Murmurs of Breathless Anticipation & Inevitable Shame!

After last week’s explosive memo leakage, a shocking festival rejection, and what several “friends” of the studio have termed “internal tensions,” many were expecting Automatic Vaudeville to “roll over and play dead” for the rest of the winter season. New information, however, seems to indicate that just the opposite is in the offing from the world’s favorite micro-movie studio!

The latest (and straightest!) talk about town is that Automatic Vaudeville is just days away from announcing a date and venue for its next Schandcycle event, where the highly anticipated Schandfilm Drei will be unveiled. Enthusiasts speculate the event may feature live music, though it looks like (once again) said music will not be provided by the talented Jamiroquai. Many are wondering if the Schand event will also address several of the concerns brought to light by the leaked memo, namely the quality and quantity of laffs in the studio’s Coming Attractions.

Of course, the announcement of a Schandfilm event in early May may mean that the skeptics have been proven right: a big no-go on a Springtime Hi-Class Picture Show! Several AVS insiders have suggested a return to a Hi-Class Autumn may be in the works, but as for that show’s line-up, it’s tight lips all the way around. …Which means rumours of a Johnny Idaho detective picture and a glimpse of the long awaited Krangor: Legend of the Galaxy are just that: rumours.

Expect more exciting news and several Major Studio Announcements in the days to follow.

LATE BREAKING: Further investigation has revealed, in an embarassing development, that the aforementioned memo was leaked by none other than blog-happy AVS Head of Talent Mark Slutsky, who has also been named as author of the leaked memo. Self-serving promotional stunt or desperate cry for help? And how does this "prevue" controversy relate to what many industry insiders have dubbed a "less than overwhelming" reception for one-time awards season hopeful Gabor's War, the Nick Robinson vehicle helmed by Mr. Slutsky? An independent committee may be assigned to determine the answers to such questions. We will keep you posted.
