We featured The Sidekick as one of the five panels that should not be missed at this year’s Comic-Con, but were we right? The Sidekick follows super hero sidekick Max McCabe on a journey of self discovery after his disastrous final mission with Captain Wonder (played by a wonderfully dry Ron Livingston). Created as a way to cope with turning forty, actor-writer Rob Benedict successfully assembled a team of super-talented friends to help out with the film including Martin Starr, Lizzy Caplan, Richard Speight Jr., Jordan Peele, Jason Ritter, and Josh Meyers.
As reported by Deadline.com, the director of your favorite Mission Impossible movie, possibly favorite Star Trek movie and least favorite Amblin Entertainment movie is set to helm a brand new, Disney owned Star Wars film. I’m assuming that the majority of nerds with pitchforks are deciding whether they love this or hate it. I think the guy is a brilliant producer and slightly less brilliant director, but it has the possibility of being a good movie. It can’t be much worse than the prequels.
