Well, any time we hear of a movie starring two cryptozoological creatures, of course, we’re interested. And then throw in Lorenzo Lamas and my one-time future wife (unbeknownst to her), and it sounds like an instant cinematic cryptozoological classic, on the scale of King Kong or Jaws!
Here’s a nice story from MTV about how the buzz for the film has sort of taken Deborah by surprise.
From that article —
The whimsical nature of the film attracted Gibson to the project. “I remember when I got the script, I just thought, ‘This is so much fun. I cannot say no to this,’ ” she recalled. “Which I think is probably what other people sense too. Obviously, the title alone makes people say, ‘What?!’ And then put my name with that title, and it’s an absolute bizarre combo.”
I had the great pleasure of interviewing my crush Ms. Gibson about two years ago for an article in conjunction with a concert she was putting on at one of the casinos. She was funny, smart, down-to-earth and an absolute professional — I even managed to keep my cool when she started talking about her infamous Playboy pictorial. (Different 80s band, but “My blood runs cold; angel is a centerfold!”) She did say, “I’m waiting for my big Cher comeback hit!” Maybe this is it? I hope for her it is — she truly seems like a decent person in an industry bereft of them.
Anyway, this looks like it’s going to be a lot of fun, and as it’s going directly to DVD, certainly worth a few bucks to rent. It’s not every day we get to see giant squids and mega sharks running rampant while Deborah Gibson tries to stop them! Only in my dreams …
