Lack of updates/”Harold” trailer
May 16, 2009

First of all, sorry for the lack of updates the past several months. I’ve had my fair share of personal dilemas, so I haven’t been following the Fredster at all. (can’t even remember the last time I read a Google alert….I have over 800 unread ones in my email…I’ll catch up someday)

Anyways, I thought I’d post about the “Master Harold…and The Boys” trailer being officially online. You can watch it by pasting this link into your browser: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gMI7YbcTC-4

I think Freddie looks pretty good for the most part 🙂

Freddie filming in Cape Town, South Africa
January 30, 2009

I’ve found an article that serves as confirmation that Freddie is currently in Cape Town, South Africa shooting Master Harold…and the Boys.

Production is set to wrap on February 14th, which is also, as I’m sure you already know, Freddie’s birthday.

Here you can see a bit of insight on the plot:

An ordinary rainy afternoon in 1950s South Africa turns into a profound, life-changing experience for a young white boy when his world is turned upside down with the announcement of the imminent return from hospital of his crippled, alcoholic father. In the small tea-room/café owned by his family, Hally turns his anger and resentment on Sam, a middle-aged waiter, his role-model and surrogate father and on Willie, a co-worker who’s preoccupied with winning a ballroom dancing championship. In this wrenching look at the effect of peer pressure and prejudice on a loving bond it soon becomes clear that in life, unlike the dance floor, people will forever collide despite their best intentions.

Also, as you may have heard, Astro Boy has struggled with funding a bit with the recession. However, the film is still on, and set for release on October 23, 2009

New Projects?
December 23, 2008

According to IMDb and Wikipedia, Freddie has 2 new live-action projects ahead!

Freddie may be playing the role of ‘Andy‘ in A Holiday For Animals. However I can’t find any sources other than Wikipedia claiming this. I can’t find any information on this film.

It’s also rumored that Freddie will be playing the title role, ‘Hally‘ in Master Harold…and the Boys. This project seems more likely to be happening than the other, but Imdb says it’s rumored, and I can’t find any other sources claiming this. However if you want to know about the story, you can read up here.
