JOSH & PAUL Mc GUIGAN : 3rd COLLABORATION ?

After Wicker Park and Lucky Number Slevin, are Josh and director Paul Mc Guignan going to be reunited for a third time? Just as a reminder, Josh visited Australia briefly last September ...

Screen Daily report :
The Works International is partnering with James Atherton’s Quickfire Films on "T Leaf", a rom-com caper movie about the aftermath of a heist gone wrong that will be directed by Paul McGuigan.

McGuigan is currently casting the film and production is set for end of May 2010 in Australia, the UK & South Africa.

T-Leaf is produced by William Borthwick of Face Films and Nick O’Hagan of Giant Films. Miranda Culley will be producing in Australia for MacGowan Films. Borthwick wrote the script with Simon Fantauzzo.

The film follows small-time crook Terry, who, fleeing the scene of a botched robbery, is forced to leave a bag of cash with day-dreamy travel agent Meredith. She books him a round-the-world trip. On a whim, she takes off after him to reunite him with the money. Also on his tail are two assassins - sophisticated hitman Hal and street-smart babe Kylie - hired by his former accomplices.

Financing will be provided by Quickfire Films and other partners who will be announced at a later date.

“Fantauzzo and Borthwick’s screenplay for T-Leaf is a rare beast indeed. They have constructed a story that not only induces laughter on every page but also keeps you perched on the edge of your seat as the belly laughs turn to nervous ones,” McGuigan commented.

”T-Leaf is the perfect project for the independent market right now,” said Carl Clifton, MD of The Works International. “Totally commercial but really distinctive and from a great director with a proven track record. We’re thrilled to be a part of it.”

What a shame! You had a really great guess of it though! Thanks for all the info!

I have found the official synopsis and well ... the lead character is supposed to be English from the East End of London. Therefore it does not sound like a part suited for Josh ... "Through the dusty streets of Africa, the scorching wilderness of Australia, the gun slinging Wild West of America and the colourful culture of Mexico, kleptomaniac on the run, Terrence Leaph, is a fish out of water and struggles to survive in the only way he knows how, by stealing things! But he's not in the East End of London any more, and Terry finds his new surroundings more than just a culture shock. As if the heat, the language barrier, and the locals weren't enough to deal with, his plight is made even worse by his convicted gang mates (believing they were double crossed) accidentally hiring two contract killers - upper -crust Etonian Hal and the street smart, Chavvy Essex girl Kylie. From different ends of the class divide, these two fierce rivals both want to take the credit and the bounty for killing Terry first."

You're right Paige. Let's hope so. Since Josh does only indie movies, he must at least do 3 big indie films a year so that his fans worldwide can have the opportunity to see at least one of them in their local theaters. It is so difficult for indie flicks to find distribution.

Maybe that's why he went to Australia before Korea. Let's hope so.

Oh yes the interview which had 10 photoshoot pictures with it...I remember I wasn't too interested in the interview at the time, I was a bit distracted!!! Thank you, for bringing it to my attention again! You're the best!

June, here the link to the Korean interview I am referring to in my previous comment : http://www.asiae.co.kr/news/view.htm?sec=ent10&idxno=2009101617...

I'll keep my fingers crossed, that your guess is correct! You're pretty darn sharp!

Well it is just a guess so far June. But remember Josh said in an interview in Korea that after making several dark movies he would like to play in a romantic comedy. And by a strange coincidence ... T Leaf is a rom-com !!! In addition, in the extras of LNS DVD, Paul Mc Guigan said he loved working with Josh. So I guess we are going to find out pretty soon. I hope it is true, the plot of the movie sounds very original.

Hum, I know you are very good at putting all the pieces together...It would be wonderful if this happened!
