Some Good News & Some Bad News

In a recent interview with Movieweb, director Ryan Page dropped two significant tidbits of Balk news. First, the bad, Balk has been cut out of his documentary about the Arizona vineyards of Tool frontman Maynard James Keenan Blood Into Wine. Ryan is quick to make it clear that this editing choice was through no fault in Balk’s contributions (“Faruza didn’t make the cut. She is not in the film anymore. It had nothing to do with her.”) which brings us to the good in which Page backs up his praise of Ru by announcing he has cast her in a supporting role, along with the aformentioned Keenan in a comedy titled Queens of Country about a women obsessed with the great women of the opry (Dolly Parton, Patsy Cline, Loretta Lynn and Wanda Jackson being specifically namedropped) who embarks on a road trip to track them down. Page says “a very popular late night sketch duo” did some script doctoring for the project but felt it prudent to not name them, Consequence of Sound has a plausible theory of their identity.
