Siblings Addison and Liza are on the run from a casino heist gone wrong. When a car accident leaves their wheel man and a state trooper dead, they split up and make a run for the Canadian border in the worst of circumstances a near whiteout blizzard. While Addison heads cross-country, creating mayhem in his wake, Liza is picked up by ex-boxer Jay (Charlie Hunnam), en-route for a Thanksgiving homecoming with his parents, June (Sissy Spacek) and retired sheriff Chet (Kris Kristofferson). It’s there the siblings are reunited in a terse and thrilling showdown that pushes the bonds of family to the limit.
High hopes for that one.
Christoph Waltz May Join Stephen Gaghan’s CANDY STORE; New Plot Details Emerge | Collider
Love Waltz...nice to see him cashing in after basically being an international secret for so long. Pitt/Denzel and Waltz...that ain't a bad start.Yesterday, we reported that writer-director Stephen Gaghan (Syriana) was developing the thriller Candy Store as his next project. Brad Pitt and Denzel Washington are apparently in early talks for the two leads in what’s described as “a crime thriller with meaty roles for the two main characters.” Today, new details have emerged about the film. First, it’s a high-profile magnet, and if Pitt doesn’t sign on, the list also includes Christian Bale, Ben Affleck, Matt Damon, and Bradley Cooper. Granted, these are actors on every list for high-profile movies, but it’s a telling strength of the project that Gaghan thinks he has a shot at getting them. There’s also an offer out to Christoph Waltz to play the role of “Black Zenga.” We don’t know anything about the character, but we do have some new details about the plot.
Hit the jump for more.
Per The Wrap:
The story follows an elite, highly trained deep-cover operative who loses everything, ultimately disappearing into Brooklyn, where he must start again. He washes up as a beat cop, only to discover the global organization he was dedicated to fighting is also operating in his new backyard.
Review: The devil wears La Perla in De Palmas disappointing Passion
So it’s with no small amount of dismay that I say that “Passion,” quite contrary to its title, is an eerily bloodless (if briefly ketchup-stained) contraption, a film noir so ploddingly un-alive to its own absurdities that its peaks of bad taste are rendered troughs by virtue of sheer humorlessness. Were De Palma’s name not on the thing, you’d assume it was the work of a genre journeyman with a hard-on for “Dressed to Kill” – and even then only in the second half, when the lighting scheme abruptly shifts into trademark high-contrast horizontals, an elaborate ballet-focused split-screen sequence signifies nothing in particular, and Pino Donnagio’s begins paying screeching homage to Bernard Herrmann, who had already playfully Xeroxed his style for DePalma in the 1970s. As arguably the most openly postmodern of the cine-literate generation of American auteurs that came to prominence 40 years ago, DePalma’s work has never belonged wholly to itself, but his frame of reference is oddly small and self-serving here.
**** you DePalma. I hate you for Mission To Mars, one of the worst movies I have ever been subjected to.
END OF WATCH Review. END OF WATCH Stars Jake Gyllenhaal and Michael Pena | Collider
Supposed to be pretty decent. Keep reading the same thing...that it's gimmicky due to the weird found footage kinda angle(one of the characters is doing some sort of doc project and so both officers have button cams etc.), yet the characters are what keep ya.
