THE long-awaited sequel to "Bull Durham" is finally getting off the ground. A spy tells us Kevin Costner recently met with director Ron Shelton at Trader Vic's in LA to discuss reprising the role of carousing catcher Crash Davis from the 1988 baseball flick. Tim Robbins and Susan Sarandon are also expected to return as pitcher Nuke LaLoosh and baseball groupie Annie Savoy, who are now married and owners of a Major League team that Costner manages.
Seriously? You're gonna do a sequel of Bull Durham and have Annie and Ebby Calvin "Nuke" LaLoosh together as a married couple who own a big league team with Crash Davis working for them as manager? No fucking way. Nuke's big league career wouldn't have lasted as long as Mark "The Bird" Fydrich. You're gonna try and tell me he and Annie got together in 1996 after she dumped Crash Davis cause she didn't like living in Visalia, and made enough, a la Mark Cuban in the dot-com boom, to buy a fucking baseball team? And hire Crash to be their manager?
Oh, man. Maybe if they also do it as a zombie movie, it'll have a chance to be watchable.
