David Gordon Green provided a nice return to form with his latest film, Prince Avalanche. However, that was an incredibly small production that was shrouded in secrecy. Nevertheless, after the comic misfires of Your Highness and The Sitter, it looks like he’s returning to thoughtful drama with Joe and now Manglehorn. According to Deadline, Al Pacino is in talks to play A.J. Manglehorn, “an aging, ordinary guy in a small town who nurses his sick cat, squeezes out a conversation with the local bank teller every Friday, and eats at the same place every day.” But it turns out Manglehorn is an ex-con with a dark past who deeply regrets giving up his dream girl for a big score. Green describes the picture as “a love story, the choices you make in your youth and the situations you set up for yourself,” but adds “there is a beautiful humor in this.” Green definitely found that kind of “beautiful humor” in Prince Avalanche, and I hope he finds it again with Manglehorn.
Pacino will next be heard as one of the voices in Despicable Me 2. Green’s Joe, starring Nicolas Cage and Tye Sheridan (Mud), is set to debut on the fall festival circuit.
