A Scanner Darkly

There is a trailer for the upcoming movie adaptation of Philip K. Dick’s book by the same name. The movie was written for the screen and directed by Richard Linklater. He uses the same “rotoscoping” technique that made his movie Waking Life innovative. The movie stars Keanu Reeves, Robert Downey, Jr, Woody Harrelson and Wynona Ryder. The trailer looks awesome and I hope the movie has great success. If you haven’t read the book, I suggest you read it now.

The Passion of the Clerks

Kevin Smith’s upcoming sequel to Clerks, tentatively titled The Passion of the Clerks, now has its own site. The Clerks 2 site is of course powered by WordPress. WP keeps on growing. Check the site out for news about Clerks, including video journals, production notes, and cast news. The movie, if anything like the original Clerks, should be good. I have not been let down by a Kevin Smith movie yet.
