Coming Soon: The Thing
I have been asked to interview Eric Christian Olsen and/or Mary Elizabeth Winstead about their new movie, The Thing, a prequel to the 1982 John Carpenter film of the same name. The film was a remake of the 1951 The Thing from Another World which was based on the 1938 novella Who Goes There? by John W. Campbell, Jr. The Thing has earned a sort of cult following over the years, so the release of this prequel on October 14th will be critically observed by its loyal fanbase.
Eric Christian Olsen is currently a regular on NCIS: Los Angeles. His most well-known performances are in Not Another Teen Movie, Dumb & Dumberer: When Harry Met Lloyd, The Hot Chick and The Last Kiss.
Mary Elizabeth Winstead has earned a “scream queen” reputation having appeared in horror films such as Final Destination 3, Black Christmas and Death Proof. Most know her from Disney’s Sky High andScott Pilgrim v. the World.
I am still waiting for confirmation, so it’s still not 100%, but I’m definitely excited and hope to get the chance to interview these two for the newspaper and for those of you that read this blog! I’ll update as soon as I know.
