Exclusive Interview with Deadpool Co-Creator Fabian Nicieza

Ever since his first appearance in The New Mutants #98 in February of 1991, Deadpool has enjoyed a cult following few other comic book characters can boast. Best known for his talkative nature and fourth wall breaks, Deadpool remained in relative mainstream obscurity until Ryan Reynolds single-handedly championed convincing 20th Century Fox to green light the 2016 box office dark horse. Yet, if you’d gone to any comic book convention over the last decade and witnessed the... Read More


Exclusive Interview with Kevin Altieri, Batman: The Animated Series Director

For any comic book fan growing up in the 90s, there was one definitive shared after-school ritual: Watching Batman: The Animated Series on Fox. The Warner Bros. Animation cartoon series ran from 1992 to 1995, and yet in just those three years it redefined the capped crusader in more ways than we could list here and introduced an entire new generation to the greater DC Comics universe. Borrowing from the aesthetic style and tone of the two Tim Burton Batman films, Batman: The Animated Series... Read More

The Man, the Myth, the Legend: An Interview With GNG Lead Actor Roland Keller

 To be honest, I had to part ways with quite a few actors since creating Ghetto Nerd Girl. It was always amicable. Like any production, people need to move on whether because of a new project or places their life’s taking them. Totally understandable, but on the flip side, I can proudly say that Roland Keller has been with us since day one.  I hope he’s not going anywhere anytime soon. Rowland’s one of the most animated and energetic actors I’ve ever worked with,... Read More

An Interview with Zach Seekins AKA Seth from Ghetto Nerd Girl

Since creating and working on Ghetto Nerd Girl, I’ve had the pleasure of not only working with several great actors, but also becoming great friends with them in the process; now, I can’t picture my life without them. That’s when the idea came to me that if I got to know and love my cast members so quickly, everyone else would too, if given the opportunity. I’m very lucky to work with these talented people on the show because they don’t make my job on set feel... Read More


Stephen King’s It Film Adaptations Get a New Director and Pennywise

As many of you may already know, Stephen King’s classic horror novel It is being remade into two separate R-rated films, the first told from the children’s perspective and the second from them as adults. Producer Roy Lee told Nerdist: “It is very close to the source material in one way but very different if you look at it as a literary piece of work… We’re taking it and making the movie from the point of view of the kids, and then making another movie from the point of...

Actor Steve Coulter Chats About The Conjuring 2 and The Birth of a Nation

Last year I had the distinct pleasure of talking with Steve Coulter, a stage and screen actor who’s made horror genre inroads over the last couple of years in a big  way, starting in 2013 when he played Father Gordon in James Wan’s The Conjuring. Since then, Steve’s gone on to act in Insidious 2 & 3, AMC’s The Walking Dead, and is reprising his role as the Warren’s priest-connection in The Conjuring 2, which will be in theaters June 10th. Steve took some... Read More


Nerdy by Nature Ghetto by Design – Interview with Ghetto Nerd Girl’s New Leading Lady Tania Dutta

Let’s back track for a second: I was chosen to write for nerdslant for two two reasons.  The first was being an avid fan of all things Sailor Moon, the second my independent filmmaker status. I’ve been writing, producing, directing and editing the web-series Ghetto Nerd Girl for three years now; it’s loosely based on my life as a teenager. You can check out the first season on Youtube. As with any independent project, there are setbacks and very little money to make it... Read More
