I don’t think I’ll ever get used to the title of a movie being, Hungry Rabbit Jump, but on to the casting news. Yesterday we told you that Mad Men alum January Jones had signed on to star opposite Liam Neeson in the thriller, Unknown White Male and today she’s back for more. This time, she’ll be going toe to toe with Nicolas Cage in Hungry Rabbit Jump.
According to THR, the film centers on a man (Cage) who, after a crime is perpetrated on his wife, gets more than he bargained for when he enlists a vigilante group to help him settle the score. Jones will play his wife, which producer Stern describes as “a very meaty role,” it’s “not just reactive, but active.” Roger Donaldson is attached to direct from a screenplay written by Robert Tanen.
I’m starting to think that Jones is destined to play everyone’s wife for as long as she lives. I guess if she’s good at what she does then there’s nothing wrong with it. The producer really makes her character sound volatile, as if she’s on shaky ground (mentally?). Either way, this doesn’t sound like a one dimensional part, which is good move for her. What do you think?
