Aussie Kid Joins Viggo on The Road

Eleven year old Australian kid actor Kodi Smit-McPhee is about to get his big break in Hollywood: he will be co-starring alongside Viggo Mortensen in the post-apocalyptic drama/horror/action film “The Road”. In the flick, Viggo and Kodi must battle zombies cannibals and other assorted horror as they journey across a devasted U.S. And I thought my day was going badly!

More:

Smit-McPhee, 11, will play Mortensen’s son in the tale of a monthslong journey across a barren U.S. landscape after a cataclysmic event destroyed most of life on Earth. Charlize Theron co-stars in the Dimension Films drama.

I’ve always been a fan of post-apocalyptic movies (hey, I was one of the three people who actually liked “Waterworld”!), so the premise of “The Road” is right up my alley, right down to the endangered kid.

    zombies? Gee, I’ve read The Road three times and I don’t recall any “zombies” in it. Perhaps you meant to say cannibals?

    No zombies. Desperate people scrambling over the last remaining resources. Cannibals. Yeah. But no zombies.

    Nix, no offense buddy, but did you read the book? There are no zombies. :) This is not a zombie movie. They face stuff like starving militias, cannibals, desperate robbers, dying survivors, and lots and lots of wasteland, loneliness, and despair.

    Okay, okay, no zombies! Sheesh, you people. (I did not read the book, but apparently a lot of you people have.)

    For the record, I liked Waterworld too. I almost cried when the mariner’s catamaran was burned. I loved that boat. It was cool.
