Get Him to the Greek (Food) Mix: Waters, Shadowns on Stars, Joel Plaskett, Mondrian, Masque, Stray Kites, Light Asylum, and more...

A Hollywood insider mentioned to me recently that they are planning a sequel to 2010's Get Him to the Greek. In this story Russell Brand's character, Aldous Snow, must help Aaron Green (Jonah Hill) escape the mundane flavors of processed food America. Snow has only three days to get Green to Greece, find him some gyros, hummus, falafel, salad, saganaki, dolmadas or spanikopita. Failure to do so will result in...well the insider didn't want to give away the ending. I've offered this soundtrack as it is entirely about the desire to seek out Greek food.

I don't know any Hollywood insiders by the way.
