Tim Allen Stars in my movie!

Well, It's not really "MY" movie, but, Allen will star in David Mamet's "Redbelt". This film is supposedly a "martial arts drama". Now Tim is a comedy guy basically (you all know him from "Home Improvement") and I have no idea how him being in a "Martial arts Drama" would be. The plot isn't very clever I'm afraid.
Redbelt is "the story of Mike Terry (Ejiofor), a Jiu-jitsu master who has avoided the prize fighting circuit, choosing to instead pursue a life of honor and education by operating a self-defense studio in Los Angeles. Terry's life is dramatically changed, however, when he is conned by a cabal of movie stars and promoters. In order to pay off his debts and regain his honor Terry must step into the ring for the first time in his life." Allen will play "a troubled action star with marital problems who meets the master when he is getting pummeled in a street fight."

See, that does seem like countless martial arts action flicks. But Ah! This isn't Action! Its DRAMA! Say it with me, Dra-ma.
Well, I like Tim, and Mamet made decent films in the past. They better do my nick name good! I have to wait until 2008 to know.
