Filmmaker Chuck Russell (THE MASK, A NIGHTMARE ON ELM STREET 3: Dream Warriors, ERASER, THE SCORPION KING, THE BLOB ‘88) shares his unique career journey, provides candid insight to his artistic process, and is unabashedly worshipped by two of his biggest fans in the known universe (Adam and Joe) in this absolutely phenomenal episode. From his early beginnings in live theater… to writing with Academy Award nominee Frank Darabont… to how he approaches the casting process… to what it was like working with huge stars like Jim Carrey, Arnold Schwarzenegger, Robert “Freddy Krueger” Englund, and (a then unknown) Cameron Diaz… to how he pulled off his groundbreaking remake of THE BLOB (the film that Joe has always proclaimed to be “the reason why he became a director”)… this super-sized and unforgettable conversation is a true joy to listen to as the three filmmakers openly talk shop and relate to each other’s cinematic philosophies.
Are you enjoying what the guys (and Arwen) do for you every single week? Then step up and support THE MOVIE CRYPT by donating to “Feeding Arwen A Treat” or by buying something in the BUY STUFF store on www.ArieScope.com. Without your support- THE MOVIE CRYPT’s never-ending stories will be swallowed up by “the nothing” and slip away forever. So, please… return some love to the guys before it’s too late and you find yourself sitting with the “Rockbiters,” sadly staring at your empty podcast ap, and remorsefully saying: “They look like big, good, strong hands, don’t they? I always thought that’s what they were.”
