For an early review, check out what L.A. Times had to say.
The trailer and poster for Come and Find Me are finally here. The movie is out on November 11.
Elsewhere, Deadline posted a couple of casting updates for Monsters of God today. Lauren Ambrose has been cast as the co-lead and Kwame Patterson is joining as a regular.
Ambrose, the two-time Emmy nominee for Six Feet Under, will play Cynthia Lancaster, wife to Dillahunt’s Col. “Terrible” Bill Lancaster, who despite the peace between the Comanche and locals sets sets out on a quest to kill off every single member of the tribe, bringing wild chaos to the town of Slater. Cynthia, meanwhile, will let no one get in the way of her obsessive quest to institute her wildly feminist ideals. Cultured, strategic and ferociously ambitious, she’ll go to great lengths to show that she is not defined by her role as Bill’s wife. She has an agenda that often conflicts with her husband and has the potential to radically redefine the frontier culture they live inside. — Deadline
Patterson will play Oatis. He and his family are freed slaves, but they experience limited and conditional independence working for Lancaster as personal servants. Oatis discovers something awakened inside himself and goes on the hunt for something beyond a small taste of freedom. — Deadline
Garret has been cast as the lead in Monsters of God, a new pilot for TNT produced by Plan B Entertainment. It is a post-Civil War drama written by Rod Lurie (The Contender, Resurrecting the Champ, Commander in Chief), who will also direct it. A few fun details from Deadline:
In Monsters of God, written and to be directed by Lurie, savagery and violence are the cornerstones of Colonel “Terrible” Bill Lancaster (Dillahunt)’s holy war against the Comanche in post-Civil War Texas. Despite the peaceful co-existence between the Comanche and local townspeople, Lancaster sets out on a quest to kill off every single member of the tribe, bringing chaos to the town of Slater.
Vicious, relentless, and a tower of a man, Colonel “Terrible” Bill Lancaster is the newly in-charge leader at Fort Thayer, a military base in Texas that exists to make peace with the nearby Comanche tribe. A fighter for the North in the Civil War, Lancaster’s morals stopped there; he now focuses on the total extermination of the Comanche, a goal in contrast to his orders. — Deadline
Monsters of God is also the silver lining to Hand of God not getting picked up for a third season. The second and last season of that show won’t be released until 2017.
In the meantime, here is a brief synopsis for Wheelman, the Netflix movie Garret is currently filming with Frank Grillo:
Grillo plays a getaway driver thrust into a high stakes race for survival after a bank robbery goes terribly wrong. With a car full of money and his family on the line, the clock is ticking to figure out who double-crossed him, and the only person he can trust is his 14-year-old daughter. — Variety
Here is a pic Grillo posted on Instagram last week:
Wheelman was written by Jeremy Rush, who is also directing.
Elsewhere, The New York Times is reporting November 11 as the release date for Come and Find Me, so we should probably start seeing and hearing more on that front soon.
COME AND FIND ME Aaron Paul (has it really been three years since “Breaking Bad” ended?) stars as a man whose wife disappears. It turns out she was living a double life, so finding her isn’t simple (or necessarily advisable). With Annabelle Wallis and Garret Dillahunt. Zack Whedon wrote and directed.
And The Mindy Project is coming back with its fifth season next week. The first of 16 episodes will be released on Hulu on Tuesday, Oct. 4. Here is a new trailer:
Deadline has some details about Rounding Third, the film Garret is currently filming, and his next project, called Come and Find Me.
Rounding Third is an adaptation of Richard Dresser’s 2002 play (synopsis) and Garret plays Michael, the assistant coach. From Deadline:
[John C.] McGinley stars in Rounding Third as the win-at-all-costs coach of a kids baseball team on which his son plays. Dillahunt will play the new assistant coach. The coaches butt heads as they scrap through a season despite different personal circumstances and philosophies about the game and how to motivate their team. Robert Deaton and George Flanigen are directing for producer Fred Roos.
Come and Find Me, which starts shooting in Vancouver later this month, is a 2012 Black List script written by Zack Whedon, who will also direct it. Some more info:
Come And Find Me, from writer-director Zack Whedon, stars [Aaron] Paul as David, who must track down his missing girlfriend (Annabelle Wallis) after he realizes she’s not who she was pretending to be. Dillahunt plays the girlfriend’s former handler with the government who attempts to give David incriminating evidence that the woman was holding against him.
