Though already in front of cameras,  Another Bullshit Night In Suck City is still picking up some indie darlings. Lili Taylor (who you might confuse with Liv Tyler thus totally screwing up a game of Six Degrees Of Kevin Bacon) has joined the Homeless Robert De Niro drama in an unspecified role.

Also joining up, (and don’t fall in love here, fellas) is Dale Dickey. You’ll recognize the actress from a wide variety of work including The Winter’s Bone, for which her portrayal of a meth-head won her an Indie Spirt award. Other places you may know her from are “My Name Is Earl” where she played a prostitute, and”Breaking Bad” where she played a… err, another meth-head. Oh, according to her IMDb page she’s done comedy. Here she is listed in a “Funny Or Die” sketch where she played the character of ‘Prostitute’. Goddamn. This poor woman. Her role in Bullshit Night isn’t specified, but let’s go ahead and assume her character’s name is Suck City. (The Playlist)

Hey you’n varmints. Pour your’nselves a cup of that good sarsaparilla and gather on roun’ now. We got our’nselves a good ol’ fasheened Castin’ Round Up to aggregate!

JULIANNE MOORE has joine Paul Dano and Robert De Niro in the homeless dad epic,  Another Bullshit Night In Suck City. No word yet on who Moore will play in the adaptation of the popular memoir but it will likely involve crying. You just know it will. (The Film Stage)

MIRA SORVINO and DERMOT MULRONEY have signed on to be super bummed out in Trade Of Innocents. They will play parents grieving the loss of their daughter who embark on a mission to free girls who have been sold into sex slavery. A rejected fourth act would have shown the two trying to enroll those they saved into a technical college. (THR)

LUKE EVANS and ROBERT CARLYLE are teaming up for the gritty cop drama Dogs Of Law. The London-based action thriller follows Evans as an undercover cop investigating his corrupt colleague Carlyle. I’m always quick to dismiss gritty cop thrillers like this but please keep in mind that police don’t carry guns in England. It will be a fun change of pace to see the bad guy killed with politeness. (Screen Daily)

Olivia Thirlby Joins De Niro And Dano In ‘Suck City’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/olivia-thirlby-joins-de-niro-and-dano-in-suck-city/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/olivia-thirlby-joins-de-niro-and-dano-in-suck-city/#comments Thu, 03 Mar 2011 19:09:15 +0000 Dave Horwitz http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=31431 The actress has signed on for a role opposite Paul Dano and Robert De Niro in 'Another Bullshit Night In Suck City'. Expect skinny emotions and squinting.

Olivia Thirlby is on an acting tear. The actress just wrapped the Judge Dredd reboot as well as The Darkest Hour, and she’s just signed on for a role in Paul Weitz’s adaptation of Nick Flynn’s memoir Another Bullshit Night In Suck City. The film, about the relationship between a father (Robert De Niro) and son (Paul Dano) that occurs while the son is employed as a caseworker in a Boston homeless shelter, will be a Focus Features production. Thirlby will play Dano’s love interest who gets him the job at the shelter.

The book is supposed to be terrific, so let’s hope that even though the film version is chock full of De Niro, Dano, homeless people, and of course, Boston, it doesn’t come out reeking of Oscar bait. (Deadline)

Dano and De Niro Prepare For ‘Another Bullshit Night’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/dano-and-de-niro-prepare-for-another-bullshit-night/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/dano-and-de-niro-prepare-for-another-bullshit-night/#comments Fri, 14 Jan 2011 02:04:06 +0000 Penn Collins http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=16645 Paul Weitz, Robert DeNiro, and Paul Dano are moving along with Weitz's dormant pet project, a movie based on the oh-so-effervescent memoir Another Bullshit Night in Suck City.

Paul Weitz, Robert DeNiro, and Paul Dano are moving along with Weitz’s dormant pet project, a movie based on the oh-so-effervescent memoir Another Bullshit Night in Suck City. The film follows a 20-something as he works in various homeless shelters, occasionally running across his estranged father. In case you couldn’t deduce, Dano will be the son and DeNiro the father.

Filming on the low-budget movie is expected to start in March, though no confirmation has been made. Casey Affleck was long attached to this project in Dano‘s role. No explanation has been given for the switch. Focus Features has picked up the film after Fox 2000′s interest waned with the departure of Affleck.

While little else has been divulged about the project, the book is set in Boston and New England, and Dano appears to be on the young side for the lead. Though the story takes place over years, it would seem that Flynn is more Affleck’s age than Dano’s for much of the story.

Weitz chasing down this project ought to do wonders to clean his soiled credibility after Little Fu-, excuse me, Little Fockers. Another Bullshit Night in Suck City has a blend of humor and heartbreak that Weitz demonstrated well in About a Boy and not at all in American Dreamz. Weitz seems like the right guy here, and the cast appears aces thus far. Don’t tell Ben Stiller about this. He’ll probably want to play an evil hot dog vendor or something.(The Playlist)
