Renee's New Movie "Moby Dick" Update
In io9's interview with Renee, she revealed a little more about her new movie with Trey Stokes based on the classic story "Moby Dick". Renee is in the role of Ishmael. For those not familiar with the story:
Ishmael is the narrator (and arguably the protagonist) of the 1851 novel Moby-Dick by U.S. author Herman Melville. It is through his eyes and experience that the reader experiences the story of the ship Pequod, and the fight between Captain Ahab and the white whale. He is a central character in the action in the early part of the novel, essentially fulfilling all the requirements of being a conventional protagonist. After the Pequod leaves Nantucket, he increasingly recedes into the background as a commentator, with his voice approaching that of an omniscient narrator at times, able to see into all parts of the ship and into the private motivations of other characters.
And O'Connor added that she and Stokes are also working together on a full-length movie for The Asylum, makers of Transmorphers, Titanic II, Princess Of Mars and Mega Python Vs. Gatoroid. It's a reimagining of Moby Dick, in which they fight a "mega whale." O'Connor isn't sure if this whale is mutated, or just extremely giant by whale standards. Barry Bostwick (Brad from Rocky Horror Picture Show) plays Captain Ahab, and O'Connor plays Ishmael. "At the end, I'm rowing in the coffin. It's fun, we're having fun."
