Film Actually News 20-05-2012

Welcome to the brand new Film Actually News for May 20th, 2012. This week: The Rock heads for DC Comics, Ryan Reynolds might be the Highlander, Nicolas Cage and Mickey Rourke go toe to toe, The Incredible Hulk still coming to TV, Aaron Sorkin will adapt Steve Jobs biopic, and Hampton Fancher writes the Blade Runner sequel for Ridley Scott, all this and much, much more!

Hosts: David McVay, Josh Philpott & Richard Gray

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.
