I’m really excited about this one! Methinks this is a heavy Oscar contender that will catch fuego!



WooooW!!! Texas rules you Hollywood pussies!

So excited to see this movie. Orson looks awesome. The only thing to make me more excited is no Zac Efron. But beggars can’t be choosers.



Was this film made in Austin? I’d love to visit one day.


#3

I’m sorry but this movie looks like crap.



Bad casting choice with Zac Efron. He brings in kids (8-12 year old girls). What kid knows anything about fuckin’ Orson Welles? The movie will be the backstory to them, as long as Efron is on screen.



Bad casting choices=failed movie.



Also, why does Hollywood give a fuck about Welles now? Hmmm. w#r





You know who should play Orson Welles? Nic Cage. ;D

Hollywood probably doesn’t give a fuck about him, I mean this is Richard Linklaters flick right?

But Efron is in it. EFRONNNNNNN!!!!!!!!!!!!!! ;D

Also Dazed and Confused and School of Rock (I like Jack Black, so suck it) is all that I like of his.

omg, school of rock was a linklater movie? no wonder i hated the shit out of it. it made dazed and confused look good by comparison. geez i just threw up a little in my mouth.



but who better to play such a charismatic figure than a highly charismatic actor? get off your high horses, zac efron is a nice choice i’d say.

Jack Black is a god.

Interesting subject for a movie. but, I’m hot and cold on this one. Not an Efron fan.

What’s wrong with Dazed and Confused? It’s an awesome film. Matthew McConaughey playing a sleazy ephebophile. What more could you ask for?


#10

linklater is great and im a big welles fan but this looks like formulaic biopic stuff.


#11

Before Sunrise and Before Sunset were perfect. For these two movies, I do respect Linklater. And The School of Rock was funny, at least for Jack Black performance.


#12

Who here likes Tenacious D since we are on the Jack Black subject a little?


#13

Their vids are funny though in terms of music, really not my cup of tea so I get easily bored.
