Back to the Battleship

“Battleship”, the feature film spin-off of the board game we all played growing up (before moving onto the nifty ‘Computer Battleship’), may be in the can, but it’s is still a good year away from release. According to actress Brooklyn Decker, who plays ‘Sam’ in the uber-expensive tentpole, there’s still quite a bit of work to be done on the sea-set actioner.

Says Decker, “We will do reshoots. We have shot a bunch of alternate endings. There’s a lot of CGI to be done – a lot of stuff in post.”

Reshoots?

“Yes, depending on the storyline and where they want to take it we might be doing some reshoots”, explains the cordial actress.

The picture, which pits the crew of a fleet of ships against a supernatural entity, was directed by actor cum filmmaker Peter Berg.

“He was amazing. We agreed on nearly everything. It’s great when you’re on the same page”, said the model cum actress, in town to cheer on her husband Andy Roddick at the Brisbane International Tennis Tournament in Brisbane. “He is great – and he’s especially great with new actors. He loves it that there’s no ego to protect and we’re all just in there having fun and working together.”

Liam Neeson, who plays Decker’s father in the movie, echoes the 23-year-old acting newcomer’s sentiments. “He said to me, ‘Pete’s one of the better directors I’ve worked with because he gives you direction but he also allows you to be comfortable and free in what you do. And you’ll likely notice that the movie doesn’t feel like it’s this polished super-styled movie, it’s characters in conversation, it feels gritty and real” – that’s a huge compliment to Pete .”

Sounds like it’s going to be a cool ‘big’ flick!

“Battleship” is released May 2012.

Update: Brooklyn just tweeted that she was misunderstood and that she won’t be doing reshoots and that there aren’t alternative finales:

Sorry guys, my battleship quote was misunderstood. No reshoots, Spring filming was always planned, and no alternate endings.

Brooklyn Decker, replacing Megan Fox?

Today it was announced that Megan Fox won’t be back in ‘Transformers 3’ & rumors about her replacement starte … & here we have an article where it says thar our girl Brookie is one of Michael Bay’s option!

Arterton to Replace Fox in ‘Transformers 3?’

Published by Jeff Leins on May 19th, 2010

Gemma ArtertonGemma Arterton is the frontrunner to play Shia LaBeouf’s female love interest in Transformers 3.  It was announced early today Megan Fox was ousted when Paramount and director Michael Bay decided not to pick up her option for the threequel.  (Read more about that here.)

Sources for The Wrap say Michael Bay has already discussed the coveted role with the British-born actress.  At 24, Arterton is the same age as Fox, but brings as much experience starring in blockbusters, such as Clash of the Titans, Quantum of Solace, and this month’s Prince of Persia.

Not wasting any time to meet beautiful women, Bay has also been talking to swimsuit model Bar Rafaeli, who acted in the indie thriller Session, and Victoria’s Secret angel Miranda Kerr, whose experience is limited to an episode of “How I Met Your Mother” (as herself).

He’s also met with sexy young actress Brooklyn Decker who appears in Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston’s next rom-com, the aptly-titled Just Go With It.

Is Bay seriously considering these women, or is he just hitting on hot ladies?  Rafaeli, Kerr, and Decker barely have any experience outside of a few bit parts.  Wait a minute, neither did Fox before the first film.  There’s a pattern here…

As for Arterton, I’m yet to be impressed with anything she’s done.  Other than her good looks, she’s sort of a blank slate of emotion on screen.  Maybe it’s just the Clash connection, but from what I’ve seen she’s the female Sam Worthington.

Oh well, I’m not sure what I was expecting from Michael Bay and a third CGI-heavy robots-fighting-robots movie.  I’d say it’s a missed opportunity, but talent hasn’t been a factor for the first two.  Why start now?

SOURCE … So, would you like to see Brooklyn in the next ‘Transformers’?
