So here I am, big night.

It's the red carpet

premier for my documentary.

Today alone I've gotten calls

from JJ,

Steven, Harvey,

not to mention every big agent

in town.

A month ago they treated me like

dog shit

on the bottom of their

expensive Italian loafers.

Now, they wanna know what I'm

doing next,

who I'm in talks with.

They're all trying to sell me

on what they can do for me.

I made my deal.

I did the hard work.

I mean, how else do they think I

got here?

So, f*ck 'em.

This isn't exactly how I

pictured things happening,

but you take the hand that

life deals you, right?

You fake it till you make it.

Die while you try.

I mean, look at me,

I'm still filming.

Movie's over, man.

Move on.

Move on, you piece of shit.

- Here you go sir.

Good size crowd.


Hello and welcome.

Welcome everyone to the

premier of the movie

that has not only taken

Hollywood by storm,

but the entire world,

Darkness Reigns.

I'm excited too.

Now, we are so lucky

to have the filmmaker here with

us tonight

to introduce the film.

So, please join me in

welcoming, Daniel Whitaker.

Hello everyone, thank you

for coming to see the movie.

Been an odd journey really.

As I'm sure you're aware,

a lot of crazy things happened

that I was able to capture.

P-, people were hurt,

uh, killed,

but I survived to tell

the story of what happened

on that movie set nearly

a year ago.

You're gonna see

most of the crazy

and the unexplainable

things that happened.

Most but not all.

Some things are just a

little too gruesome to show,

and well, some of the

family wouldn't cooperate,

but, uh, I completely

understand it,

and think you will once you see

the film.

Some things just don't need to

be seen,

but I shot a lot and I

c-captured a lot of

crazy things.

Uh, before we show the film,

I'm supposed to tell you a

little bit

about how this all came about.

- I'm rolling, Aaron.

Cool, cool, just spray the room.

You know, get some B

roll, whatever looks good.

- I know, I got it.

And what's this?

Oh, this is part of our cast of

our movie.

- S-, s-, say the

name of the movie when you can.

Oh yeah, right.

This is part of the

cast of Defanatus Soul.

- And who's she?

- Oh, this is

Rebecca Logan.

You might have seen her in,

uh, uh,

Dark Midnight or, um--

The Wiccan Altar.


We just closed the deal

on Casper Van Dien.

This is huge people,

we got our name.

This is the director of

Defanatus Soul, Jacob Bale.

Hey, uh, do you mind if we shoot

with you

for a little bit?

Yeah, that's fine.

Alright, I'm just gonna ask you

some questions off camera,

if you just wanna play to me.

Go for it.

- You got your

focus and everything?


So, you got your cast,

how's that feel?

Yeah, we just locked in

Casper Van Dien

from, uh, Starship Troopers,

Sleepy Hollow, yada, yada, yada.

I mean, he's,

he's an awesome get.

When you do these

kinds of films,

the distributors demand

a name actor

and we just got a great one.

- That's great.

Did you have any name

actors turn you down?

Hell yeah.

Slater wanted too much money.

All the Baldwins were busy.

Couldn't even get Liotta

to read the thing. [laughs]

But, no, we're, we're

thrilled with Van Dien.

He's always been

our first choice.

- Cool, cool.

Tell me a little bit about

Rebecca Logan.

Oh, Rebecca Logan, yeah,

she's great.

She's got a great string of

horror films under her belt,

so she's built in a fan base.

And plus she's not afraid

to show her boobs. [laughs]

I'm kidding, don't,

don't use that. [laughs]
