Morning Call Sheet: 'Evil Dead 4,' Bond 23, Restraining Orders, & The Boys

DECLARATION ENTERTAINMENT STARTS PRODUCTION ON FIRST FEATURE “THE ARROYO”

Some talk-talk-talk about changing the culture, others set out to do something. Declaration Entertainment is a “grass-roots film-financing movement that turns you, the audience, into Citizen Producers to reclaim American values and put them back on the screen.”

Started by Bill Whittle and Jeremy Boreing, the idea is to give those of you interested in changing the culture a real opportunity to get involved in a film project determined to do just that.

Please congratulate and help to support DE. Production of their first feature, “The Arroyo” has begun. Much more here.

BRUCE CAMPBELL IS ON TWITTER, CONFIRMS ‘EVIL DEAD 4’

No kidding, it was hard to choose which piece of news to place in that headline first. It’s a Sophie’s Choice of breaking news that makes me glad to be alive. You can follow Bruce Campbell on Twitter at — wait, hold on; I have to do that — @GroovyBruce.

More “Evil Dead” with Groovy Bruce? In Heaven they dream of such things….

And don’t forget to get your Bruce Campbell fix every Thursday night with “Burn Notice.” (Full disclosure: my brother is an editor on the show and my wife is addicted to it).

MEGA-PRODUCER JERRY BRUCKHEIMER RAVES ABOUT ‘”LT. DAN BAND: FOR THE COMMON GOOD”

“A wonderful and inspiring chronicle of Gary and his fellow musicians as they journey across America and the world. But the real point of the film, as it should be, is to shine a much-needed light on those in uniform, whose tremendous sacrifices can never–and must never–be taken for granted.”

There’s still time to catch a screening of the film. Great band. Great cause.

BOND 23 IS IN PRODUCTION AND PEOPLE CARE THAT THE NEW MONEYPENNY ISN’T CAUCASIAN

Race. Race. Race. Race. Race. Nobody cares except people who think they matter. How about Bond 23 not sucking like “Quantum of Solace?” If Moneypenny’s purple and the director uses a tri-pod and the women are hot and the violence is violent and that license to kill gets a workout, no one cares about the rest. Shut up, race mongers. We’re past this. Why aren’t you? Again … shut up.

CLASSIC PICK FOR THURSDAY JULY 14TH, 2011

TCM:

11:45 PM EST — Abbott And Costello Meet The Mummy (1955): Two bumblers get mixed up with Egyptian grave robbers and a murderous mummy. Dir: Charles Lamont Cast: Bud Abbott, Lou Costello, Marie Windsor. BW-79 mins, TV-G, CC,

The Boys would go on to make on last film together, “Dance With Me, Henry,” but I consider “Meet the Mummy” to be the last true Abbott and Costello film — and it’s a splendid one at that. After 15 years and over 30 feature films, this classic duo had very few stumbles and closed out their career on a memorably hilarious high note.

It just doesn’t get any better than Abbott and Costello. Their worst effort beats 90% of the crap thrown at us today. Introduce your kids to their classic canon now, before it’s too late. Before MTV and hipsterism robs them of their souls.
