Steven Seagal and Erika Eleniak are set to boost their flagging film fortunes by revisiting hit action movie Under Siege for a second sequel.
Eleniak has revealed plans to make UNDER SIEGE 3, and she hopes her former co-star, Seagal, will also sign up for the sequel.
Speaking to website ain'titcool.com, the former Baywatch star says, "I have seen a complete script for 'US3'... (and) I must say I really wanted to hate it.
"For what it's worth, I liked it a lot. It's at least one of the most physical action-based shows I've looked at in a long time.
"It has nothing to do with airplanes... nothing to do with 9/11. It has nothing to do with boats or subs (submarines)... terrorists.
"There is great comic relief. There is non-stop ass-beatings being given out for free (and) there is the possibility of some women with clothing or lack-of issues (sic)."
The actress confirms that Seagal, who played CASEY RYBACK in the hit 1992 original, has not yet agreed to do the film.
Former WILSON PHILLIPS star Carnie Wilson is fighting to keep her weight down by signing up as a contestant on US reality TV show CELEBRITY FIT CLUB. The singer, who underwent drastic gastric bypass surgery in 1999 after being told she was morbidly obese, has been struggling to lose her baby weight since giving birth to daughter LOLA last year (05). The new mum admits she packed on the pounds while pregnant and is still 40 pounds (18.1 kilograms) shy of her ideal weight, so she's hoping a televised diet and fitness regime on the fourth season of Celebrity Fit Club will help her overcome her struggles. She says, "It took me nine months to lose 15 pounds. That was really frustrating... You just want to give up. It was one step forward and two steps back." It won't be the first time fans have been able to watch Wilson lose weight - her gastric bypass surgery was broadcast on the Internet. Wilson will join THE SOPRANOS' VINCENT PASTORE, singer Angie Stone, rapper BONECRUSHER and former Baywatch babe Erika Eleniak on the reality show.
Former Baywatch babe Erika Eleniak was so concerned about gaining weight and bulging out of her famous red swimsuit on the set of the surf drama she took laxatives. Looking back, the actress, who was 19 when she got her big break on the show, admits it was one of the most stupid things she ever did because it left her in agony. "I can remember feeling heavy... I weighed maybe 120 (pounds). I spent the day going 'I'm not thin enough, I have to hide.' "The worst thing I've ever done was definitely laxative abuse. That's just so awful - you get incredible stomach aches. "I went to the emergency room once for that and for four hours it was the most excruciating thing I'd ever felt." Eleniak is now trying to lose her post-pregnancy weight the healthy way by signing up as a contestant on the fourth season of hit US reality show CELEBRITY FIT CLUB, which debuts in August (06).
Anderson, who starred in the lifeguard soap in the early 1990s, is being lined up by David Hasselhoff to appear in the big screen version alongside other Baywatch castmates, who are yet to be confirmed but could include Carmen Electra, Erika Eleniak, YASMIN BLEETH and Traci Bingham.
The movie's director ELI ROTH says, "Pammy and the original girls will most likely do cameos in the movie. For the main cast, they want to go with a new crop of hotties.

For all the buzz about alterations made to "E.T. The Extra-Terrestrial" for its 20th anniversary release, the impact of these changes is insignificant at best. With or without them, the film remains the kind of unabashed delight that can make even the most cynical filmgoer feel like a kid wrapped up in the fantasy of it all.
Steven Speilberg tapped CGI technology to give the little hammer-headed, saucer-eyed, smoker's-voiced alien more life-like movements -- most notably in his desperate opening scene dash toward to his departing ship while the government man with jangling keys on his belt gives chase through the forest.
E.T. used to slide through the underbrush as if he was being pulled on tracks -- which he was, and the fact that it looked so fake became an awkward distraction in the first five minutes. Now E.T. rapidly lumbers on all fours like an ape. It may not sound like much, but believe me, it's a vast improvement.
