Long before he directed the best movie in the Star Wars saga, Rian Johnson was a student at Star Wars creator George Lucas’s old stomping grounds: the University of Southern California School of Cinematic Arts.
In the mid-90s, Johnson made a short film called Evil Golf Ball From Hell!!!, and starting this Friday, that movie is coming to Gunpowder & Sky’s science fiction label DUST for a limited time. Learn more about the short and how you can see it below. Read More »
Lionsgate has acquired the big screen rights to Fantasy Flight Games’ popular sci-fi strategy board and miniature game series Dust and announced that Rawson Marshall Thurber will be directing the movie adaptation for producer Dan Lin (The Lego Movie, Sherlock Holmes).
I almost included this game in my list of board game movies that Hollywood should make next, but did not know enough about the game itself. I’ve never played it, but the art has always stood out to me. The story is set in an alternate history steampunk-themed version of the 1940s where World War II never ended and the world is divided into three sides: the Allies (the US, the Commonwealth, and the French colonies); the Axis (not led by Hitler); and the SSU, a union of the USSR and China. In this landscape the discovery of a new alien resource allows our scientists to create cool-looking combat mechs for this new battle.
Find out more about the Dust game movie adaptation after the jump.
