You Got a Permit For Those Guns, Alden

Now here is a cast worth eyeballing -- Alden Ehrenreich is going to star opposite Julia Garner in the next horror movie from Barbarian director Zach Cregger! The movie is called Weapons and it was supposed to film last year but got delayed due to the strikes -- there's not much info on specifics except that it "promises interconnected stories surrounding the disappearance of high schoolers." I don't think Alden or Julia can play high schoolers anymore -- he's 34 and she's 30. Maaaaaybe Julia, although I think it'd be pushing it. Also in the cast is Josh Brolin, who is definitely too old to be playing a high school student. Anyway I was mixed on Barbarian -- here is my review -- there was stuff I liked about it (specifically its structure) but I think it botched its tone in the end in ways that really didn't work for me. But I think Cregger's got talent and hopefully this one will win me over. This cast is a good start!
