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.

ok, that's the raw material without post-production, isn't it? my own film "The Big Bite" looks better. it's a short-film neo-noir. maybe someone likes to see it, when the mastering and the additional music is done? if someone is interested, I'll put it on rapidshare/megaupload in january and you can take a look...

Way to self advertise #1 🙂 Jane really does pick some interesting choices. I'm really hoping he ends up in a Jonah Hex movie.

I heard the trailer was cut with only two weeks of footage. Movie's in post now. Can't wait!

What a follow up to The Mutant Chronicles...he must really like staying out of the spotlight (though it was a good film so hopefully this one will be equally interesting).

Wanna-be director? Perhaps, but I still really liked The Shadow, Highlander, and Ricochet.

i have a feeling Roman has been waiting to talk up his film for a while now.

maybe "al" is right, but I am a pround. so, why shouldn't I talk about it. I believe my whole team did a great job, without any money. Maybe in the near future you can take a look by yourself. But I have do a subtitle, or do you speak german?

There should be pictures of Chris Yen as The Mauler. She was the most interesting character and she kicks ass!

Thomas Jane is the Shit man. He is awesome. I always look forward to his movies because they are always different and he always has this interesting way of bringing out the characters he plays. I vote Thomas Jane for the lead in the re-make of Highlander. He'd be awesome as McLeod. Is it just me or does he look kinda like Christopher Lambert??

Thomas Jane "chooses" interesting projects? Thomas Jane takes what he is offered! When you are in the B-list you take whatever there is to take.
