We asked Running With Arnold director Dan Cox whether the film’s entry into South by Southwest thrilled him at all, or if the hullabaloo over Alec Baldwin’s second thoughts about participating in the film sucked the joy out of it. And speaking of Alec, will we be hearing his voice on the film?
Here’s his answer:
I live for hullabaloo (nicely spelled word). The festival entry is stupendous, phenomenal, outrageous, name your ecstatic adjective. I’ve never had a film in a festival. In fact, I’ve never had a film at all. But either way, I’d like to thank the academy for its…well, we’ll wait on that speech.
So, yes, we’re using Baldwin. He’s not getting out this easily.
As mentioned earlier, the next film will be an inside look at the graft and grime bubbling in the Pellicano pen.
Great. They’ll be no controversy surrounding that one.
