If you can go out of your way to see Jeremy Saulnier's incredible revenge thriller Blue Ruin, please do. It's suspenseful, thoroughly enjoyable, and contains a masterful breakthrough performance from Macon Blair. Then after you watch the indie flick, you can get excited to see his next film with the similarly colorful title of Green Room. Could we be looking at a thematic trilogy in the works? It's not out of the realm of possibility as the new thriller follows a punk rock band who find themselves trapped in a secluded venue after stumbling upon an act of violence, fighting for their lives against a gang of white power skinheads.

Knowing how chillingly and spectacularly Saulier handled violence in his first film, this is bound to be something great. Thankfully, Variety reports Broad Green Pictures has come on board to produce and finance the film with production beginning in September. That likely means he won't make the deadline for Sundance, but it could end up at the Cannes Film Festival where Blue Ruin premiered in the Directors Fortnight section. No matter what, we'll be excited to see how Saulnier continues his career and hope he can make an even bigger name for himself as a filmmaker. Sound good?

    I really want to check out BLUE RUIN, but probably will have to wait a long time...

    I really wanted to love Blue Ruin, but once the backstory for the revenge was revealed it became less than interesting. Good effort though.

      Agreed.

      They really should have made it his wife and child rather than his parents.
