PUBLIC VERSION. Filmmaker Mike P Nelson (WRONG TURN 2021, THE DOMESTICS) joins Adam, Joe, and Arwen to discuss his journey at the helm of the re-imagined WRONG TURN (out now)! From Mike’s initial reaction to franchise creator Alan McElroy’s screenplay and its completely re-envisioned take on the original concept… to carrying out post-production during the COVID-19 pandemic… to committing to the bold choice of making a WRONG TURN movie that purposely avoids many of the signature elements that fans have come to expect from the franchise… this candid conversation offers some fascinating insight into what it’s like navigating a climate where audiences largely gravitate towards remakes, sequels, and recognizable titles over original offerings… all while claiming they want “something new.” In the second half of the episode the boys get real about the social commentary of “backwoods villains,” Mike offers some truly compelling advice to those pursuing a career in the arts, and Dr. Arwen provides “Hollywood Therapy” to an artist feeling beaten down by bad luck. Stop missing out on the best parts of each week’s conversation!
