Fine... Then don't believe me. I am just telling you guys what the producer told me. I think I'll stop posting updates regarding this project if this is the way my updates get treated.... No offense

Updates don't really count for much if we have to fill in the blanks ourselves.

And if a 3.5 mill project can be made to look like a 20 mill project, then why would any production ever bother spending 20 mill?

Danny Trejo is in everything - would be more surprised if he wasn't in it.

Would is it then? Spielberg or Cameron?

Or maybe a certain guy who did a trio of lacklustre remakes...

Fill in the blanks yourselves? I gave many updates in the last few years where you did not have to fill in the blanks. But as I said, if you don't want updates or if they are not good enough for you (like in this case) then I will stop sharing.

By the way , It seems that producer Matt Clark is sharing the name of the director with other people as well. Forrest Taft seems to already know who it is and so is Gabe3407. So I as well can share his name.

The director who will probably direct The Legend of Johnny Jones is:

Marcus Nispel (The Texas Chainsaw Massacre, Friday The 13th, Conan the Barbarian).

Didn't take much working out from the dates.

Would be surprised if even he was involved, but then the tired remake of Conan did bomb so maybe times are tough.

As much as I'd love to see Seagal on the big screen again (my last experience being Machete) I'll happily eat my hat if this ends up in more than ten theatres.

Please don't stop with the updates. I think most here really apreciate them and they are very interesting.

The director update is indeed promising. Hopefully it will work out.

Also, is it correct that Seagal should be the main actor in this movie?

We get better updates from you on Seagal than from the media or any company Seagal is working with so please don’t ever stop

I have just been told that Seagal is the lead character.
i guessed it was marcus nispel when you said the dates but i was not sure he woluld do it however his last film was 2015 so maybe

he had 4 big movies texas chainsaw,friday 13th,pathfinder and conan so hes used to big budgets so see how he does with 3-4m budget

also remember that some of the blumhouse films are like 5m only so it can be done

keep the updates and is nispel still the director?

also id the imdb cast the same or with nispel directing can they get a better cast?

i noticed stephen lang(fire down below) worked with nispel twice and also seagal twice he would be a decent actor to get on this

That's all I know for now. Let's hope the shooting can start in february and that it doesn't get delayed due to Covid or other things

He told me they will film in May and the release date is still october....That gives the very little time for post-production and marketing.....
I will check with him about Seagal

I checked and Seagal is indeed out. Not because of Seagal and not because of Matt Clark, he said. The distribution company said he wouldn't fit the part. So they let him go....

I for one am glad if Seagal is no longer involved, had absolutely zero interest in seeing this movie anyway.

Oscar worthy :)

I for one will be on the "edge of my seat" when this one plays. The edge of my seat at home watching something else.
