Stalked: Cheadle Traitor, Vikings, Beatles Help DVD
In this Stalked edition there are some big names for some interesting new films:
Don Cheadle, Guy Pearce, Jeff Daniels and Neal McDonough starring in a spy turned evil (maybe) thriller called Traitor.
Sean Bean, Ryan Phillippe and Abbie Cornish starring in a Viking film called Last Battle Dreamer.
The Beatles Help! is getting released on DVD with some cool extras.
Here's the lowdown...
Traitor is written and will be directed by Jeffrey Nachmanoff and tells the story of a rogue U.S. Special Forces operative who is working with terrorists to carry out acts of violence against the West, the twist is that it's unclear where his loyalties lie.
According to Variety the film will star a strong cast of Don Cheadle (who plays the spy in question), Jeff Daniels, Guy Pearce and Neal McDonough, as well as Archie Panjabi, Alyy Kahn and Said Taghmaoui.
Jeffrey Nachmanoff wrote The Day After Tomorrow and the Prince of Persia: Sands of Time script.
Sean Bean, Ryan Phillippe, and Abbie Cornish are set to star in a Viking film called Last Battle Dreamer from the Dutch Writer and Director Menno Meyjes. Yahoo news have the story where Meyjes describes the film as "a love story written in fire and blood."
Menno Meyjes wrote Max and The Siege as well as working on the story for Indiana Jones and the Last Crusade and Empire of the Sun.
The Beatles film Help! is getting a DVD release on October 29th. According to Teletext, the two disc set will include a thirty minute documentary on the making of the film, behind the scenes footage, and a booklet with comments from Director Richard Lester and Martin Scorsese. The deluxe version will have a copy of the script as well as a sixty page photo book. A must for Beatle fans I would think. No word on specifications or any remastering work though.
