Wiwille's gonna be a movie star

My dear friend Ryon is a filmmaker and is currently working on a new script that is in pre-production. For those of you unfamiliar this is the same guy who directed Grip Loss, a movie I wrote about a few days back.

Ryon's new film is a horror story with a plot that I won't reveal yet, but as I'm sort of the Kyle MacLachlan to his David Lynch he casted me in the role of a scruffy tough rancher. I raise sheep.

I'm not kidding people.

I've yet to meet the rest of the cast as they're all based in or around Idaho, but today he sent pictures of each of us. I started scrolling through the pics and realized that everyone in this film is really good looking, sans me and the old guy with the Santa beard. They look more like actors that star in a CW series than a horror flick.

The girl that plays my character's love interest is absolutely smoking hot. I don't know how this will come off as believable. Since I'm currently editing the script I think I'll write in some line about my 12 inch personality, cause after all movies never lie.

The shoot is scheduled tentatively for September and I'll keep you posted on the progress.

"I think that true horror is accomplished by slowly getting into your brain. The old way is much more scary." - Sergio Aragones

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't Aragones the cartoonist from Mad Magazine who drew those delightfully funny "A Mad Look At..." pantomime strips.

And good on you for being in a movie.

PS. can you at least tell us if there's going to be some boobies in the movie?

WIGSF - If I have it my way the women cast would never wear a shirt, ever, but sadly that's not my call.

Well you are editing it. Time for you to get creative. Add in some goodstuff.

Hmmm...it is possible that I shall be unemployed in September. Is shooting going to be over in Idaho?

Wiwille said...

Mizzle - All edits need the director's approval though. I'll see what I can get away with.

Mattbear - Yeah it will be out there unfortunatley. I'll have to take some vacation for it.

Is that a pic of Vlad the Impaler? Did he raise sheep? I digress... A tough rancher eh? I thought you "drove big trucks!"

Have fun!!

Miss Ash said...

Haha nice!! All horror films have naked women running around, you're all set!

Wiwille said...

Mangblagh - I wasn't actually in the Star Wars film, I just directed it. It's bad.

PK - That is a pic of Vlad and no he didn't raise sheep, at least I don't think, but I will be driving a "big truck".

Miss Ash - If only I were so lucky. I'd take a career in horror movie acting.
