Give 'Em Hell Malone

Now there's a manly title. This film is starting to gather some buzz. Why? Well, it's directed by Russell Mulcahy. You might remember him from a movie called Highlander. It also stars Thomas Jane and Ving Rhames. It's an old skool Noir beat 'em up and Mulcahy's no-nonsense (and yes, some might say low budget) style is perfect for this type of film. The teaser trailer was released a few months back, but you can definitely see that Mulcahy understands the genre and how to play it with in a contemporary context.

Hell, I'm in on this movie because of the amount of slammed muscle cars on display. It's got all the right archetypes: baddass hired gun (Jane), a mysterious and sexy woman, an underworld boss, his lieutenants (one being Rhames), and an object of desire everyone is after and the source of everyone's trouble. Do you need anymore? Here's the official logline from the production company, Hannibal Pictures:
Thomas Jane as the title character and Ving Rhames as his rival, "Boulder." Malone, tough private eye, takes a job retrieving a case containing a mysterious secret. Bullets, fists, and blood fly as he fights through an army of thugs to protect the secret.
And yeah, people are shooting revolvers--so far not an automatic spray machine in sight! The release date is April 1st. Look for it in your local listings.
