I’ll admit I didn’t know the first thing about writer-director Hue Rhodes “Saint John of Las Vegas” until today, but when you’ve got a cast that includes Steve Buscemi, Sarah Silverman, Romany Malco, Peter Dinklage, Tim Blake Nelson, John Cho and Emmanuelle Chirqui, I take notice. So when I was sent 12 images and the poster for the film which arrives in February of next year, I figured they were worth sharing. So take a look after the jump:

After a run of bad luck, John (Steve Buscemi), a compulsive gambler, runs away from Las Vegas and toward a normal job and life.  Taking a nondescript position in an auto insurance company in Albuquerque, he tries to get ahead in the straight world, amid the ever-present temptations of scratch-off lotto tickets.

When his boss, Mr. Townsend (Peter Dinklage), asks John to accompany his top fraud debunker, Virgil (Romany Malco) on an investigation of a dubious car “accident” near Vegas, John sees an opportunity to get a promotion , though he’s concerned about  returning to the gambling game. Before  leaving he becomes involved with his eccentric co-worker Jill (Sarah Silverman), a dalliance that has the potential to become a real relationship.

Through the journey, John’s confidence builds, and he realizes that he can’t escape his gambling addiction by running away from it-it will follow him wherever he goes.  It’s only when he returns to Vegas  and his experiences there finally send him on the path to breaking free.

First time writer/director Hue Rhodes’ SAINT JOHN OF LAS VEGAS follows the wild and funny trip a guy has to take to discover there’s more than one way to hit the jackpot in life.
