hurricane bianca del rio

What has Bianca Del Rio been up to since being crowned America’s Next Drag Superstar? Besides touring the globe with the rest of her Drag Race counterparts, she and her cute-as-hell bestie Matt Kugelman are partnering up on a film entitled Hurricane Bianca. The sure-to-be-camp-classic tells the story of a queer man who takes revenge on a small town in the South after being fired for being gay. His revenge? Returning as Bianca, a bitchy queen, who, true to form, is ready to read that town to filth.

The film is in crowd-funding stage as we speak. We caught up with Del Rio and Kugelman recently for more details on the project. We also shot Bianca a series of rapid-fire questions, where she reveals all kinds of personal anecdotes, including her thoughts on Voyeur.

Is QVC Keeping Blockbuster Films Out of PA?

TribLive reports that Harrisburg lawmakers are seeking to limit the amount of state TV production credits that West Chester-based QVC can claim in a year — the home-shopping network, they say, is consuming a good chunk of the limited funding that could draw other TV and film productions to the state.

MOVIE-O-METER: Kevin Hart’s Think Like a Man Too is Insufferable + Our Take On Other New Releases

Capsule reviews of the weekend’s new movie releases. Should you see it, wait for DVD, or skit it altogether? We give you the goods (and oh-so-terribles) below.

The Rover: Good early critical buzz from the Sydney Film Festival, where this Aussie production from the talented David Michôd made its debut, has propelled it onto a lot of critic’s must-see lists. The story concerns yet another dystopian future, after a worldwide economic collapse, and a badass former soldier (Guy Pearce) who is forced to track down his stolen car—the poor wretch’s lone possession—with the help of an unwitting innocent (Robert Pattinson). Something about the harsh, largely barren Outback lends itself to these kinds of hard-bitten, rough-edged tales. Rotten Tomatoes Score: 68%

Bradley Cooper to Star in Wet Hot American Summer Prequel?

wet hot american summer prequel bradley cooper

Last night on Late Night With Seth Meyers, director David Wain confirmed the long-running rumor that there will be a prequel to his 2001 satire Wet Hot American Summer — and if all goes well it will star his original cast. From MTV:

David Wain, who directed the 2001 cult hit — starring the likes of Paul Rudd, Amy Poehler and Bradley Cooper — was a guest on Late Night With Seth Meyers last night (June 17), and he casually confirmed the prequel that was rumored in late May.

The very best part? Wain plans on the main cast returning. Think about that: 2014 minus 2001 equals … nearly a decade and a half. And this is a prequel. And they’re playing the same characters. Even Wain gets how hilarious this is.

“Now we’re gonna do a prequel where it’s the same actors who were 30 playing 16-year-olds then, and now they’re gonna be in their mid-40s also still playing 16 and it takes place before the events of the movie,” he said.

It should also be noted that these actors will come with a much heftier price tag these days. Either way, we can’t wait. Check out Wain’s interview below.
