    You lie!

    In all the dream casting in all the world, I don't think DiCaprio has ever been mentioned by any JDM fan as a suitable McGee.

    "Pleased"? Maybe after they pick their jaws up off the floor.

    On the other hand, the consensus here was that Clive Owen might make a great Marlowe, even if the choice of Frank Miller as writer/director was a little disappointing. Whatever happened to THAT project?
