News.com details a press conference for the film. Radha Mitchell couldn't swim, the cast started a rumour about a deadly shark to freak out Sam Worthington and Michael Vartan is scared on animals in general. How lovely.
Defamer writes up some stuff about the above article.
Urban Cinefile has an interview with McLean, which sort of articulates why the Weinsteins are a couple of idiots in search of a bright spark.
The Herald Sun has a piece about people magically not dying on set, how Michael Vartan wants to move to Australia, a nice interview with Vartan, Michell and McLean including a way-too-accurate indictment against the AFI voters. Seriously, how did this movie miss out on cinematography and score nominations? Fucked. Up.
Moviehole has an interview with McLean and Vartan in which McLean confesses to being a Star Wars: Episode I fan. Crikies!
The West Australian has an interview with Mitchell.
Mitchell signed on to the movie after being approached by director Greg McLean, who handed her a copy of his debut film, Wolf Creek, to watch.
"I thought he was a lovely, charming person and he was like, 'come and have a look at my movie Wolf Creek'," she says.
"I saw the film and I thought, this guy's got some serious issues!
Also, I have yet to read a negative review for the film. Most reviews seem to be between the 3 and 4 star range (Australian critics use a 5-star system generally). Here are two positive reviews from Urban Cinefile and Moviehole and a really terrible one at Inside Film. The latter has a point about one thing (the, er, body count, ahem), but I still like the movie.
By the way Vartonho.com says Rogue has a January 11 US release date. Not sure how accurate or how old that date is though.
