A MAGNIFICENT DEATH FROM A SHATTERED HAND … ?

2 Dec

Let me confess that in viewing the rather longish (9:47) informal preview (below) for A Magnificent Death from a Shattered Hand (2014) by Thomas Jane, I had to wonder if this wasn’t a hoax ?? The internet – especially YouTube – is famous for movie hoax’s – especially phony trailers for films that don’t really exist. Watch this – if you will – and you’ll see what I mean. Apart from this, it appears to be a legitimate project. I hope so, because, again we have a movie that boasts a rather excellent cast:

SHATTERED HAND POSTERs

Synopsis: Excerpt from Beyond Hollywood (.com)
http://www.beyondhollywood.com/two-early-posters-for-thomas-janes-upcoming-western-a-magnificent-death-from-a-shattered-hand/

” … Thomas Jane (of “Punisher” fame) is cooking up a Western called “A Magnificent Death from a Shattered Hand” that is apparently set to go into production early 2013 for, possibly, a 2014 release.
A Magnificent Death from a Shattered Hand” will be coming to you courtesy of Jane, who co-wrote the script and will direct as well as star. Jeremy Irons and Nick Nolte are also in the cast, about “an ex-soldier [who] is relentlessly tracked down for the murder and rape of a well-to-do woman”, forcing him to “face mercenaries, tribal warriors, and women of sin to clear his name and uncover the true story behind the manhunt.”

    I’ve been to fundraisers for movies that never got made. It’s not a scam really. They would LIKE to make the movie but they need to money. So they get committments (tentative) from actors, directors, writers, etc. They put together “trailers” … And then … nothing happens. Someone wanted my book and it went the same way. In th end, it came to nothing. But it was a nice thought 🙂

      Sad to hear about your book! I know your right though – many projects (many of them worthy) never see daylight. It’s not an easy thing to put a movie together it seems. And yet … look at some of the stuff that gets made.
