Tyrese Gibson is jumping to don the skin tight catsuit for a Thundercats remake. In an interview for the new Death Race movie (where he plays killer convict Machine Gun Joe) we got a chance to ask Gibson if he could remake any film what would it be? In mere seconds Tyrese Gibson leaned forward and said, "Thundercats." Click through for more on Gibson's desire to kill like a cat, plus Luke Cage news. Gibson couldn't stop smiling when talking about the 'cats. But he didn't have a specific Thundercat in mind, explaining that there were a lot of options. When pressed to ask if there was more Hollywood talk about this cartoon remake Gibson said, "I'm just looking into that." He has also been linked to the superhero character Luke Cage. His Cage update was very non-commital, "we'll see what happens. There's a lot of anticipation and things that need to happen," (including the tweaking of the classic yellow-shirt uniform). Let's hope it comes together soon, because according to Gibson he's also on standby to play B.A. Baracus in John Singleton's remake of the A-Team.
@Necroscope: Yes, Meredith did do an actual interview with Gibson. Yes, Gibson told her a bunch of stuff he also told to other interviewers who talked to him minutes before and after. There is no scandal here, merely an actor who is probably tired and doesn't have a lot of new things to say.
