A sequel to Raging Bull was first discussed in 2006. Four and a half years go, shooting began under the title Raging Bull II, which didn’t sit well with MGM, the studio behind Martin Scorsese‘s classic film. Director Martin Guigui co-wrote the unofficial sequel’s script with Rustam Branaman based on the book “Raging Bull II,” by Chris Anderson, Sharon McGehee, and Jake LaMotta. MGM ultimately filed a lawsuit, and the title got changed to LaMotta’s nickname, The Bronx Bull. After all these years of waiting, the project is finally coming out.

Director's Cut trailer

With Slamdance and Sundance happening concurrently, Park City is going to be the place to be for fans of indie cinema for the next two weeks. One of the most intriguing titles set to debut at the former is Director’s CutAdam Rifkin‘s very meta horror movie starring Penn Jillette.

A crowdsourced movie about a crowdsourced movie gone awry, Director’s Cut centers on Herbert Blount (Jillette), an unhinged cineaste who decides to take over control of a film project he helped fund. He kidnaps the lead actress (Missi Pyle) and forces her to act out the scenes he’s written, while her co-stars (Harry Hamlin and Hayes MacArthur) wonder about her disappearance. The entire film takes the form of a director’s cut of Blout’s finished masterpiece. Like I said, it’s very meta. Watch the Director’s Cut trailer after the jump.  Read More »
