I hope you said Roland Emmerich, because that’s what you’re getting.
Hey, where’s everybody going??
At least the FX should be better (I hope) than the 70’s version, which blew its budget on a star-studded cast, leaving 37 cents to round up a bunch of syphilitic monkeys and lock them in a room with some WWII stock footage (My personal favorite was Chuck Heston’s dive bomber, which turns into a torpedo plane mid-flight, then becomes a 1950’s jet fighter upon crashing into the carrier).
Not much of a banner cast this time. Just Woody Harrelson playing Adm. Nimitz, backed up by Aaron Eckhart, Patrick Wilson, Dennis Quaid, Mandy Moore, and uh… one of the Jonas brothers. Some dude I never heard of will be playing Yamamoto, though I’m not sure how you could possibly top Toshiro Mifune, voiced by Burgermeister Meisterburger.
