A Dog’s Chat

David Hewlett has announced that he will be attempting a simul-chat for his movie A Dog’s Breakfast on Friday, August 3rd. (ADB is the film starring and made by many Stargate cast and crew.)

Fans who have downloaded the film will all press play at the same time and the chatting will ensue, with fans having the chance to ask questions as they go along.

ADB is AOK, now

Big surprise. Amazon jumped the gun on premiering David Hewlett‘s movie A Dog’s Breakfast. (I know. You’re shocked!) However, all has been straightened out.

You can continue to pre-order the DVD from Amazon (although you can now do so officially)
And if you just can’t wait, you can download it from Amazon Unbox or iTunes.

And good news for non-US audiences. The international release will be the first quarter of 2008.

I’ve been lucky enough to see this film. You will be giggling for days. (And if you’re not a Gate Geek, don’t run away. This has nothing to do with Stargate, except for the cast and crew. And there’s a great sci-fi spoof in it that every genre fan can appreciate.)

A Dog’s DVD

A Dog’s Breakfast is the much buzzed-about “what I did on my winter hiatus” film from Stargate Atlantis actor David Hewlett.

It was filmed using cast, crew and even sets from the Stargate franchise and has been earning additional showings and awards at many film festivals over the past year.

MGM has finally announced a September 18th release date for the DVD.

I went ahead and bought the download and found it beyond funny. If you enjoy British comedies, you’ll enjoy this one.

New Sci-Fi Comedy by David Hewlett

Yes. I’ve been a bit heavy on the David Hewlett news, lately. But he’s a busy guy!

In his upcoming movie A Dog’s Breakfast, Hewlett included a sub-plot about a fictional (and horrendously over-acted) sci-fi soap opera called Starcrossed. The clip on YouTube got such a reaction, that he has now been asked to develop a comedy for Sci-Fi Channel based on the behind-the-scenes antics of a sci-fi show.

We’ll let you know where to send the get well cards after he collapses from exhaustion.

Happiness for Stargate Fans?

There has been much turmoil and angst, lately, amongst the Stargate fans with the news of SG-1’s cancellation and casting changes for Atlantis.

But David Hewlett has hinted in an e-mail interview about his upcoming film A Dog’s Breakfast that there could be joy around the corner:

“There’s also a TV project that the Stargate fans are going to get a huge kick out of. Look for that to be announced any day now!”

Could there be joy in the Pegasus Galaxy?
