LOS ANGELES - March 11, 2013 - PRLog -- Earlier this week, 8 Sided Films founder Tennyson E. Stead launched a fan-driven petition addressed to Marvel Studios, requesting that filmmakers Edgar Wright and Joss Whedon audition New Hollywood star Tybee Diskin for the role of Janet Van Dyne, AKA The Wasp, in the Ant-Man feature film and subsequent  Avengers movies.  “Tybee Diskin has keen listening skills, she has exquisite cool under pressure, and she has a loose, cocky wit”, explains Stead.  “That’s the Wasp!  Janet Van Dyne wins fights by unraveling them, instead of by trying to match her opponents blow-by-blow. ”  Diskin herself observes that “Janet and I have a lot in common: we're both problem-solvers, idealists, and a bit ridiculous.”

Recently, Stead cast Diskin as leading lady Dr. Chelsea Barrington in the upcoming 8 Sided Films science-fiction heist movie Quantum Theory.  Quantum Theory is the story of Chelsea and Roe, two brilliant, snarky women of science, who develop a prototype with the power to alter reality... until it’s snatched from under them by LDI, a ruthless and powerful defense contractor.  With reality itself under the control of a corporate military superpower, can Chelsea and Roe take back their technology and their world?  “Many of the qualities that make Tybee the perfect actor to lead Quantum Theory’s cast also make her an ideal social compass for characters like Hank Pym, Tony Stark, and Steve Rogers. Who else has the grace and moxie to break up a fight between Thor and the Hulk?”  Stead is currently writing, directing, and producing Quantum Theory.

“Edgar Wright has perfected the art of action with a dash of mischief”, Diskin reveals. “The chance to work with someone whose work I adore, and simultaneously delve deeper into this world of heroes, would be an absolute dream.”  Stead maintains that Diskin’s goals are the reason 8 Sided Films is supporting the petition.  “Like any repertory company, our ensemble succeeds by supporting one another, by supporting our larger film community, and by supporting the audience.  Tybee is one of the strongest and most original classical actors of her generation.  Her dedication to the craft, to genre storytelling, and to the audience has won her the loyalty of both the fans and myself.  Tybee’s earned the chance to prove herself to the powers that be, and our fans have earned the right to see her do it!”

Stead’s petition is currently live and taking signatures at the website  Tennyson E. Stead is the award-winning writer/director of recent science-fiction webseries “The Starmind Record” and is currently developing Quantum Theory for theatrical release.  Tybee Diskin recently completed production on the webseries “Aperature Laboratories”, and is now in development on Season Two of "Fallout: Nuka Break".  8 Sided Films is a repertory film company with several features currently in development, as well as numerous web collaborations and theater projects.  For more information on Quantum Theory and 8 Sided Films, ask the cast and crew
