Well last week started off well when I got to chat with the legendary Aussie actor Bryan Brown; the star of Cocktail, Gorillas in the Mist and FX - Murder by Illusion to name a few. We talked about his new TV show Two Twisted, a return to the sinister and disturbing worlds of The Twilight Zone and Alfred Hitchcock Present's. He has gathered together a fine array of talent both infront and behind the camera including Sam Neil, Melissa George, Paul Middleditch and Jacqueline McKenzie. Lets hope it kick starts a deluge of home grown television drama production down under. Keep posted for when the interview will be published. For Australian readers Two Twisted is now showing on Mondays on Channel Nine.
In some brief news my report from the set of Stephen King's Nightmares and Dreamscapes appears in the Shivers supplement of Starburst Special #76 and my talk with ILM's Grady Cofer will be appearing in the third issue of Smoke and Mirrors, on shelves very soon.
For anyone reading in London I'm very jealous indeed as this year's Frightfest Festival starts in a couple of weekends time on August 24th with a charity screening of Chris Smith's Severance. The line-up over the long weekend is sensational so if you live in London and don't have tickets, shame on you. Those days squashed behind The Cinema Store's table with Theo and Neil flogging zombie DVDs in The Prince Charles cinema's basement seem so far away! Have a great one Paul, Alan and Ian and everyone who is attending.
