Cinemash re-creates major films
Stars on board for Internet shortsWill Arnett, Zooey Deschanel, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Milo Ventimiglia, Channing Tatum are some of the stars that have signed up for Mean Magazine's Cinemash, which re-creates scenes from prominent movies in short online films.
The series kicks off Tuesday with Zooey Deschanel and Joseph Gordon-Levitt, who star together in Fox Searchlight's "500 Days of Summer," interpreting "Sid and Nancy." The "Sid and Nancy" cinemash dovetails with "Summer" as the two have a scene in which they talk about the 1986 film. "Summer" director Marc Webb directed the short.
Among the highlights: Tatum stars in a "Dirty Dancing" parody, Ventimiglia does "Oldboy," and Arnett channels "Carrie."
The shorts will be available exclusively for download on Microsoft's Zune, and will stream on MSN, released weekly throughout the summer, beginning on Tuesday, July 7.
