    Why didn’t this press release make it in the trades today? Seems suspect….. I mean, nothing, zilch, nada, in the TRADES for movies? That’s highly suspicious. Just seems like a hype move, I would like to see the movie made don’t get me wrong, but to film it and release it in 6 months? not gonna happen in this universe….
