David Mamet returning to movies with ‘Speed-the-Plow’ film adaptation

7 April 2015 9:39 AM, PDT | SoundOnSight | See recent SoundOnSight news »

Hollywood is no stranger to smart, cynical, profane, edgy dialogue and writing in their modern dramas and comedies, but for a few years they’ve been without the style’s eminent champion, David Mamet. His last film was the HBO Movie Phil Spector, preceded by the 2008 Mma fighting drama Redbelt.

Deadline reported Monday that Mamet is making his way back to the big screen via an adaptation of his play Speed-the-Plow, in which Mamet himself will adapt the stage production.

Speed-the-Plow is a movie-biz satire in which two Hollywood producers angle to get a big movie star to make a film under their studio banner, despite him being under contract with another. The two also make a bet to see who can first seduce and bed a young Hollywood upstart, who has her own motives to deceive the producers. It involves a theme that Mamet would later revisit in Wag the Dog »
