Director of Birdemic Says He's 'Mastered' 3-D for Sequel

birdemic120.jpgJames Nguyen, the possibly-delusional former Silicon Valley software salesman-turned-filmmaker behind the truly awful-and-not-even-in-a-good-way 2008 cult pic Birdemic (on DVD shelves this week), is hard at work on Birdemic 2: The Resurrection. That's the bad news. The good news: He's filming it in 3-D -- and the untrained Nguyen assures the Wall Street Journal that he's "completely mastered the art of 3-D cinematography." The self-described "Master of the Romantic Thriller" adds that the sequel might have something to do with the La Brea Tar Pits. We take it back. This is all bad news. [WSJ Speakeasy]


  • The Winchester says:

    Yay! Another crappy movie that hipsters will "ironically" embrace as a "cult classic" and ruin. Just like the Room.
    And Troll 2.
    And the first Birdemic.

  • Aren't cult films supposed to take a few years to mature, to win us over for all their crapitude?

  • The Winchester says:

    Not in this day and age, son. Thanks to MTV, diet cola, MySpace and the interwebs, we need everything faster than before, and we need it yesterday. In an age where blockbuster movies aren't even made unless they're based on pre-existing properties, we can't take our chances with just some random bizarre nonsense.
    No, no. We need our cult movies ready to go so that we can move onto and forget the next awesome/terrible thing so that the cycle can viciously renew.

    Anyone else get the feeling director Nguyen is going to basically do a CGI reworking of "Angry Birds" and convert it in post?
