I loved the original, but the sequels were pretty bad, not to mention, these guys are kinda old for this now...

David S. Ward tells MovieHole.net he's in the middle of studio negotiations to revamp the baseball film franchise, and he's hoping to bring back the stars of the 1989 original.

Please, please, please...no! Each Major League movie has been worse than the one that preceded it and I don't see the trend reversing. The first flick is a classic, the rest are money grabs pure and simple.

Major League 2 was good, but yea they are all kinda too old now.

Major League 3 was decent when you take into consideration what it was, and what it had to work with.

Well the sequels were made to try to grab a larger audience and so they sucked. If they make it, what roles are the original cast gonna play?

Ricky comes out of retirement to join Cincinnati who needs bullpen help and mentor Aroldis Chapman while teaching Jay Bruce and Joey Votto not to be such goody two shoes.

And that gives the Cowboy a reason to say "Throw em the heater Ricky"

Tom Berenger is 61.
Charlie Sheen is 45.
Corbin Bernson and Dennis Haysbert are 56.
Wesley Snipes is 48.
Chelcie Ross is 68.

Yeah. That has "Great idea" written all over it.

I have to believe most of the guys will be coaches, with Berenger's Jake Taylor back as manager. I don't recall in ML2, was Dorn the owner at the end, or did he sell back to Rachel Phelps?

I think he was acquitted of those charges. Now Charlie Sheen is another matter.

That was my thought. Years after they saved the Indians, they're brought in to coach another bunch of losers after the current owner has sold off all the Indians' star players to the Yankees, kind of like real life.

Actually he was aquitted of conspiracy but convicted of failure to pay taxes and was given a 3 year sentence. He's free while it's being appealed.

I dont know what baseball movies you are watching but I've never heard anyone else say such a thing. What baseball movies would you say suck and which ones would you say are good?

I loved Major League 2 just as much as the original. I hated the third one, though.

Cobb meh, I don't like the structure as much as I liked the book, A league of their own is good, but I see that as much a period piece as baseball movie, the original BNB is good, but not a "baseball movie" by my definition as for the rest you can have em, especially the last 3.

Loved the Cobb biography. Hated that Tommy Lee Jones played Cobb. Really poor casting.

The Sandlot isn't a baseball movie as much as it has baseball in it. But it is a great movie.

I do have 61. The Rookie is a nice family film. Bull Durham is great. I own but hate For Love of the Game.

For love of the game is a good movie that figured out date movies probably make more money.

You should check out Sugar. It is very good. Make sure you watch the BluRay edition instead of the DVD, though; the DVD was edited to be more "family friendly" and is missing some key scenes as a result!

Th baseball part of "For Love of the Game" is fantastic. The rest...meh.

I think Scott Rolen at the plate looks like the bad guy in those movies. The big mean bearded slugger for the other team.

For Love Of The Game is great. I love it because Chapel pitches a perfecto against the Yankees as much as anything else.

If you haven't read the novel by Michael Shaara you should. I don't care for the movie version but the book is beautiful.

Apparently Ricky Vaughn is a go (as if we didn't all expect that) while Roger Dorn has been released.

Charlie hosted a screening of the original Major League with Brian Wilson, Kenny Lofton, Todd Zeile, Eddie Murray, and Lenny Dykstra last Friday? I thought he was in rehab....

This sounds about like a couple of weeks ago when Tara Reid said something about being in the sequel to The Big Lebowski. Only problem with that was there is no sequel planned.

James Gammon died last year, so he is out as the manager. Dennis Haysbert's Pedro Cerrano character could be shown doing commericals for Allstate.
