“We’ve done two dead serious dark Batman films and now everyone agrees it’s time to lighten it up a bit. Russell Brand fits that bill to a T.” – Completely fictional Warner Brothers Executive
That shot is actually from the set of the upcoming remake of “Arthur” in which Brand plays the title role of a wealthy dude who gets so intoxicated he somehow manages to fall madly in love with Katy Perry. Or something. Rimshot. (Don’t bother sending hate mail you hordes of California Gurls – it’s just a joke)
Anyway; apparently in the updated version, Arthur has a Batmobile and enjoys fighting crime with a utility belt full of Jack Daniels.
And just like that they managed to sell me a ticket to a movie I otherwise had no interest in.
Well played Mr. Brand . . . Well played.
