Thomas Jane played Frank Castle, aka The Punisher, in 2004's The Punisher but ultimately passed on the mess that was 2008's poorly-received Punisher: War Zone (Ray Stevenson replaced Jane in the title role). Now Jane is back as the Punisher in a new, bloody, ten-minute short titled Dirty Laundry.
Directed by Phil Joanou (State of Grace, Gridiron Gang), Dirty Laundry shows Frank finding trouble no matter where he goes, even if its just to the laundromat. On producer Adi Shankar's (The Grey) YouTube page (via Collider), Jane offered an explanation on why he and his production company made a fan movie for The Punisher. warning: Dirty Laundry is indeed dirty >> Posted 07.16.12 by Ryan
In spite of the fact that the 2011 Sundance Film Festival press screening of director Mark Pellington's (Henry Poole is Here) new movie, I Melt With You, resulted in what New York Magazine (NYM) described as a "moviegoer exodus," speculatively attributed to the "movie's constant drug-taking, which is so immense that the characters may have more lines of coke than lines of dialogue," Magnolia Pictures picked up the distribution rights to the movie and will be releasing it On Demand on Nov. 4, before its limited theatrical run on Dec. 9.
Written by Glenn Porter, I Melt With You stars Rob Lowe, Thomas Jane, Jeremy Piven and Christian McKay as four former high school friends who reunite at a summer beach house to, as NYM puts it, "do drugs, cry and scream about their midlife crises, and do more drugs." Watch the new Red Band trailer and see for yourself why some have labeled the movie "a work of extreme self-indulgence," and others have praised it as "a perfectly cast film" that delivers "a profoundly moving experience.". read the synopsis & watch the Red Band trailer >> Posted 10.01.11 by BrentJS
Over the past five years, Sylvester Stallone has taken charge of his movies by writing, directing and starring, but for his next movie, the action flick Bullet to the Head (formerly referred to as Headshot), Stallone will take a break from multi-tasking and play a New Orleans hitman who partners with a New York cop to get revenge on the men that killed their respective partners.
Walter Hill (48 Hours, Warriors) is directing the movie, which was adapted from the French graphic novel Du plomb dans la tête (or, Bullet to the Head) by screenwriter Alessandro Camon (The Messenger). Production on Bullet to the Head began in late June, and will require a quick post-production schedule to make the April 13, 2012, release date Warner Bros. has just set for the movie.
Partnering with Stallone for Bullet to the Head is Fast Five actor Sung Kang, who was cast as the New York cop in July, replacing Thomas Jane. In late June, Jane explained his departure from the movie to Collider. why does Jane think he was fired? >> Posted 08.25.11 by Ryan
