Director Kyle Newman talks STAR WARS, TOYS and FANBOYS – Exclusive Video

     February 6, 2009


Written by Steve ‘Frosty’ Weintraub




As most of you know, opening tomorrow is director Kyle Newman’s “Star Wars” inspired movie “Fanboys”.



While I could’ve interviewed Kyle at the recent Los Angeles press junket for his movie, since Kyle and I are friends, I didn’t think one of those formal interviews was the best idea. Instead, I pitched Kyle on the idea of him and I having a conversation about “Star Wars”, “Fanboys”, toys, and showing off what makes him a geek like all of us. Thankfully, Kyle thought it was a great idea and just a few days ago I ventured over to his house (with Erico from Omelete) to film what you’re about to watch.



If you ever wanted to know what Kyle’s office looked like and what collectibles he keeps around, you’ll dig this. Also, we talked about everything from collecting toys to what will be on the “Fanboys” DVD. Since the interview is pretty long, you can see what we talked about above each part.



And here are a few other “Fanboys” links you might want to check out:
