I like to play "six degrees", with these when I'm bored, and this flick gets me all sorts of connections.
Frank Darabont directed it, and went on to produce "The Walking Dead".
Melissa McBride went on to play Carol in "The Walking Dead".
Jeffrey DeMunn went on the play Dale in "The Walking Dead".
Laurie Holden went on to play Andrea in "The Walking Dead".
Thomas Jane played The Punisher in the 2004 Punisher flick, and all of the TWD alums connect this to TWD, and John Bernthal from TWD played (and still plays) Punisher in the Marvel-Netflix-verse.
Lotta ways to go with that.
Like "The Mist", lotta actor connections I can get to and from this.
For example, Flash's adoptive dad was in "Rent", with Rosario Dawson who's the Nick Fury of the Marvel-Netflix-verse.
6. Then, we finally got word the other two anthologies would be Han Solo, and Boba-Fett. Josh Trank was supposed to do Boba-Fett, and it was officially confirmed after "Fantastic Four", flopped, and he was fired, that it was going to be Boba-Fett, but now it's shelved. And Han Solo is filming right now, so that's real. I'm still not counting Boba-Fett out yet.
And a trailer.
Season 4 of Rebels is the final one.
Hopefully, it comes right up to the battle of Scarif (in Rogue One).
Warwick Davis will play Rukh, Thrawn's bodyguard.
(Fans of the old novels will know immediately where this storyline goes)
And some video game stuff I don't care about.
Aaaand, that's it.
No word on the Han Solo prequel title, or what the 3rd anthology movie really is.
Word is, Obi-Wan standalone, and an ensemble Bounty Hunters are both eventually getting made, but no official confirmation.
And Carrie Fisher's brother said Leia would be in episode 9 via unused footage being edited in, but Kathleen Kennedy (the new boss of Star Wars) ripped that away from us.
Shit, this was April 2nd.
2016 was such a bummer, and then winter was so gloomy, and depressing, and oppressive, and my anxieties were flaring up, so I was off in la-la land watching on-demand movies and blu-rays to try to drown my sorrows, and I just let this place go to seed.
