Not Mellow Costello

This is brilliant. Found this flyer posted on a community bulletin board and, though the photo was clearly Woody Harrelson, I've got to admit, it took me a while reading through the content to realize that it was a promotional campaign for Martin McDonagh's hugely anticifuckingpated Seven Psychopaths. Can not wait.

For what else can I not wait? How about the film version of James Ellroy's Blood's a Rover? Heard that shit is on the way. Probably a ways away, but it makes my nipples poky just thinking about it. And, jeez, did you hear the one about Guillermo del Toro and Sara Gran? Holy craps - check it out!

Over at Battle Royale With Cheese, Pablo D'Stair has a lengthy piece about Julian Grant and F*ckload of Scotch Tape. Of course, the big news today out of Grantland is the 'world premiere' of F*ckload of Scoth Tape at the Chicago International Film Festival in October! 3 chances to see the film on the big screen, October 18, 20 & 23 (click here for more details).

I'm a huge fan of Grant's artistic philosophy, very DIY, and fuck 'em if they won't get behind you (an odd mash of expressions there, I realize), and if you'd like to get on board as a producer of his next crime flick Sweet Leaf - you can do that in several ways right here.

Here's another Duane Swierczynski / Anthony Zuiker collaboration - a short assassin flick called Execution Style.
