Carla Gugino

Get your mind out of the gutter people. This is a family site, and we won’t be pandering to thoughts like the ones humping through your head right now. Per TotalFilm, Carla Gugino will be starring in MILF for director Franck Khalfoun. Who’s that? No clue, but the producer’s chair will be occupied by the very recognizable Alexandre Aja. Who’s that? He’s the director behind High Tension, Mirrors, and the brand new Piranha 3D. A resume like that leads one to believe MILF will not be a light and flirty romp, and the plot description seems to confirm that assumption. As we all know, MILF stands for Mother I’d Like (to) Fight, and it’s reportedly about a woman released from prison who goes about extracting revenge from some unlucky bitches who done her wrong. It’s early, and the above information is literally all we know as of right now, but I’d like to go on record anyway and call this as the best movie of 2011. Gugino is no stranger to action films having starred in visceral thrill-rides like Sin City, Watchmen, Race To Witch Mountain, and Robert Rodriguez’ Spy Kids trilogy. She’s also starring in Zack Snyder’s upcoming Sucker Punch.

Strong female characters are not the norm in Hollywood, but if you thought of one name that would use his directorial clout to bring a few more of them to the world, would it be Zack Snyder? The same man who was lambasted for being sexist after 300 is now being praised by his actresses for loving women and creating the best possible roles for them with his new movie. “Women are always looking for layers because women are complex creatures. For this movie, you don’t have to be just one thing. For men in action, you can be all things, but for women people see that maybe she’s dressed sexy so maybe it’s not empowering. It’s a tough line, but the truth is that women can be all of those things,” said star Carla Gugino. She got to be all of those things on Sucker Punch specifically because of Zack Snyder’s vision and appreciation for creating rounded female characters. Oh, and the footage they showed today has samurai warriors and a giant dragon. Feminism and fire-breathing. Something for everyone!

As the only literate Reject, it’s my duty to find the latest, the greatest and the untouched classics that would make great source material for film adaptations. I read so you don’t have to. This week, Print to Projector presents: American Virgin by Steven T. Seagle Art by Becky Cloonan and Frank Quitely “I’m a virgin.” Synopsis Young Christian author and evangelist Adam Chamberlain extols the beauty of abstinence on speaking tours but has his faith and humanity tested when he learns that his girlfriend Cassie has been beheaded while doing missionary work in Africa. He joins up with his sexually liberal step-sister to go find out what happened, leaving his Neocon mother and delinquent brother behind to spin further down a rabbit hole of cross-dressing, pornography and God.

SXSW Film 2010

It is not often that you have a chance to sit opposite of true beauty. Even when you have the chance, it is easy to clam up and lose your thoughts. So needless to say, I had to keep it cool while opposite Elektra Luxx director Sebastian Gutierrez. On a side note, I also interviewed Carla Gugino and Malin Akerman.

Elektra Luxx

When director Sebastian Gutierrez woke up this morning, he probably saw it ending a little differently. Just a little, I’m sure. He was likely nervous. His film, Elektra Luxx — the much anticipated sequel to 2009′s Women in Trouble — was due to make its world premiere at the Paramount theater in Austin in the prime slot of SXSW 2010′s opening night. That is, until something unfortunate happened.
