Hmm lost the original notice of this movie, but here's some updated news from the Cannes Film Festival.

Summit dons Maybury's Jacket
Mike Goodridge in Cannes 20 May 2003 04:05

Summit Entertainment has added The Jacket, a new film from Mandalay Pictures to its sales slate. Mark Wahlberg is attached to star in the lead role of the drama which is the first US film from the UK’s John Maybury (Love Is The Devil).

A co-production between Mandalay and Section Eight, the Warner-based production outfit of Steven Soderbergh and George Clooney, the film will be distributed domestically by Warner Bros, although it is unclear as yet whether it will go through Warner’s main distribution organisation or a specialised division should the studio opt to create one this year.

Wahlberg, who has become associated with blockbusters such as The Italian Job, Planet Of The Apes and The Perfect Storm, stars in the intimate drama about a clairvoyant man wrongly convicted of murder who must use his abilities to discover who has framed him by shifting in and out of different realities, time and frames of mind to solve the mystery and prevent his own execution.

The film was originally written by Marc Rocco (Murder In The First) and had at various times Rocco and Antoine Fuqua attached to direct, although it has now been recrafted as a smaller film. A new draft of the screenplay has been written by Massy Tadjedin (Leo).

Soderbergh, Clooney and Peter Guber will produce the film which will start once Wahlberg has finished his stint in David O Russell’s ensemble comedy I Love Huckabees opposite Jude Law, Dustin Hoffman and Catherine Deneuve.

Thanks a lot for the info. I like this story line very much. As yet, noone else, other than Mark is starring! I wonder who else will sign up?

Mark on The Jacket from Blackfilm.com:
http://www.blackfilm.com/20030523/features/markwahlberg.shtml


[...]The project that I’m doing in the Fall is something that I have always wanted to do. It’s called “The Jacket”. It’s a cross between “Jacobs’s Ladder” and “One Flew Over The Cookoo’s Nest”. It’s a very demanding role, physically and mentally so I’m gonna have to give it my all but I’m excited about it. This is something you don’t get to do very often.

If you haven't seen it yet, Variety reported last night Mark is OUT of The Jacket. No reasons given.

Adrien Brody is in talks to replace him. John Maybury still set to lens and no other cast has been said.
