*Editor’s note: This interview originally appeared on Icons Of Fright’s sister site Massive Hysteria back in September of 2010. With this week’s DVD/Blu-Ray releases of both Mother’S Day and 11-11-11, we thought we’d present it again to the Icons audience completely unedited and uncut. Check it!
Considering director Darren Lynn Bousman’s impressive body of work, which spans over 3 Saw sequels, the crazy rock musical Repo! The Genetic Opera, an episode of NBC’s short lived Fear Itself TV series and the upcoming remake of Mother’S Day, it’s a surprise that we never got him in the hot seat for an extensive Icons Of Fright interview. So, with the launch of Massive Hysteria, we decided that he would make for the ideal interviewee to kick things off in style!
Bousman invited Mh over to his place for our career spanning lengthy chat, »

Its been nearly five years in the making but things are finally coming together for the full-length feature adaptation of Jay Baruchel and Seth Rogen's viral comedy short "Jay And Seth Vs. The Apocalypse," which featured the two as degenerate roommates living in squalor during an apocalypse.
Soon after the short landed online, Mandate Pictures jumped on board for the full-length version and, since then, things have only evolved further with Jonah Hill, James Franco, Craig Robinson, Danny McBride and Aziz Ansari all confirmed as fellow survivors in what will be Rogen and producing/writing partner Evan Goldberg's directorial debut. The film now looks to have settled on a new title with the previously shortened moniker "The Apocalypse" replaced by "The End Of The World," according to BoxOfficeMojo.
The film's plot itself has changed over time as well with the apocalypse now hitting during a party at Franco's »

Following swiftly on the heels of Nathan Fillion's casting as the swift-heeled Hermes, Anthony Stewart Head has been cast as Chrion in Percy Jackson and the Olympians: The Sea of Monsters. Yes, the man who played Giles in Buffy the Vampire Slayer and King Uther Pendragon in Merlin is returning to the fantasy genre once again. This makes two Whedonverse actors cast in the movie so far, both in roles recast from the first movie. Nathan Fillion is replacing Dylan Neal, and Anthony Stewart Head is replacing Pierce Brosnan, arguably proving once and for all that Rupert Giles beats James Bond. (By the way, if Judi Dench ever retires from the role: Anthony Stewart Head for M. Just saying.)
Of course, there could be any number of reasons for Percy Jackson 2’s recasting, including scheduling, budget, and cast chemistry. Or maybe the filmmakers are just toying with us. Awesomely. »
