Mickey Rourke to Have Hand/Footprints at Chinese Theatre

Mickey RourkeMickey Rourke, whose film career has been somewhat resurrected thanks to Darren Aronofsky's The Wrestler in 2008, will have his hand and footprints immortalized at 11 a.m. on Monday, October 31, at Grauman's Chinese Theatre on Hollywood Boulevard.

The 59-year-old Rourke, who'll next be seen as King Hyperion in Tarsem Singh's fantasy adventure Immortals, began his film career with a small role in Steven Spielberg's 1979 romp 1941. Among Rourke's other credits are Diner, Rumble Fish, The Pope of Greenwich Village, Angel Heart, Year of the Dragon, Barfly, and Nine 1/2 Weeks. His career went rapidly downhill in the late '80s, though Rourke has managed to keep himself busy in front of the cameras.

Released by Relativity Media, Immortals opens on November 11, 2011. Also in the cast: Man of Steel's Henry Cavill, Slumdog Millionaire's Freida Pinto, and Twilight's Kellan Lutz, in addition to Luke Evans, Isabel Lucas, Stephen Dorff, and John Hurt. Charles Parlapanides and Vlas Parlapanides penned the mythological tale. Also worth noting, Rourke and fellow Immortals player Kellan Lutz are reteaming for an Indonesia-set thriller, Java Heat, under the direction of Conor Allyn.

Mickey Rourke's hand/footprinting ceremony will be broadcast live via streaming video on: http://www.chinesetheatres.com. Rourke will be there three days before Lutz's The Twilight Saga pals, Robert Pattinson, Kristen Stewart, and Taylor Lautner, get their hands and footprints in cement.
