Jeremy Piven and Thomas Jane join I MELT WITH YOU

Sadly, this is not news I bring you of Jeremy Piven and Tom Jane signing on to star in a biopic of '80s new wave band Modern English. Until that project gets announced (I'm holding my breath), I'll give you something to tide you over in the form of this story.

Mark Pellington (ARLINGTON ROAD, THE MOTHMAN PROPHECIES) has cast Thomas Jane and Jeremy Piven in his ensemble thriller I MELT WITH YOU, which centers around the "interconnecting lives of four men." The script is based on an original story by Pellington and screenwriter Glenn Porter (the drummer from Alkaline Trio?).

Pellington had this to say to Deadline about I MELT WITH YOU:

"I am 48 and found a dearth of of films that speak to my life experience," Pellington said. "Where is my generation's version of Cassavetes' Husbands? It is hard to get anything idiosyncratic made for a budget. I have been shooting music videos on small cameras at low cost and wanted to apply it to a film. This is about four guys and deals with mortality, aging and friendship. It is very dark and very low budget. I have nothing against the larger budget movies I have made. I just want to make movies and doing it this way improves my chances."

The film, which was privately financed, will have a budget of around a million dollars. Production will commence in early August.

    I think that may have been my personal bias coming into play. Cobra has been one of my favorites for a long time and even though I recognize how important the original Rocky is to the whole series, I found the movie itself to be a tad slow and boring. That doesn’t mean it wasn’t a good movie mind you just a personal preference BTW, Stallone only got paid 30K to do Cop Land.
