Ren MacCormack (played by newcomer Kenny Wormald) is transplanted from Boston to the small southern town of Bomont where he experiences a heavy dose of culture shock. A few years prior, the community was rocked by a tragic accident that killed five teenagers after a night out and Bomont’s local councilmen and the beloved Reverend Shaw Moore (Dennis Quaid) responded by implementing ordinances that prohibit loud music and dancing. Not one to bow to the status quo, Ren challenges the ban, revitalizing the town and falling in love with the minister’s troubled daughter Ariel (Julianne Hough) in the process.

Footloose will be released to theaters on October 14, 2011.

Doug Liman To Climb " Everest"

Doug Liman has climbed aboard Everest, a Sony Pictures drama about George Mallory and his three attempts in the early 1920s to become the first man to climb the world’s highest mountain. The film, an adaptation of Jeffrey Archer’s book Paths Of Glory, has a script by Sheldon Turner. Jennifer Klein is producing. Liman has several projects percolating, including Luna, a moon mission film that Paramount Pictures and New Regency are trying to make work, as well as Warner Bros’ Dante Harper-scripted drama All You Need Is Kill. Liman, who directed the action hits The Bourne Identity and Mr. and Mrs. Smith, is himself an avid climber and a fan of the Mallory story. He is in the midst of a deal to supervise the next draft by Turner with the intention to direct a film that is a priority at Sony Pictures.

The film is about Mallory’s burning obsession to climb to the top of Mount Everest, and a rivalry with another great climber, Australian George Finch (the grandfather of actor Peter Finch), to get there first. While Everest has been scaled many times (though bodies are littered near the top of the summit of those who failed), the feat was symbolically important and for its time was akin to landing on the moon. Great Britain had been decimated by WWI, there was poverty and angst and the nation needed a hero to rally around. Mallory became that hero, even as he was forced to return short of his goal on his first two attempts in 1921 and 1922. At the same time, he was a devoted husband and father, and his family wanted him home. After refusing to use oxygen to aid him in high altitude on the first two attempts, he and his climbing partner, Sandy Irvine, changed tactics for their final run for the mountaintop in 1924. They were glimpsed near the top as they started the final approach to the top, but then disappeared in the clouds and were never heard from again.

Debate continues over whether Mallory reached the top, and it continued even after his remains were found in 1999 by climber Conrad Anker, 75 years after Mallory’s disappearance. Anker’s discovery — and subsequent attempt to scale Everest using the same thin garments, equipment and route used by Mallory and Irvine — was the subject of a remarkable 2010 Anthony Geffen-directed documentary, The Wildest Dream. One of the intriguing things was what wasn’t found on Mallory. He took with him a photo of his wife, which he vowed to place atop Everest. It was not found in his possessions. The first successful climb in which the men returned to tell the tale didn’t come until 1953, when New Zealander Edmund Hillary and Nepali sherpa climber Tenzing Norgay. Turner, who shared an Oscar nomination for co-writing Up In The Air, will make his directorial debut on By Virtue Fall, which he is producing with Klein.

50/50 Movie Review By:Rama

50/50 Movie Review
By:Rama
So let's all see what Rama thought of the movie 50/50. Enjoy his review and make sure to follow him on Facebook and Twitter.


I had my worries at first thinkin’ ‘how are they going to approach this subject matter through comedy?!’ especially with Seth Rogen and Evan Goldberg’s famous R-rated brand of humor. But their friend Will Reiser (this film is based on his experiences) who wrote the script is very respectful and sensitive to the effects that cancer could have on its victims both physically and emotionally because he himself has gone through the same hell.
There is only a few movies this year that give out a certain special kind of magic and 50/50 is one of them. I genuinely love this film. It’s one of the best, most heartfelt buddy comedies I’ve ever seen..


Inspired by personal experiences, 50/50 is an original story about friendship, love, survival and finding humor in unlikely places. Joseph Gordon-Levitt and Seth Rogen star as best friends whose lives are changed by a cancer diagnosis. Rogen also serves as producer, along with Evan Goldberg and Ben Karlin. Jonathan Levine directs from a script by Will Reiser. “We worked with Will on Da Ali G show, and it was shortly after that we learned he was sick.” Rogen recalls. “As shocking, sad, confusing and generally screwed up as it was; we couldn't ignore that because we were so ill-equipped to deal with the situation, funny things kept happening. Will got better, and when he did, we thought the best way to pull something good out of the situation was to get him to write a screenplay. Ideally we wanted to make a film that would be as funny, sad, and hopefully as honest as the experience we went through. As soon as the script was completed, it quickly became a passion project for all of us. It helped us come to terms with Will’s struggle as well as our own experiences.” 50/50 is the story of a guy’s transformative and, yes, sometimes funny journey to health. 50/50 draws its emotional core from Will Reiser’s own experience with cancer and reminds us that friendship and love, no matter what bizarre turns they take, are the greatest healers.


If you recalled, filmmaker Judd Apatow had a movie a couple of years ago called Funny People which is similar in that it was also an R-rated comedy about a terminally ill person. The huge difference is and this is probably why Funny People didn’t do so well, it’s because that film felt like two stories in one, it started out with friends dealing with the sickness and the possibility of dying but then it turned into a story about someone who trying to steal the woman who got away. And Apatow lost his humor in the process.
Whereas 50/50 stays consistent with the focus on Joseph Gordon-Levitt’s character and the humor stays funny.
This season, audiences are also asked to check out yet another cancer-themed film titled RESTLESS. The difference is.. Mia Wasikowska’s character is already strong and positive, so it was her boyfriend who felt the frustration, fear, and anger because he wasn’t ready to let her go.
Once again, 50/50 stays consistent on Levitt, he’s the one who feels frustrated and scared, understandably so, he’s the one who feels like he’s been given the unfair end of the bargain, as if life is either punishing him or not giving him a chance to make things right.


I really hope Reiser gets nominated for this original screenplay because I think the writing is strong, the dialogue is smart, witty, charming, funny and the story is deeply affecting. The characters he created have depth and the way he makes them evolve as the story progresses is done in a calm and sincere manner. None of the R-rated jokes are too outrageous, you won’t be turned off by any of them.
I’m a big fan of director Jonathan Levine’s indie film, The Wackness which I still think didn’t get the release that it deserved, but that’s another story for another time. With 50/50, Levine once again proves that he knows how to work relationship and friendship stories that are grounded, and he knows how to find balance between comedy and drama.


I really hope this is the movie that would put Levitt on the same level as today’s astounding young actors like Ryan Gosling for example.
Levitt, as Adam, lets you see that as much he’d try to go along with his bud’s agenda, as much as he’d try to befriend his psychiatrist, you can tell from his expression that a thousand thoughts keep running through his head. He could be sitting at bus stop or having sex in the bedroom but his mind would still be desperately trying to wrap his head around his condition.
There’s a scene in the hospital where he finally breaks down. And that scene is evidence of Levitt’s strength as an actor and Levine’s strength as a director
I was never too crazy about Rogen as cinema’s funnyman but as the best bud Kyle in this film, Rogen knocks it out of the park. Rogen understands that his character Kyle means well, he cares for Adam but he only knows his ways of showing it and that may come across as selfish when it’s actually not.
I don’t consider it silly to call their relationship more or less a bromance situation because Adam, even when he doesn’t feel like it, still tries to collect what’s left of his energy to go to Kyle’s social party and Kyle sits with Adam’s parents for hours, waiting at the hospital, even after Adam lashed out on him the evening before.
In a strange way, Kyle is Adam’s rock.



There’s Adam (Levitt) and Katie (Kendrick) and there’s Adam and Rachael (Bryce) and then there’s Adam and Kyle (Rogen). You see 3 characters react to Adam’s condition. One is not sure if she should go about doing it professionally like Adam is nothing but a case study or if there’s room for a more profound connection. One panics, unable to be strong enough to remain by Adam’s side through the bad times. And one sees it as an opportunity, not necessarily to take advantage of the situation but more along the line of .. this is the only way he knows how to cheer up his friend.
That’s what I love about Reiser’s script because it truthfully captures what a cancer patient goes through, that even in sickness, Adams still has to face some tough decisions about his life, but it also captures the impact that Adam’s condition has on the people around him.
Anytime there’s a slight chance of sunshine, something happens that would remind Adam that he would soon die and that eventually drives him furious.
50/50 is a movie that understands its audience. You will exit the theaters feeling hopeful.

GRADE: 5 out of 5

REAL STEEL Movie Review By: Rama

REAL STEEL Movie Review
By: Rama

Do you wanna know what Rama thought of Real Steel?  Did he think the robots knocked it out of the ring or not? Enjoy his review and make sure to follow him on Facebook and Twitter.



REAL STEEL is rock ‘em sock ‘em awesome! It empowers, entertains, and excites you. One of the best crowd-pleasing, feel-good movies of the year. Watch out for Dakota Goyo, this kid is goin’ places! What a bag of talents for such a young age. Hugh Jackman delivers his most powerful performance yet. Director Shawn Levy got himself a winner in REAL STEEL because this movie’s got energy to spare for the next century with its relatable underdog story complimented with father-son relationship that goes straight for the heart.
Not to mention the robots look absolutely fascinating, the fight sequences are pulse pounding and incredible.
If you ever wondered what the classy movie Rocky would be like if it were about a bunch of boxing robots, I highly recommend watching REAL STEEL..


A gritty, white-knuckle, action ride set in the near-future where the sport of boxing has gone high-tech, “Real Steel” stars Hugh Jackman as Charlie Kenton, a washed-up fighter who lost his chance at a title when 2000-pound, 8-foot-tall steel robots took over the ring. Now nothing but a small-time promoter, Charlie earns just enough money piecing together low-end bots from scrap metal to get from one underground boxing venue to the next. When Charlie hits rock bottom, he reluctantly teams up with his estranged son Max (Dakota Goyo) to build and train a championship contender. As the stakes in the brutal, no-holds-barred arena are raised, Charlie and Max, against all odds, get one last shot at a comeback.

I wanna talk about the robots first. Man, even the word ‘awesome’ doesn’t fairly describe how cool Noisy Boy, Atom, Midas, Zeus and the whole gang look, my goodness! And I’m glad the production didn’t go entirely CG with those bots, they hired the creative shop owned by the legendary FX master John Rosengrant (who worked with the late great Stan Winston for years) to come up with a few great animatronics and it’s a brilliant move because the interactions that Goyo’s character Max has with Atom are real, you can sense their connection in Goyo’s eyes because he didn’t have to imagine it or simply look at mark X or anything of the kind.


So the combo of those bots and the mo-capture CG handled by some of the best people in the business, result in sequences that will turn you into a believer.
When I’m rich someday, I’m gonna see if I could acquire Noisy Boy for my collection in my mansion, perhaps he could act as a greeter whenever a guest enters the front door.


The fights in this movie are intense and exciting, there’s never a dull moment. Whether it be the underground boxing where the rules don’t apply or at the WRB arena where the rules can be bent, the boxing sequences are well choreographed, they don’t insult certain audiences who may know boxing techniques by heart.
I hope there’d be a sequel. I’m aware that storytelling quality tends to diminish in sequels generally, but I’d rather have director Shawn Levy do this instead of the dreadful Night At The Museum franchise. Whatever keeps him from going back to that damn museum.
I think Levy’s and screenwriter John Gatin’s approach and tone for REAL STEEL are spot on. The father-son story doesn’t overpower the boxing scenes and vice versa, it’s a nice mix of entertainment and a family drama that’s not too dark and not too light either


Jackman is one of those good guys actors, you can’t help but like him, he’s a likeable dude, even when his character is a d*ck, which is why he’s perfect for the role of Charlie Kenton. He’s somewhat of a loser but part of you wants to see him win.
I find it interesting that Charlie’s kid Max (Goyo) seems more mature minded than his dad. Charlie is like a kid in an adult body, he’s so focused on big toys as long as they make money but when things start to go south, he freaks out instead of continuing to fight.
Max never really has his dad even when his dad stands right next to him because Charlie’s often got his mind on something else so there’s a pivotal moment nearing the final scene where Max sees his dad comes to life for the first time ever and that is the pretty much the whole essential point of REAL STEEL.



I’d like to think that exec producer Steven Spielberg may have some contribution to the emphasis of Goyo and the robot Atom because that relationship kinda reminds me of Elliot and E.T. or the kids and Bracchiosaurus in Jurassic Park, at least that’s the impression I get. Which is why J.J. Abrams had that scene of the kid standing face to face with the alien in Super 8 because that was something that’s so Spielberg-esque.
There’s a sense of awe that comes with curiosity. Max badly wants Atom, or anybody, to understand him, because his dad certainly doesn’t.
So the audiences get to wonder if Atom is more than just a robot. It’s a nice notion that adds to the story’s emotion.



Last but not least, I think this movie would not have worked if they’d cast the wrong kid and I’m glad Goyo played Max because Goyo is simply electrifying, his performance is effortless and beyond impressive. That kid needs to continue acting, he needs to make this his career because he’s seriously good at it.

New The Avengers Set Photos From Entertainment Weekly

On the heels of its overly massaged cover image, Entertainment Weekly has released a few more shots from The Avengers. And these show promise.

See rest of the pictures after the Jump...





I've gotta say: Looking at these behind-the-scenes photos from the set of Joss Whedon's Avengers, I feel a whole heck of a lot better about it than after looking at that cover. Robert Downey Jr., Chris Hemsworth, Jeremy Renner, Scarlett Johansson and Chris Evans look like they're having a good time ... hopefully that'll translate into a good movie.

"X-Files" Chris Carter Bringing "Unique" To The Small Screen

X-Files creator Chris Carter is heading back to the small screen.

After several years away from Hollywood despite heavy demand, Carter has reemerged with a female-lead mystery police thriller titled Unique. The project, which is set up at Media Rights Capital, has a supernatural element to it. He is set to write and executive produce.

Carter spent nearly a decade at the helm of the David Duchovny and Gillian Anderson vehicle, which ran from 1993 to 2002. The series not only helped put host network Fox on the map but also define it as a destination for edgy, quality fare.

In addition to a rich ancillary revenue that came from DVD and merchandise, the franchise spawned two feature films, 1998's The X Files and 2008' The X Files: I Want to Believe. Last month, Anderson told an Australian morning show that there's talk of a third X-Files feature. "I hope it happens," she said. "There's talk of it."

Mortal Kombat Returning To The Big Screen Thanks To Tancharoen

Mortal Kombat is heading back to the big-screen.

New Line is hiring the filmmakers of the popular Mortal Kombat digital series, made earlier this year by corporate sibling Warner Bros. Digital Distribution, to take on a new adaptation of the classic 1990s fighting game.

The movie deal marks the end of a journey for Kevin Tancharoen, who will direct the new film. Tancharoen, a choreographer for Madonna and Britney Spears who directed the 2009 remake of Fame and more recently the Glee concert movie, directed a short film Mortal Kombat: Rebirth as a proof of concept for a Kombat movie he tried to pitch. A huge fan of the video game (and knowing Hollywood wouldn’t give him a shot at the title), he enlisted Oren Uziel to write the short and hired actors such as Michael Jai White and Jeri Ryan.

The short was viewed more than 10 million times on YouTube, and although no movie deal materialized, he was asked to direct the 10-episode web series, which debuted in April, attracting more than 50 million unique visitors.

Off that success, Warners and New Line execs thought it was time to try to revisit a big-screen effort. (New Line made a Mortal Kombat movie in 1995, which grossed more than $70 million domestically and helped launch a directing career for Paul W. S. Anderson. A follow-up movie in 1997, however, fizzled.)
Uziel is returning to write the new movie, which is still in the development stages. There is no actor attached and the new story will not serve as an extension of the game or digital series.

Dave Neustadter and Walter Hamada are overseeing for New Line.

The game’s long-standing appeal lies in being able to face off against an opponent, using various weapons and fighting styles, via human or alien avatars. The catchy title doesn’t hurt, either.

Dark Horse New York Comic-Con Exclusive Spider-Man

As part of the Marvel Syrocos program that debuted at San Diego Comic-Con International in July, it is announced today that Dark Horse will be releasing another exclusive Spider-Man statue for New York Comic Con!

New York Comic Con attendees will have a very significant opportunity to acquire a special statue released just for the show. Much like the previously released and long-sold-out SDCC exclusive, a very limited number of this statuette is being offered. It is packaged in the same litho-printed tin box that is the hallmark of the Dark Horse Syrocos, and is destined to be a bona fide hot item, both at the show and far beyond the exhibit hall. It will be sold at the normal retail price of $49.99, with a limit of four per customer.

“We wanted to evoke New York with our very special exclusive Spider-Man,” said Dark Horse’s VP of Product Development, David Scroggy. “Unfortunately, space constraints made a rooftop water tower or fire escape impossible, but we still hope fans can sense the city in this piece.”

The Marvel Syrocos program kicked off earlier this month with two alternating series: Classic Marvel Characters and the Fantastic Four. This new line will be deliberately different than the common modern Marvel collectible sculpture, with features like a rougher surface texture, visible seam lines, and other slightly distressed aspects, such as the method of paint application.

These special New York Comic Con exclusives will be available at four p.m. on Thursday, October 13. Don’t miss your chance to own one of these fantastic statues!

Synopsis:
Norman Long is a high school loner, a self-aware and darkly funny teen who’s just trying to handle his daily existence. In the wake of his mother’s sudden death, Norman must now also deal with the reality that his father is starting to lose his battle with stomach cancer.

Norman, depressed and angry, unintentionally gets caught in a lie that he, in fact, has stomach cancer. Soon his complete distortion of the facts spirals out of control. Part coping mechanism, partially as a way to feel closer to his father, and to a certain degree to prepare others for his possible suicide, Norman begins to imitate his father’s debilitating physical symptoms, dramatically affecting his life and the world around him.

Emily, a magnetic girl with one of those rare enchanting smiles, gets caught up in Norman’s fabrication and struggles with her deep rooted romantic feelings in the face of Norman’s “impending” death. Ultimately, Norman must confront a burning set of conflicting emotions as he struggles to define his relationship with his father, his love for Emily, and ultimately who he will be as a young man.

Rated: Unrated
Release date: October 21
Distributor: AMC Independent
Starring: Dan Byrd, Emily VanCamp and Richard Jenkins

Red-Band Trailer For I MELT WITH YOU

Today Magnolia Pictures has delivered the Red-Band trailer for their upcoming film I MELT WITH YOU. The film will be available on Magnolia On-Demand November 4 followed by its theatrical release on December 9th

Richard (Thomas Jane), Ron (Jeremy Piven), Jonathan (Rob Lowe) and Tim (Christian McKay) are old college friends that gather annually for a week in Big Sur to celebrate their friendship and catch-up on each other’s lives. They seem like typical men in their forties – all with careers, families, and enormous responsibilities – but like most people there is a lot more beneath the surface.



As the week progresses, they go down the rabbit hole of excess as mountains of drugs are consumed to a blaring rock 'n' roll soundtrack. Parties with much younger women spin out of control. Exhausted and run ragged, they bare their souls to one another revealing the disillusionment with their lives. As the truth emerges, the reunion takes a much darker turn when a promise from their past is brought to light. From director Mark Pellington, I MELT WITH YOU is a visually dazzling, wild and wooly trip deep into the male psyche, driven by four amazingly committed and profound performances.

John Goodman Is Going To Take A Flight

John Goodman has joined the cast of the Robert Zemeckis-directed Flight, which stars Denzel Washington as an airline pilot who averts a plane crash, only to come under a cloud for possible substance abuse problems. Goodman will play a friend of the pilot who helps him come to terms with his problems.

Goodman, who stars in the Michel Hazanavicius-directed silent film The Artist, is shooting the Ben Affleck-directed Argo and most recently wrapped the Stephen Daldry-directed Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close, which stars Tom Hanks and Sandra Bullock.

Meet Supermans Mommy. Ayelet Zurer Set To Play Lara Lor-Van

Superman is getting a new mom. Ayelet Zurer, the Israeli actress who starred in Angels & Demons and who played the wife of Avner (Eric Bana) in Munich, has been set to play the role of Lara Lor-Van, Superman’s Kryptonian mother, in Man of Steel.

Production is underway on the Warner Bros/Legendary film. That role was originally going to be played by Julia Ormond. I was unable to find out why director Zack Snyder made the last-minute change, but I’ve confirmed that Zurer will start filming this week. Henry Cavill plays Superman, Russell Crowe plays Superman’s Kryptonian father, Jor-El, and Amy Adams, Kevin Costner, Diane Lane and Michael Shannon also star.

Zurer will next be seen starring in the Lawrence Kasdan-directed Darling Companion opposite Diane Keaton, Kevin Kline and Dianne Wiest for Sony Pictures Classics. She’s repped by IFA Talent Agency. Man of Steel is produced by Chris Nolan, Charles Roven, Deborah Snyder and Emma Thomas.

Mission: Impossible-Ghost Protocol Opens Early In Imax

Paramount is taking the unusual step of opening Brad Bird's Mission: Impossible—Ghost Protocol first in Imax and other select theaters five days before it opens everywhere Dec. 21.

In another key change to its 2011 holiday calendar, Paramount said it is moving up the release of Steven Spielberg’s The Adventures of Tintin by two days to Dec. 21 (including Imax theaters). That quickly promoted Disney to announce it will now open Spielberg's second Christmas film War Horse on Christmas Day, instead of Dec. 28.

The moves reflect an aggressive effort to capitalize on the lucatrive--and crowded--Christmas frame.
Ghost Protocol, returning Tom Cruise in the marquee role of Ethan Hunt and introducing Jeremy Renner to the franchise, now launches Dec. 16 in north of 250 theaters in what Paramount are calling preview runs.
From the beginning, Bird wanted Ghost Protocol to open first in Imax theaters, since parts of the pic were shot with Imax cameras.

And from Paramount's perspective, hosting previews should be a great way to build word-of-mouth.
"Our thought was to get the movie going heading into the Christmas. We've screened the entire movie, and the response has been fantastic. People also saw how great the Imax footage was," Paramount vice chairman Rob Moore said.

It isn't the first time Paramount has used unorthodox measures to open a film. So far, they've worked well. This summer, Paramount held exclusive 3D showings of Transformers: Dark of the Moon the night before the movie opened nationwide. And the studio launched box office hit Paranormal Activity in 13 college towns.
With Guest Protocol, Paramount is being even more aggressive in an effort to whip up

Showtime & Antoine Fuqua To Deliver Suge Knight Film

Just weeks after Showtime bowed its Paul McCartney documentary, the premium cable network is delving into another music-themed effort with Suge Knight.

Training Day’s Antoine Fuqua will direct and produce the tentatively titled project based on the life and exploits of the Death Row Records co-founder. Black Swan’s Bradley J. Fischer will produce alongside Fuqua. The Knight doc is the first in a series of new documentaries produced by Showtime that will spotlight iconic and controversial figures to be overseen by filmmakers.

“Suge Knight’s reputation and rise to power in the music business has become the stuff of legend, and he remains one of the entertainment industry’s most provocative and enduring myths,” Fischer said in a statement announcing the news Tuesday. “But while his name elicits an immediate and powerful reaction from people around the world, very few can legitimately claim to know the man. Antoine Fuqua and I are thrilled to be partnering with Showtime to tell this remarkable story and take audiences behind a curtain that most have been terrified to even approach.”

Knight will participate in the doc and will discuss his rise to fame, why it fell apart and what’s next. The former CEO of Death Row Records is credited with launching the careers of Snoop Dogg and P Diddy, among others.

David Prior, Laeta Kalogridis, James Vanderbilt, Lisa Remington and Edward McGurn will executive produce, with Pulitzer Prize-winning journalist Chuck Philips co-producing.

The effort also doubles as Knight’s return to the music business: the producer set to oversee the film’s soundtrack, which will feature original tracks from new and established performers, through his new company Black Kapital.

Wanted Sequel In The Works

Derek Haas and Michael Brandt are feeling Wanted all over again.

The screenwriting duo have been tapped to work on Wanted 2 for Universal, which is developing the sequel to the hit action movie starring Angelina Jolie and James McAvoy.

The 2008 movie, directed by Timur Bekmambetov, was based on a comic mini-series by Mark Millar and J.G. Jones and centered on a disillusioned office worker who discovers his father was part of a secret society of super-human assassins. Brandt and Hass wrote the screen story and shared screenwriting credits with Chris Morgan.

The movie grossed $341 worldwide, so it wasn’t long before Universal put a sequel into development. But finding a story proved harder to crack. Morgan was commissioned to work on the project back in the fall of 2008. In 2009, Evan Spiliotopoulos was brought on board before the project quietly faded away.

Now Haas and Brandt will move the Wanted 2 needle forward, based on Spiliotopoulos’ work.

Marc Platt is producing alongside Bekmambetov. Jim Lemley, Ken Levin and Jason Netter also are producing. Jeff Kirschenbaum and Anikah McLaren are overseeing the project for the studio.

Haas and Brandt wrote the upcoming Richard Gere political thriller The Double, which also marks Brandt’s directorial debut. The duo also wrote The Courier, the upcoming crime thriller starring Mickey Rourke and Jeffrey Dean Morgan.
