They didn’t allow me to use the word ‘giddy’ in the quote for the trades announcement, but I’m pretty goddamn giddy. WOOO HOOO!!!!
Wow, greetings long lost friends. The latest podcast is up and ready to download. Reporting live from a bunker-hotel in Serbia, and complete with photos from the set, snippets of music, and a feature interview with the wonderful Joseph Gordon-Levitt.
You guys, the movie is officially going to be amazing. I’m so excited about it and everything is looking amazing! This is the last week of filming and so far what I’ve seen has been worthy of writing home over. Or writing in to the internet. So hello, and enjoy! -nathan
