Kylie Minogue Also Cast in Bradley Rust Gray's Jack and Diane
There's a film we've been writing about for the last three years, waiting for it to go into production, watching it switch casts endlessly, but that doesn't mean we'll stop reporting on it. It's called Jack and Diane and it has some infamy because, in brief, it's the "lesbian werewolf movie" in the works. When we first reported on it, it had Ellen Page and Olivia Thirlby starring, now it's Juno Temple (Year One, Mr. Nobody) and Riley Keough (The Runaways, Elvis Presley's granddaughter) instead. The NY Post also recently confirmed that singer, actress and all-around hottie Kylie Minogue has also joined the cast as a "heavily tattooed lesbian."
I suppose the good news is that Jack and Diane may finally be going into production, as the IMDb page has been filled with a robust cast list, and the Post even has a quote saying "her fans will be surprised to see her in this role, but her performance is good." So does that mean this has already been shot? Who knows… Jack and Diane is written and directed by Bradley Rust Gray, who's been trying to get this financed and shot for years. It's not horror, it's a drama about a love story between two teenage girls, one of whom occasionally turns into a werewolf as a representation of all-consuming love and sexual desire, or something like that.
To make things even more exciting, the Post's "source" adds that "Kylie does have one love scene where she kisses a girl." And there's the marketing campaign, if this ever gets released at least. Anyway, this is all we've really heard about Jack and Diane recently, but we'll keep you updated on its status and find out if it really has started shooting. Minogue broke her way onto the big screen with movies like Street Fighter, Bio-Dome, Misfit, and Cut, but hasn't appeared in anything since Baz Luhrmann's Moulin Rouge! in 2001. I really don't have much to say about her involvement, but I'm interested to learn more, so let's hope we get updates soon.
Maybe she can sing "a little ditty" about it.
