Photos from the set of PLAN 9

James / April 6th, 2011

I’m in Nilbog,VA of all places. That’s me second to left, with some of the crew from Plan 9. (They’re prop signs.)

There I am, in police officer uniform, hoping to gun down some zombies.


It’s one of those classic minor cop roles. In fact, I don’t even have a name. Look at my nametag.

I guess my full name is Officer Cop Policeman.

Here I am at a sewage plant. Yuck!

Reminds me of Axis Chemicals. Don’t fall in!

A real science lab, where scientists do science.

I thought this kind of place only existed in 1950’s sci-fi movies.

Of course this is the remake of the CLASSIC Plan 9 from Outer Space. I hope we can make Ed Wood proud. Or perhaps make him turn in his cardboard grave. Here’s the teaser/trailer again.

    Kelton the cop with a cheesy goatee

  • April 6, 2011 at 3:02 pm

    Yep. It should go up tonight.

  • April 6, 2011 at 3:05 pm

    @Mr. Arkadin
    I actually happen to be the other cop, not Kelton, but the unnamed officer originally played by Conrad Brooks. Conrad himself is scheduled to appear in the film as a superior officer.

    Thanks James for all the awesomeness I wasnt liking some of the videos mostly beginning mid 2010 but since Star Wars all the shit is tight again! You have a nice NEW ERA infront of you, if you need supporting cast from Spain who makes the best smoke rings in tha world just let me know!

    Officer Cop Policeman…. lmao 😀

    I’m so excited about the movie…

  • April 6, 2011 at 3:33 pm

    Could that be a Volvo 740 in the background of the two shots with you and a gun

  • April 6, 2011 at 3:35 pm

    Looks awesome James! I can’t wait to see it! You as a cop is scary as hell! 😉

    I hope this can help you on your movie. As you say, in your newest hilarious Dr. Jekyll & Mr. Hyde-video, it must be shown!

    Do you know when Plan 9 is scheduled to be done?

    Sorry for my English, I’m from Sweden and I try to improve it.

    I can’t wait to see this movie! But before I do I’ll have to see the original.

    Oh man it’s Nilbog. Tried any of the cuisine there?

  • sanguintine

    April 6, 2011 at 4:48 pm

    wow James, you’re looking pretty good as a cop!

  • M3n747

    April 6, 2011 at 4:59 pm

    It wasn’t until I saw those photos that I realised just how awesome this is. Plan 9 with the Nerd in it – it’s gonna be awesome!

    If Ed Wood turns around in his grave, it’s probably because he’s having a boner.

    Policeman! Loving it! Loving It!

    RememberTomorrow stop saying your from sweden!

  • scback

    April 6, 2011 at 5:22 pm

    LOL that name-tag is awesome. Maybe they’ll let you keep it after the production?

    Those shots of the lab look like The Man They Could not Hang!

  • April 6, 2011 at 5:24 pm

    @ James, about the next AVGN video.

    Sweet! Today’s my birthday, and a new AVGN will make it a little extra special.

  • April 6, 2011 at 5:24 pm

    They’re hoping on finishing shooting by the end of the month and then it goes into post-production. From there, nobody knows yet, but I’m sure it’ll take a while by the time it’s out on DVD.

  • garyl8612

    April 6, 2011 at 5:31 pm

    @James So its going straight to DVD?

  • HeavyMetalFan420

    April 6, 2011 at 5:47 pm

    James, about how much do you think the budget was for this movie, or since its not finished, how much do you think the movie’s budget will be when its finished? and is there a lot of use of C-G? im just wondering because i have been working on a flick that is a prequal to Gremlins, for about a year now, and i have been wondering how much of it, (C-G) to use because you my hero and i know that you know what you are talking about.

  • Jimbo

    April 6, 2011 at 6:10 pm

    Officer Cop Policeman. That’s priceless. Can’t wait.

    BTW be careful not to get eaten by Goblins. 🙂

  • TomM

    April 6, 2011 at 6:16 pm

    James looks pretty natural in a police uniform; I don’t know why. Really am excited about the movie and can’t wait to see it.

  • BR2k10

    April 6, 2011 at 6:19 pm

    James, do you know if they are going to make a video game based on the movie? If so would you voice your own character?

  • AtlasNR

    April 6, 2011 at 6:27 pm

    So is this going to be a straight to DVD movie? I assume it will be since I haven’t heard too much about it other than on here and the details on the website.

  • April 6, 2011 at 6:30 pm

    How did you get the Role? and when will it be coming out?

  • St_Cerberus_Engel

    April 6, 2011 at 6:46 pm

    Man, this looks really good. After seeing footage from Ed Wood’s version, this looks…well, professional. Hah. James looks really convincing in costume. I so want to see this.

  • DaXiang

    WAIT WAIT WAIT WAIT! Does VA REALLY have a Nilbog?? I’ve lived in VA for my whole life and…I’ve never heard of such a place! ….Do goblins live there?? Now I’m curious….

    On another note, I’m absolutely in love with your name tag! It’s quite epic!

  • April 6, 2011 at 11:50 pm

    This looks better then I expected. Hope you get to take down some zombies.

  • Filmmassacre

    April 7, 2011 at 1:21 am

    He’s the one who should save the day xD

  • April 7, 2011 at 4:47 am

    Nilbog!? It’s ‘Goblin’ spelled BACKWARDS!


  • April 7, 2011 at 7:45 am

    Do you realize what this could mean? It could lead to actual advances in the field of science!

  • Kiminara

    April 7, 2011 at 7:49 am

  • GreyFox

    Officer Cop Policeman has been very important to science. He is responsible for actual advances in the field of science!

  • Vyral

    April 7, 2011 at 4:29 pm

    James, this looks awesome. I thought the camp factor was going to be through the roof, but I love the idea of turning the original concept into an actually scary film.

    Nice “Lost Skeleton” reference in the lab photos, btw!

  • aztoya06

    I must say that James looks handsome in a uniform. 🙂 But then again, I’m a heterosexual woman, so it’s natural I would think a man looks good in one. 😉

  • doped

    April 8, 2011 at 6:02 am

    okay, i would have thought as Vyral said it would be over the top goofy acting, but that intro scene with the old man really did somehow convince me. I like when completely non celebrities do a good acting job, and i actually believe you(james) is quite a good acter(getting the right lines to work with ofc). oh, and i think this is my first comment on this page, although i’ve been following avgn since 2007 i believe, but never really had anything to add, as it was all awesome 🙂

  • TheEnigmaticRonin

    April 8, 2011 at 6:31 am

    That looks great James!, looking forward to watch you in more movies.
    Def! gonna watch this.
