#441 — M.J. Bassett
The Empire Film Podcast
This week's episode of the Empire Podcast sees us go rogue with M.J. Bassett, the director of new VOD title Rogue, in which Megan Fox does battle with a very angry lion. M.J. chats with Chris Hewitt about making the movie, working with Megan Fox, making her peace with a negative Empire review of her first movie, Death Watch, and coming face to face with a black mamba.
Then, in the virtual podbooth, Chris is joined by Helen O'Hara, James Dyer, and Beth Webb for an episode in which they discuss saying painful goodbyes to beloved TV shows, engage in a very animalistic edition of The Three Fact Structure, mull over the greatest haircut and shaving scenes in cinema, discuss the week's movie news including Wonder Woman 1984's new release strategy, and review Steve McQueen's latest Small Axe offering, Lovers Rock, as well as Rogue and Train To Busan Presents: Peninsula. Oh, and Chris mounts a desperate campaign to be verified by Instagram.
