"You have no idea what men of power can do!"
When No Way Out arrived in theaters in the summer of 1987, audiences were just starting to take notice of Kevin Costner because of his appearance one month earlier in The Untouchables and Australia-born Kiwi director Roger Donaldson was a complete unknown. Only a few years later, Costner would be one of the hottest leading men in Hollywood and the Academy Award-winning writer and director of Dances With Wolves, while Donaldson would achieve incredible success with such varied movies as Cocktail and Species, but No Way Out is what brought both men to the fore.
A crime thriller set during the Cold War, No Way Out stars Costner as Tom Farrell, a heroic Naval officer hired to work at the Pentagon for Secretary of Defense David Brice (Gene Hackman) and serve as his liaison to the CIA. When Brice finds out that his mistress (Sean Young) has been cheating on him with another man, he kills her and tasks Farrell with the job of hunting down her lover. The only problem? Farrell was her lover. Love, lust, murder, corruption, No Way Out contains all of the ingredients of a classic crime thriller, with enough twists and turns to leave you guessing right up until the very end.no way out

Anchor Bay Films has released a new domestic theatrical trailer for director Roger Donaldson's (The Bank Job) long-delayed and frequently renamed dramatic thriller Seeking Justice (formerly The Hungry Rabbit Jumps and simply Justice) to promote the movie's new March 16th release date. Seeking Justice first opened in Italy back in September of last year and it has already played pretty much everywhere else on Earth save for the U.S. and the Netherlands.
Seeking Justice stars Nicolas Cage as Will Gerard, an ordinary guy whose life is turned upside down when his wife (January Jones) becomes the victim of a violent assault. Desperate for justice, Will accepts the help of a stranger named Simon (Guy Pearce) who promises to track down and punish his wife's assailant. However, Will discovers that the justice provided by Simon comes at a terrible price. watch the theatrical trailer >> Posted 01.31.12 by BrentJS
Remember that new crime thriller that Roger Donaldson (The Bank Job) was directing in New Orleans? The one starring Nicolas Cage, Guy Pearce and January Jones about a husband who enlists a vigilante group to seek retribution on the man who assaulted his wife? It had that bizarre but original name? What was it? Oh, yeah, The Hungry Rabbit Jumps? No? That's okay, because it's going by a new name now anyway. Or, rather, several names.
In the U.K., it's now called Justice, while here in the States it's Seeking Justice. The movie has yet to get a U.S. release date, but it has already opened in Italy and will soon open in several other European countries and a trailer for the U.K. release has just gone online. In addition, Collider has posted a batch of new still images from the movie. watch the trailer >> Posted 09.24.11 by BrentJS

Production was set to begin in August, and posters of the movie were plastered at the Cannes Film Festival promoting a 2011 release. Then, director Simon Crane left the project because, as LatinoReview reported, "it wasn't working out." With an August start date approaching, production company Millenium Films started talks with several directors for the job. Who'll Direct? >> Posted 06.10.10 by Ryan

On its blog Heat Vision, The Hollywood Reporter writes that Nicolas Cage has signed on to star in the upcoming thriller Hungry Rabbit Jumps. The news comes just one week after the announcement that Cage would star in another revenge flick, Drive Angry.
Hungry Rabbit Jumps is being directed by Roger Donaldson, who also helmed Thirteen Days, The Recruit, and The World's Fastest Indian. The script by Robert Tannen involves a man who becomes entangled with an underground vigilante organization after his wife falls victim to a brutal crime.
Tobey Maguire is acting as one of the movie's producers (through his company, Maguire Entertainment), and the movie is reportedly scheduled to begin filming in New Orleans this coming January. Also producing is Jim Stern of Endgame, who commented briefly on the project:
As a company, we've been wanting to do a thriller for a long time ... In the best of the Hitchcockian tradition, we've got a character who's offered the chance for vengeance and he finds himself in over his head.
No release date or other casting decisions have been announced. Posted 09.08.09 by reelz
