Will David O. Russell ever finish NAILED, starring Jessica Biel?

With only one day of shooting left on the slate, David O. Russell's (I HEART HUCKABEES, THE FIGHTER) dark comedy NAILED, starring Jessica Biel, was shut down due in large part to a new owner coming in to claim rights on the movie. NAILED also stars Jake Gyllenhaal and centers around a quirky waitress who travels to Washington to defend the rights of the bizarrely injured after being shot in the head with a nail gun. That's something we all undoubtedly want to see, but will Russell have the chance to complete it?

The hot-headed director had this to say to The Playlist: “I think you kinda keep going and stay with the forward moment...That’s kinda what you have to do. So that’s what I’m doing.”

It would be one thing if the production was halted halfway through production and Russell really wanted to jump back in full force and finish a passion project. But even though he has high hopes for the finished product, he won't be returning. “There was a lot that was going on that I liked, but it was kinda a stillbirth, you know? So when that happens, the whole thing gets kinda weird," he said.

Look for NAILED to see hit theaters eventually, and in the mean time, stay away from power tools.
