Be afraid, be very afraid

Paul Gascoigne, movie star. Yes, really:


"Football Legend Paul Gascoigne is to feature alongside Lois Winstone, daughter of Ray Winstone, in the action/horror feature 'FINAL RUN'. Billed as a cross between Blackhawk Down and Alien, Final Run is set in the not-too-distant future, following a group of survivors after a devastating alien invasion has assimilated the vast majority of the human population. Paul Gascoigne plays a misguided survivor, who is forced to decide between his own survival, or humanities! (sic) Paul Gascoigne, a lifelong genre fan, lends his considerable expertise as both Producer and feature actor. As a part of the key creative team, Paul's input into the script and vision are invaluable".

Expertise as an actor? I do not suppose that dropping like a sack of coal after an innocuous tackle really bears comparison with studying at RADA or treading the boards at the RSC. And just when did he get his Equity card I wonder.

And there's a MySpace page for it, with the director namechecking, inter alia, David Lean, Michael Mann and two chaps called 'Georige Lucas' and 'Steven Speilberg'. Very professional.

They have abandoned the equity card thing due to the on rush of celebs from reality tv.

Bags packed and ready to roll.
