    Just read this morning that the adorable Ms. Knightley has officially signed on for Jurassic Park 4, which reminded me that she's now a bona-fide star. Her one-two punch of Bend It Like Beckham and Pirates of the Caribbean have made the suits take notice.

    ...and it seems like only a few months ago that I wondered who that "cute girl from the Robin Hood's Daughter flick" was. [​IMG] I guess Lucas will take credit for discovering her, although he left nearly all of Keira on his cutting room floor. [​IMG]

    Fans can see Keira AGAIN this year when Richard Curtis' buzz-happy ensemble Love Actually comes out. (I've seen a brief promo clip and it DOES look quite funny!) Then next year Keira plays Lady Guinevere in Antoine Fuqua's / Jerry Bruckheimer's King Arthur! And then a Dreamworks flick with Jude Law called Tulip Fever...and then JP4.

    So if you wanna see more of her, you'll get plenty of chances! Congrats to Keira. She's as adorable as hell - and she seems a pretty damn good actor as well.

    What's Portman got in the works these days? [​IMG]

    Of course I know that.

    I was just poking a little fun at the Portman/Knightley comparisons.

    It'll be very cool to see Natalie do work other than the SW flicks, although I'm one who dug Eps. 1 and 2.

    Patrick's comment about Ep. 3 was in response to my "What's Portman doing these days?" question.

    And I could have sworn that Knightley played Padme's sister in the Ep. 2 deleted scenes. Then again, I get confused easily.

    Ah-ha! Toldja I get confused, especially where three hot brunettes are concerned. I remember Karvan from a pretty slick Aussie flick called Risk. Other than that I don't know much about her.

    Portman's in Cold Mountain, isn't she? That's not Star Wars [​IMG]

    I was quite amazed at the amount of projects she has gotten involved with since "Bend It Like Beckham". She certainly has made a big splash, with the one-two punch of BILB and PotC.

    It might also help that she doesn't have the "no nudity" clause that Portman has. (Not to mention that it seems Portman is far too picky about the roles she does...)

    Portman has finished up "Cold Mountain", and according to IMDB, she's filming "SW: Episode III" and "Large's Ark". She's got 2 other upcoming film projects: "Closer" and "The Smoker".

    If you wanna see a good Keira flick, get your hands on The Hole DVD.. region 1 but not sold in the US.

    Plus it has her assets.

    Universal has the liscense to 6 JPs..They are going to vaginally tear this franchise and I LOVE the franchise...

    The casting and characters were so good in 1 and II (most likely because Michael C. wrote the books) but I feel that III was just terrible. The characters were just so different...Is Johnston directing this?

    This is just my opinion so please, I am not trying to start an argument.

    We can start a legit discussion, I was just taking the first step to trigger such a response. [​IMG]

    I thought JPIII was just shallow in storyline, too short, and ending absolutely did not deliver. "Don't get me started" on Tea Leoni, bring in Kelly Rowland for God's sake. Sam Neill, I used to love that his character was so into his work, they killed that off..Let's see..Laura Dern..married..hmm..the kid from The Patriot [​IMG] .

    I am going to explode.

    Your turn.

    Is there a plot outline for JP4 available? What more can they do with the franchise? Surely it is not Jurassic Park IV: Dinosaurs in Outer Space ?
