Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #57. David Gordon Green’s Manglehorn

Manglehorn

Director: David Gordon Green
Writer: Paul Logan
Producers: Lisa Muskat, David Gordon Green, Derrick Tseng
U.S. Distributor: Rights Available
Cast: Al Pacino, Holly Hunter, Chris Messina, Harmony Korine

Aside from the trio of forgettable studio films, David Gordon Green has been synonymous with indie film as a filmmaker and perhaps even more so as a producer (Shotgun Stories, Great World of Sound, Compliance, The Comedy, Land Ho!). We’re banking that his succession of sturdy 2013 offerings in Prince Avalanche and Joe equates to another solid feature in Manglehorn – which sees the iconic Pacino and Harmony Korine suiting up.

Gist: This is the story of an eccentric man (Pacino) who tries to come to terms with a past crime that cost him the love of his life.

Release Date: Filming took place past the midway point last year and this could actually end up in Cannes, though Venice and TIFF would be perfect launch pads as well.
