The Nines--Limited Release August 31st

Not much has been said about this film, which is a complete shame. Since I haven't seen it yet, I just want you to take a trip over to the films website. :)

It's written and directed by John August ( Screenwriter of the films Go and Big Fish), and stars Ryan Reynolds (Blade: Trinity, Smoking Aces), Hope Davis (American Splendor, Proof, and recently on the canceled ABC show Six Degrees and February 08 release of Charlie Bartlett), Melissa McCarthy (Sookie St. James on Gilmore Girls {*sigh* RIP}), and Elle Fanning (most recently in Babel, younger sister of Dakota Fanning, and an in demand actress in her own right).

The synopsis: A troubled actor, a television show runner, and an acclaimed videogame designer find their lives intertwining in mysterious and unsettling ways.

Hmm...I think I'll be in line when the film comes out next Friday.


The Nines Film Website

John August
Note: John's site is QUITE informative and a very useful resource for any aspiring or working screenwriter, especially his post regarding the subject of Race and Screenwriting

Check it out. This could either be a classic, or a very experimental blunder. But, with the talent behind and in front of the camera, I'm thinking the former.

See you in line 31 August 2007.

The Nines will be playing at oh-so trendy Landmark Sunshine Cinemas in the even more trendy Lower East Side (insert bountiful moments of sarcasm here! :))
