Ryan Kwanten Sees Truth In Journalism
For a new short

31 July 2013  |  Written by James White  |  Source: Adi Shankar (Via Collider)

Last year at the San Diego Comic-Con, Thomas Jane, along with producer Adi Shankar and director Phil Joanou, got a big reaction when they unveiled a hugely unofficial yet incredibly satisfying short called Dirty Laundry, which saw Jane reprising the role of Frank Castle, AKA The Punisher. Shankar was back at the Con, this time with True Blood's Ryan Kwanten and director Joe Lynch for Truth In Journalism. Because some things are better seen without too much advance warning, carve out roughly 17 minutes and watch the short.

Truth In Journalism finds Kwanten as a decidedly sleazy New York hack prowling the mean streets of the Big Apple for stories, usually those involving death or scandal. He’s being profiled by a French documentary crew following a traumatic incident he’s reluctant to talk about.

Suffice to say, something happens, but we won’t get into the details for fear of spoiling anything. While films like this run the risk of being felled by Marvel’s lawyers, Shankar and his collaborators do such a good job given their tight schedules and small budgets that it would be a shame if either short got yanked off the ‘net.

If you haven’t seen Dirty Laundry, you can check it out below…

Pretty sweet.
I'm glad I stuck with that, really cool. Reminded me a lot of Man Bites Dog...infact, so much so that it may not only be Marvel breathing down their necks. More
