Sturgill Simpson to appear at US Comic-Con panel

Rolling Stone is reporting this morning that Sturgill Simpson is set to appear on a panel at the 2019 Comic-Con in San Diego, discussing his involvement in the new Japanese anime film ‘Sound & Fury’ which mixes US music with the Japanese animation style.

They report: “Slated for Saturday, July 20th, the panel unites Simpson with Afro Samurai creator Takashi Okazaki and Batman Ninja director Junpei Mizusaki, the filmmakers behind Sound & Fury. The first trailer for the movie will be screened during the panel.

The collaboration is just the latest foray into film and television for Simpson. Most recently he made a cameo in the Jim Jarmusch film The Dead Don’t Die and provided the movie’s title song. He also costarred in the CBS All Access series One Dollar and appears as a police officer who pulls over a black couple in the upcoming film Queen & Slim.”
