Mel Gibson‘s parents must really be worried about him. Between the drinking, the anti-Semitic slurs, that beaver puppet, and this latest news, it might be time for some kind of dramati intervention.

The news in question is that Gibson has joined up with a heist comedy directed by Brad Mirman entitled Sleight of Hand which is also set to star Kiefer Sutherland, Gerard Depardieu, Thomas Jane, and Jon Lovitz, all of whom I guess could jump off a bridge and Mel Gibson would too. Here’s the plot synopsis, which will make all of Mel Gibson’s loved ones feel sad:

“[A] crew of small time crooks in Paris, who end up possessing a rare gold coin belonging to a notorious French gangster. The leader of the crew calls his uncle (Depardieu), a retired criminal, to help them raise the money to repay the gangster. The series of mix-ups and double crosses culminate as the gangs are pit face to face, chasing through Paris.”

It’s not clear yet exactly what Gibson’s role in the movie will be, but it will undoubtedly feature the formerly nice young man being up to no good. (Variety)

Don't put that in the Coke machine-- damn it, too late.

It seems like Gerard Depardieu, Thomas Jane, Til Schweiger, and Jon Lovitz, who I assume will play the much-feared, villainous French gangster. He’ll do it with a little thing called… acting.

Slight of Hand will be directed by Brad Mirman. (Variety)

He’s Tom Jane, He’s Starring Opposite Sylvester Stallone http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/hes-tom-jane-hes-starring-opposite-sylvester-stallone/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-news/hes-tom-jane-hes-starring-opposite-sylvester-stallone/#comments Mon, 18 Apr 2011 19:43:27 +0000 Joseph Gibson http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=207539 He just wants his kids back!

The post He’s Tom Jane, He’s Starring Opposite Sylvester Stallone appeared first on Screen Junkies.

Actor Thomas Jane is famous for many things: Wanting his kids back, being a homeless dad, and I believe he appeared on “Arrested Development.” Now, he can add “Sylvester Stallone‘s co-star in Headshot” to his list of accomplishments. The movie, which, excitingly enough, will be directed by action auteur Walter Hill, who’s also rewriting the script. Here’s what Jane had to say about it:

“He’s a hitman, I’m a cop, and we’re just opposite in every f*cking way, and we need each other to get this job done. And of course I’m like, ‘As soon as this job’s over, I’m going to take you to jail, you know, you’re a killer.”

Geez, calm down, Tom Jane. Anyway, this sounds pretty cool, especially with Walter Hill behind the camera. It might turn out to be pretty good, even if Jane is just doing it for his kids. (Arrow in the Head)

Sundance Review: I Melt With You http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-review/sundance-review-i-melt-with-you/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/movies/movie-review/sundance-review-i-melt-with-you/#comments Tue, 25 Jan 2011 22:01:48 +0000 Fred Topel http://www.screenjunkies.com/?p=22237 Exactly the kind of indie movie I was worried about seeing at Sundance. 46 people walked out during the press and industry screening.

I Melt With You is exactly the kind of indie movie I was worried about seeing at Sundance. 46 people walked out during the press and industry screening. I figured after about 80 minutes, whoever stayed was in it until the end but no, a mass exodus around 90 minutes in doubled my count into the 40s. Numbers 45 and 46 left only minutes from the end, they just couldn’t bear to stick it out.

It’s not so much that the film is offensive. It’s just repulsive. Richard (Thomas Jane), Ron (Jeremy Piven), Jonathan (Rob Lowe) and Tim (Christian McKay) get together for their annual week-long cocaine and pharmaceutical binge (Jonathan’s a doctor). They only do this once a year, so they go all out. Maybe if they fixed the other 358 days of the year, they wouldn’t need to act out for seven.

The style introduces itself right away with throbbing beats muting out the scenes introducing each character. Text cards make a lot of statements, mostly beginning with “I Am…” By the end of the film, director Mark Pellington is cutting in footage of the Challenger explosion. Forget tasteless. That’s just nonsense.

The foursome’s behavior is repulsive, especially Richard jumping on the furniture. The guys slam dance. Honestly, I outgrew that in sixth grade. Worst is how the film celebrates this. It’s not a stark portrayal of how adults go bad. It’s portrayed as their reward for putting up with life all year. Basic therapy or spirituality would say if you need to drown out your painful thoughts, you need to work on better thoughts.

Of course they’re just numbing the pain. Each character eventually reveals what they’re really hiding from. Tim actually tries to get through to the other three, why Richard sleeps around, why Jonathan lost his family to a new man, why Ron got in trouble with the SEC. The characters, especially Ron and Richard, are all self-righteously confident that they know how bad things get when you grow up. A young bartender (Arielle Kebbel) has their number, but that’s the only brief voice of reason.

While Tim works out his own tragedy, he has a three way with Raven (Sasha Grey) and another man. While Tim’s crying in between them, Raven talks about helping him find nirvana. Come on! This is not a dig against Grey, I believe she could be spiritual and wise, but the movie is not. It all leads up to some vague talk about a promise the guys all made as seniors.

Oh, also Officer Boyde (Carla Gugino) starts noticing they keep getting into trouble. The film cuts away to Boyde randomly discussing relationships with her friend Katie (Melora Walters). Katie is never seen again, but she gives Boyde a chance to unload her theories on men.

It’s not a matter of filmmaking incompetence. This is all on purpose. They meant to make it exactly this way. The one positive I can say is the acting is good. I really believed Thomas Jane, Jeremy Piven, Rob Lowe and Christian McKay were high.

Thomas Jane Invites Himself To Join Cast Of ‘The Walking Dead’ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/thomas-jane-invites-himself-to-join-cast-of-the-walking-dead/ http://www.screenjunkies.com/tv/tv-news/thomas-jane-invites-himself-to-join-cast-of-the-walking-dead/#comments Wed, 30 Nov -0001 00:00:00 +0000 Move it along. Nothing to see here. With a second season already confirmed before the first has even aired, AMC's "The Walking Dead" is shaping up to be a monster hit. Thomas Jane agrees with that point, and is eager to get the chance to hang around with BFF Frank Darabont and his stiff, rotting corpses. When the series was first announced, I'd thought Jane in the lead would be a no-brainer, if he could work his schedule out. Turns out, that was the plan back when the series was expected to go to HBO. When it ended up going to AMC, his inclusion fell through. Now, he may get the chance to bash in some zombie skulls afterall. "That show is going to be a a big f*cking hit. I've seen it and is fan-f*cking-tastic. I'm going to come on and do a guest thing. Maybe play a bad guy. I'm not going to be a zombie. That's too much make up." Jane is polarizing for a lot of people, but I think he'd be a great addition to the cast. As long as he's not expected to do any crying scenes. (NBC Washington)

Suddenly, the project sounds a lot more interesting with the addition of Sasha Grey. The porn star has enjoyed a career reinvention recently and is building up an impressive resume by picking up roles that don't require her to spit on her hand. I Melt With You stars non-porn actors Thomas Jane, Jeremy Piven, and Rob Lowe as friends who feel empty inside and decide to resurrect a pact from their college days. Grey will play "a free spirit who helps one of the men realize that nirvana can only be achieved by death." And deep-throating. Tons and tons of deep-throating. (THR)
