Would you pay to see an 'Aquaman' movie?
So the huge success of the fictional big-screen version of Aquaman as part of the storyline on HBO’s Entourage prompted the show-biz comedy’s producers to take out a very real trade ad in Variety touting the numbers for the blockbuster, directed on the show (but not in real life) by James Cameron. And now comes word that Cameron’s fans are jonesing for the Titanic helmer to actually make Aquaman a reality beyond the Entourage universe. I totally approve of the idea — on one condition: The movie must star Adrian Grenier-as-Vincent Chase, not Adrian Grenier. I mean can you imagine how meta the junket’s gonna be for that flick?
Would you shell out $10 for Aquaman? And would you cast Grenier/Chase or somebody else?
