The Dark Country


Thomas Jane‘s directorial debut, Dark Country was a promising introduction for Jane as a director, and now three years later, he’s got another directorial feature in the works: a western. Jane described his upcoming film – which is nicely titled A Magnificent Death From a Shattered Hand – as “a classic Western with all the stuff I like it.” Based on what he seems to like, that probably involves men acting like real men. A few months ago Jane mentioned his plans for a possible 3D Western, and when we asked for an update on the project, he said it’ll probably shoot this year, with Nick Nolte involved as well, “I wrote a Western, and I wrote it for Nick Nolte. I sent it to Nick Nolte, and he loved it. I’m hoping to shoot that sucker this year. If it doesn’t happen this year, well, it’s going to happen.” Not only does Jane have Nolte in the cast, but also Jeremy Irons, “I got Jeremy Irons to come in and do a little part. I’m out to a couple of other actors, but I can’t tell you who they are yet.” Jane has already pulled together seven and a half million for the project, but he’s hoping to raise another two and a half, so he can “put this bitch together.”



From first time director Thomas Jane (The Punisher), comes a PSA about not picking up half-dead people in the desert…



It’s an obvious connection, but if we’re about to learn anything from these first photos from Thomas Jane’s directorial debut Dark Country, it is that its going to be a very dark film. It is also going to be on the forefront of filmmakers doing new and cool things with 3D.



Thomas Jane is currently in post production on at least two films, one of which he’s directing. 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…



Thomas Jane deserves more respect. Allow us to present the first trailer from his upcoming movie Give ‘Em Hell Malone as further evidence of this fact.


Today, Variety is telling us something that we already knew, but that you may not.



Thomas Jane is about to seem like an incredibly busy guy. This month, he began work on his major motion picture directorial debut.
