Check Out the First Poster for Chris Weitz's New Film 'A Better Life'
Every father wants more for his son. Our friends at Cinematical have debuted the first official poster for director Chris Weitz's new indie film A Better Life, which you may otherwise know as The Gardener. It's simply a film about a hard-working immigrant who lives in Los Angeles and his efforts to protect his son - unlike Weitz's last two films, The Twilight Saga: New Moon and The Golden Compass. There's no release date yet nor a trailer, but this is a good sign that all of that should coming soon. In addition to this poster (see below) the guys at Cinematical spoke with Weitz about the film and why he decided to direct this next.
A gardener (Demián Bichir) in East Los Angeles struggles to keep his son away from gangs & immigration agents while also traveling across town to perform landscaping work for the city's wealthiest landowners.
A Better Life, formerly known as The Gardener, is directed by filmmaker Chris Weitz, brother of Paul Weitz, who previously directed Down to Earth, About a Boy, The Golden Compass and New Moon. The script was written by Eric Eason (Manito, Journey to the End of the Night) from a story by Roger L. Simon. Summit is bringing A Better Life to theaters, but hasn't set a release date, although we should expect it by the summer.
