Harmony Korine Casts Marlon Wayans In Hitman Movie
Former semi-professional skateboarder and Kids scribe Harmony Korine is making plans for his new film, and in doing so, he's turned to a rather unlikely lead. Marlon Wayans, best known for his famous family and goofy persona, has signed on to star in the Dogme 95 director's upcoming Twinkle Twinkle. The plot will follow a hitman who disguises himself in a dollar bill costume. Maybe not as weird as Gummo or Trash Humpers, but the upcoming project is definitely far from normal and thus falls well into the Harmony Korine wheelhouse.
According to The Wrap, there's no word yet on when this might start shooting, but I'm already on board. Marlon Wayans has been nothing short of excellent in the dramatic roles he's chosen, and anyone who saw Julien Donkey-Boy can attest to just how powerful, scary and uncomfortable Korine's work can make an audience. Yes, the content's graphic nature and unconventional presentation often alienate the majority of potential viewers, but those who stay are always in for an emotional response, whether they enjoy the film or not.
If you enjoyed Wayans' voice work in Marmaduke, probably best to steer clear on this one.
