Jon Ronson interview: Okja, books, The Butterly Effect, Jason Statham

Simon Brew Jun 30, 2017

Jon Ronson talks to us about writing Okja, writing films, his upcoming projects and Jason Statham...

This is the second time that Den Of Geek has had the pleasure of interviewing author, screenwriter and broadcaster Jon Ronson. The occasion this time was the release of the film Okja, that he’s co-written. The first time? Well, that seemed like a good place to start this interview…

I did always wonder how I’d start a conversation with you, given that the last time you and our website crossed, it nearly brought down Den Of Geek altogether…!

You know what, I’ve got a memory of this. But my memory’s so shit, you’re going to have to remind me!

You touched on it in the early passages of The Psychopath Test. We interviewed you ahead of the release of the film The Men Who Stare At Goats,

‘War Machine’ Review (Netflix Original)

  • Nerdly
Stars: Brad Pitt, Scoot McNairy, Tilda Swinton, Ben Kingsley, Anthony Hayes, Keith Stanfield, Anthony Michael Hall, Topher Grace, Meg Tilly | Written and Directed by David Michôd

The year is 2010. General Glen McMahon (Brad Pitt) is tasked by a committee of civilian leaders with fixing the mess in Afghanistan. What this actually entails is open to debate. Does it mean winning the hearts and minds of the local populous? Or winning the war against the Taliban? McMahon reckons they’re the same thing.

He and his ego-stroking team take a tour of the country, to see the meagre and underfunded efforts being made by the allies to make good on their promise of roads, schools, democracy, and all that good stuff. McMahon finds a desert of broken dreams.

He requests forty thousand extra troops, so that he might exorcise Helmand Province of its elusive evil. In return he gets minimal reinforcements,

The Mind’s Eye Review

While Almost Human marked a memorable feature debut for up-and-comer Joe Begos, The Mind’s Eye represents an unfortunate step backwards. The film feels more like a first-time effort built on unsteady ground, stumbling over a minefield of miscues that rarely pull together the tight, fluid terrors of Almost Human. This psychokinetic Scanners homage falls into a repetition of cut-rate effects and low-budget confidence, constantly failing to marry either aspect with Begos’ passionate respect for a genre he clearly adores and respects. It all sounds great on paper, like an aggressive cut of The Men Who Stare At Goats, but actors scrunching their faces while “emitting brainwave attacks” can only entertain for so long…

Indie workhorse Graham Skipper stars as Zack Connors, a gifted individual being held by antagonist Dr. Michael Slovak (John Speredakos). The imprisonment is not mutually beneficial, as it turns out that Dr. Sloak is keeping a

George Clooney: His best performances to date

When it comes to movie stars, few actors in Hollywood better encapsulate what you want out of a veteran A-lister than George Clooney. Not only is he an accomplished actor with an Academy Award on his mantle, he’s a highly regarded writer and director, with an Oscar for producing under his belt as well. He’s a jack of all trades, and with a new star vehicle out on Friday in Money Monster (which I actually see tomorrow), I thought it was high time to go over his best performances to date. There’s no shortage of quality on Clooney’s permanent record, so finding his top works so far won’t be hard, on top of being a pleasure. He’s had a great career that’s only about at the midway point, so there’s not only tons to look at, but plenty more to come as well!

Walking Dead Stalwart Steven Yeun Joins Bong Joon-Ho’s Okja As Production Gets Underway

Buoyed by the cult success of dystopian actioner Snowpiercer, South Korean filmmaker Bong Joon-Ho has been gradually assembling a starry lineup for his next feature, Okja.

After barrelling around an icy wasteland as the monstrous Deputy-Minister Mason, Tilda Swinton will reunite with Joon-Ho for the sci-fi flick, rubbing shoulders with Jake Gyllenhaal as a zoologist, Paul Dano, The 100‘s Devon Bostick, Lily Collins, Byun Heebong, Shirley Henderson and, now, The Walking Dead stalwart Steven Yeun.

Word of Yeun’s casting comes just as Okja officially slinks into production. Hoping to spotlight “the beauty that can exist between man and animal, and also the horror between them,” Joon-Ho’s intriguing creature feature will set up shop across Canada, the States and in the director’s home of South Korea.

Penned by Jon Ronson (Frank, The Men Who Stare At Goats), expect the filmmaker’s piece to revolve around Mija – played
