German trailer for Houston & new interview

Fan Voice has a new interview with Garret. It’s mostly about Raising Hope, but there is also some stuff in there about T:SCC and Deadwood, and even an update on Arkansas Traveler:

Fan Voice: They used to do westerns all the time in Hollywood. Do you feel lucky that you got to do one in the modern era?
Garret Dillahunt: So lucky. Look, Deadwood, Jesse James, even No Country for Old Men in a way. I got to be on a horse and wear a cowboy hat. I feel so blessed to have been in so many and I hope to be in more. I’m producing a Civil War movie so I hope to be in more.

Fan Voice: What’s the Civil War movie?
Garret Dillahunt: It’s called Arkansas Traveler, written by one of my Deadwood cohorts. Me and John Hawkes, Ian McShane are attached. We’re just trying to finance it. Getting close.

Fan Voice: What is the premise?
Garret Dillahunt: It’s about a rebel soldier who’s in a Yankee prison. He’s really good at what he does which is kill people and fight. He’s tired and wants to go home. So it’s about him trying to go home but he keeps being *ssholes that have to be dealt with. I think it’s a beautiful story. It could be any soldier from any war.

And Houston has a release date in Germany (December 5). Here is a fun new trailer, with no dubbing thankfully:

Headhunter will premiere at the 2013 Sundance Film Festival under a new title: Houston. It will be one of the 12 films screened in the World Cinema Dramatic Competition. Big congrats to everyone!

The first photos from the film have appeared on Lichtblick Media’s site (production company). That’s the slippery Robert Wagner to the right.

New interview and some film updates

Raising Hope moves to the 8 pm slot this Tuesday and Garret said he’ll be promoting it left and right this week. So far, only one interview showed up, at Raising-Hope.us, and it’s the one he did for What’s Worth Watching a few days ago (see pic).

Katy Perry guests in this week’s episode. You can find an interview with her and Shannon Woodward at Hope for Fans. Promotional pics are here: “Single White Female Role Model.” I’ve also added pages for the next two episodes — “Spanks Butt, No Spanks” (March 13), “Poking Holes in the Story” (March 20) — and for the three films that have been missing from the site: Headhunter, Any Day Now and Revenge for Jolly!

The full lineup for this year’s Tribeca Film Festival hasn’t been announced yet, but Garret says that both Revenge for Jolly! and Any Day Now will be screened there next month. The festival runs from April 18 to April 29 this, so if you’re in New York around that time, you’d better catch them both.

Elsewhere on the film front, the first footage from Looper will be shown at Sony’s panel at WonderCon in Anaheim in a couple of weeks. From Comic-Con.org: Continue reading
