It's the Pitts...

Hmm. Matthew McConaughey will be playing Dirk Pitt, the adventurer lead of a long-running series of mostly nautical-based action novels by author Clive Cussler, in the film Sahara, due out next month. The last time Pitt was brought to the screen, he was assayed by the fairly obscure actor Richard Jordan in 1980's Raise the Titantic, a hugely expensive bust that ironically all but sank the British film industry as a major cinematic player. The good news is that it won't be hard to beat that picture, either as a movie or at the box office. However, chances are that this will come and go and basically be as anonymous as (the admittedly successful) National Treasure.
