MORE PLAN 9 PHOTOS – zombie van attack

James / April 8th, 2011

Here’s some more photos from the set of Plan 9.

This shot was a bit tricky. While driving, I had to hit two marks. 1) when to fire the blanks 2) when to hit the breaks, stopping the van at the right spot, before I went off frame or out of focus. I’m not left handed either. Either way, it was badass!

For these zombie attacks, I was sitting in the BACK of the van. Most of us hadn’t even seen the zombie actors until they showed up banging on the glass. It was scary, in a fun kind of way. This should be a Halloween attraction. Take the guests in a van, through a zombie apocalypse.

    seing james with a gun is exactly what he wrote

    Pretty good stuff. My wife and I watch the MST3K version of plan 9 all the time. In this role do you receive an awesome death? or a silly death like Mace Windu?

    Having seen episodes of Spade, one thing’s for sure – James is going to kick some ass!

    Understandable why they wouldn’t show you the zombies ahead of time: to get an even better surprise reaction on camera.

    Cool shots, thanks for sharing! I think you need a good Duke Nukem quote for that picture of you with the gun:

    “Your face, your ass, what’s the difference?”. 😉

    I can’t help but chuckle a little while looking at your epic frown in the second picture. By the way, you know you’re listed fifth on the cast list on the plan 9 site? It looks a little odd since your character doesn’t even have a name.

    Make sure you attempt them to persuade them to release the DVDs without region coding and unnecessary packaging. Gotta stop the bullshit for sure.

  • April 8, 2011 at 4:11 pm

    That’s a pretty good idea for a halloween attraction! Excellent pictures, looking forward to this film!

    AWESOME. love the “AVGN scowl” with the hand cannon!! Fuckin’ sweet picture.

  • April 8, 2011 at 5:29 pm

    nice handcannon!

    You gotta love the AVGN-esque face you did there.

    Does the production crew just let you take pics knowing you’re posting them on your website??

    Hey, James
    thanks for sharing this experience with us! It’s really interesting and the way you present it make me feel you really want to share it with us 🙂 Glad to see you are getting involved more and more into things that you want to want to: webseries, movies, etc…

    Just wondering: who is taking these pictures? Is Mike with you? Finally, how do you manage to get involved in the shooting of this remake (perhaps I missed out some posts…)
    Also, I realized that you have beard but not for AVGN episodes. Is there any reasons why you shave for AVGN ?

    It’s kinda funny: more and more, I feel AVGN is getting away from you as you wish to move on other personal projects. I know you would like to make the AVGN movie true, but somehow, and according to your latest posts, the Nerd will be less important than the past years.
    In a way, I can understand you would like to change, it’s been more than 5 years!

    Wait for more of your work, keep on going. Following you in your projects is really interesting and, in some ways, exciting!

    Cheers from France!


    ps: yeah, you do look like cool in Sheriff suite, you should have been selected for Walking Dead 🙂 “Yeah, some serious motherfuckers to shoot, ass!”
    PPS: playing in the remake of the “worst movie of all time” is kind of ironic, I feel: as mrscruff said, Make Ed proud!

    Hehe, nice, with that expression you can almost make a new Eastwood. 😉

  • April 9, 2011 at 3:58 pm

    Thanks for posting these pictures of the production James! It’s really fun to see how things are coming along. I’m excited to see the movie!

    Nice photos, funny face expression you got there. (In a good way)

  • April 10, 2011 at 12:08 am

    I can tell already that this movie will be awesome, and I haven’t even seen the original.

    If this is coming out to theatres, I have to go see it.

    Nice expression, definitely badass holding a gun looking like that. The look you have on your face in the back of the van is awesome, very funny too, in a “Oh shit! Zombies!” way.

    You remind me of Rick Grimes from the walking dead =)

  • April 14, 2011 at 8:09 pm

    James, I must say, you look incredibly sexy in that uniform. I can’t wait to see this. 😉

  • April 14, 2011 at 9:18 pm

    In that second photo, it looks like you’re doing your “Angry Nerd Frown”!

  • April 17, 2011 at 5:13 am

    I know what you’re thinking. “Did he fire six shots or only five?” Well, to tell you the truth, in all this excitement I kind of lost track myself. But being as this is a .44 Magnum, the most powerful handgun in the world, and would blow your head clean off, you’ve got to ask yourself one question: Do I feel lucky? Well, do ya, nerd?

    James, is your character married? If not you may want to lose your ring during filming. Just noticed that little detail.
