Not a character spin-off from the X-Men series, but rather the directing debut from the writer of Real Steel, The Bourne Legacy and the more noteworthy title in his scribing filmography: The Fall. Paired with cinematographer Robert Elswit (Paqul Thomas Anderson’s right-hand man), this is an adult dramatic thriller might be our L.A. Confidential for the new age. Off the record, on the QT, and very hush-hush.
Gist: A young man stumbles upon the underground world of L.A. freelance crime journalism.
Release Date: Shot in October of last year, it would not be impossible to see this break into Cannes but this will likely be a red carpet premiere in Toronto where films featuring Jake G play like gangbusters and pact with a major studio.
