There are a couple of reasons for this:
- I can’t find a producer just yet. I don’t want to make this film without being properly prepared. And I simply need a producer who can help me with budgets, contracts, release forms, locations and things like that. I don’t want to make the film without someone like that because it will turn into a mess.
- Also I have some holiday planned in September so the best thing really is to move the shoot to October. That way I can take some extra time to prepare. I am putting quite some money into this, and it would be a shame to rush it for no apparent reason.
- Maybe moving it away from the summer holiday will improve my chances of finding a good producer too.
- And as a last – I need to do what Ewan McGregor did, which is having some moles removed. It’s planned for the 20th of August, it’s a minor procedure and I try not to worry about it too much, but I would lie if I said that it is not spinning around in my head. I am not too worried about the procedure itself, even though I am not looking forward to it, but am slightly worried about the potential badness of them. Let’s see how it goes.
Back to the film.
I was very worried that the casting director would be pissed off about me moving the film ahead and that he would consider me being an amateur idiot. Of course he did not. He was very understanding, and told me that things like this happen all the time. We might still do auditions on Saturday though.
Also, the designer is still working on the film poster. I have a range of suggestions already, but it’s not there yet. When it is, I will, of course publish it here. And I will also publish the ones that did not make it so you can see the design progress.
There is no way I am giving up this film, I have my teeth in it now, and I won’t let go until this film is made. So bear with me.
Talking about teeth, the above photo, that’s Bill in the new Underworld: Rise of the Lycans film. It will be out in January 2009 and it will be the first Bill film in the cinema after a year of cold turkey. He looks very cool but seems a bit angry and frustrated on this picture. I feel a bit like that at the moment.
Here is why Bill is such a cool person:
I like the fact that I wear a battle skirt and fangs. You know, how many times do you get to wear a battle skirt? It feels cool and I get very cool armor and I look kind of manly. I don’t normally play masculine type roles, I don’t get those parts. I get people who are falling apart and sad people who are middle aged and shy and lame. I don’t very often get to play alpha male so it is as near as I get.
Is that sweet(arts) or what.
