#429 — Amy Seimetz, Annette Bening
The Empire Film Podcast
Bona fide Hollywood legend Annette Bening steps into our custom-built virtual podbooth this week, telling Chris Hewitt all about her new film, Hope Gap. The duo also talk about dancing, Dick Van Dyke, and being pulled over by the accent police. Chris also talks to Amy Seimetz, the talented writer/director of the pitch-black comedy-horror, She Dies Tomorrow, about recruiting her cast, Twitter, and the infectiousness of ideas.
Either side of those, Chris is joined by Helen O'Hara, James Dyer, and Amon Warmann for a bumper-sized edition featuring the quickest Film Fact Section yet; much discussion of Sean Connery, as he turns 90 (which means many, many Sean Connery impressions); an extended chat about the news emerging from last week's DC Fandome; and reviews of Hope Gap, She Dies Tomorrow, and The Lost Prince.
Oh, and... Forget Maui.
