The trailer for Geoffrey Fletcher's upcoming movie "Violet & Daisy" has arrived, and it definitely is not what we were expecting. The flick stars Saoirse Ronan and Alexis Bledel as two teenage assassins who love their line of work but are drawn into a hit they don't quite understand and quickly get in over their heads. It seems like a simple enough premise, but the trailer reveals that the movie could actually be much more.
First of all, it's a whole lot funnier than the story would lead one to believe. There's a certain tongue-in-cheek quality to the trailer that is intriguing, but it's unclear if that's indicative of the movie as a whole or just the marketing. Hopefully it's the latter, as one of the main plot points in "Violet & Daisy" is that the girls take on a hit so they can have enough money to buy dresses.

Violet & Daisy - Trailer

Violet & Daisy is the directorial debut of Geoffrey Fletcher, screenwriter of Precious, and I remember when it play the Toronto Film Festival in 2011 on the very last day of the fest once pretty much everyone had already left town. As a result, virtually no one saw it and no one really talked about it. If that doesn't speak to its quality then I don't know what does. Flash forward almost two years later and Cinedigm Entertainment has picked it up and apparently will release it in theaters this June, though a specified date hasn't been announced and I doubt it will be in too many theaters. The film features Saoirse Ronan and Alexis Bledel in the title roles as two teenage assassins who accept what they think will be a quick-and-easy job, until an unexpected target throws them off their plan. James Gandolfini, Danny Trejo and Cody Horn co-star. Today »

A new trailer for Academy Award-winning writer Geoffrey Fletcher’s (Precious) first directing venture Violet & Daisy has been released. The film centers on two young female assassins, played by Saiorse Ronan (Atonement) and Alexis Bledel (Gilmore Girls), who set out for what they think will be a quick and easy hit, but turns into something much more complicated when their target throws a wrench in the works. The marketing and posters for the film thus far have seemed to be going for that pulpy and modern pop take on young women in today’s society, like Spring Breakers, but the trailer gives off a tone that seems a bit muddled. It has elements of quirky comedy and a more serious and dire consequences drama, but not a clear vision that can be derived just from the trailer.

The Oscar-winning director of "Traffic" has declared that "Side Effects" is his theatrical swan song -- he'll no longer direct films, though he will likely direct theater and television. (His next movie, the Liberace bio-pic "Behind the Candelabra" starring Michael Douglas and Matt Damon, will air on HBO this year.) Whether or not Soderbergh's "retirement" turns out to be a Stephen King-style sabbatical, or a Gene Hackman-style actual retirement probably won't be answered anytime soon.
So, unfortunately, we have to deal with what's on screen in "Side Effects" -- a mostly unsatisfying thriller that strenuously attempts to uncover something interesting in a mix of pharmaceutical culture commentary, stylish filmmaking and creakily conventional twists.
'Magic Mike' and 'End of Watch' hottie Cody Horn (below) is the latest to join the cast of the new James Wan produced haunted house thriller. Still without an official title but what we'll continue to refer to as 'House of Horror' for the time being the project is due to commence shooting in Baton Rouge, La this week. Hopefully that'll also mean that a final decision on the title will be happening soon. Horn, who is set to play a ghost hunter in the flick, will be joining the already cast Frank Grillo ('Zero Dark Thirty'), Maria Bello ('The Dark') and Scott Mechlowicz ('Eurotrip'). »
Dustin Milligan will star in Dimension's untitled thriller being produced by "Saw" director James Wan, an individual with knowledge of the deal told TheWrap and a spokesperson for Dimension owner The Weinstein Company then confirmed.

Max La Bella wrote the script, which follows a police officer (Grillo) and a psychologist (Bello) investigating the mysterious deaths of five people on a ghost-hunting excursion. One person survived, prompting further »

Cody Horn (Magic Mike, Rescue Me, End Of Watch) has joined Maria Bello and Frank Grillo in Dimension Films upcoming, still-untitled James Wan thriller. The film will be directed by Will Canon (Brotherhood) and comes from a script by Max La Bella and James Wan (Saw), who will also be producing the movie.
The film “centers on the aftermath of a horrific massacre: five college students, brutally murdered inside a decrepit, abandoned home. Fresh on the scene, detective Mark Lewis and the police department’s psychologist, Dr. Elizabeth Klein (Bello), question one of the few survivors who explains they were amateur ghost-hunters, seeking out paranormal phenomenon at the abandoned house, believed to be haunted. But what started out as a harmless activity turned into something truly terrifying, and the suspect claims the responsibility doesn’t lie with any of the inhabitants, but with the house itself.”

1.) Denzel Washington is targeting a return to the director's chair with an adaptation of the August Wilson stage play Fences. He starred in the production's 12-week Broadway run back in 2010, alongside Viola Davis, as the story follows a trash collector from Pittsburgh who is still haunted by his squandered professional baseball career. The film would mark Washington's third directorial effort after Antwone Fisher and The Great Debaters. While Washington would likely also star in the film version, there's no word yet on he's looking for Davis to reprise her role as well. Empire 2.) Cody Horn (Magic Mike, End of Watch) has joined Maria Bello and Frank Grillo in an untitled ghost story from producer James Wan (Saw, Insidious).
