Film Actually News 22-04-2012

Hosts: David McVay & Josh Philpott

Welcome to the brand new Film Actually News for April 22nd, 2012. This week Raging Bull 2 (yes, you read that right), Lobo, Francis Lawrence directing The Hunger Games sequel, Guy Pearce joins Iron Man 3, video games Need for Speed and Call of Duty may be coming to cinema near you and a prequel to Maniac Cop is on the way. All this and much, much more!

What used to be a boring, stuffy film section of the Film Actually podcast has been spun off into it’s own, we hope, more entertaining show. We don’t make the news, we just have fun with it. Film Actually News – Loud, Fast and Under Thirty Minutes… or your money back.
