Exclusive! Film Star Interview
Spotweld Badgerinversion first came to the public’s attention when he starred as the third corpse from the left in the opening scene from the Hollywood Historical Pictures adaptation of Jane Austen’s Pride and Prejudice.
In Hollywood Historical Pictures’ ‘re-imagining’ of Pride and Prejudice, the heroine of the novel, Elizabeth Bennet – was recast as an undercover FBI agent, played by Pumpkin Dropincentre, and Mr. Darcy (Gravelly Chinstubble) became seemingly involved in Mr. Wickham’s drug-running gang. With the action moved to the Florida coast, and with most of the film being more about car and speedboat chases, gunfights and some of the largest explosions ever seen in a major motion picture, there are some who believe that the film tended to lose some of the depth of Austen’s classic novel.
However, the film’s producers have pointed out that the film took more box office money in its first weekend than the novel has done since it was first published over 190 years ago.
As teen heartthrob Badgerinversion himself said, ‘You have to figure that if this Austen – I’m her greatest fan, of course, I’ve seen all the movies of her books – had put more car chases and gunfights in her novels then maybe she would have sold a few more. All this relationship stuff she seemed to like, you have to wonder just how big is the single women living alone, with a cat or two, demographic really is. A few more big explosions and she could have been working in Hollywood from the get go.’
Of course, Badgerinversion has now became the world’s biggest grossing male lead, taking over from the now-aging Gravelly Chinstubble, when he signed to take the lead role in Hollywood Historical Pictures Forthcoming Oliver Twist. As the film’s pre-release publicity has it:
This is the story of one young, and ruggedly good-looking, orphan’s battle against the Florida drug gangs as they expand their evil drug and terrorist organisations into deep space.
Fagin the manager of a intergalactic boyband created on his reality show Universe Idol, makes Oliver Twist the lead singer, promising the boy he will help Oliver in his quest to find his natural mother, who was least heard of working as an undercover drug squad agent for the FBI.
However, Fagin has Oliver trapped in a watertight contract. So, it is not until the fierce gun battle between Oliver and the TV show’s lawyers that Oliver his able to make his escape and continue his quest, meeting some unlikely allies on the way.
Alone, against all the odds, Oliver Twist and his unlikely band of intergalactic freedom fighters take on the might of the galactic drug gangs.
‘What I really liked about the Oliver Twist role was that it gave me the chance to pilot my own spaceship when I rescued the Galaxy Princess, Nancy, from the Evil Dark Star Lord – Bill Sykes’s - prison tower,’ said Badgerinversion. ‘That Chuck Dickens was a hell of a writer; I’ve seen all his films. Although, some of them did seem a little bit old fashioned for today’s market.’
