Robert Castillo was hired to do Storyboards for Chris Rock's new movie Top Five. Chris Rock directs and plays Andre Allen, a Hollywood star who's like an amalgamation of Rock himself and Chris Tucker. After launching a massive stand-up comedy career, Allen became a movie star in a silly franchise called Hammy the Bear, which found him in a large, scraggly bear suit playing cops and robbers with co-star Luis Guzman. His three Hammy movies were worldwide juggernauts, but now Andre wants to be taken seriously. His latest film is Uprize, a "serious" play about the Haitian Revolution he hopes can become the "Haitian Django," since, by Andre's count, north of 2,000 white people are killed on screen. But the early reviews are scathing and the box office tracking is poor. Hoping to help Andre's image, his agent (Kevin Hart) sets up an all-day profile interview with hotshot New York Times reporter Chelsea Brown (Rosario Dawson) on the eve of Allen's highly publicized wedding to Bravo reality star Erica Long (Gabrielle Union). Top 5 should be released around December of this year.

I had the pleasure of meeting The one and only Robert Rodriguez at The wizard world Chicago Comic Con on August 10th. I presented Robert with a portrait of himself which he really loved!
Rodriguez, whose previous movies include Machete, Sin City, From Dusk Till Dawn and Once Upon a Time In Mexico, conducted “A Conversation With… Robert Rodriguez” on Friday evening, August 9 featuring exclusive sneak peeks of Machete Kills and Sin City 2: A Dame to Kill For, an exclusive presentation on The Art of Frank Frazetta, a preview of his upcoming Frank Frazetta project, Fire and Ice, a Q&A, plus special guest appearances.
In addition, Rodriguez unveiled The Art of Frank Frazetta featuring 15 masterwork original paintings including “Death Dealer,” “The Barbarian,” “At the Earth’s Core,” and even Frazetta’s original “From Dusk Til Dawn” painting he made for the 1996 film. The artwork was be available for viewing all four days of the convention, Thursday, August 8 through Sunday, August 11.
The innovative filmmaker first gained attention with El Mariachi in 1993, then had his first major release with Desperado two years later, starring Antonio Banderas. Rodriguez followed that up with the vampire film From Dusk to Dawn, with megastars George Clooney and Quentin Tarantino (with whom he has collaborated on several film projects). He also showed versatility with the family film Spy Kids in 2001, then had success with Grindhouse (2007) and Machete (2010).
