Focus sees no ‘Limits’ in working with Jarmusch

Looking to populate its 08 slate, Focus Features have paired themselves once again with indie maverick Jim Jarmusch. The distributor will finance The Limits of Control – a project that will begin filming in Spain in the second month of 08'. Focus distributed the Bill Murray 2005 pic Broken Flowers. Stacey Smith and Gretchen McGowan will produce. Jon Kilik will exec produce.

Isaach De Bankole is on board to play a mysterious loner used to operating outside the law, who is about to complete a job in contempo Spain. The film will cast other players more commonly seen on the international level.

At this point, Jarmusch doesn't look to be in a hurry to contribute to the Untitled Orsay Museum project a series of films that would celebrate the 20th anniversary of the Musee d'Orsay in Paris. Hou Hsiao-Hsien was the first to contribute to the project with The Flight of the Red Balloon.
