Kickstart This Project: ‘Diani & Devine Meet The Apocalypse’

Diani and Devine

The apocalypse has been a ripe source for comedy in recent years, with three features in 2013 exploring the topic, in the form of Rapture-palooza, This Is The End, and The World’s End. A somewhat less explored genre for comedic tellings are road trip movies, and a mix of the two yields a very limited number of offerings, let alone comedic offerings. Comedy duo Gabriel Diani and Etta Devine are looking to add to that number with their latest offering. The group, who was behind the recent tongue-in-cheek campaign to replace a slur  against black people in The Adventures of Huckleberry Finn with the word “robot”, is no stranger to filmmaking, with the webseries Mary Olson and their debut feature The Selling already under their belt. In addition, they have managed to assemble an impressive cast, including Barry Bostwick from The Rocky Horror Picture Show and the tv series Spin City, Janet Varney from the tv series The Legend of Korra, the podcast The JV Club, and the webseries Burning Love, and Cole Stratton from the Pop My Culture podcast. The premise, as well as the people involved, makes this an intriguing project, and hopefully one that comes to fruition. For more details and/or to donate, you can see their Kickstarter page here, as well as the video below.



About Deepayan Sengupta

There was once a time when I thought Scarface was the best movie ever made, and Home Improvement was appointment television for me. While I still have a soft spot for both, those days of naivete are long behind me, as I’ve subsequently managed to broaden my horizons. Ambition is the most important part of a movie for me; if it tries to do something unique, tell a well-worn story in a different way, or take on large themes in a honest manner, I can forgive many flaws. If there’s one movie fact I’ve learnt after all these years, it’s that Employee of The Month is to Office Space what fast food is to fresh fruit.
