Genre-bending thriller The Scribbler is adapted from Dan Schaffer’s British graphic novel.

Garret Dillahunt, Michelle Trachtenberg, Eliza Dushku, Gina Gershon, Michael Imperioli, Billy Campbell, Kunal Nayyar and Sasha Grey also star in the pic directed by John Suits. – Deadline

Interview from the Tribeca Film Festival

The Insider has a new interview with Garret that has tons of new info about his recent projects. Stealing a few snippets (below), read the rest at the link.

Raising Hope:

Insider: What are you hoping to do in season three with Burt that you haven’t yet?
Garret: Well, I really like how physical they have Burt – I’m always wrestling and jumping and running and falling – it’s the most physically demanding show I’ve ever done, which I wasn’t expecting, but that’s what makes it fun. I hope to keep that up. And I wonder what would happen if Sabrina and Jimmy got a place of their own, which would make Burt and Virginia deal with empty nest syndrome for the first time. But that’s just me – I don’t know if that’s going to happen.

Any Day Now:

Insider: You have two films opening at The Tribeca Film Festival. First is Any Day Now, where you play one half a gay couple (alongside Alan Cumming) who tries to adopt. What attracted you to this project?
Garret: First, I’m a fan of Alan’s and he was already attached when I signed on. He’s just joy. There’s nothing toxic about the guy – he’s all about having a good time as he makes his way through life. I also thought it was a beautiful story that would be very difficult to bring to life without being sappy or manipulative – that presented an interesting challenge. As did playing this barely out of the closet attorney in the 1970s, who has to make some massive leaps in his personal life in order to make public proclamations of who he loves. It seemed very timely as well.

Revenge for Jolly:

Insider: How did Alan compare to Kristen Wiig, whom you marry in Revenge For Jolly?
Garret: [laughs] Well, my responsibilities are a lot less in Jolly. It’s a great, long wedding scene. I had played Kristen’s husband before in this short called One Night Only. Her boyfriend wrote that movie and also Jolly, so I guess he thinks Kristen and I have good on-screen chemistry. She’s another one, like Alan, that is unafraid. She jumps wholeheartedly into a role and you can’t help but be right there with them.


Insider: Who do you play in the movie?
Garret: I play Jesse, who is one of the “Gatmen” – they’re the dudes in the long black coats that are the enforcers for the bad guys. I’m hunting Joseph’s character when he messes up and breaks the rules, which allows me to the baddest of the “Gatmen.” I had the real leather coat, just so you know – which was not the best in New Orleans heat [laughs], What I like about the characters in this film is that there’s no white hats. I’m just a guy with a family trying to do his job. I don’t want to get hurt, I just want to find him and go home.

Killing Them Softly:

Insider: Didn’t Killing Them Softly [which reunites Garret with his Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford director Andrew Dominik] also film in New Orleans?
Garret: It did, but my role is just a cameo in that because Andrew was bringing back the whole Jesse James crew. Although the first cut of the film was two and a half hours long, and I know they had to trim that down to an hour and a half, so I might have been cut out. I don’t know. But it was great to see those guys again.

Any Day Now & Revenge for Jolly! at Tribeca

The official lineup for the Tribeca Film Festival has been announced today. Any Day Now will be screened in the Spotlight section and Revenge for Jolly! in the Cinemania section.

Revenge for Jolly!
Directed by Chadd Harbold, written by Brian Petsos
(USA) – World Premiere, Narrative
Harry (Brian Petsos) will stop at nothing to avenge the death of his beloved dog, Jolly. He and his demented cousin Cecil (Oscar Isaac) follow a series of clues in a frenzied attempt to track down the dog’s murderer, leaving a path of destruction in their wake. Elijah Wood, Kristen Wiig, Adam Brody, Ryan Phillippe, Gillian Jacobs, Bobby Moynihan, Kevin Corrigan, David Rasche, Amy Siemetz, and Garret Dillahunt all stand between Harry and revenge for Jolly.

Any Day Now
Directed by Travis Fine, written by Travis Fine and George Arthur Bloom
(USA) – World Premiere, Narrative
In the late 1970s, when a mentally handicapped teenager is abandoned, a gay couple takes him in and becomes the family he’s never had. But once the unconventional living arrangement is discovered by authorities, the men must fight a biased legal system to adopt the child they have come to love as their own. Alan Cumming and Garret Dillahunt star in TFF alum Travis Fine’s (The Space Between) touching and occasionally incendiary drama.

New interview and some film updates

Raising Hope moves to the 8 pm slot this Tuesday and Garret said he’ll be promoting it left and right this week. So far, only one interview showed up, at, and it’s the one he did for What’s Worth Watching a few days ago (see pic).

Katy Perry guests in this week’s episode. You can find an interview with her and Shannon Woodward at Hope for Fans. Promotional pics are here: “Single White Female Role Model.” I’ve also added pages for the next two episodes — “Spanks Butt, No Spanks” (March 13), “Poking Holes in the Story” (March 20) — and for the three films that have been missing from the site: Headhunter, Any Day Now and Revenge for Jolly!

The full lineup for this year’s Tribeca Film Festival hasn’t been announced yet, but Garret says that both Revenge for Jolly! and Any Day Now will be screened there next month. The festival runs from April 18 to April 29 this, so if you’re in New York around that time, you’d better catch them both.

Elsewhere on the film front, the first footage from Looper will be shown at Sony’s panel at WonderCon in Anaheim in a couple of weeks. From Continue reading
