Thomas Jane Leads ‘The Devil’s Commandos’ Straight Into Hell


Thomas Jane is currently in post production on at least two films… the very retro and very cool looking Give ’em Hell Malone and his 3-D horror film The Dark Country, which he’s also directing.  Add to that his new HBO series, “Hung,” that was recently picked up for a full season, and the man has a full plate.  For most actors that would be enough for one calendar year, but Jane apparently likes to work.  A lot.  So his 2009 has just gotten even busier…

ShockTillYouDrop reports that Jane will be starring in and directing a second 3-D horror film called Devil’s Commandos.  The movie is co-written by Todd Farmer and Tim Bradstreet, with Farmer the scribe behind next month’s My Bloody Valentine 3-D.  Farmer says the story comes from the warped mind of Bradstreet, who originally wanted Farmer to write it himself.  “Turns out, not only can Timmy draw,” Farmer says, “his noodle churns out some rockin’ ideas. Who knew? But I told him if I wrote the thing he wouldn’t get any credit. He’d end up as a footnote somewhere. So I suggested he write it with me.”  The film should start production after Jane finishes his “Hung” commitment for HBO.  Devil’s Commandos “is about a WWII commando unit sent on a rescue mission. Pretty straight forward. Except for the part where hell opens up and they have to fight Satan’s army.”  Farmer was also kind enough to pass along a faux poster for the film and it is awesome.  If the movie ends up being even half as cool as this artwork then we’re in for an incredible ride.


What do you think of the recent crop of 3-D horror movies aimed at adults?
