Remember the Sony Pictures hacking scandal a few weeks back? Hackers released a ton of confidential data belonging to Sony Pictures Entertainment, including personal information about Sony employees, their salaries and whatnot. It provided a glimpse of who was doing what to whom in Hollywood. It embarrassed countless show business talent and executive-types and provided a lot of fun reading for the rest of us.
With that in mind, what follows is a heavily edited but very real Facebook conversation between the lovely and talented Maria Williams Kennedy and educator/actor/singer/director/agitator Brad Sherwood. I’m releasing it in hopes of stirring up some trouble around here.
Maria Williams Kennedy: Hello! I am working on a collaboration with Emily Burkland at the Empire Arts Center about an Opera Project that will be turned into a film to be shown at the Empire. I have written the script and contacted singers and would like to ask you if you would be interested in performing….. Please let me know if you are interested in this fun Fundraiser for the Empire. I have attached the scrip. Thank you!
Brad Sherwood: What is the timeline of events around this work?
Maria Williams Kennedy: We would be filming in the Summer and a release date would be September.
Brad Sherwood: Sounds like fun … if it fits in the calendar of life … ‘I’m in”
Maria Williams Kennedy: Yay!
Brad Sherwood: But only if I can be killed by Terry Dullum!!!
Maria Williams Kennedy: LOL that could be arranged!
Terry Dullum: I’d love to kill Brad. I’m assuming this is a nonsinging role on my part?
Maria Williams Kennedy: Yes, no singing. We’d love to have you kill Brad, Terry!
Terry Dullum: I have a list of some others I’d like to kill … but we can discuss that later.
“Zombie Empire” is a real project. Without giving away too much, let’s just say the script revolves around zombies, Marilyn Hagerty and world domination. I’ll be playing myself, as best I can. Watch for it.
