Peter recently ran the pretty cool-looking poster for Cat Run in Page 2. At the time we knew little about the film, which stars Paz Vega as a call girl on the run because a whole bunch of people want a hard drive that is in her possession.

John Stockwell is a director who has consistently disappointed me throughout his career. Stockwell showed promise with his 2001 film Crazy/Beautiful, starring Kirsten Dunst and Jay Hernandez, but has since made a series of clunkers: Blue Crush, Into the Blue and Turistas.
His last film, Middle of Nowhere, impressed me a bit when I saw it at the 2008 Toronto International Film Festival. I called it a “a multi-layered coming of age story with authentic performances” but the movie was sent direct to dvd (it’s definitely not something that would’ve played multiplexes).
His next film is an R-rated action comedy titled Roadkill. It was filmed in 2009 and does not yet have a release date/distributor. /Film read Max S sent me a plot synopsis, which you can read now after the jump.
