“Man, you guys didn’t go see my Bigfoot movie.”
There’s this pair of shorts, the coolest shorts on Earth in my estimation, that I found on South Beach for $5. I think they’re from the ’70s. Every time I open a drawer to get some socks, I see the shorts and know that my day is going to be a-okay. Oddly, that’s sort of how I feel when I see actor Steve Zahn in a movie, any movie. Zahn has just been cast in The Perfect Getaway, a tourist thriller, from director David Twohy (The Chronicles of Riddick, The Arrival).
The film sort of recalls Forgetting Sarah Marshall stirred up with nasty serial killers, one of which will be played by Timothy Olyphant (Hitman, Deadwood). Zahn will play one half of a newlywed couple honeymooning in Hawaii that comes upon two hikers with murder on their minds. Don’t get blood on the lei, guys, and can we get a cooler title that does not remind one of that Kim Basinger-Alec Baldwin flop remake?
Zahn was last on screen in the maligned Sasquatch-meets-Justin Long comedy Strange Wilderness, and has two festival-trekking flicks, Sunshine Cleaning (7.5) and The Great Buck Howard (7), ready for viewing.
Discuss: Was Steve Zahn’s performance in Rescue Dawn his best yet? Any fans out there of David Twohy’s The Arrival?
