Earlier this week, Dr. Cole Abaius and I were having a discussion about a new brand of director — the super-accessible kind who are now connecting with us, and their audience through the social media site Twitter. Whereas they were previously just the folks behind the camera and in the hot seat during junket weekend prior to their release, directors like Up in the Air‘s Jason Reitman (@JasonReitman), The Brothers Bloom director Rian Johnson (@rcjohnso) and even that Clerks guy Kevin Smith (@ThatKevinSmith) are now just a tweet away. It is interesting to see them so connected, so close to the folks who buy tickets that pay their salaries.
Then, there are the on-set tweeters. The publicist for The Expendables has been tweeting like crazy about Sly Stallone, Arnold Schwarzenegger and everyone else who’s come to that set. And Overture Films has someone on set with Breck Eisner’s The Crazies (@TheCraziesFilm), tweeting live from the Georgia set.
But that’s not all.. Today, we got word that Milla Jovovich has been tweeting from the set of her upcoming movie Resident Evil: Afterlife. The series, from producer/director Paul W.S. Anderson, has a solid following and to her credit, Milla is actually saying a few interesting things here and there. Fans of the series might want to give her a follow: @MillaJovovich.
Here’s an example, in which she tweets about her character Alice’s sweet hardware in the fourth film.
so, for anyone interested in the guns i use in this movie, here is the list:
2 smith&wesson 460 revolvers, 2 sawed off double barrel shotguns,1MPSK submachine gun,2MP9 submachine guns and 1 M4 assault rifle. phew!
Not the most interesting thing you’re going to read today, but still pretty cool. Beats working at your cubicle.
