Australian director Mark Hartley (Not Quite Hollywood, Machete Maidens Unleashed, Patrick) visited Albert this weekend and sat down to film a personal Q&A for the upcoming documentary, ELECTRIC BOOGALOO: THE WILD, UNTOLD STORY OF CANNON FILMS. Follow the film's progress and keep your eyes peeled for it's release. It will feature a vast array of Cannon-era directors and will delve deeply into Albert's own tumultuous relationship with Cannon.
I just cast a young actress who will open and close CYBORG NEMESIS. The scenes will be shot out at Rhyolite, Nevada and these scenes will wrap the shooting of CYBORG NEMESIS. Then its up to the very talented mIchael McCarty to complete his sound design and dialogue editing for the film and Tony to complete the film's score to be done. The film will sound great in 7.1 and look great thanks to director of photography Michael Su's magic with his RED SCARLET! What is amazing is the cast of the film -- SASHA MITCHELL, DRU-ANNE PERRY, PAIGE BILLIOT, JOEI FULCO, JOSEPH CANNON, DANIEL FAUST, JESSICA DELGADO, KIM COUTURE, and two very special actors to complete this amazing cast!! My first balls out sci fi movie!! In outer space!! My thanks to Mike Levy Productions where we have shot 90% of the film. - Albert
Wonderful reaction to what will be the final version of ROAD TO HELL. This reaction was from the stream:
"First, I also feel the ending in SOF is Romantic, classic Rock n Roll and an American cowboy folklore (hero rides into the sunset). Wow, "Road to Hell" is powerful. The acting is intense by the talents and Michael Pare was outstanding. I found myself concerned for Tom Cody even after watching him behave like an animal. I could really see he was mentally broken but tried to live by a code of honor. The to women, were very unique characters. At times I saw them as Demons but what I found unique was that Tom and the two serial killers were all victims in some way. Very different than the typical black and white characters in mainstream movies. I was also heartbroken to find out McCoy was killed by Tom. But I wonder if Tom really did it since he said he never killed someone he loved. Maybe there is another story in the future.lol. Roxy Gunn was incredible. Her eyes were so big and full of innocence and pain and wow! she can sing some Rock n Roll. Thank you for allowing me to see this film. I wish the production success. Have a good day."
I'm glad this new version works as well as it seems to. It represents refinements and revisions of previous versions. - Albert.
In conjunction with the interview in Impact online, we are posting the entire director's cut of "Max Havoc and the Curse of the Dragon" online. It will stream. Please email us for details on how to access the stream beginning Monday night. - Albert.
I did a very long and detailed interview about the whole "Max Havoc" situation for Impact Online Magazine. It should be out next week. It has the real and truthful story about the film on Guam and in the years before the film came to shoot on Guam. Its the first factual article on the film. - Albert Pyun.
"...but one of his films in particular, has received so much controversial press over the years with allegedly false allegations made and quite a bit of mud being flung in Albert’s direction. That movie was Max Havoc: Curse of the Dragon... Albert talks to Mike Leeder about the project and for the first time gets to tell his side of the story..." (Click here to read full article)
The labyrinthine Avengers franchise, which includes the Captain America, Hulk, Iron Man, and Thor movies (as well as the Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D. TV series), has been a massive success for Marvel Studios. These movies are all entwined in a continuity that necessitates following all of its offshoots if one hopes to fully grasp what's happening in any one of them, a classic gimmick that Marvel has used to sell their comic books for decades. The upcoming Captain America sequel The Winter Soldier, which had a new teaser air during last night's Super Bowl, being part of the Avengers boondoggle, is sure to at least attract the usual crowd of devotees keeping up on continuity, making it yet another guaranteed win for Marvel.
