First Look: Thomas Jane in Noir Drama Give 'Em Hell Malone
Another first look debut to round out the holiday weekend. Wanna-be director Russell Mulcahy has a low budget noir crime drama called Give 'Em Hell Malone that's currently in post-production. Thomas Jane stars as Malone, a tough as nails private investigator who squares off with gangsters and thugs to protect a valuable secret. "Malone goes through hell to protect the information but he dishes some hell as well." It seems good, and the trailer didn't look half bad, so I thought we'd feature these photos today as an introduction to the film. Thomas Jane chooses interesting projects and this is no doubt one of the oddest.
Give 'Em Hell Malone is directed by Russell Mulcahy, of Highlander and Resident Evil: Extinction, and is written by Mark Hosack, of Hinterland and Pale Blue Moon. In addition to Thomas Jane and Elsa Pataky, Ving Rhames, Doug Hutchison, and French Stewart also appear. We don't know much about its release, although it looks like William Morris Independent is distributing it in the US. The release date is currently set for April 1st, 2009, but we're not sure if it will play at any film festivals or elsewhere before then.
