There's a lot of films being sold and hyped at the Berlin Film Market during the Berlin Film Festival, and a lot of them we'll never hear of again, so we're simply not talking about them. But one such film that we're interested in is another project from director David Gordon Green (Prince Avalanche, Pineapple Express). This time, Green has rounded up Al Pacino for Manglehorn, and we have the first photo from the film. In the film, Pacino plays the title character, an aging guy in a small town who is unmasked as having a very dark past. Maybe Green can break the terrible streak of bad films Pacino has made lately.
Here's the first photo from David Gordon Green's Manglehorn from Worldview Entertainment:
Manglehorn is directed by David Gordon Green and written by newcomer Paul Logan. AJ Manglehorn (Al Pacino) is an aging, ordinary guy in a small town. He nurses his sick cat, squeezes out a conversation with the local bank teller every Friday, and eats at the same place every day. But there is more to Manglehorn than meets the eye: he’s an ex-con who, 40 years ago, gave up the woman of his dreams for a big ‘job’. He now obsesses daily over the choices he made. After a dramatic effort to start over, Manglehorn faces a terrifying moment and is unmasked as a guy with a very, very dark past. Holly Hunter, Harmony Korine, and Chris Messina also star in the film Worldview Entertainment is selling at the Berlin Film Market now.
