Posting on the project’s Kickstarter page, which was used to fund an animatic test reel featuring the voices of Clancy Brown and Paul Giamatti, Blur shared the following update:

With your generous contributions, we were able to finish a full storyboard animatic of the film, complete with amazing voice acting, sound design, and music. This template for the film sold the producers and studio on the potential of The Goon and we’re beginning a new round of development.

Carla Gugino has been cast in the upcoming action-thriller Gunpowder Milkshake as the film’s final lethal assassin cast. Gugino will join Karen Gillan, Lena Headey, Michelle Yeoh, Angela Bassett, and Paul Giamatti in the film. The plot for the movie has been kept pretty under wraps, but we do have the description, which describes it as, “a high-concept assassin story that has a rich mythology and spans several generations. Gugino will play part of a secret sisterhood who come together to help Gillan’s character when things go south.” That sounds pretty cool.

Navot Papushado is directing, and the film will begin shooting this summer in Berlin. Gunpowder Milkshake is set to be released sometime in 2020. This has a great cast and an interesting story to start with. I’d be down for watching this movie. How about you?

This Billions review contains spoilers.

Billions Season 4 Episode 9

Just because last week’s episode of Billions was titled “Fight Night” doesn’t mean that the penultimate episode of season four, “American Champion,” is without any fighting. On the contrary, the latest entry in Andrew Ross Sorkin, Brian Koppelman, and David Levien’s recently renewed Showtime series is chock-full of instigations, threats and outright villainy. This is what Billions fans have come to expect after nearly four full seasons of scenery-chewing drama, and “American Champion” doesn’t disappoint.

This is due to many things. Wendy (Maggie Siff) and Chuck Rhoades (Paul Giamatti) are still struggling to cope with there irrevocably damaged marriage. Meanwhile, Chuck and his father (Jeffrey DeMunn) find themselves in an ever-tightening vice thanks to the efforts of Bryan Connerty (Toby Leonard Moore) and his boss,

Action thriller Gunpowder Milkshake is putting together an impressive cast, headlined by Guardians of the Galaxy’s Karen Gillan.
