Thomas Jane in Devil's Commandos

Thomas Jane has been staying quite busy after retiring from the Punisher, with upcoming roles in The Mutant Chronicles and Give 'Em Hell Malone as well as a few others. He's also directing and starring in a 3D horror movie called The Dark Country, that we haven't really mentioned much before. Apparently everything went well with Dark Country, because he's already lined up his follow-up, another 3D horror project, this one called Devil's Commandos. It's written by screenwriter Todd Farmer (Jason X, The Messengers, My Bloody Valentine 3-D) and Punisher comic book illustrator Tim Bradstreet.

Devil's CommandosFarmer dropped by ShockTillYouDrop over the weekend and gave them a few more details on the film as well as a short plot synopsis and the badass poster that you see to the right. "Devil's Commandos is a Tim Bradstreet story," he told them. "Turns out, not only can Timmy draw, his noodle churns out some rockin' ideas. Who knew? But I told him if I wrote the thing he wouldn't get any credit. He'd end up as a footnote somewhere. So I suggested he write it with me." As for what it's all about: "Devil's Commandos is about a WWII commando unit sent on a rescue mission. Pretty straight forward. Except for the part where hell opens up and they have to fight Satan's army."

This actually sounds like a badass idea and I'm especially digging that it came from Farmer and Bradstreet. I've already heard some pretty damn good things about The Dark Country, which I'm assuming was sort of Jane's proving grounds for his directing abilities and use of 3D in horror. Although I'm not the biggest fan of 3D, for some odd reason I'm really interested in checking out The Dark Country. I don't think it's as gimmicky as something like My Bloody Valentine 3-D and is more about the story, which is why I'm curious. With Devil's Commandos on his plate after he finishes shooting "Hung" for HBO, I'm getting impatient waiting for some footage from Dark Country to see if Jane is actually good at directing or not.
