Phoenix

Losing Gambit

From CBR;
Speaking of casting "could-have-beens," USA Today points out that "Lost" bad boy Josh Holloway was in the running for the role of Gambit, but chose the show over a cinematic turn.


You know, it never occurred to me, but I can acually see that. He's just about scruffy enough, has the messy, shaggy hair...if we don't nitpick on the accent (Which I have no idea if he can or can't do adequately), then yeah, he works well for Gambit, I think.

Sources said that, given the strong sales of the TV series Firefly on DVD, Universal is planning a sequel film to Serenity that will be produced with and to broadcast premiere on the Sci Fi Channel, which is part of the NBC Universal family.

The project is said to be a lower budget undertaking streamlined for the small-screen.

IGN FilmForce checked with Joss Whedon’s camp who denied the claim; Universal did not comment.
