While screenwriter William Monahan’s directorial debut, London Boulevard (2010) suffered from a surprising amount of cliché, we’re excited to see what he’s concocted with his sophomore feature, which sounds like it has all the makings of a delicious noir and with a catchy cast to boot.
Gist: The brilliant, near-suicidal artist, THOMAS (Garrett) who attempts to escape his privileged existence into the desert only to encounter a homicidal, chameleon-like drifter—JACK (Isaac). Their first encounter at a campfire sets up a nonstop, violent duel of physical and intellectual equals.
Release Date: In its search for a distributor, we’re expecting a festival premiere, though perhaps somewhere in the fall.
