Hello There! This is Adam Frazier and you are listening to Skull-Face Island, the official movie podcast of Geeks of DOom! As always I’m joined by Rosemary’s Baby Daddy, David Allen. And the Hansel to my Gretel, producer Tim Grant.
Today on the Show: We’ll discuss the latest installment in the James Bond franchise, Sam Mendes‘ Skyfall, starring Daniel Craig as 007. We’ll boot-up the Geek-O-Matic TeleFax for some breaking news: including Jamie Foxx in talks to play Electro in Marc Webb‘s Amazing Spider-Man 2, Jaime King & Jamie Chung join Robert Rodriguez‘s Sin City: A Dame To Kill For, Bryan Singer To Direct X-Men: Days Of Future Past, and Skyfall screenwriter John Logan is writing the next two James Bond movies.
For our third segment: Ladies and gentlemen, I want to welcome you to the treehouse for a debate that may destroy Skull-Face Island as we know it. And by that I mean, David and I may kill each other with word arrows and mind bullets, or at the least may never speak to each other again over the topic we are about to discuss… Star Wars.
As many of you know, Disney just acquired George Lucas’ Lucasfilm for $4 billion – Star Wars: Episode 7 will be released in 2015, and Episodes 8 and 9 will follow. Disney chairman and CEO Bob Iger says they “have a pretty extensive treatment of the next three movies.”
Tim has had to endure hours of quarrelling between David and I, so he has orchestrated this debate to bring about some kind resolution so he can “get some goddamn sleep.”
If you missed our previous transmissions, let me explain how this works. In the year 1991, US Flight 1313 experienced a mysterious, magnetic anomaly somewhere over the South Pacific. Engines failed, pilots cursed and prayed to their Gods, and three boys (that’s us!) washed ashore on Skull-Face Island, which of course is an ISLAND in the SHAPE of a SKULL! How cool is that!?
After exploring the dark interior of the island with machetes and bullwhips, we found an old communications array. Here’s the weird thing, it still works. Not only does it work, this thing is like Netflix, Amazon Instant, Video on Demand, and Apple TV combined – it’s got all the latest movies and television shows”¦
