Tweets Of The Week

A call to arms for Browncoats and surprising Super 8 news in this week’s tweets


Celeb auction Twitchange recently proved Twitter doesn’t always have to be inane ramblings and X Factor updates – the power of social media can be used for good. Raising hundreds of thousands of dollars for aHomeInHaiti is great ’n’ all, but the announcement late last week that flammable Three Kings film-maker David O Russell is back on board to adapt ace Playstation 3 action game Uncharted: Drake’s Fortune has kick started a campaign every man, woman and child should get behind.

@ NathanFillion If ever there was a Twitter campaign, let this be it. Rise, ye Browncoats. Rise, ye Castillions. RISE!

Seems the former Captain Mal, (currently on top form in the mighty Castle , if you were wondering what the “Castillons” reference was all about), has thrown his hat into the ring for the lead role of explorer Nathan Drake – a modern day Indiana Jones with Han Solo’s cock-sure swagger. We couldn’t think of anyone more perfect for the part. Now, who’s with us?
