Films can get financing based on the attachment of a recognizable cast, and when a film’s director has previous credits producing known films, it makes it easier to bring elements together, whether or not the script is any good.
Chris Brinker makes his directorial debut with Bad Country, but he’s got producer credits going back to The Boondock Saints. And so he was able to bring in Boondock co-star Willem Dafoe to star in this cat and mouse story of a cop tracking down a killer. Also in the cast are Matt Dillon, Amy Smart, Tom Berenger, Bill Duke and Neal McDonough, not that any of it will probably matter. The first trailer for the film is pretty painful, but it has Dafoe looking mustachioed and haggard, and it’s worth the investment of a couple minutes just to enjoy his presence. Read More »

After his unceremonious exit from The Walking Dead, Frank Darabont returns to television this year with a whole new project that has nothing to do with the undead — but plenty, still, to do with monsters.
The six-episode TNT series Mob City (formerly titled L.A. Noir and then Lost Angels) chronicles the war between gangsters and cops in ’40s Los Angeles, which gets kicked up to a whole new level once the LAPD forms a specialized mob squad.
Walking Dead alums Jon Bernthal and Jeffrey DeMunn join Darabont on the new project, along with Ed Burns, Neal McDonough, Jeremy Luke, and many more. Watch the first trailer and get more details after the jump.

That new trailer will probably give us a better idea of what to expect. While you wait, check out the new poster below. Read More »
