Film Actually News 03-06-2012

Welcome to the brand new Film Actually News for June 3rd, 2012. This week: More on the G.I. Joe Retaliation delay, more on Kick-Ass 2, Simon Pegg debunks Kahn rumour, Kathleen Kennedy takes control of Lucasfilm, The Avengers DVD/Blu-Ray details, Aaron Sorkin talks about Steve Jobs, Guy Ritchie takes on Treasure Island and 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.
