The first trailer for the tumultuous, horror love story Jack and Diane has been released. The film stars Juno Temple (The Dark Knight Rises) and Riley Keough (The Runaways) as two teenage girls who fall passionately in love and must come to terms with the ramifications of their feelings (ie. the affair causes changes in one of the girls’ body). Judging solely from the trailer, the film seems to have a bit of a “Like Crazy on acid” vibe. The handheld, intimate scenes between Temple and Keough are intercut with animated sequences that are apparently revealing what’s happening in Keough’s character’s body. I’m fairly certain I saw a braid of hair twist around her insides, which I can only assume is a bad thing.
Hit the jump to watch the trailer. Directed by Bradley Rust Gray, the film also stars Cara Seymour and Kylie Minogue. Jack and Diane will be available on iTunes starting September 28th, and hits theaters on November 2nd.
We’ve got a couple of acquisition stories for you today. First up, CBS Films has acquired US distribution rights to the ghost thriller The Woman in Black. Starring Daniel Radcliffe, the film is based on the classic ghost story by Susan Hill that centers on a young lawyer visiting a remote English town that holds many ghostly secrets (there are presumably ghosts as well, judging by the creepy trailer). Deadline reports that Magnolia beat out other heavyweight bidders including The Weinstein Company and Summit. Currently no US release date is set.
Additionally, Magnolia has picked up the worldwide rights to Jack and Diane. The film stars Juno Temple (Atonement), Riley Keough (The Runaways), Kylie Minogue, and Cara Seymour (An Education). Written and directed by Bradley Rust Gray, the wholly original flick (which features animation and creature effects work) tells the story of a passionate love affair between two teenage girls in New York City. Hit the jump for a synopsis of both The Woman in Black and Jack and Diane.
