Let's face it -- just about everybody has a MySpace account. There is nothing like going into a bar, talking to a girl that looks far beyond the high school years, and then having her ask what your MySpace account is. Damn near priceless if you ask me.
Well, it turns out that MySpace isn't only for those looking to make friends or become online swingers. Movie studios have already discovered the benefits of MySpace by hosting special film pages on the site and now directors, actors and even producers are using the site as a channel to fans and general moviegoers.
Don't believe me? Take Tim Story for instance.
Tim Story Updates on Fantastic Four and the Silver Surfer
Tim Story has created a few blogs on his MySpace profile (timkstory) to keep fans up to date on the current developments for the upcoming sequel Fantastic Four and the Silver Surfer.
June 6th Update
Well just got to Vancouver. It's going down! This film's gonna definitely be bigger than the last. Some serious surprises coming. (Is that how you spell surprise. That first "r" always gets me) Got some shit for the fan boys and still keep the light hearted feel for the kids and families. Hard mix. A lot of people don't get that, but whadayagonnado?!
I've been going crazy prepping this thing. Just got back from Vancouver, which is of course where we will be filming the movie, and things are shaping up. It's the hard part of the phase where I have to make the ..'s work. Even with 100+ mil, there's never enough money. Looking at the plan for the new Baxter Building interior and it's going to be hot. We're going more high tech and we're giving Reed Richards and the gang more gadgets this time around. The "4" logo will be everywhere as we are used to seeing it. They are a corporation now.
I'm going to use some looks that have been inspired from more recent comics, like in "The Ulimate Exstinction" and a little from the "Ultimate Fan Four" series. I know what you're thinking "Kirby, Kirby, Kirby!" There will be much props given to Kirby throughout the movie.
What I'm really excited about is the Fantasticar. It's coming guys in all it's glory. Wait until you see it. It's going to split in pieces and all that. Johnny and Ben fight over who should fly it. All the fun you expect.
Check out all of Tim Story's blog over at MySpace.
