The Nelms Brothers on ‘Fatman,’ Casting Mel Gibson, and Sequel Plans?

December 10, 2020

Episode Notes

Sonny talks this week to Ian and Eshom Nelms, the fraternal directorial team behind ‘Fatman,’ about the circuitous path to making that film, the vagaries of indie economics and budgeting, the clash between critics and audiences on the film, and the possibility of a sequel on the horizon after its surprisingly strong VOD performance. There’s some spoiler-y conversation in the last 10 minutes or so of the show, so you should rent the movie before listening if that sort of thing bothers you!
