Needless Things Podcast Episode 13 – CM Landrus from Mission starring Mil Mascaras

October 1st, 2013


Breaking News: CM Landrus – today’s guest - sent me an e-mail late last night letting me know that the Mission Indiegogo campaign had been put on hold. I don’t know the whole story, but I get the feeling that a few more resources need to be gathered before the film is ready to be as big a deal as it should be. I wish CM and the rest of the crew the best of luck in getting what they need together.

I never imagined that I might be able to interview the person responsible for bringing a future Mil Mascaras movie into being, but that’s exactly what happened. Thanks to the incomparable Joe Crowe of the Dragon Con American Sci-Fi Classics Track I was able to talk to CM Landrus, the Producer and Director of Mission, the new Mil movie. It’s written by Jeffrey Uhlmann – the man who scripted the last two Mil films. He has a fantastic understanding of Luchador movies and the tone and content that people expect out of them.


I was honestly a little nervous because this is the first interview I’ve done where I haven’t’ really had any contact with the person beforehand, but it went very well. There’s a whole lot of information about not only Mission, but Academy of Doom and Aztec Mummy. We also get into how Hollywood works, the massive learning process that is getting a movie into production, and how crowdfunding is different from more traditional ways of financing movies.

Now it’s time for the interview. There’s a lot of good stuff here. If you like what you hear, go throw a few bucks at Mission. We need fresh, new Lucha Cinema around this joint:
