You didn't show up at the casting meeting, and decisions had to be made...................

Michael Mann (Heat) created the show in the first place, and now he's directing the movie. He can do as he pleases, as far as I'm concerned. It was his show, and now it's his movie. It's like being pissed at Stephen King for making a movie from Cujo.

Starsky & Hutch was always a fuckin joke, Miami Vice, while reeking of 80s trends, was a fairly dark show, and if anyone was to remake it and have it NOT suck, id say Mann would be the man, ha.

Buttheads? Sure they're not "doo-doo heads"?

Just an odd way to put it if you're over 12 y.o.

So is Tom Cruise, but Collateral was pretty good.

Michael Mann made the original series as well. It's his show. Michael Mann is great. Heat, Last of the Mohicans, Collateral. All good movies. He's one of my favorite writers/directors these days.
Link Posted: 3/3/2006 6:53:54 PM EDT
this is sacreligious! remaking miami vice is like rewriting the bible. what's next, scarface II?

i wish hollyweird would go back to actually writing movies and devising original concepts instead of trying to remake every single show ever broadcast on any network.

i can't wait for "goodtimes, the movie" , "that's my mamma--mamma's revenge" "the a-team goes to the zoo". whatever.
Link Posted: 3/3/2006 11:42:06 PM EDT
If you see the trailer, there are some prints of Michael Mann in a lot of scene. Like parking under the freeway, helicopter over sea of city lights, and night club scenes.

I won't be surprised that Michael Mann is working on this with his soul on it. This was his idea in 80s and this is his child. Of course this is also his cash cow

I'm not a big fan of either Colin or Foxx, but I was wrong about Tom Cruise in collateral, so I'll wait and see. Look at how the actors are acting, not at their extracurricular activity.

Hollywood is looking for some cheap thrills. Most of the development of the story has already been done, so therefore these remake movies are a lot cheaper to produce, since many of the younger people weren't born or too young when to remember whe these TV shows were in its heydays, why not?

Somebody always says this in every thread about the new Miami Vice movie. It's directed by Michael Mann. That should end all doubts about the quality of the gun stuff in the movie.

So you dont know shit, is that it?

Michael Mann is at the helm so STFU noob

How can anyone take pompus jerk Collin Farrell seriously? He's one of the worst actors to hit the big screen in years. At least Jamie Foxx can act.
Link Posted: 3/4/2006 3:06:46 AM EDT
Well 2 assholes replace the 2 originals..

From what I have read the cast is going tru some intense firearms training. From what I have read Sonnys weapon is a full tricked out SVI. If you head over to Miami-vice.org. The guy that runs the website is working on the film. He posts all kinds of pics in the forum.

I feared the worst when I first of this as well, not a fan of either main actor. But then I saw the teaser trailer (www.apple.com/trailers/universal/miamivice/)and it looks to be pure Micheal Mann goodness. I'm really looking forward to it now... Looks like some sweet hardware and action to me.

I always hated the original Tubbs, so I figure Foxx is an improvement anyway there. Farrell or however you spell it looks to be a decent Crocket, has most of the image down anyway.

at least M. Mann is doing it, but it's still going to suck goat balls

I really need for Sonny's primary weapon to be a 10mm.

+1

I have complete trust in Michael Mann on this one.

I cannot stand "Colon" Farrell, but I don't think that MM can make a bad movie.

I think everyone will be pleasantly surprised by the Miami Vice movie.

Hell, they use a SIG death dealing black rifle in the movie, that alone gives it crediblity....

Can't get the trailer to work....

I will trust in Mann.
He may like pastels too much, but other than that he is a good director.

I will check the movie out. I have a bigger problem with Fox than Farrel, but this is how Hollywood works. Cast the hot actors.

And Foxx was pretty good in Collateral.

The Sawyer guy from Lost would have made a better Crocket.

I was watching the first season of Lost the other day and thought that Josh Holloway ("Sawyer") would be an awesome Sonny. He's got the look, the voice, the mannerisms. I can't stand fucking Colon Feral.

No, its like being pissed at Stephen King for remaing Cujo with a gay french poodle as the dog.

This pic alone is reason enough to avoid the movie. CF looks retarded.

That trailer looks awesome.

I have faith in Michael Mann.........

Just as long as there is a 10mm in it...

The plot sounds pretty stupid too,

Micheal Mann is returning to his roots. Trust me he will not screw this up. Also he is already 20 million over budget. More than likely this film will cost about 145 million when completed.

I just hope it's not over-the-top-stupid....like....jumping an Enzo Ferrari off of a pier onto a cigarette boat so you can climb onto the ladder being dangled out of a helicopter to rescue your partner only to jump out of the helo in the nick of time, right before it crashes into a highly fragmentary and spectacularly explosive structure.

I hate that kind of shit.

ANd Anthony Yerkovich is also working on the film. Seems that he would keep it true to the roots of the show....

Oh no! Not another "Band of the Hand"!

This movie is going to ROCK!!!!

I read on a Miami Vice board that Michael Mann made Sonny and Tubbs take weapons training. They will be using SIG 552s and other SIG handguns.

Mann re shot a scene where a Chrysler is shot by a 50BMG. The scene was first done with high tech graphics. Mann did not think it looked real...so he brought the car to a FL Police department rifle range and had the car shot up with a real 50 BMG rifle.


Sounds like it will be the best movie of the summer to me.

I bet it has a less than 6 week theater run, and it'll be on video by 8 wks. Should probably go straight to video.

While this should make for a good movie - it will also add urban myth to the anti-50cal haters...
Link Posted: 3/4/2006 1:25:00 PM EDT
Fox and Farrel are both very talented actors and I have 100% confidence in Michael Mann.

I don't know of any actor out there who would be a better Tubbs than Jamie Fox, but I think Keifer Sutherland would have been a better choice for Sonny Crocket.
