Clancy Brown and Daniel Wu Cast in WARCRAFT – Inspires New Song

Confirmation came of new cast members of Duncan Jones’ WARCRAFT last night from Legendary Pictures in the shape of Clancy Brown and Daniel Wu. No details as to which roles they have been cast in at the moment (as is the case with the previous casting news) but Brown’s casting in particular has excited Jones and inspired a new song for Chesney Hawkes and Nik Kershaw to get to work on.

Greeting the world from his Twitter account earlier Jones said:

Duncan Jones Has The Horn 19 Dec 2013
Duncan Jones Has The Horn
ManMadeMoon
Gooood morning all! I’ve got CLANCY FRIGGIN BROWN in Warcraft! I have to say it…. “There can be only one!”

We’ve all been trying to figure out how Chesney Hawkes’ hit ‘The One and Only’ would be worked into WARCRAFT after being featured in both of Jones’ previous features (MOON & Source Code) and it seems after a wee think, Duncan has had a blinding flash of inspiration combining the song with a phrase from one of Clancy Brown’s most famous films ‘Highlander‘:

ManMadeMoon
Hmmm…. Hmmm…. Hmmmmmm…… “There can be one and only!”

The Record Club & Shipley Film Society Present MOON & Hunky Dory 22nd January

The Record Club & Shipley Film Society Present MOON, Hnky Dory & PWEIAnyone near Shipley, West Yorkshire has a unique opportunity to attend a great evening of film and music.

The Record Club along with Shipley Film Society are holding an evening of film & music on Sunday, January 22nd. A screening of Duncan Jones award winning 2009 debut MOON starring Sam Rockwell, will be followed by a full play through of David Bowie’s 1971 classic album Hunky Dory (celebrating it’s 40th Birthday!) on vinyl πŸ™‚

The Record Club were inspired by reading an article on the BBC News site on record clubs and the idea of returning to listening to vinyl LPs all the way through, as originally intended by the recording artiste. Shipley Film Society’s aim is to bring together like minded people for film viewing and discussion over a few drinks afterwards. Combine the two and you have what promises to be a wonderful evening of film & music with a bunch of great people to boot!

As well as MOON & Hunky Dory, the evening will also be mixing in associated music including records from MOON score composer Clint Mansell’s former band Pop Will Eat Itself. Shipley Film Society have also requested that anyone that owns 7″ vinyl copies of Chesney Hawkes ‘The One and Only’ and Katrina & The Waves ‘Walking On Sunshine’ bring them along too. If you’ve seen MOON you’ll know why, if not…

When: Sunday, January 22nd 2012 @ 19:00

Where: The Kirkgate Centre, Shipley, BD18 3RR

As all of you who have seen MOON will know, Chesney’s classic ‘The One And Only‘ plays a prominent role in the story of Sam Bell, with Director, Duncan Jones, insistent at the time of production that the song be used. So, it seems fitting that we throw our support behind Chesney, and vote for him in tonights phone in, and in doing so, help raise funds for this years Comic Relief charity.

If you can, please watch BBC1 tonight, from 18:40, and vote Chesney, who will be dancing with his teen heart throb (and many of ours) Clare Grogan.Β He’s up against stiff competition from , Toyah Wilcox, Limahl, Marcus Briggstocke and Adrian Edmondson to name a few (It’s couples night I think).

If you’re wondering what to expect, here’s The Mighty Boosh’s Noel Fielding dancing to Kate Bush’s ‘Wuthering Heights’ last week.
