first off let’s cut the MJ chatter…Sly knew him, I never heard him call MJ a pedophile although millions of folks around the world believe he was and an MJ biopic is not on Sly’s radar…seriously.
As for Church – Sly’s back in LA getting ready to start the editing process, look at what he has and what he may still need, if anything, and then make a plan to shoot Church and Arnold. Church will be shot on the east coast or perhaps LA…that is still TBD. Church is male not female os we can end that speculation as well.
As for Arnold, if you go back to the first press statement I made regarding Arnold’s participation you will note he was to play himself in a brief cameo that would be shot in LA. That has not changed although Sly has bantered about several scenarios for Arnold that make his character more meaningful to the story. He is not an Expendable and I highly doubt he will be running around in swat gear brandishing a weapon…but anything can happen! When it happens you can be sure I will keep you posted.
Brittany Murphy – in an early version of the script her role was quite big…but as time went on and Sly continuously reworked the script, her role diminished and became a bit part. Sly ahs a tremendous amount of respect for her and wants to work with her – when you see the film you will see what I mean. The role ended up being a glorified walk-on.
As of yesterday Empire still hadn’t posted the photos on their website…since we gave them an exclusive run I can’t post it for a few more weeks…if I find it online I will share. Total Film, another UK outlet will have an exclusive image of Jason in their August issue…
