I’m a bit stoked at all the press Jay’s been getting recently over his newest projects! True most of it is directed at Sorceror’s Apprentice, but this time Jay talks to io9.com about Jay and Seth Vs. The Apocalypse:
“Seth and I have a lot of things going on, so we just got to figure out a time in the year where it makes sense for us to carve out at least six months to do it,” he said. “We’ve been working on it and writing it for the past two years. There’s a studio that wants to make it, so everybody wants to do it. It’s just a matter of timing. I’d say that we at least start making the thing in some capacity by the end of this year.”
He also talked a little bit about Teresa Palmer and her possible role in Mad Max:
I know, that just got taken everywhere. Listen, Teresa is one of my best friends and I was just real proud of her and gushing, bragging [that] someone I know who is in a movie as cool as that. Because Road Warrior is one of the first movies my mother ever showed me as a kid. So I have said too much already. I’ll leave it to Teresa’s representation to confirm or deny anything. I’ve seen that thing reprinted in a bunch of languages. So, no I’ve already said too much.
According to MovieWeb, Jay talked to the Australian Herald Sun about the possible casting of Teresa Palmer for the female lead in the newest Mad Max film:
Actor Jay Baruchel told reporters that Palmer has been cast. “”She gets to work with him, and she’s (going to be) doing Mad Max 4 with Miller,” Baruchel said, adding that, “She’s the main chick in Fury Road.”
