HOLLYWOOD – Access Hollywood and Tic-Tac salesman Billy Bush is to star in the new Michael Haneke film Swamp Thing Begins.
Swamp Thing Begins is the new take on the Len Wein and Berni Wrightson DC Comic series which has also spawned movies and TV shows as well as a graphic novel from Alan Moore. The new film is to be directed by Austrian auteur Michael Haneke whose second English language film this will be. The inclusion of Billy Bush, officially the twentieth most intelligent Bush in the Bush family, has caused some controversy.
Speaking EXCLUSIVELY with the Studio Exec, Michael Haneke described the casting process of his new film:
It really was a budgetry concern. This is going to be as cheap as I can make it. Firstly, the idea was Billy had just been fired so we knew he was looking for work. And, secondly, when we contacted him he said he could bring his own slime, which was a bonus.
Swamp Thing Begins will be released in 2018.
