Genre babe Mary Elizabeth Winstead has finally secured her first starring role in a studio film. She, along with Joel Edgerton, will headline Universal Pictures upcoming remake of John Carpenter’sThe Thing, set to start shooting on March 15 in Toronto.
Winstead will play a PH.D. candidate who ventures to Antarctica to join a Norwegian research team’s investigation of a frozen spaceship trapped under ice. When an alien organism attacks the crew, she and Edgerton’s helicopter pilot character are left to fend for themselves.
Winstead has starred in Quentin Tarantino’s Death Proof, Final Destination 3, The Ring 2, and the Dimension Films remake Black Christmas.
Amanda Fuller has been acting on television since she was about 10-years-old, appearing on such shows as “Walker Texas Ranger,” “Two of a Kind,” and “Touched by an Angel.” Now 25, the fledgling actress is showing off how much she’s grown in director Simon Rumley’s dark psychological creep-show Red, White, & Blue.
From what I gather, the film follows three losers with a knack for bad decision-making. Fuller plays human cum-receptacle Erica, an emotionally unstable runaway prone to drinking and group sex.
It appears that Fuller, who goes nude in the film, needs to believe that Red, White, & Blue is complex and artistic and not just pretentious masturbation fodder for those who peruse straight-to-DVD indie fare in search of B-list, maybe even C-and-D-list, Hollywood T&A. So, let’s humor her and watch as she explains why the nudity and violence in Rumley’s movie is a bold cinematic statement of yada yada.
I wasn’t going to post about Suicide Girls Must Die, an indie-horror with a “reality-based” slant, because I don’t like tattooed ugly chicks. But, then I realized that some of you guys are probably tattooed and ugly too.
