Celebrating the movie roles of Eddie Marsan

Mark Harrison Oct 11, 2016

We salute the film work of one of Britain's very best, and most versatile, film actors: Mr Eddie Marsan...

Eddie Marsan isn't just one of the best British actors working today – he's also one of the busiest, appearing in all kinds of supporting roles in major movies, while also appearing on TV a lot, on both sides of the Atlantic. He was fantastic as the latter lead in BBC One's Jonathan Strange & Mr. Norrell last year and he's also a regular on Showtime's Ray Donovan as Ray's brother Terry, an ex-boxer suffering from Parkinson's disease.

On the big screen though, it's Marsan's versatility that really makes him so watchable. He's had attention grabbing turns in minor roles in blockbusters like Hancock, Mission: Impossible III and Guy Ritchie's Sherlock Holmes films, but he's also at home amongst a big ensemble in more serious fare like Spielberg

Film Review: ‘Mojave’

Film Review: ‘Mojave’
A burnt-out movie star and a violent drifter play a cat-and-mouse game that extends from the desert to the Hollywood Hills in “Mojave,” the second feature by William Monahan (“London Boulevard”), the Oscar-winning screenwriter of “The Departed.” Premise aside, however, the word “thriller” doesn’t apply to this comically affected piece of genre deconstruction, which seeks to re-create the existential drift of David Rabe’s “Hurlyburly” and Cormac McCarthy, but winds up hacking on their secondhand smoke. Pegged to a deeply unappealing performance by Garrett Hedlund, whose scuzzball chic recalls Mickey Rourke in his lean years, it’s the type of movie where two adversaries pause their fight-to-the-death to correct a George Bernard Shaw quote. Following a seven-week VOD run on DirecTV, the pic’s theatrical life stands to be mercifully brief.

“I’ve been famous in one way or another since I was 19,” mopes Tom (Hedlund) in the voiceover,

Review: Mojave

  • JoBlo
  Plot: An acclaimed Hollywood auteur (Garrett Hedlund) retreats to the Mojave desert, but finds himself in a dangerous game of cat-and-mouse with a homicidal drifter (Oscar Isaac). Review: Mojave is a William Monahan movie through-and-through. His second directorial effort after the so-so London Boulevard, Mojave feels like a kind of spiritual sequel to the recent remake of The Gambler that he wrote.... Read More...

Trailer: William Monahan's "Mojave"

William Monahan has mostly made his name as a solid go to scribe, penning scripts for films such as "The Departed," "Kingdom of Heaven," "The Gambler" and "Body of Lies". He has dabbled in directing as well with less luck. "London Boulevard" opened back in 2010 and promptly bombed with critics and at the box-office.

He has now tried again with "Mojave" which premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival to a mixed response. Garrett Hedlund plays a suicidal cashed-up artist facing off against a violent, psychotic loner (Oscar Isaac), whom the artist nearly kills during a roam through the desert.

DirecTV liked the project enough to pick up the film which will be available from tomorrow for its users, ahead of a limited theatrical run January 6th. They've also just released a trailer which you can see below:

Oscar Isaac is a Crazy Stalker in Mojave [Trailer]

For a while now there have been rumblings about Mojave, William Monahan's long awaited follow up London Boulevard, and now we've got a look at the upcoming thriller.

The movie stars Garrett Hedlund as a troubled director who heads into the desert where he bumps into a drifter played by Oscar Isaac. The pair have a tense encounter in the desert before Hedlund returns how to the city only to find himself being stalked by Isaac who has tracked him down and is determined to squeeze himself into the director's life.

It sounds like a pretty standard thriller which is slightly surprising considering Monahan has written and adapted some great material over the years and this being an original screen play, I expected something a little less familiar. That said, both Hedlund [Continued ...]

'Mojave' Trailer Starring Oscar Isaac and Garrett Hedlund

'Mojave' Trailer Starring Oscar Isaac and Garrett Hedlund
Following its debut at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year, A24 Films is getting ready to bring Mojave to theaters nationwide, and to DirecTV subscribers as well. Entertainment Tonight has debuted the first trailer for Mojave, which debuts tomorrow, December 3 on DirecTV, before arriving in theaters January 6, 2016. This thriller is the latest in A24's partnership with DirecTV, where they have debuted movies such as Slow West early on the subscription service before arriving in theaters.

Mojave is a classical, cerebral thriller about a brilliant, near-suicidal artist, Thomas (Garrett Hedlund), who attempts to escape his privileged existence into the desert only to encounter a homicidal, chameleon-like drifter-Jack (Oscar Isaac). Their first encounter at a campfire sets up a nonstop, violent duel of physical and intellectual equals. The game intensifies when Jack, while in murderous pursuit of Thomas, witnesses Thomas' accidental killing of an innocent man he has mistaken for Jack.

Watch: Oscar Isaac vs Garrett Hedlund in First Trailer for 'Mojave'

"Who are you? No one in particular." A24 has debuted the first trailer for William Monahan's new thriller Mojave through Entertainment Tonight; view the full trailer below. Oscar Isaac stars along with Garrett Hedlund in this tale of two drifters who meet in the desert. The cast includes Hayley Magnus, Dania Ramirez, and apparently Mark Wahlberg and Walton Goggins, though there isn't much of them in this. It starts out with one story, twists into something more thrilling halfway through, and becomes badass at the end. I'm not sure if this will actually be any good. "This started in the desert, and it's going to end there." Here's the first official trailer for William Monahan's Mojave, first debuted by Entertainment Tonight: A near-suicidal artist (Garrett Hedlund) escapes to the desert only to encounter his doppelganger-like antagonist, a homicidal drifter (Oscar Isaac). Mojave is both written and directed by veteran screenwriter-turned-filmmaker William Monahan,

Oscar Isaac Hunts Down Garrett Hedlund in First Trailer For ‘Mojave’

The Departed and Kingdom of Heaven screenwriter William Monahan debuted his first directorial effort back in 2010 with London Boulevard starring Colin Farrell and Keira Knightley. While it didn’t make much of a splash, he’s now back with his follow-up, Mojave, starring Garret Hedlund and Oscar Isaac. Following a man trekking into the desert, soon coming to find a doppelganger-like antagonist who takes him into a vortex of criminality and violence, we now have the first trailer ahead of a theatrical release next month by A24.

We said in our review out of Tribeca, “Through exchanging more words in a few moments than they did in all of Inside Llewyn Davis, Garrett Hedlund and Oscar Isaac give a pair of committed lead performances in Mojave, respectively playing a privileged Hollywood icon and a mysterious malevolent force.

'Evel Knievel' Biopic May Reunite Scorsese and 'Departed' Writer

'Evel Knievel' Biopic May Reunite Scorsese and 'Departed' Writer
Back in September, Sony Pictures set up an Untitled Evel Knievel Biopic with Channing Tatum attached to star and Darren Aronofsky eyed to direct. The project fell apart after Darren Aronofsky backed away to direct an untitled indie movie which has Jennifer Lawrence attached to star. Today, Deadline reports that Paramount is moving forward with an adaptation of Sheldon Saltman's book Evel Knievel on Tour, with William Monahan (The Departed) signing on to write the adapted screenplay. The studio hopes to reunite the screenwriter with director Martin Scorsese, but nothing is set in stone at this point.

The 1977 book Evel Knievel on Tour will be used as a resource for this biopic, but it isn't known exactly how faithful this adaptation will be. The book covers Evel Knievel's infamous 1974 attempt to jump the Snake River Canyon in a steam-powered rocket known as the Skycycle X-2, which failed. Author Sheldon

The Devil Inside: A24 Camp out with Monahan’s “Mojave”

Perhaps a no-brainer move considering the toplining acting talent, but nonetheless a head-scratcher acquisitions deal when considering the amount of critical flak it received since its Tribeca Film Fest debut, Deadline reports that A24 have landed Mojave in a sweet seven figure deal. Starring Garrett Hedlund, Oscar Isaac with supporting players in Mark Wahlberg and Louise Bourgoin, William Monahan’s sophomore feature appears to have bitten the dust much like London Boulevard did. This desert dish will likely debut sometime this year.

Gist: The brilliant, near-suicidal artist, Thomas (Garrett) 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.

Worth Noting: This is a second Monahan-Wahlberg outing: the actor previously worked on the Monahan’s penned remake of The Gambler.

First Look: Oscar Isaac & Garrett Hedlund Star in Monahan's 'Mojave'

After scripting thrillers like The Departed, Body of Lies and Edge of Darkness, in addition to making his directorial debut with London Boulevard, screenwriter William Monahan is back behind the camera for his sophomore effort, a new thriller called Mojave. The film was just announced as being part of the line-up at the Tribeca Film Festival next month, and with that news comes the first photos of the film with future Star Wars actor Oscar Isaac and Tron Legacy lead Garrett Hedlund. There's nothing too revealing, but Hedlund is sporting a new look, and the photos give off a pretty gritty, almost western vibe. Look now! Here's the first photos from William Monohan's Mojave (via The Playlist): Mojave is written and directed by William Monahan, director of London Boulevard and Oscar-winning screenwriter of Martin Scorsese's The Departed, Edge of Darkness and Body of Lies.

Top 100 Most Anticipated Foreign Films of 2015: #95. Brian Helgeland’s Legend

Legend

Director: Brian Helgeland // Writer: Brian Helgeland

There was initially a lot of promise for writer turned director Brian Helgeland’s career, his directorial debut was the entertaining 1999 adaptation of the Donald E. Westlake (aka Richard Stark) novel The Hunter, which was titled Payback for his version. Following that up with a pair of Heath Ledger titles, A Knight’s Tale and the doomed The Order, we didn’t see Helgeland get in the director’s seat again until 2013 with 42. He’s sticking with based on true story stuff with this resurrection of the notorious Kray Bros., the subject of an enjoyable Peter Medak film from 1990, The Krays. Here, we have Tom Hardy playing the twin gangsters, one of the few performers that can supersede the shortcomings of Helgeland and co-star Emily Browning to nab a slot on our list (we’re also curious as to the absence of Violet Kray,
