This weekend you can check out Milla Jovovich kicking asses in Resident Evil: Retribution, but how would you like to see her team up with Jean Grey instead? Well, you can, though it might not be exactly as you think. Famke Janssen is making her directorial debut with Bringing Up Bobby, a comedic drama starring Jovovich and Bill Pullman.The story follows Olive, a nomadic European con-artist, and her 10-year-old American-born son, Bobby (Spencer List), as they struggle to live in Oklahoma and deal with the trials and tribulations of living in a broken family, not to mention her impending reptuation as a criminal catching up with her. Honestly, it looks kind of messy with a tone that's all over the place. Watch?
Here's the first trailer for Famke Janssen's Bringing Up Bobby from YouTube:
In an effort to escape her murky past and build a better future, Olive (Milla Jovovich), a nomadic European con-artist, and her 10-year-old American-born son, Bobby (Spencer List), find themselves living in Oklahoma with a lot of struggle. Olive “provides” for Bobby in the only way she knows how, but things take a turn for the worse after Bobby’s unfortunate “run-in” with the local and wealthy businessman Kent (Bill Pullman), and Olive’s criminal past finally catches up with her, forcing her to make the toughest judgment of all. Famke Janssen makes her directing debut with the film hitting limited theaters on September 28th.

This film was shown out of competition at last year's Nederlands Film Festival, and got some pretty bad reviews.
