Movies Steven Seagal Is To 'Rescue' 'The Yakuza'

[Tue November 26, 2002 08:45PM]

Steven Seagal has just closed deals to star in a remake of the 1975 thriller "The Yakuza," and as a former Vietnam veteran in "The Rescue." Seagal will be paid $4 million for each film, reports Variety.

"The Yakuza" was originally scripted by Paul Schrader and Robert Towne and directed by Sydney Pollack. It starred Robert Mitchum and merged Japanese lore with the saga of gangsters kidnapping the daughter of an L.A. shipping magnate.

In "The Rescue," Seagal will play a former Vietnam vet who begins exchanging letters with an orphan in Eastern Europe that he's helping out financially. When the letters cease, he heads to Europe to find out what happened to the child.

Both projects are set up at Warner Bros.-based Franchise Pictures.

Be your self...

Well, Mr. Seagal have a lot to do now.....busy man! :)

"The Rescue" sounds very intresting.....a little softer movie that I think will suit Steven well.

That is really good news. It is really great that he is making
so many films, even if some go straight to video at least
we get a chance to see him.

O I guess I forgot to mention this is Aggie, I finally broke down
and decided to post from the office. I seem to be here all the
time and don't feel like going on my computer from home.

So hello to all of my friends.



Smile dammit!
Welcome Aggie. Do you remember me from the old place? (Yes i know i'm not always Mr. Nice!)

Mama San

warmer there in Houston, than it is here in
God bless,
