Cannes: Peter Brant Bets Well on Tommy Lee Jones’ ‘Homesman’ (Exclusive)

13 May 2014 1:21 PM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

To finance “The Homesman,” a 1850s Western drama playing in competition at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, Tommy Lee Jones turned to some of his closest friends.

Jones sent his old polo-playing comrade Peter Brant a copy of the script for the movie that he wanted to direct and star in. Brant, a U.S. businessman who owns Interview Magazine and has financed five other films, including 1977’s “Andy Warhol’s Bad,” 1996’s “Basquiat” and 2000’s “Pollock,” was immediately impressed by the story of a claim jumper who embarks on a journey with three mentally unstable women.

“I thought it was an interesting film,” says Brant, who is a fan of Jones’ directorial debut, 2005’s “The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada,” which also premiered at Cannes. “I just know he’s a very serious and sophisticated man. I could see he had a real passion for the subject matter. »

Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #177. Tommy Lee Jones’ The Homesman

5 February 2014 6:45 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »

The Homesman

Director: Tommy Lee Jones

Writers: Kieran Fitzgerald, Tommy Lee Jones, Wesley A. Oliver

Producers: Luc Besson, Peter Brant, Michael Fitzgerald, Tommy Lee Jones

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available

Cast: Tommy Lee Jones, Hilary Swank, Grace Gummer, Miranda Otto, Sonja Richter, David Dencik, John Lithgow, Tim Blake Nelson, James Spader, William Fichtner

If we technically don’t include his two made for television films, this would be Tommy Lee Jones’ second, much anticipated outing — almost a decade since he delivered the exquisite The Three Burials of Melquiades Estrada, a thinking man’s slow-burner Western where hardened faces (both genders) converge with justice served piping hot. Jones takes on multiple duties once again for The Homesman and his cinemtagrpaher happens to be the great Rodrigo Prieto.

Gist: Based on Glendon Swarthout’s novel, this is about a claim jumper and a pioneer woman team up to escort three insane women from Nebraska to Iowa. »
