James Gandolfini to Co-Star in VIOLET & DAISY

by     Posted 3 years, 353 days ago

James Gandolfini will co-star in Geoffrey Fletcher’s indie drama Violet & Daisy.  Per Variety, the story “centers on a pair of teenage assassins (played by Saoirse Ronan and Carey Mulligan) who are lured into what is supposed to be just another quick and easy job, only to find complications as the man they’re supposed to kill is not what they expected.”  Fletcher, who won the Oscar for Best Adapted Screenplay for Precious, will make his directorial debut on the picture.  Last month, we reported that Bruce Willis and Danny Trejo were in talks to co-star.

As we previously reported, Gandolfini is also attached to star in the HBO movie Cinema Verite and he’s also producing an adaptation of French Canadian sitcom Taxi 0-22 for the network.  He’ll next be seen in theater in the  indie drama Welcome to the Rileys.

    Woa woa woa. Saoirse is already playing a young assassin. Type cast?

      How is it a typecast? it is only the second time she will play an assassin. Early reports always had this movie as a cross between “Thelma and Louise” meets “Superbad” and “Pulp Fiction.” There’s plenty of action, and lots of girl power”
      So it is still a different movie from the last one. Plus she has the range to do many different genres so I am sure she will do something else next.

      I am excited for this one.

        I do agree with you though Bill that after this one, hopefully she doesn’t do another one in this genre for a while.
