Fake Movie Friday: 10:10

So I’m waiting for Zach to get here and we are going to go golfing. The trains are slow and I’ve decided to write a paranoid film in the style of 1408. REMEMBER 1408?! Cusack! Hotel Room! F it, this will be the reteaming of John Cusack and Samuel L. Jackson. This is my most Tigs film.

Brad Pitt in New Orleans Killing People

Brad Pitt’s a good actor, New Orleans is my favorite city, and Killing People is something I love seeing in my films.  So watching the trailer for Killing Them Softly, I am convinced this is going to be a great film.  It is directed by Andrew Dominik, who directed the brilliant, albeit long The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford.

I don’t know why The Weinstein Company swapped release dates with this and Tthe Master between September and October, but even if The Master is a lock for best picture nods, I think Killing Them Softly can also be a dark horse in the race.  Brad Pitt is an oscar favorite, though he hasn’t won, and the film has such a wealth of talent in it between Richard Jenkins, and James Gandofini etc, and Dominik.  I think this can break through.

But look at the trailer for yourself and be the judge:
