‘Walking Dead’ Star Steven Yeun Set For Indie Thriller ‘Mayhem’

by Charles Bramesco March 17, 2016 @ 9:57 AM
On The Walking Dead, an actor never knows when it’s going to be his last week on set. It sure looked like Glenn Rhee (played by Steven Yeun) was out of the picture when he was covered by an entire horde of zombies in the most recent season, but then he wasn’t, somehow. But he could’ve been! And in that moment, Yeun (probably) realized just how precarious his spot on the cult-hit show really was, liable to evaporate with a few keystrokes out of the writers’ room. He began to make plans to ensure that he’d be secure in the event of a Walking Dead-less future, and today, those plans have solidified into a new movie role for the in-demand actor.

The actress has taken us to dark places with her sexy vampiress in 'From Dusk Till Dawn' and even threw some drug lord shade in 'Savages,' but now she's become an action starlet and has her eyes on the Yakuza.

Venom Short Film: 'Truth in Journalism' Tells a Supervillain Tale as a Faux Documentary

Technically, 'Truth in Journalism' is a fan film, but it's the kind of fan film that happens when everyone involved is a professional filmmaker with the goal of turning an entire genre upside down. This is a 16-minute short film disguised as a Belgian-made documentary shot in the '80s ... that just so happens to be about the iconic Spider-Man villain known as Venom. Yeah, it's really cool.
