Cinéma not-so vérité

Frankenhein

It’s alive!

There goes the (Hyborian) neighborhood: It seems the 65-year-old Arnold Schwarzenegger plans to reprise his role as Conan the Barbarian in “The Legend of Conan,” another sword-and-sorcery epic scheduled for release in 2014.

There is probably no truth to the rumor that the Governator is simultaneously working on a monster movie set in the gritty world of professional cycling. Said to have the working title “Frankenhein,” it stars Woody Harrelson as Lance Armstrong, Schwarzenegger as Hein Verbruggen and a gray-flannel bag of bullshit as Pat McQuaid.

    Ahhnold…..what a joke! UCI……the jig might be up on these bozos as it seems plenty are piling on now, whether it’s the Dutch cycling federation or the big euro newspapers. The whole BigTex mess just might result in some real reform and keep pro cycling from sinking all the way to the credibility level of pro wrestling…but my breath I’m NOT holding!
