Anything that puts John Hawkes in more movies is Ok by me. And the great, until recently underrated actor has just bagged two new roles, so here's a pair of films to put on your watch list. First up is Chronicle, about which we've got little info. Looks like Justin Long will appear alongside Mr. Hawkes and Ryan Philippe, with possible additions that include Mickey Rourke, Helena Bonham Carter, Kate Mara, Danny Masterson and Vincent D’Onofrio. Jay Alaimo directs, and the plot reportedly  features "two childhood friends reunite to launch the biggest marijuana-dealing operation in New York City." As long as one of those friends is John Hawkes, we're in good shape. [The Playlist ] After the break, info about The Playroom, in which the actor reunites with his Deadwood co-star Molly Parker. Between these two films, The Playroom is the one I'm really psyched for. Because I like Molly Parker just »

The report describes Chronicle‘s plot as being “about two childhood friends who reunite to launch the biggest marijuana dealership in New York City.”
Filming dates for the project are unknown at this point, and seeing as how Chlorine is still in post-production, a release before the end of 2011 appears to be highly unlikely. Perhaps if Hawkes loses out on a nomination for Winter’s Bone, Chronicle could be another chance »

There’s not a lot of information yet, but a report about Justin Long’s new production company revealed that he would be starring in a new film, “Chronicle,” alongside John Hawkes and Ryan Philippe. According to the Gramery Park Pictures website, Mickey Rourke, Helena Bonham Carter, Kate Mara, Danny Masterson and Vincent D'Onofrio were in discussions to join the cast as of last month, but no word if they will be signing on or have simply moved on (our guess is probably the latter).
