Beowulf Movie PodcastIn multiple artist media like movies and comic books its always been my byword that you should “follow the talent and not the team.” Nobody directs better TV movies than Steven Schachter, actors like Kristen Bell, William H. Macy and Steve Buscemi know how to pick good scripts, and writers like Garth Ennis and Donald Westlake are worth following – wherever they go. That said, good visuals don’t hurt good movies…

Visuals aside, it is the talent behind the script that makes a movie truly memorable. That’s why I’m excited to see that the new animated version of Beowulf is coming to movie theatres November 16th (that’s a still from the trailer above). The script for Beowulf is by Roger Avary (Reservoir Dogs, True Romance, Pulp Fiction) and Neil Gaiman (Neverwhere, American Gods, The Sandman). So whats’ the audio connection? Well, there’s a podcast for the movie including an interview with Gaiman, and Crispin Glover (who plays Grendel) and more folks behind the project:

  1. Beowulf is an amazingly great epic poem! Great choice with the film coming up (hopefully this film won’t be a disappointment). I’ll have to listen to the LibriVox version before I see the film.

    ScottD, cool, I’ve been looking for a good site with spoken Old English and the Anglo-Saxon Aloud site has most of the great short poems in MP3. Thank you.
