Danny Glover Goes Moby Dicking for a White Dragon

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.

The $5 million Herman Melville-inspired dragon flick shooting on location in Utah is being directed by Ryan Little (Forever Strong, House of Fears). As if dragons weren’t ferocious enough, Vinnie Jones co-stars as Stubbs. Call Corey Sevier (Decoys 2, House of Fears) Ishmael. A possible limited theatrical release could be in the works for the fall.

Not much else about Dragon Fire out there at this time. In the meantime here’s a YouTube video of a local Utah news station’s set report complete with a look at crazy-eyed Glover and a rubbery dragon.

    • It’s got dragons, man! Actually, Foy is allowed to stray outside the strict horror boundaries because what he uncovers is always so damn entertaining. And as we’ve said over and over, we’re willing to stretch the definition of “genre” if it’s something we think our readers would be interested in.

        • Know what makes more sense? It’s a movie about a killer dragon, which is a subject the site has covered before, and it’s a movie about a crazy guy hunting a killer monster, also a subject we have covered before. This is hardly that far out of the genre to warrant a “Why exactly are you covering this?” Don’t you start going Terminal on me too or I’ll lock the two of you in a room with only the steak bone from Law Abiding Citizen to fight each other to the death.

          • Haha, it was the whole Moby Dick angle that threw me off.

          • I knew you’d mention me in this thread. Either I’m vain or you’re predictable.

            And you laugh, but I’m a scrapper. I’ve learned to fight to the death with anything handheld. Being piss poor can do that to a person.
