News on the street is that a person has said they want to be part of the next movie… before the first movie comes out.

Where have we heard that before?  We hear it a lot around the industry of Hollywood when TV shows are renewed before the first episode of the first season even airs.  (Present example…  Starz “renewing” Magic City…  a show that hasn’t aired yet.)  Or when media takes a soundbite from an actor that says I’d love to be in an upcoming project… that hasn’t lifted off the ground yet.
