Almost a year ago I did some extra work on August Rush, a film starring Jonathan Rhys Myers, Keri Russell, Robin Williams, Freddie Highmore, and Terrance Howard. I spent four freeeeeeeeezing nights in Central Park from 11pm to 6am and the scenes they shot with us were some of the last scenes they were shooting.
I just checked the Internet Movie Database to see when in the world this film is coming out, as I haven’t seen any trailers or anything for it. They don’t have any trailers listed, no picture or image for the film, and the release date they have only says “February 2007.”
What a bunch of liars.
I also looked up the only other project I worked on while in New York that still hasn’t come out, a film entitled Devil You Know starring Lena Olin. Imagine my surprise when I saw that the release date was “2006” and it only played in New York City. No box office stats or anything. It is my suspicion this little gem was probably a direct-to-video deal gone awry, but I haven’t been able to find anything else on it at IMDb.com or Amazon.com.
Let’s go, film people. You’ve had a year. Ed’s tired of waiting.
