He wants those days to happen again and was the driving force behind the new Paul...

Welcome to My Crowdfund, We’ve Got Fun and Games…

Multimillionaire Guns ‘n Roses guitarist Slash is producing a horror film and he needs your help! Specifically, he needs your money. Over at the crowdfunding site “Fanbacked” (which is a new one on me) Slash has set-up a page where fans can contribute money to help make the film The Hell Within which – after scouring the site for a solid 5 minutes – I have no idea how much they need. Still, the trailer for the film...

Here Comes solo Han Solo

Things are about to get zany in the world of the Star Wars franchise and frankly, I’m not sure how I feel about it.

I’m confused.) have been hired on to direct the Han Solo standalone feature. Hmmm. While undoubtedly it’s silly of me to question: A) The Star Wars...
