We’ve been eagerly anticipating the Punisher fan film “The Dead Can’t Be Distracted” since it was announced a few months ago. But now, after a cease and desist letter from Marvel, it looks like the film will never see the light of day. And even more importantly and portentously, what does this mean for the future of fan films – and the future of Punisher on the big screen?
That’s a lot of questions, but first a bit of history. In a five page long open letter on his website, creator Mike Pecci extensively runs through the production, development, and eventual demise of “The Dead Can’t Be Distracted.” It’s a fascinating read full of a lot of tech info on filming, and even a few shots and a screen test. In fact, given that Marvel wrote a cease and desist stating:

She is also bitten by the Bollywood bug.

Sharni Vinson may not be a name that you’re familiar with just yet, but it will be soon. The Australian actress leads the excellent new horror film You’re Next in a true breakout role, and now sources confirm to us that Vinson has joined the cast of producer Adi Shankar’s all-female Expendables project. The untitled film already has Gina Carano and Katee Sackhoff onboard to star, and if you’ve seen Vinson’s work in You’re Next you’ll no doubt agree that she makes an excellent addition to the untitled actioner. The pic is still being put together with Dutch Southern writing the screenplay, but Vinson’s casting confirms that development is indeed progressing towards an eventual production start-date. Most recently, Shankar produced a pair of comic book-friendly short films, Dirty Laundry with Thomas Jane and Truth in Journalism with Ryan Kwanten. He was also »

Henry Wilcox wanted Annie to leave the CIA and join his new venture, Lexington Global, on the latest installment of "Covert Affairs." Annie refused, likely due in no small part to her relationship with Auggie. But then, Henry dropped a bombshell on her.
“The last few days, I’ve learned quite a bit about Auggie’s ex, Helen Hanson," Henry told Annie. "Ask him if he’s talked to her recently.”
“What do you mean?" Annie asked. "She’s dead.”
“Is she?" Henry responded. It certainly left Annie with plenty of questions.
TV Fanatic's Carla Day had questions, too. "Is Auggie still lying to Annie? Is his wife still alive and are they in contact with each other? That would be a humongous blow to Annie and her relationship with Auggie," wrote Day. "Could the mysterious woman (Michelle Ryan) that Arthur met with in the parking garage and then followed Wilcox be Auggie's wife? »

It came down to a war of words between the women over Adriana's marriage. Neither remembered events in the same way, leading to hurt feelings. But how do you say who's right, or is it possible to just forget it and decide it doesn't matter? Lea felt that Adriana had lied to her about her secret marriage for years after a local paper revealed that she'd been legally married all that time. Lea, though, insists that Adriana knew all along. As for Adriana's claims that she financially helped Lea out at one time during the time she thought her friend was single, Lea says it never happened. »

Adi Shankar has executive produced feature-length films starring Brad Pitt, Liam Neeson, Mark Wahlberg and Russell Crowe, but it's his "bootleg" movies starring Thomas Jane and Ryan Kwanten that are earning him notierity with one of Hollywood's most important audiences: the fanboys and girls that studios target every summer. "Dirty Laundry," a short film that features Jane reprising his role as Marvel antihero The Punisher, has racked up nearly 4 million views since it hit the web last summer. Shankar's latest, "Truth in Journalism," stars Kwanten ("True Blood") as Venom, another popular »

Last year Dredd producer Adi Shankar teamed up with Thomas Jane for the rather splendid and completely unofficial Punisher "fan film" Dirty Laundry, and now Shankar has turned his attention to another popular Marvel character for his latest project, the Venom short Truth in Journalism.
Inspired by the cult 1992 Belgian crime mockumentary Man Bites Dog, Truth in Journalism is directed by Joe Lynch (Knights of Badassdom) and stars Ryan Kwanten (True Blood) as Eddie Brock, who is being followed by a French documentary crew looking to uncover the truth behind Brock's firing from the Daily Bugle. Naturally, a certain symbiote may have something to do with it...

During this year’s San Diego Comic-Con, Joe Lynch (Wrong Turn 2) debuted a brand new short film for people to enjoy, from producer Adi Shankar. While this doesn’t sound all that interesting at first, this is the same producer who brought us that ridiculously awesome Punisher short film, Dirty Laundry, which brought Thomas Jane back to the role. Truth in Journalism is sort-of a follow-up to that and focuses on another fan-favorite Marvel character. The full short film is now available online for all to enjoy!
Ryan Kwanten (True Blood) stars in this found-footage style, short film (which takes heavy influence from Dog Bites Man) which follows a New York City journalist being documented by a French film crew. It’s a slow burn kind of movie, but interesting enough to keep you watching.
Well, things got weird pretty fast! I kind of like this short. It’s not »

Heroes, meet horror.
It’s too professional to call a “fan film” but it’s definitely unofficial. Imagine The Blair Witch Project fused with a supervillain story. The gritty black-and-white tale is presented as found footage of a journalist-turned-vigilante who wants a documentary crew to immortalize his crimes achievements.

The director, Joe Lynch (of Wrong Turn 2 and the long coming Knights of Badassdom) returned to Comic Con this year with another Marvel inspired short that takes another fan favorite character and spins a clever little story for them. Running about 17 minutes, the film, entitled Truth in Journalism, follows a shady New York crime reporter who walks a French documentary crew through his day-to-day.
If you’ve gotten this far without knowing who the character in question is, then you deserve the surprise and I won’t spoil it here. I was impressed by Truth in Journalism even moreso than Dirty Laundry and I suspect fans are really going to eat this up, considering how poorly the character was treated in a more expensive recent production..

Last year at the San Diego Comic-Con, Thomas Jane, along with producer Adi Shankar and director Phil Joanou, got a big reaction when they unveiled a hugely unofficial yet incredibly satisfying short called Dirty Laundry, which saw Jane reprising the role of Frank Castle, Aka The Punisher. Shankar was back at the Con, this time with True Blood's Ryan Kwanten and director Joe Lynch for Truth In Journalism. Because some things are better seen without too much advance warning, carve out roughly 17 minutes and watch the short.Truth In Journalism finds Kwanten as a decidedly sleazy New York hack prowling the mean streets of the Big Apple for stories, usually those involving death or scandal. He’s being profiled by a French documentary crew following a traumatic incident he’s reluctant to talk about.Suffice to say, something happens, but we won’t get into the details for fear of spoiling anything. »
With producer Adi Shankar's newest short film Truth in Journalism hitting the web this morning (watch it here), I recently landed an exclusive interview with him. Written and directed by Joe Lynch (Wrong Turn II, Knights of Badassdom) and starring Ryan Kwanten (True Blood), Truth in Journalism is sure to excite comic book fans, but to say any more than that would ruin the surprise. I just suggest watching it as soon as possible so no one can spoil it. During the interview, Shankar talked about where the idea came from, casting Kwanten, the VFX, whether the shorts take place in the same universe, the reaction to Dirty Laundry, what they almost put after the credits in Dirty Laundry, and more. Hit the jump for what he had to say. Note: You should definitely watch the short Truth in Advertising before scrolling down as spoilers are discussed. - - »

Writer/director Joe Lynch’s (Wrong Turn 2) new short film Truth in Journalism has been released online, and Marvel fans should be pretty pleased with the finished product. The film premiered this year at Comic-Con and is a sort of follow-up to last year’s The Punisher short Dirty Laundry, which starred Thomas Jane and was produced by Adi Shankar. Truth in Journalism, which was also produced by Shankar, stars Ryan Kwanten as a New York City journalist whose work is being chronicled by a French documentary film crew. A rather exciting reveal takes place later in the short, but I won’t spoil that here on the front page. Hit the jump to check out the film for yourself. »

Last year, producer Adi Shankar (Dredd) and director Phil Joanou wowed Comic-Con 2012 audiences with the 10-minute short film Dirty Laundry, which saw Thomas Jane reprise his role as one of Marvel’s most famous antiheroes, The Punisher. This year, Shankar returned to San Diego with a new short film featuring the Marvel character Venom called Truth in Journalism.
The movie, directed by Joe Lynch (Knights of Badassdom) and featuring True Blood‘s Ryan Kwanten as Eddie Brock/Venom, is a darkly comic combination of 1980s era Spider-Man comics and the cult Belgian mockumentary Dog Bites Man (which follows a horrifying day in the life of a psychopathic serial killer).
We had a chance to talk to Shankar about the short as well as his unique philosophy on genre filmmaking:
Sr: I know that you’re a comic book fan from way back. What was ...
