Patrick Lussier and Todd Farmer’s next bit of cinematic madness, the Nicolas Cage revenge vehicle Drive Angry in 3D, is officially in the can, and the flick is set to have a big presence at this year’s SD Comic-Con so what’s left to do? Well, for co-writer Farmer it’s time to blog and post images, that’s what!
Over on Todd Farmer’s official blog the writer has offered a bit of reflection on his experiences.
Dig on a snippet below, and hit up the link for the whole enchilada!
“We couldn’t throw big money at the screen to cover up or distract the audience from our challenges,” writes Farmer. “We had no choice but to THINK our way out of problems. It’s funny but all movies should start with a story. What saved us at every turn was focusing on story. Relying on story telling always bailed us out of any problem where the cats with big money and lots of time rely on big explosions and massive CGI fixes.”
Focus on the story? What a novel idea!
Drive Angry, co-written by Lussier and Farmer, centers on a man (Nicolas Cage) driven by rage who is chasing the people who killed his daughter and kidnapped her baby. The vendetta/rescue spins out of control as the chase gets bloodier by the mile, leaving bodies strewn along the highway. Amen.
Look for more on this one as soon as we get it!
