As: The Drifter
Release: SUMMER 2009
Josh's New Film: "Bunraku"
A mysterious drifter (Josh Hartnett) and an ardent young Japanese warrior Yoshi (Gackt) both arrive in a town that is terrorized by outrageous and virulent criminals. Each is obsessed with his separate mission, and guided by the wisdom of The Bartender (Woody Harrelson) at the Horseless Horseman Saloon, the two eventually join forces to bring down the corrupt and contemptuous reign of Nicola (Ron Perlman), the awesomely evil "woodcutter" and his lady Alexandra (Demi Moore), a femme fatale with a secret past. This classic tale is re-vitalized and re-imagined in an entirely fresh visual context, set in a unique world that mixes skewed reality with shadow-play fantasy, a place where even the landscape can betray you. Heroes triumph here only because the force of their will transforms and transcends both space and time.

MEXICAN DRUG GANGS SHUT DOWN MENDES, HARTNETT FILM

A film that would have starred Eva Mendes and Josh Hartnett was forced to halt production because of threats made to the crew by Mexican drug cartels, according to reports.
The film "Queen of the South" -- about a cocaine smuggler -- was slated to be filmed in Sinaloa on Mexico's northern coast but the film's director said he received threats and was forced to pull the plug on production, Variety reported.
"I've worked really hard to make this beautiful movie, but the safety of my family and my team comes first," Jonathan Jakubowicz told Variety. "Making this movie would have put us all at risk, not only in Mexico but in the U.S."
"The world should pray for peace in Mexico," the director said.
Jakubowicz allegedly received threats at his family's home in Los Angeles, the Independent (UK) reported.
