In Deadfall, Eric Bana and Olivia Wilde are a brother/sister team who heist a casino and then get stuck near the snowy US/Canada border as they try to make their escape. Bana goes his own way as Wilde leverages the interest of a small-town ex-boxer (Charlie Hunnam) who is en route to a holiday feast with his family (Kris Kristofferson and Sissy Spacek).
That cast is probably enough to raise a little interest in the movie, but the first trailer for Deadfall makes it look like a tense little thriller. Read More »

Last time we heard about the film Blackbird, it was called Kin. That was when Eric Bana and Olivia Wilde were cast as “two desperate sibling fugitives (Eric Bana and Olivia Wilde) on the run who subsequently collide with the holiday homecoming of a troubled ex-boxer (Charlie Hunnam).” The film’s name has changed, but that cast remains the same.
Now Kate Mara and Treat Williams have taken roles, playing a father and daughter who factor into the story. Sissy Spacek and Kris Kristofferson are also on board as the parents of Charlie Hunnam’s boxer. That’s a pretty cool parent pairing; in general this is shaping up with quite the strong cast. Stefan Ruzowitzky is directing from a script by Zach Dean, and the film shoots in March in Montreal. [Variety]
