I interviewed Bruce Campbell several years ago, and he told me that he auditioned for the role that eventually went to Billy Zane in the 90s version. What a different movie that would have been. [via io9.com]
You never know when the most innocuous-sounding panel is going to bring out the A-listers here at the TCAs. But when a big name is behind a project and he or she is passionate about it, that person will brave the room of critics to promote it.
To say Matt Damon is "dedicated" to the new History documentary The People Speak would be an understatement. The family of the Oscar winner lived next door to Professor Howard Zinn, on whose book, A People's History of the United States, is based. He and his Project Greenlight partner Chris Moore have been trying to bring the book to TV for a decade. "I have one of first copies (of Zinn's book) in hardback. It had a huge impact on my life so that's why I stayed with it. The moment we had iany influecne in this town we tried to get thids project off the ground."
Did anyone out there watch the third season of Project Greenlight on Bravo? I really enjoyed this show, but ratings for the most recent season were so-so at best, which means that we probably won't see a fourth season of the show. But fans have been waiting for Feast, the horror film from the last season directed by John Gulager and starring Balthazar Getty, Krista Allen, and Navi Rawat, to be released, but there has always been some delay from the Weinstein Company for a variety of reasons, and several dates announced as release dates have come and gone.
But the movie is heading to DVD on October 17. Sure, the movie will have it's premiere in Las Vegas on September 12, and will be seen in limited release on September 22 and 23 (late night showings only), but this is still basically a straight-to-DVD release, only with a twist.
I guess this is better than never seeing the movie at all. And fans might be happy that the film will be available on DVD so quickly (well, so quick after the theatrical run, not quickly in general).
The movie's release was held up for many, many months because of various behind the scenes legal wranglings involving Miramax. The film is co-produced by Chris Moore, Ben Affleck, and Matt Damon.
