The new issue of Empire Magazine has a few new photos from upcoming fall/winter films. First up is a photo of John C. Reilly as a vampire in Paul Weitz’s Cirque Du Freak. Based on the first three novels by Darren O’Shaughnessy, Cirque Du Freak tells the story of a 14-year-old boy named Darren Shan (Chris Kelly) who visits a travelling freak show. At the show he meets a mysterious man who turns out to be a vampire, and Darren must leave his normal life and go on the road with the show. Cirque Du Freak currently doesn’t have a U.S. release date, but it is hitting theaters in February 2009 in international territories, so expect it around then. I’m really digging Reilly’s look as a vamp. Click on the image to see the whole thing in full resolution on EmpireOnline.com.
Next is the first official production photo of Matt Damon in Paul Greengrass’ Green Zone. Basically, its the same thing we saw from the set photos a few months back. Based on Rajiv Chandrasekaran book (Imperial Life in the Emerald City: Inside Iraq’s Green Zone), Paul Greengrass’ Green Zone stars Matt Damon as a CIA officer on the hunt for traces of WMDs. Green Zone is scheduled to hit theaters in 2009.
