The Mummer vs. Slingers "Cherry Heart"

For those of you that were impressed, like me, by the score for the Slingers sizzle, this is your lucky day.  The genius behind the music is a band called The Mummers, and they've done a full length video of the song used in the teaser video. Directed by the sizzle director, Steve Barron, it incorporates much of the original footage with newly shot scenes with the band.  Enjoy!

Slingers Still on track

Slingers Still on track

Sizemore has given us something of an update on Slingers in his blog:

"First an update. Everything is going great. Let me break that down and get into the details… oh… I can’t.

The problem (and I admit it’s a great problem to have) is that the closer Slingers gets to being made a lot of things have to slide into position. Every time one of these boxes gets ticked or a lever gets pulled the right way then our instinct is to jump on Twitter and spill. But because so many things are dependent on so many other things we can’t do that. And damn, it’s frustrating."

So no solid news, other than it is still on track to get made.  That's a good thing, though, so we'll keep our fingers crossed and bring you any more news as we soon as we get it!

Slingers Update

Slingers Update

Look for a nice, big, tasty article about Slingers in the April issue of SFX Magazine.  You can see a scan of it on show creator Sizemore's blog.  The article states: 

"Right now we're looking at a shortlist of showrunners and we continue to talk to one network in particular that wants to make Slingers," he continues.  "We're in the process of putting all that together and we hope to starts shooting this year.  The great thing is that it is in very good shape and very close to finding a home."

Over on production company Sleepydog's blog, there was a blog entry with this fantastic quote about Tom's character Frank:

"Slingers was built around it characters first and foremost. If you like them then you’ll follow them anywhere. Luckily the setting and the technology that forms the backdrop makes for some interesting situations, but as Toby is fond of saying, if you follow Frank into a bar for a quiet drink something is going to happen. He’s just that kind of guy."

And finally, for those fans who frequent LiveJournal or other forums and enjoy a nicely made icon, lookie here for some made by the talented Deepfishy.
