Oooh. Ooooh. Ooooh.
Following another ludicrous “TEH MOVIE WILL NOT HAPPEN DWARD IS DEAD GIVE UP” post on the Webboard, Mr. Ellard (he needs a nickname, you know. How about… how about Big Man?) posted the following:
You know what I love about the Dwarf fan base? The
heavy-duty hardcore? The vocal net people who
always seem to reveal on a Tuesday what rd.co.uk
will be posting on a Friday?
It’s that when we do something we expect everyone
will notice, they never see it. When a line changes in
a news article, or the FAQ, young Symes is all over it.
(And good for him!) But when we anticipate uproar,
nobody clocks what we’ve done.
Like what? Oh, I dunno…maybe, just, y’know, for
example, the change of IMDb details for the Dwarf
film, mirrored in the crew roster on the movie page.
Or the removal of Doug’s DJ statement from the
Could anything be going on there…? ;-)
So, let’s do some investigating. Firstly: Doug’s DJ statement? Yep, that’s gone for a burton.
Now, annoyingly, the Web Archive hasn’t archived old versions of either the Crew Roster or Movie IMDB page. However, we’re pretty sure that Joseph D’Morais as Producer, Michael Rumpf as Production Designer, and Mike Seymour as Visual Effects guy are new. Along with the company Red Dwarf Films Co Ltd – which indeed replaces the huge bollocks list of production partners listed before.

Well, I’m excited…
