News Round Up
It’s been a busy few weeks for Dan, so I think we’re due a bit of a round up!
The F Word
The F Word will be released in the US on 1st August 2015 (as What If), opening in LA and NY and expanding across the country over the following two weekends. It will be released elsewhere, under its original title, from 22nd August.
Originally scheduled for a January 2015 release, Frankenstein has been pushed back to October 2015. Dan finished work on the film last week, and said goodbye to his Igor hair extensions with a post on his Google+ page.
Kill Your Darlings
Kill Your Darlings is now available on DVD and Blu-Ray in the US, and is scheduled for a UK release 21st April. The extras include deleted scenes, one of which can be seen here.
The Cripple of Inishmaan
The three month Broadway run of The Cripple of Inishmaan starts in just a fortnight, with the original London cast set to reprise their roles. Dan spoke to Entertainment Weekly about his return to the New York stage, and the lessons he has learned from his time on Broadway and the West End. You can read the interview here.
A new TV advert for the play has been released, and is embedded below.
Dan will be participating in a Times Talk on 31st March to promote the play, and you will be able to watch a livestream of the 90 minute talk here. The event starts at 6:30pm EDT (11:30pm BST), and should be archived for those of you that don’t fancy staying up until the wee small hours.
On 1st April, Dan will be a guest on Live with Kelly and Michael, and on the 3rd April, he will appear on the Tonight Show Featuring Jimmy Fallon. The 4th April will see Dan making an appearance on The Today Show. Check your local listings for times and channels.
Dan and Social Media – “Only epigrammatic people should be on Twitter”
Definition of EPIGRAM, courtesy of Merriam Webster:
1 : a concise poem dealing pointedly and often satirically with a single thought or event and often ending with an ingenious turn of thought
2 : a terse, sage, or witty and often paradoxical saying
3 : epigrammatic expression
Let’s talk Twitter.
Dan has mentioned countless times that he doesn’t have a Twitter account, so it stands repeating – he doesn’t have a Twitter account. He just doesn’t, however much some of us may want him to.
Unfortunately, over 800,000 of you have been fooled by @DanieIRadcIiffe, who is passing off Dan’s Google+ posts as original tweets. That account, and any other claiming to be Dan, are all fakes. Fake accounts may seem innocuous, but people are quick to believe what they read on the internet and there are unscrupulous people willing to exploit that. Dan’s only social media presence is on Google+, and his page can be found here.
If and when Dan does join Twitter, you’ll read about it here and on other fan websites, and he will have a little blue ‘verified’ symbol next to his user name.
So, unfollow the fakes (and if you haven’t already, follow us) and make your Twitter feed a much nicer place.
