that's a wrap

we wrapped the wrestler about five hours ago. appropriately we were in phillie at the former ecw arena shooting a few inserts for mickey's war against the necrobutcher. if you've never heard of necro make sure you do a youtube search for him. he is a true superstar in the indie wrestling world.

well now, cutting begins. we got a lot of footage and a little amount of time. but i think we have the film in the can.

i will keep you updated after i take a much needed sleep.

best...

Thanks for the inspirational post Darren. I'm so impatient to see your new moving picture! Your "fountain" is a fabulous inspiration to me. The more i see it,the more i love it.
Definitely in my top 5 movies!

It was great to see you directing in Dover, PA. We drove 2 hours to the event and it was worth every minute. Your speech tamed the wild crowd and allowed for an amazing scene.

My friend and I got the chance to talk to some of your crew and left his work (4th D movie)with one of them hoping it will get passed to you. It's often compared to your Pi and that's of course because your films are a source of inspiration. We just wanted to have the thought that you might get a chance to see it.

Looking forward to seeing The Wrestler...

Thanks for the Fountain for it has truly reawakened the artist that I pushed aside...

is clint mansell composing?
he doesn't really fit to kinda movie but maybe yes :)

Mike Niederquell said...

How do you know he doesn't fit? He's a pretty diverse composer.

safelight should be a tv mini series. the most important part of the soundtrack is the part when frank walks out of the hospital room and out of the hospital when emily dies.

Wow, I can't wait to see the final result... maybe in Venice this year?? It should be cool... you deserve a better treatment than the one you received (wrongly) for The Fountain!!!
I will be there for applaud ;)!!!
In the meanwhile, good luck with the editing... but first relax!! You surely deserve it... I know well...there is nothing better than when you finish the filming and you have all the material in your hands :D!!
Oh, and Happy Easter!!!

I say that in the future you get the crew of Stay (for the cinematography) and create an adaption of Danielewski's House of Leaves.

Just a thought.

I was looking for a link to your publicist. Instead, I found this blog. I am wondering how the story for THE WRESTLER came about; I am the grandson of former pro wrestler, Ken "small man" Lucas, and, to be honest, from what I've read about the film this is a a very close mimic of his life. As well, strangely enough, for years I've been describing my grandfather as looking just like Mickey Rourke. Any further dialogue would be much appreciated.
