Top 200 Most Anticipated Films for 2014: #178. William Monahan’s Mojave

5 February 2014 6:30 AM, PST | ioncinema | See recent ioncinema news »


Director: William Monahan

Writer: William Monahan

Producers: Aaron L. Ginsburg, William Green, Justine Suzanne Jones, William Monahan

U.S. Distributor: Rights Available

Cast: Oscar Isaac, Garrett Hedlund, Louise Bourgoin

While screenwriter William Monahan’s directorial debut, London Boulevard (2010) suffered from a surprising amount of cliché, we’re excited to see what he’s concocted with his sophomore feature, which sounds like it has all the makings of a delicious noir and with a catchy cast to boot.

Gist: The brilliant, near-suicidal artist, Thomas (Garrett) who attempts to escape his privileged existence into the desert only to encounter a homicidal, chameleon-like drifter—Jack (Isaac). Their first encounter at a campfire sets up a nonstop, violent duel of physical and intellectual equals.

Release Date: In its search for a distributor, we’re expecting a festival premiere, though perhaps somewhere in the fall.
