    Yeah, not liking this signing, would have preferred seeing Speedman come back for the fourth film.

    If Michael Ealy being the film's leading man isn't a bad sign, I don't know what is. Pass, for the 4th time.

    So if Michael isn't coming back, is this a follow up to Evolution or a prequel to the first ?

    Meh... He is a decent actor. Sucks he's only getting roles like the fourth outing in a tired movie series and the abortion that was Takers.

    My guess is that he's either tied up with another project or just doesn't want to come back

    Its a good sign that Michael Ealy is getting more roles but he needs to gel up in a few more courses as well. Its one of the the marks of a professional actor

    Anything to get Kate B. in tight leather and/or plastic.

    And of course anything to get Bill Nighy in front of the cameras.

    Even though I really can't stand Scott Speedman he was decent in these movies, how come he's not coming back?
