So, once upon a time, there was a movie released by a major studio called “Weekend At Bernie’s,” wherein a couple of dudes manage to convince everybody around them that their dead boss is actually alive. Hey, it was the late ’80s and times were wild. But is the forthcoming “Swiss Army Man” riffing on the same vibe?
Deadline reports that Paul Dano, Daniel Radcliffe, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead will team up for the movie, directed by Daniel Kwan and Daniel Scheinert aka The Daniels, about a man who befriends a dead body in the wilderness and takes him on his journey home. No word yet on who is playing what but I’m going go with Dano as the man, Radcliffe as the “dead guy,” with Winstead as someone who has to deal with these two.
Production starts in July so….see you at Sundance? At any rate, we’re pretty sure this will be quite different than The Daniels’ video for “Turn Down For What” which nabbed them an MTV Video Award for Best Direction.
