First Official Photos from Thomas Jane's Dark Country

Ex-Frank Castle, actor Thomas Jane, has been directing a 3D horror film called Dark Country for the last year or so. We actually haven't ever written about this, even though I remember following it closely. My guess is that Jane and company have been hard at work getting this ready for its 3-D presentation. However, thanks to our friends at Quiet Earth, we finally have some official photos from the film, mainly featuring Jane's character's classic car, but they are officially our very first look. Apparently there are a lot of interesting supernatural elements to this, so as basic as these photos look, expect to see more in theaters.

Dark Country is written by Tab Murphy (The Hunchback of Notre Dame, Tarzan) and directed by Thomas Jane. Starring Thomas Jane, Ron Perlman, and Lauren German, the story follows a couple en route from Las Vegas that are forced to deal with a body out in the desert making their honeymoon one hellish ride. Apparently Jane has promised that it'll "remain true to the stylistic choices of film noir, while delivering an immersive reality and visceral experience that only the next generation of 3D cinematography could provide." Sounds like it should be dark and fun, and I'm looking forward to it, whenever Sony releases it.

This sounds promising, and the pictures do look good. I also have to say I'm a big fan of Thomas Jane, and I'm looking forward to his directorial debut. But one thing: What is up with the 3D Hype? My opinion is that a good movie doesn't need the 3D effect to bring the ''full experience'' to the viewers.

What's better Than Film Noir? Answer: NOTHING. And With Thomas Jane at the helm and the pictures above this film looks promising.

Thomas Jane you say? Meh. I do love a good horror movie but the 3-D is also meh.

Thomas Jane in the director's seat and the lead role that's just enough for me.

Only one nit-pick why is everything going 3-D these days, I don't quite understand the fascination of images coming out at the person...I mean seriously it isn't that great! There I said my peace.

I'm down i love Thomas Jane. and obviously 3D is the next step in entertainment people. You're all just going to have to get used to it because in 20 years we are going to be remembering when movies where flat!
