A decade before Leonardo DiCaprio showed us that he was adept and no-so-adept at tuning, Guy Pearce was running around a city, trying to remember shit & doing his best to solve a murder. So this pairing at the New Beverly tonight is- damn it, I- hold on — What was I going to say? I sat down. I started typing. I looked at- Oh yeah… What I was going to tell you was that a decade before Leonardo DiCaprio showed us that he was adept and no-so-adept at tuning, Guy Pearce was running around a city, trying to remember shit & solve a murder.

Remember your first year out of college? You would come home drunk every other night, lay down on the floor & put on “Baraka” while blasting the score to “Cremaster 5”.

… that this deal stays together.  Deadline broke the story and now other sources are confirming that Charlie Kaufman is set to adapt “The Knife of Never Letting Go” — a Young Adult, SF-ish novel in Patrick Ness’ Chaos Walking trilogy.

I didn’t know a damn thing about these books until yesterday but it turns out that they’re about a planet where women are extinct — so it’s full of dudes — and all those dudes can hear what all the other dudes are thinking. Then it becomes just your typical story of boy-meets-girl-after-girl-has-crash-landed-on-a-planet-full-of-dudes-and-all-those-dudes-can-hear-what-all-the-other-dudes-are-thinking.

Thank you, Lions Gate. This is almost like living in some absurd Charlie Kaufman movie where a team of Hollywood executives start making a bunch of surprising, inspired creative decisions like hiring Charlie Kaufman to work on the successor to a worldwide phenomenon like “The Hunger Games” so he can afford to develop mind-puppetry and train a gang of mind-puppeteers who then take over Hollywood and manipulate a team of executives into making a bunch of surprising, inspired creative decisions like hiring Charlie Kaufman to work on a movie about Charlie Kaufman developing mind-puppetry so he can afford to train a gang of mind-puppeteers who take over Hollywood and steer an executive into making the inspired, surprising creative decision to hire Charlie Kaufman to work on the successor to a worldwide phenomenon like the one he worked on previously which had been the successor to a worldwide phenomenon like “The Hunger Games”, all of which allowed him to hire a gang of mind-puppeteers…

It’s based on “The Wettest County In The World”.  It’s from the guys that brought you “The Proposition” and it’s about bootlegging.  The cast alone arouses stirrings in my nether region.

And Jessica Chastain is in it, too.

Here’s the trailer:
