'Refuge' director talks about his pandemic apocalypse movie

Refuge.jpg

In the new independent horror movie Refuge, Carter Roy, Amy Rutberg, and young actress Eva Grace Kellner play a family trying to survive in a post-apocalyptic world where the population has been almost entirely wiped out by disease. Given recent, panic-causing news events, the film could hardly be more topical. So what is it like to have made a movie about a global pandemic just as people are reaching for their face masks? “It’s incredibly coincidental that it’s peaking right now,” says Refuge director Andrew Robertson, whose film recently played the Toronto After Dark and L.A.-based Screamfest genre festivals. “It’s certainly not something that we would want to exploit. The particular nature of this extinction event just happens to be a plague. But there are so many other things that we have anxiety about: nuclear war, or asteroids hitting the earth, or climate change.” And a “Happy Halloween!” to you too, sir!

John Cleese denies retirement reports

John Cleese says movie casting directors should not be put off from hiring him by recent reports that the Monty Python comedy legend is retiring from films.

“Sometimes you read these things and you say, ‘I don’t remember saying that,'” explains Cleese, 74, whose acting credits include fellow Python Terry Gilliam’s 1981 film Time Bandits, 1988’s Cleese-written A Fish Called Wanda, and two of the Harry Potter films. “What I would say is, when you get to my age, the number of parts that you get offered is very, very small. They’re not looking for 75-year-old comedians most of the time. I have been offered a large part in a movie which, if they get the finance together, will happen in the spring. But that doesn’t happen a lot. What I did say is that I don’t enjoy movies very much. Terry Gilliam, who has nothing better to do with his life, loves to have movies because it structures him and gives him a purpose, which otherwise he lacks. I don’t like the way that they take your life over.”

paddington-01

When EW visited the London shoot of Paddington last year, everyone seemed thrilled that King’s Speech Oscar winner Colin Firth was voicing the film’s titular, marmalade-loving bear. “What we liked about Colin is that he’s got a bearish voice, he’s got a sense of humor, and he presents the very best of British,” explained producer David Heyman (of Gravity and the Harry Potter series). “We wanted that.”

James Franco has found the man to play actor Greg Sestero in his forthcoming adaptation of Sestero‘s 2013 book The Disaster Artist, which details the author’s involvement in the cult film The Room. Not that Franco had to look very far: According to 3 News, Franco’s brother Dave attended a Los Angeles screening of The Room over the weekend and, during a Q&A with the film’s mercurial writer-director-star Tommy Wiseau, asked him, “How do you feel about me playing Greg Sestero in the movie?” Wiseau responded by declaring, “That’s what I say: It’s a good choice.” James Franco seemed to confirm the casting news when he tweeted a photograph of Wiseau with his brother, which you can see above.
