Hi Ace of Hearts,
nice to see you back here,
what for me, I see your point about the racing season and I do agree, there is more hope for CR appearances as he might be seen at a racetrack and at least be given a question what the hell is he up to at the moment.
What about possible future release, long hibernation and new La Passione gossips, I think it is quite probable a truth, as movies objectively take much more to work on properly, especially knowing CR's perfectionism and his intention to make something new much better than it was (to him) before. Thus, I assume it highly expected that there would really be a La Passione remake, which me myself, to say honestly, I am doubting to be encouraged with as well, since I too much love the original La Passione, even though the film was a flop.
Let's wait and see what is revealing,
