Jessica Biel in First Trailer for David O. Russell's Long Delayed 'Nailed'

One project directed by David O. Russell years ago that has never seen the light of day is Nailed. The film was shot in 2008, but production was shut down due to money issues before a key scene could be completed. In the two years following, financiers tried to get the project back on track, but in July of 2010, Russell left the film. However, producers have pieced together some form of the project, as they've just now released the trailer for the film, which is now called Accidental Love, a romance that stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Jessica Biel, James Marsden and more. But you'll notice that a "Stephen Greene" is listed as director, which likely is a fake name, since Russell doesn't want to take responsibility for it. Watch?
Here's the first trailer for
David O. Russell's Accidental Love from Millennium Entertainment:
On the resuscitation of this project, Russell previously said (via ComingSoon) that if the film was released, "The circumstances under which the film would now be completed are much different on several fundamental levels than when we embarked several years ago. I, unfortunately, am no longer involved in the project and cannot call it ‘my’ film.” And that explains why "Stephen Greene" is the named director. This one sounds like a disaster that's just trying to recouped some semblance of success and competition in the years since the project was abandoned. Unfortunately, it looks like a wacky disaster.
Accidental Love (formerly Nailed) is directed by David O. Russell (American Hustle, Silver Linings Playbook), but this cut of the film is not approved by the director. The script comes from Kristen Gore (daughter of Al Gore), based on her novel Sammy's Hill and follows Sammy Joyce (Jessica Biel), a socially awkward small-town receptionist who has a nail accidentally shot into her head, eliciting wild sexual urges. The uninsured Joyce goes on a crusade to Washington to fight for the rights of the bizarrely injured and meets an immoral congressman (Jake Gyllenhaal) who takes advantage of her sex drive and capitalizes on her crusade. The film hits VOD first on February 10th and then limited theaters on February 20th.
Jake Gyllenhaal looks like a kid in this movie compared to what he looks like now....

Doesn't really look that great, but I'll check it out. Hope O'Russell can go back and re-edit it.

not really... all they need to do is still use Jessica biel as a waitress who still can't get med insurance because her job now only hires her 36 hours instead of 40 and because of the pay cut, still can't afford the cost of the cheapest bronze plan under obamacare which leaves her in the same category of the 32 million uninsured in america today and bam... same plot points. except that how is Jake G gonna manage the health care. now that sound exciting.

Hollywood needs to crank out a movie about Obamacare....the dream of socialized medicine in the US will be a great fiction piece

well, I might even look into this since, after a long time, Jessica Biel looks fun and there is something sexy in her craziness ...
