Joe Flanigan attended Supanova 2013, and held talks in Brisbane (8 – 10 Nov. 2013) and Adelaide (16 – 17 Nov).
He entertained the fans with memories from the time he was shooting Stargate Atlantis, but also spoke about two new projects.
One of them is already in the pipe line, so to speak, as he announced having shot for Major Crimes, a series starring Mary McDonnell (from Battlestar Galactica) More info in our previous post. We don’t know yet when are we going to watch him and for how many episodes.
The other project is something he had mentioned earlier. He has bought the rights for the book A Terrible Splendor, by Marshall John Fisher, and is planning to produce a movie based on it, with Christopher Hampton writing the screenplay. Apparently he’ll play just a minor part in the movie.
Here below bits from his Adelaide panel, on Sunday 17 Nov, as shared by iamkkkkatie (Katie Isme) in this great facebook photo album (thx!).
Joe told us about a project he’s involved in based on the book “A Terrible Splendor”. Christopher Hampton is doing the screenplay. Joe is likely to be a producer (and have a small part in the movie)
Joe: “I like flea markets. It’s my feminine side. Jason likes flea markets too. That’s his feminine side.” Then he said something about how they’d make a great couple, going to flea markets together
He used a Scottish accent to tell the rocks in the backpack story & told the mooning David Hewlett story.
He stayed out till 4am. Anyone who knows Adelaide knows that’s pretty impressive… … then at 4am, 4:30am and 4:45am he received phone calls from his boys – the eldest, then middle one, then the youngest.
For reference, the programmes of Brisbane (8 – 10 Nov. 2013) and Adelaide (16 – 17 Nov. 2013) cons are listed below.
