#188 - 12 Monkeys Visit Nova
Parking has been a bit of an issue here at Nova recently because the site is overrun with abandoned vehicles. But it is all for an interesting cause.
According to the SyFy website:
"12 Monkeys, a drama based on the 1995 Universal Pictures film directed by Terry Gilliam, is coming to Syfy in January 2015. It stars Aaron Stanford (Nikita, X-Men: The Last Stand, X2), Amanda Schull (Suits, Pretty Little Liars), Noah Bean (Nikita, Damages) and Kirk Acevedo (Fringe) and follows the journey of a time traveler (Stanford) from the post-apocalyptic future who appears in present day on a mission to locate and eradicate the source of a deadly plague that will eventually decimate the human race. Additional cast members include Tom Noonan (Damages, Hell on Wheels) as the enigmatic face of the Army of the 12 Monkeys, and Emily Hampshire (Rookie Blue) as Jennifer Goines, a dangerous and unstable mental patient."
According to Wikipedia:
"12 Monkeys is a 1995 American science fiction film directed by Terry Gilliam, inspired by Chris Marker's 1962 short film La Jetée, and starring Bruce Willis, Madeleine Stowe, and Brad Pitt, with Christopher Plummer and David Morse in supporting roles. In 2013, Gilliam called it the second part of a dystopian satire trilogy begun with 1985's
and concluded with 2013's The Zero Theorem." Brazil
According to original director Terry Gilliam:
"Cole (main character) has been thrust from another world into ours and he's confronted by the confusion we live in, which most people somehow accept as normal. So he appears abnormal, and what's happening around him seems random and weird. Is he mad or are we?"
Christie, Gilliam, pp.226–230
I was thinking that it would be great to meet Terry Gilliam on set today, but he is not involved with this production.
Charles Roven (American Hustle, Man of Steel, The Dark Knight Trilogy) and Richard Suckle (American Hustle, The International), will Executive Produce the TV series.
And how can a blog post about something connected to Terry Gilliam not have a couple pics of the old gang?
A couple more pics from later in the day during filming.
