Killshot...It's Mickey Rourke - I'll Watch It...

The trailer for the movie Killshot is online (in shockwave flash, unfortunately). There’s a good writeup about it here, too. I think it comes out October 20th, and it looks pretty good. Quite the cast too – Diane Lane, Thomas Jane, Mickey Rourke, Joseph Gordon-Levitt, Rosario Dawson, and Johnny Knoxville. Here’s the synopsis:

Beautiful Carmen Colson (Lane) and her ironworker husband Wayne (Jane) are placed in the Federal Witness Protection program after witnessing an "incident". Thinking they are at last safe, they are targeted by an experienced hit man (Rourke) and a psychopathic young upstart killer (Gordon Levitt). The ensuing struggle will test Carmen to the limit.

Looks like it’s got some good action in it. Always good seeing Mickey Rourke back in the movies too. Kind of odd though, after his stellar turn in Sin City as Marv, hearing that voice of his in this movie keeps making me think Marv should show up.

Again that casting is wild. You’ve got the hot Diane Lane, The Punisher (Thomas Jane), Sin City’s Marv (Mickey Rourke), Sin City’s Gail (Rosario Dawson), Brendan from Brick (Joesph Gordon-Levitt), and Luke Duke (Johnny Knoxville) all in the same movie! Let me guess – the couple escapes in the General Lee at the end…

Indeed this is a bit of strange cast but the story sounds like it could develop into something worthwile and with Lane, Jane and Rourke's going to be at least a good romp. Plus, I'll see anything with Thomas Jane in it....

A good romp, indeed. You'll see it for Jane, me for Rourke (and Lane) - it's all good :)

I liked Thomas Jane in The Punisher, and hope the sequel they've been talking about eventually gets off the ground...
