Friday the 13th (October 13, 2006) Infamous will come out in theaters in the US (at least in LA and New York) after a premiere at the Venice Film Festival.
Infamous tells this story (from imdb.com): While researching his book In Cold Blood, writer Truman Capote (Jones) develops a close relationship with convicted murderers Dick Hickock and Perry Smith.
Sound familiar??? It's a very similar story to 2005's Capote which received 5 Academy award nominations including the best actor Oscar for Phillip Seymour Hoffman.
Bummer for Toby Jones who is playing the part of Truman Capote. Toby Jones, is best known to me for playing the voice of Dobby the House Elf in Harry Potter and the Chamber of Secrets and Smee in Finding Neverland.
Bummber for Sandra Bullock who is playing the part of Harper Lee which Catherine Keener got a supporting actress nod for last year.
Bummer for Douglas McGrath who wrote and directed this fun and gutsy film when Bennett Miller was nominated for best director last year and Dan Futterman was nominated for best adapted screenplay last year.
Bummer for Warner Independent who are distributing Infamous.
Bummer, bummer, bummer.
The cast for infamous also includes soon-to-be-James-Bond Daniel Craig & Lee Pace (playing the killers Perry Smith and Dick Hickock) as well as stars Peter Bogdanovich, Jeff Daniels, Hope Davis, Gwyneth Paltrow, Isabella Rossellini, and Sigourney Weaver.
