Brawler (2012)

6 December 2012 11:30 AM, PST | Planet Fury | See recent Planet Fury news »

Written and directed by: Chris Sivertson

Featuring: Nathan Grubbs, Marc Senter, Pell James, Michael Bowen, Bryan Batt

Brothers Charlie (Nathan Grubbs) and Bobby (Marc Senter) Fontaine are part of an underground, mob-run fighting competition held on New Orleans riverboats. Charlie, the older, more stable of the two, has a steady job in construction and a serious girlfriend (Pell James). Bobby is a directionless playboy who is involved in several shady odd jobs, many of them mob-related. The siblings are the progeny of a local fighting legend and are respected by their late father’s peers and the old school mobster hierarchy. Though both brothers enjoy a surface celebrity, neither has been able to achieve much beyond a working class existence.

When debtors go after Bobby, his protective brother ends up with a broken leg while defending him. Recovering from his injury, Charlie marries his girlfriend Kat – a timid, unmotivated woman »

‘Brawler’ combines its story elements together into something wonderful and completely original

6 September 2012 9:56 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Brawler

Directed by Chris Sivertson

Written by Chris Sivertson, based on a story by Nathan Grubbs

USA, 2011

“As a kid, I had a record with the story of Cain and Abel on it. I used to play that record all the time – it really creeped me out.” – Chris Sivertson

Brawler is a ferociously original film built on the bones of very old stories – some of the oldest in literary history. It is a part of a new sub-genre of films including Bellflower and Another Earth that are “a complicated dance between what I guess you could call the traditionally more masculine [genre] storytelling and this more feminine, intimate human drama” as Brit Marling, writer and star of Another Earth explains it.

Or to put it another way, all three films are narratives about the most twisted, fucked-up relationships humanly possible, framed in the context of a genre narrative.

Elijah Wood, Brendan Fraser & Many More Tell 'Pawn Shop Chronicles'

5 June 2012 9:02 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

Last year we heard that former Limp Bizkit frontman Fred Durst was looking to continue his low key career behind movie cameras (after directing The Longshots and The Education of Charlie Banks) with a dark comedy called Pawn Shop Chronicles starring Paul Walker. It sounded pretty outlandish following multiple interconnected stories centered around a missing wedding ring which leads to a wild-goose chase involving meth addicts, skinheads and an Elvis impersonator. But the project never came together, and now the film is in the hands of Wayne Kramer (Running Scared, The Cooler) with one huge ensemble cast. Though it doesn't sound like Paul Walker is involved anymore in the report from Deadline, plenty of names have surfaced in his place including Brendan Fraser, Elijah Wood, Matt Dillon, Vincent D'Onofrio, Thomas Jane, Chi McBride, Lukas Haas, Pell James, Kevin Rankin, D.J. Qualls, Michael Cudlitz, Norman Reedus and Ashlee Simpson. That's quite »

Elijah Wood, Matt Dillon, Brendan Fraser and Vincent D’Onofrio Join Pawn Shop Chronicles

4 June 2012 5:16 PM, PDT | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

When last we reported on Running Scared-director Wayne Kramer's Pawn Shop Chronicles, the picture had attached Paul Walker to star with Limp Bizkit's Fred Durst set to direct.  That's old news.  What's current is the casting of Elijah Wood, Matt Dillon, Brendan Fraser and Vincent D'Onofrio in the dark comedy.  The plot seems pretty much the same, which involves a local pawn shop in a small Southern town that is a link between a man searching for his kidnapped wife, two white-supremacist meth addicts and a down-on-his-luck Elvis impersonator.  Production on the Adam Minarovich screenplay is underway in Baton Rouge, Louisiana.  Hit the jump for more casting news on Pawn Shop Chronicles. Casting news for Pawn Shop Chronicles comes via Deadline.  No casting details as to who will be playing which role have been released as of yet.  (Do you think Wood makes a better Elvis or a meth-head? »

Wayne Kramer Assembles Huge Cast for ‘Pawn Shop Chronicles’; Paz Vega A ‘Standby Lover’ for Almodovar

4 June 2012 4:13 PM, PDT | The Film Stage | See recent The Film Stage news »

Wayne Kramer (The Cooler, Running Scared) hit his first big bump, career-wise, with the release of 2009′s Crossing Over — fun fact: Harrison Ford literally does not remember being in that film — but those who liked his prior two are probably willing to let that one go. So, it’s with some optimism that I read he’s assembled a large, impressive cast for Pawn Shop Chronicles, a dark comedy he’s already started directing; Adam Minarovich is behind the screenplay.

The full lineup consists of Elijah Wood, Lukas Haas, Thomas Jane, Matt Dillon, Brendan Fraser, Vincent D’Onofrio, Pell James, Chi McBride, Ashlee Simpson, Kevin Rankin, DJ Qualls, Michael Cudlitz, and Norman Reedus. They’re all starring in a film whose logline brings Running Scared to mind — and I hold that as a good sign — although this comes across as an anthology piece at first glance.
