This week on The Bastardcast, Jeremy and Jason get down with the sickness that is Kickstarter revivals, wrestler/actors, and their low budget/high concept version of what Jurassic Park 4 would look like.
You want more? You need it? Fine, we will be your podcast heroin — who want’s to talk about the Pope!?!?! Yeah you do, how about Ukrainian assassin dolphins? Oh, now we got your attention. Ready for the money shot? The Papal pop-shot if you will? How about this: The Pope riding on the back of a Ukrainian assassin dolphin to take on Steven Seagal?! BOOM! Don’t trip on your brain pieces that fell on the floor when we blew your mind with that thing we just said.
I can’t believe you want more show, I can’t believe how voracious your appetites are and the fact that I just used the word voracious in a way that is proper. Fine! We will give you more show! You insatiable pod-gobbler!
KEVIN SMITH EATING A SANDWICH, ASTRONAUT: THE MUSICAL, IRAN DOESN’T LIKE BEN AFFLECK‘S APPLES, AND SLY STALLONE WANTS YOUNG MEN… for Expendables 3.
All that, and a whole other podcast tacked onto the back of this one that will have hilarity ensuing all over your face and up in your business.
The Bastardcast: Kickstartering a Perfect Strangers trilogy since 8 minutes ago.
This time on the Bastardcast, Jeremy and Jason make fun of the following things:
Moon travel, putting Dan Aykroyd, George Lucas, and Eddie Murphy on ice, busting into the Disney Vault, screwing Aunt May, Walking Dead‘s midseason finale, the ‘Talking’ travesty, beating ghost children, Hobbit puke, the soul of Star Trek, and then they dance, dance dance.
On VERSUS, they try and settle a question that Sir Ian McKellen already answered on the Colbert Report
The Bastardcast — Milf tested, delinquent approved.
The Expendables 2 comes out this Friday, and the assumption is that it’s going to hit. So naturally, producers are looking at who else might be recruited to the team for the inevitable follow-up, and they have some pretty big names in mind.
Producer Avi Lerner gave Total Film a wish list of who he’d like to see in Expendables 3, and it’s got some pretty impressive names on it. Let’s let Lerner explain:
We’ve approached Clint Eastwood to be one of the guys, we’ve got a character in mind for him. We’re talking to Harrison Ford. [And we want] Wesley Snipes when he comes back from prison. I’ll give you one more name, we’ve got Nicolas Cage to play [one of the characters]. And we’re going to bring Mickey Rourke back, if he won’t be too crazy. I like Mickey. And of course, all the existing stars [will return].
I can see Snipes doing it, and he’ll be getting out of jail next summer – just in time for principal photography to begin. Eastwood would be very cool, I can see him being like Lee Marvin in The Dirty Dozen, but I wonder if given his busy career as a director if he has the time or the interest. Cage? If he did Bangkok Dangerous, he’ll do Expendables 3. Hopefully as a villain. Ford might be the trickiest of all to secure, but he did Cowboys & Aliens and went to Comic Con in the same year, so maybe he’s getting soft in his old age.
No word if Steven Seagal might pull his head out of his ass and sign up.
The Expendables 2 comes out this Friday.
Robert Rodriguez, despite his busy schedule, took time out to grace the stage of SXSW in Austin, Texas and announce that he will start filming for Sin City 2 along with other new projects in the works. After 7 years of rumors and speculation, we get word from on high that Sin City 2 is a go. Rodriguez ended his news on Sin City by assuring fans that filming for Sin City 2 would start shooting this year, around the summer, after he’s finished filming Machete Kills which starts in April.
Casting for both Machete Kills and Sin City 2 have not been set in stone, but Rodriguez assures SXSW goers that the stars in discussion for both films “will be of the same caliber and eclecticism as the first films, which featured Mickey Rourke, Bruce Willis, Jessica Alba, Robert De Niro, Lindsay Lohan, Josh Hartnett, Don Johnson, and Steven Seagal.” The other news coming from Rodriguez, is the creation his new company Quickdraw Animation, which will be separate from his film company Troublemaker Productions and will focus on creating CG animated featured films.
The first films Quickdraw Animation will be developing Heavy Metal and a family film, which have scripts and are both at the storyboard and pre-production phase. Rodriguez went on to divulge that he has found a way to “streamline the animation process that will greatly shrink the amount of time it takes to produce one…he will keep a core group of 6-8 animators in his Austin-based Troublemaker Studios to mastermind all the story and visual elements before using sister companies to finish the animation.”
While the local Texan in me is glad for the possibility of new jobs being created for all the struggling artists out there, I’m not completely sold on the Animation company being capable of cutting down the time it will take to make a a feature-length animated film. If you look at Animation company’s like Pixar, and Universal Studios take longer than a two or three years to produce a high caliber animated film, but I guess Rodriguez is betting on the “Everything is bigger in Texas” motto to quantify projects being done faster and better.
