Odette Yustman Talks Tarot Card Comedy Rogue's Gallery
We will always stop to write about Odette Yustman, the beauty from Cloverfield who next stars in The Unborn. Yustman talked to ComingSoon about a new independent project she's set to star in, "a small, dry-wit, dark comedy about a group of assassins, they're all based on Tarot card names." The film is titled Rogue's Gallery and also stars Adam Scott, Ving Rhames, Ellen Barkin, Maggie Q, and comedians Jeffrey Tambor, Zach Galifianakis and Rob Corddry. "It's funny in that way that it's kind've gory, but hilarious in the way the situations come about because I get to work with great comedic actors," Yustman explains.
Yustman's character in the film is named Temperence, "and each of us have different functions and things we have to do," she explains. "We're hired by the government, we're this underground society, and we're basically sent to kill whoever we have to kill. And one day this new hire comes in and we wind up having to kill each other." I hate to make the comparison, but it sounds a bit like Wanted, only more comical and with different characters. So why did she take on this role? "I got to do some fight training and some of my own stunts. That was my dream role. I get to kick ass, be funny, kill people with a paper cutter blade."
In addition to the fact that Yustman is gorgeous, Rogue's Gallery actually sounds like a very cool film. The script was written by two newcomers, Brian Watanabe and Abe Levy, and it's being directed by another first-timer, Fouad Mikati. This is one of Darko Entertainment's upcoming features, although I'm not sure when we'll see it. I'm guessing it might premiere at a film festival sometime in 2009. I'm also curious whether the comedy and supernatural elements of this mesh well together. Even if they don't and this turns out bad, we'll at least have another film with Odette Yustman, which is always a damn good thing.

Zach Galifianakis is on of my favorite comedians and a long time ago i faced facts and accepted that nobody would put him in any movie because his style of comedy doesn't really fit in with anything being made, but i guess there's still hope. The concept sounds pretty decent if it's done well.

I think it sounds like if Get Smart and Wanted had a baby together that this is the film that would pop out.

Janika, I agree with you Odette Yustman or Megan Fox lok like twin sisters and both can play Wonder Woman. I want Odette to work out alot build up her muscles because, Wonder Woman is built like a female Superman. Odette looks naturally beautiful and sexy and her modeling figure will get her the role as Wonder Woman aka Princess Diana of the Amazons. I think Hayden Panettiere should go for the Kara/Zorel Supergirl role her bodacious figure and sexy face, eyes and lips will get her the Girl Of Steel role.
