Chewbacca – The Biopic

3 Comments

Kyle Newman (Fanboys) arbeitet grade an einem Biopic um Peter Mayhew, der Chewbacca spielte. Der Film soll quasi die Entstehung der Star Wars-Saga durch die Brille des Wookies erzählen. Nettes Konzept, auch wenn Newmans Fanboys eher für die Tonne war. Von Collider:

Mayhew recently tweeted, “Yes, we’re working with Kyle Newman and the team on CHEWIE, The Movie and are hopeful it can move forward.” Heat Vision followed up with a report Newman, the director of the Star Wars love letter Fanboys, acquired Mayhew’s life rights to further develop the script. There is no specific mention of Newman directing, but his involvement should help move the project along regardless. George Lucas gave an early approval to Fanboys, enough to lend the movie the official Star Wars sound effects. Chewie has a terribly appealing premise, but one that is probably dependent on Lucasfilm’s involvement for proper execution.

    Erstmal: ich hatte gerade eine fremde E-Mailadresse + Nick in den Angaben.
    Eigentlich: Klingt ja mal richtig unspannend. Eher was für Die-Hard-Fans.

    @ Tobi: Der Bug ist bekannt und dürfte an einer Serverkonfiguration liegen, die mein Hoster wegen eines DDos-Angriffs implementieren musste. Die wird jetzt am WE wieder entfernt, dann sollte das nicht mehr vorkommen. Danke für den Hinweis! ;)

    DVD cover for gay and lesbian comedy movie “Pride” is ‘straight-washed’ for American market

    In case you’re wondering the critically acclaimed comedy is about a group of gay and lesbian activists who supported striking miners in the 1980’s

    The top photo is the USA DVD cover with Lesbians & Gays edited out, the bottom photo is the European version

    The wording has also changed from  ”a London-based group of gay and lesbian activists” to “a group of London-based activists”.

    Sir Christopher Lee, more fantastic than all of us. ALL OF US.

    Performed in a metal opera as Charlemagne.

    Schooled director of original and only worthwhile Wicker Man about ancient Druidic practices.

    And blessed with the most authoritarian voice ever. And I think he’s like 1,90m tall

    The only person in Peter Jackson’s LOTR cast to have met and conversed with J.R.R Tolkien 

    Corrected Sir Peter on the sound a person makes when stabbed in the back due to actual experience with that action

    He didn’t just perform as Charlemagne; he’s directly related to the great Frankish king.

    His WWII service was in the British Special Forces.

    He was an SOE agent, right?

    That he was
