He was great as Smaug (in spite of the movie), and as The Angel, Islington, in Neverwhere. I'm pretty stoked for this.

The fact they keep adding people like this makes me think that the movie is going well, the script is probably pretty solid, and the energy around the movie is good.

None of that makes a flop impossible, obviously, but I'm more optimistic as time goes by.
It raises the floor from direct to video schlock up to big production value confused mediocrity, at worst. It could even be pretty great, but I'm keeping my expectations in check a bit.

Non-compete clauses are actually illegal in California. I don't know if that was statutory or a judicial decision, but I work in California, and our workplace insists we can't work for a competitor, and everyone openly says "OK, thank you for saying that" and smirks.
Not all non-compete clauses in California are barred. If you sell a business for example, you can enter into an enforceable non-compete. If you're a partner in a business or LLC member you can agree to not compete if the partnership or LLC ends.

I'm getting a GI Joe vibe off this. IIRC those 2 movies had pretty decent casting with some big names but were lame movies.
Too early to say: all we know now is that Paramount has put real money into the project, and hired talented people. Sometimes that produces something great, sometimes it falls flat on it's face: sometimes it falls flat and makes big money anyways. Time shall tell. It has the ingredients to succeed, hope it works out.

It’s likely an important role to justify paying him the money he demands. And one worth playing for him to justify his name being tied to.
