a movie about Hannibal or the Second Punic War in general, but...Vin Diesel? The only good part he had was in Saving Private Ryan, when he gets shot relatively early on.

Re: Hannibal : the Conqueror


I think the two films regarding the 9th legion next year as well as the film about Hadrian will much more interesting.

Re: Hannibal : the Conqueror


This will be as stimulating as "Troy", where I laughed so hard, I almost gagged on my popcorn.

Oh...the lengths some folks will go to to "look" historical.

Re: Hannibal : the Conqueror


Would Vin Diesel play the role of Hannibal?

According to the IMdb, Yes, with F.Valentino Morales(who?) playing Hasdrubal. What's the betting the Romans will be played by British Actors.
