It's been very quiet on the IHTSBIH forum lately hasn't it? But thankfully Tucker promised that he'd be back "with a vengeance" on September 15th ... but um, this is like a week later and he's nowhere to be found.
There hasn't even been that much Tucker Max news.. a fan of his raped a girl apparently, and douchebag-in-training Ryan Holiday got caught red-handed editing Tucker's Wikipedia page to make Tucker look good. Gay love will make a man do strange things, huh Ryan?
Anyways, I've got a few things from the rumor mill that I'll post here, we'll see if they turn out to be true or not:
- Tucker mentioned that he had a big-name music producer on board a few months back. Apparently it's David Banner (he's trying to get into scoring the music for films now). The thing is though, he's not even "on board" - he's checked out about 2 tracks and has made no commitment to the film.
- If you've been following the production blogs of IHTSBIH you'll know that Tucker has a written a cameo for himself in the movie. Apparently he's playing a cop in the scene where the groom-to-be is in a jail cell.
-Tucker Max couldn't get a seat in the editing room for the film. Bob Gosse and Darko want him to stay far the fuck away from the editing process. I guess this is another thing that Ryan Holiday and Tucker Max have in common: they both think they should be allowed edit shit that they shouldn't.
-As yet IHTSBIH has been unable to find a distributor. Distribution companies don't want to touch the film, and apparently one or two Darko execs are pushing for it to emulate Michael Moore's recent net-only release, and a straight-to-DVD release at the same time.
Lets not forget that Darko mis-managed Southland Tales so badly that it only grossed $275,380 with a budget of $18 million or so. And it had Sarah Michelle Gellar playing a porn star - how could you not want to see that?
-Gawker has no intention of accepting Tucker's bet. Although they will continue to mock him, so I guess it's win-win.
The fact that Tucker hasn't been posting as much has meant I haven't had much to poke fun at. If you've got any leads or rumors post them in the comments section.
