That’s a hell of a cast and the film will premiere at the 2010 SXSW Festival. Written & directed by Chris D’Arienzo and based on the book “Life is a Strange Place” by Frank Turner Hollon.
Barry Munday (Patrick Wilson – Watchmen), a suburban wanna-be ladies man, wakes up in the hospital after being attacked in a movie theater, only to realize that he is missing one of his most prized possessions… his testicles. To make matters worse, Barry learns he’s facing a paternity lawsuit filed by a woman he can’t remember having sex with.
With this being Barry last chance to ever be a father, Barry reaches out and embraces the journey of parenthood and the onslaught of bumps that face him along the way.
Filled with an ensemble of unusual characters, “Barry Munday” is the surprisingly heart-warming tale of a guy who finds it took losing his manhood to be a better man.

Based on a harrowing true story… The film opens as officers arrive at the scene –a typical middle-class neighborhood in San Diego. The suspect has barricaded himself inside a home and appears to have taken hostages. Two friends he had urgently telephoned earlier that morning arrive, but too late. As they and their neighbors try to come to grips with what has happened, they tell their stories to the detective in charge of the crime scene. In a series of flashbacks, the bizarre story of Brad Macallam begins to emerge. After an ill-fated white-water kayaking trip in a distant land, Brad finds readjustment to suburban life increasingly difficult. As his disaffection grows and his relations with those around him become strained, he glimpses a world more vivid and strangely frightening than others can see. The detectives try to penetrate the mystery of his story, but the questions only multiply. Brad’s unfolding personal and family drama leads to an obsession with the ancient play, finally driving him to murder.
Herzog wrote and directed this and David Lynch executive produced.
It stars Michael Shannon, Chloë Sevigny and Willem Dafoe.

The Killing Room is a psychological thriller about four people who sign up for a research study only to discover that they are now subjects of a brutal, classified government program and Firstshowing had the poster (via ShockTillYouDrop) and they also have a couple of photos from the film.
Clea DuVall, Timothy Hutton, Nick Cannon, and Shea Whigham star as the four individuals who join the program. They’re also joined by Peter Stormare and Chloë Sevigny.
As a group, they are presented with a series of questions and a finite window of time by which each of them must submit a unique numerical answer. They soon come to realize that, in this lethal psychological game, the correct answer is not always the right one. Behind the scenes, the mysterious and brooding Dr. Phillips (Stormare) deviously pulls the strings as the most recent addition to his team, military psychologist Ms. Reilly (Sevigny), is emotionally torn by her first assignment.
The Killing Room is directed by Jonathan Liebesman (Darkness Falls, The Texas Chainsaw Massacre: The Beginning)
Sounds like a good concept and the poster looks great. Sounds like the type of thing Chisholm, Howard Moon and The Russian would love.

Andy D passed me this story from The Telegraph.
Rhys Ifans is to play the role of fellow Welshman Howard Marks in a British film about the life of the reformed drug smuggler.
The actor will star alongside Chloe Sevigny and David Thewlis the adaption of the former cannabis dealer’s best-selling autobiography.
Ifans, 40, is in final negotiations to play the part of Marks, who spent seven years at Terre Haute jail in Indiana after his hashish empire was busted by the US Drug Enforcement Administration.
During his 20-year career as a drug dealer, the Oxford graduate cultivated ties with members of the IRA and was apparently recruited as a spy by the British secret services.
Bernard Rose is writing and directing the film, which is based on Marks’s 1996 autobiography, Mr Nice.
Sevigny is in talks to play Marks’ wife Judy, who lived with him for most of the time that he was dealing drugs. She was herself imprisoned for two years and separated from her three children as a result of her involvement in Marks’ affairs. Thewlis will play the IRA man with whom Marks conspired to traffic cannabis through Ireland and on to Britain.
Marks said he was pleased at the news and disclosed Ifans had been a fan. “We met in the 1990s at a Super Furry Animals gig,” he said. “I didn’t have a clue who he was but he wanted by autograph. He brought over all these cigarette papers and asked me to sign them.
“I thought I was doing him a really big favour but since them he has become so famous it’s like he’s doing me one.”
Marks studied at Balliol College, Oxford in the 1960s before turning to drug dealing out of boredom. By the 1980s, he has 43 aliases, 89 phone lines and 25 worldwide companies trading as money-laundering vehicles for his dope business.
He was released from prison in April 1995 after serving seven years of his sentence, and claims he was never violent to anyone during his criminal career. He stood for parliament in 1997 on the issue of leglisation of cannabis.
