A profoundly early test screening review of David Koepp's MORTDECAI coming in 2015 starring Johnny Depp!
Hey folks Harry here... I'm very intrigued by this film. First off, I'm quite fond of David Koepp's work as a director, even moreso than his work as a screenwriter. As a director, his films TRIGGER EFFECT, STIR OF ECHOES and PREMIUM RUSH were absolutely excellent. As a screenwriter, his work on DEATH BECOMES HER, THE SHADOW, MISSION IMPOSSIBLE, JURASSIC PARK, PANIC ROOM, WAR OF THE WORLDS and JACK RYAN: SHADOW RECRUIT have delighted me. But in particular - that direction of his has been particularly sharp. In adapting Kyril Bonfiglioli's Charlie Mortdecai for Johnny Depp... well I'm particularly curious. Johnny Depp will be playing an Art Dealer, who is an amoral psychopath/anti-hero... and is a pulpish character by way of a wicked sense of humor. With the additional cast of Ewan MacGregor, Paul Bettany, Jeff Goldblum, Olivia Munn, Oliver Platt, Audrey Plaza and Gwyneth Paltrow... well... I'm expecting the best. Our first Test Screening review from "The Phantom Stranger." Now the film isn't due till February of 2015 - and from this non-spoiler review, it sounds like it is well on its way. There's still much to be done on the film, visual effects, scoring, color timing and much more. So that the film plays as solid as it did for THE PHANTOM STRANGER is a very good sign. This is one we'll have to look out for!
