John Dies at the End, a horror comedy from writer/director Don Coscarelli (The Beastmaster, Phantasm, Bubba Ho-Tep), follows John (Rob Mayes) and David (Chase Williamson), college drop-outs who can barely hold out jobs, but who soon find themselves on a journey to save humanity from an otherworldly invasion.  The film also stars Paul Giamatti, Clancy Brown, Glynn Turman and Doug Jones.  For more on the film,watch the red band trailer.

At the film’s press day, actor Paul Giamatti, who’s also an executive producer on the movie, talked about what drew him to John Dies at the End, his most memorable experience of the shoot, working with such new actors, how he sees the industry now, and that he doesn’t think a film like Sideways would even get made today.  He also talked about his upcoming role as Nikita Khrushchev for the HBO movie K Blows Top, the status of Bubba Nosferatu, and his role in Steve McQueen’s next film, Twelve Years A Slave.  Check out what he had to say after the jump.

Not too long ago, Paul Giamatti ventured into the history of the United States in the Emmy-nominated HBO miniseries John Adams. Now Variety reports he’ll go back into the past with HBO yet again: the actor is attached to play Nikita Khrushchev in a film chronicling the Soviet Union leader’s 13-day American sojourn in September 1959, a time when Cold War tensions between the world superpowers were running high. Tom Hanks’ Playtone is collaborating with HBO to produce the project, still in the early stages of development; Paul Bernbaum (Next, Hollywoodland) will write the script. Though it sounds like a poignant dive into history, details after the jump illustrate why this may be a little less heavy than something like John Adams.
