With 'The Expendables' Success, Why Not Try 'Grumpy Old Star Wars'?Pop-Ed: This weekend, Sylvester Stallone and his aged Hollywood beefcake ensemble propelled 'The Expendables' to the top spot at the box office with a winning combination of star power and firepower. Meanwhile, in Orlando, Fla. at the 'Star Wars' Celebration V, George Lucas announced that all six 'Star Wars' movies will finally be released on Blu-ray in 2011.

As I read the stories, I had a major case of two great tastes melding together. You got your 'Star Wars' in my 'Expendables!' You got your 'Expendables' in my 'Star Wars!'


Listen, if a bunch of old guys kicking ass can rake in a bundle at the box office, why can't Lucas reunite the cast of his original trilogy while Mark Hamill can still lift a lightsaber? Yes, I'm talking 'Grumpy Old Star Wars' here, with Hamill, Harrison Ford and Billy Dee Williams getting the band back together to blow up one more Death Star. Ford already put the dusty fedora back on for 'Indiana Jones and the Kingdom of the Crystal Skull' in 2008 -- why can't he pull that old vest out of the mothballs and strap on a blaster for another trip through hyperspace as Han Solo?
