Oh, don't act so surprised. Those of you with a good memory will recall that about two years ago, talk of a "Bloodsport" remake burbled up with Phillip Noyce ("Patriot Games," "Salt," "Clear And Present Danger") set to direct a "reinvention" of the Jean-Claude Van Damme classic. And then nothing was heard about it again...until today. Yes, "Bloodsport" is coming again to take you to the mat, but with a different name at the helm.

Director Phillip Noyce has always embodied the word "workmanlike." Not quiet an auteur, but not a faceless hack either, Noyce has succeeded in making above-average or at least financially successful studio fare like "Patriot Games," "Salt," "Clear And Present Danger" and "The Bone Collector." Every now and then he'll do a prestige pic like "The Quiet American" or "Rabbit Proof Fence" to mixed results. And while lately he's circled the time travel pic "Timeless," the thriller "Hunter Killer" and the true life nature conservancy story "Our Wild Life," we didn't think things were this bad.
