It was announced yesterday by various media outlets that Albert Brooks, David Oyelowo, Alfred Molina and Catalina Sandino Moreno all joined Jessica and Oscar Isaac in ‘A Most Violent Year’. Deadline broke the story of Brooks casting and is reporting that he will play “Isaacs’ character’s attorney”. It has not yet been announced who Sandino Moreno, Molina and Oyelowo will portray but their casting was first reported by The Wrap and THR.
Filmmaker J.C. Chandor begins shooting the thriller on Wednesday. A week later, Glen Basner’s FilmNation will introduce the high-profile indie project to foreign buyers for the first time at Berlin’s European Film Market.
A24 Films has already secured U.S. rights, and is planning to release the movie this fall or winter, positioning it for a potential awards run.
Participant and Image Nation Abu Dhabi are co-financing the film, with Before the Door’s Neal Dodson and Washington Square Films’ Anna Gerb producing alongside Chandor (Dodson and Gerb also produced Chandor’s All Is Lost and Margin Call). Executive producers include Participant’s Jeff Skoll and Jonathan King, Joshua Blum, Kerry Orent and Basner.
Coming into Sundance, many expected big things for upstart distribution company A24, and the label hasn’t disappointed. A24 is closing the biggest deal so far for the company, acquiring domestic distribution rights from Participant Media to A Most Violent Year, the drama written and directed by All Is Lost and Margin Call helmer J.C. Chandor. The film stars Inside Llewyn Davis‘s Oscar Isaac and Zero Dark Thirty‘s Jessica Chastain. I’m told the plan is to release the film wide, late this year, giving A24 a likely horse in the next Oscar race. It starts shooting shortly. I’m told it will be 1200 screens, minimum.
A Most Violent Year, which is co-financed by Participant and Image Nation Abu Dhabi, takes place in New York in 1981, a year in which the city had one of its highest tallies of violent crime. An immigrant and his family are trying to grow a business and their ambition collides with the crime element. Before The Door’s Neal Dodson and Washington Square Films’ Anna Gerb are producing with Chandor, and they all did All Is Lost and Margin Call together. Participant’s Jeff Skoll are involved in producing capacities as well.
Still with our planned updates, I finished up the web page for Journeyman, one of the many television shows Jessica did right after leaving Juilliard School back in 2007. On this episode Jessica beautifully plays Tanna Bloom, in three different periods in her life with three different personas.
You can find some information regarding the episode she guest starred, and also a clip containing all her scenes. The screencaptures was up a while ago, and the page will be updated if more information/images surfaces.
In a curious note, she was on set of Journeyman when received the call to met Terrence Malick.
I added 12 clips and a trailer of Jessica big debut film, Jolene. Click on the thumbnails below to see the videos, or check the film page for more information.
