VIDEO: True Blood’s Ryan Kwanten is One Busy Movie Star!
August 14, 2013 by Rachel Tsoumbakos
Kwanten Stars in a Short Film as Well as a Feature Film:
Many fans have been concerned that the life of Ryan Kwanten’s character, Jason Stackhouse, may be at risk this week in HBO’s True Blood Season 6, after he was left alone in a room full of female vampires who hadn’t seen real human blood in weeks. But, even if Jason Stackhouse doesn’t survive Season 6, at least we won’t miss seeing the Aussie star on the big screen!
Firstly, you can enjoy Kwanten in a short film that pays homage to Venom from Marvel Comics. This film was recently premiered by director Joe Lynch (who also directed another Kwanten movie, Knights of Badassdom) at Comic-Con. It is the second instalment in producer Adi Shankar’s “Bootleg Universe”. The movie is called Truth in Journalism and follows Kwanten’s character, Eddie Brock, documentary-style, as he is followed by a French film crew in the 1980’s.
You can view this short film (it goes for a mere 17 mins.) in it’s entirety below:
The second movie Ryan Kwanten has on offer is a feature length movie and goes by the name The Right Kind of Wrong. This movie is directed by Jeremiah Chechik (of Bennie and Joon fame). It stars Catherine O’Hara and Sara Canning (The Vampire Diaries) alongside True Blood’s Kwanten. The Right Kind of Wrong follows the story of Leo (Ryan Kwanten) who finds the woman of his dreams – only problem is, he meets her on her wedding day! Rather than woo her, he tries to convince the love of his life to marry her fiancé rather than be with him.
The Right Kind of Wrong will premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival this year, but until then, you can enjoy the movie preview below:
