THE SUNDAY NEWS, February 5, 1989 A"ll ENTERTAINMENT 1 On location HULK TO TAKE THE STAND Bill Bixby will direct and star in "The Trial of the Incredible Hulk" with his big, green alter ego Lou Ferrigno. Bixby became aware of Vancouver as a good location site while directing several episodes of Murphy's Law. The Hulk cast will include several L.A. actors, with smaller roles going to local talent. Meredith Woodward, fresh from a stage appearance in "Toronto, Mississippi," has been cast as a farm owner in this NBC Movie of the Week, which will film for a month starting Feb. 15. REEL DREAMS Ray Sharkey, who was killed off last season on Wiseguy, returns in a dream sequence to haunt the hospitalized Vinnie (Ken Wahl) who, in real and reel life, has recovered from his injury and is fit and eager to get back to work. Gordon White plays a patient who is undergoing shock treatments. The next few Wiseguys will focus on the music industry and feature such well known rock stars as Deborah Harry (Blondie), Glenn Frye (Eagles) and Mick Fleetwood (Fleetwood Mac). ON A ROCK & ROLL Another rock musician, Jello Biafra of The Dead Kennedys, has a principal role in the local movie "Ricochet" , which begins filming Feb. 13. Biafra is the only American in an otherwise all-Vancouver cast, which will be announced when contracts are signed tomorrow. HEAVENLY HELPERS According to Coreen Mayrs, whose task it is to choose extras for We're No Angels, the 700 people who showed up at Maple Ridge for an open casting were the best she has ever encountered in attitude, appearance and manners and she'll be choosing quite a few for the film. The movie will use more than 1,000 extras, a nice little boost for the economy. Garwin Sanford and Bill Murdoch have been cast in the movie as a monk and deputy. Demi Moore, wife of Bruce Willis, will be appearing in her first role since the birth of their daughter, Rumer, in August. Although We're No Angels is the title of the '50s Bogart film, this version, with Robert de Niro and Sean Penn, is not a remake. The screenplay is by David Mamet, a prize winning playwright known for the accuracy r i i INTRODUCTORY OFFER $T(o)S U ' $59 95 LIVING & DINING ROOM Expires Feb. 1989 tV I mi jfc- i i i im 3 TRUCK MOUNTED STEAM CLEANING WHY $19.95?

Mamet wrote Speed-the-Plow (which starred Sean Penn's soon-to-be-ex, Madonna) and About Last Night (the screen version of his Sexual Perversity in Chicago), which featured Moore. With stars like the reclusive de Niro, the combative Penn and Moore (whose husband, the outspoken Willis is likely to visit) perhaps even with plot changes, We're No Angels really is the perfect title for the Mission movie.
