First Look: Nic Cage & Tye Sheridan in DGG's Other New Film 'Joe'
How many films does he have ready?! Though he started out with indies, director David Gordon Green ventured into Hollywood comedy for a few years, but has returned to the indie scene in a big way this year. His first new film, Prince Avalanche, just premiered at the Sundance Film Festival. Apparently he has yet another indie, this one titled Joe, shot and ready that's being sold at the Berlin Film Festival this month. Worldview Entertainment has released a first look at the film, starring Nicolas Cage and Tye Sheridan (Tree of Life, Mud) described as a "gritty, southern drama" based on Larry Brown's novel of the same title.
Here's the first look photo in full of DGG's Joe, starring Nic Cage and Tye Sheridan. Thanks to The Playlist.
In the dirty unruly world of small-town Texas, ex-convict Joe Ransom (Cage) has tried to put his dark past behind him and to live a simple life. He works for a lumber company by day, drinks by night. But when 15-year-old Gary (Sheridan) - a kid trying to support his family - comes to town, desperate for work, Joe has found a way to atone for his sins - to finally be someone’s hero. As Joe tries to protect Gary, the pair will take the twisting road to redemption in the hope for a better life in this tough, hard-hitting but incredibly moving story. Worldview is selling this at Berlin. Some are predicting it might premiere at SXSW in March, but I'm not sure. I'm just curious to see this and Prince Avalanche, as I'm actually a fan of DGG's directing.
