Jim Cliffe, director and co-writer of Donovan's Echo, was given quite a thrilling assignment for his first feature film. He was tasked with bringing his supernatural tale to life and given Danny Glover and Bruce Greenwood to work with. Not bad.
In our eyes Danny Glover will always be the man who put a leash on two of Hollywood's biggest beasts ... The Predator and Mel Gibson. But now the seasoned actor has a whole new sort of threat that he has to tango with ...
I first stumbled upon this trailer for Age of the Dragons on YouTube over a week ago but failed to write anything up about it because I noticed it was uploaded over two months ago and assumed we had already reported on it. That should give you an idea of just how under the radar this Moby Dick with dragons flick starring Danny Glover has been.
He's killed a Predator, been murdered by Jigsaw, and spent considerable time being too old for this shit with Mel Gibson; now Danny Glover is taking on the Captain Ahab role and hunting a great white dragon in Dragon Fire, a fantasy reworking of the classic tale of Moby Dick.
All aboard the Night Train. Next stop: a fortune in diamonds and a mysterious Pandora's box that brings out the murderous side in people. Danny Glover will be your conductor. You will be sharing a car with Leelee Sobieski and Steve Zahn. We'll even throw in Richard O'Brien in drag for free. The DVD leaves the station this July.
