Producer Don Carmody (Silent Hill) has been spending a lot of time talking to Shock Till You Drop recently, handing out updates on his various projects like they were candy.
Nothing sucks worse than the last hour of work on a Friday, let me tell you. I try to spend as much of that time as I can doing as little work as possible, and today it paid off pretty well for you guys!
The first chunk of casting for the upcoming monster/sci fi/Viking epic Outlander has taken place, and as I always predicted would happen, Jesus has stolen the role. Specifically, Jim Caviezel, who played Jesus in Mel Gibson’s gore film The Passion of the Christ, is in talks to take the lead role in the Weinstein Co. flick, which is set to roll next month in Nova Scotia and Newfoundland. Wow, how many movies do you hear about being made in Newfoundland? Weird.
Now here’s something a bit different; a monster movie set during the age of Vikings. That’s a new one on me, but I’ll go along for the ride. The film is called Outlander, and is getting ready to start up its ten weeks of principal photography on October 9th in and around Halifax, British Columbia, according to Production Weekly.
