The Hungry Rabbit Jumps For January Jones
Mad men, an unknown white male and Ö hungry rabbits? Well, yes, but itís not that literal. THR reports that Mad Menís January Jones will squeeze in another movie before she starts work on Unknown White Male with Liam Neeson and Diane Kruger. That film is the thriller The Hungry Rabbit Jumps.
The Robert Tanen script follows a man (Nicolas Cage) desperate for vengeance after his wife is the victim of a crime. In his effort to achieve retribution, he gets tangled up with an underground vigilante group. Jones will play the wife, a part that producer James Stern of Endgame describes as ďa very meaty roleĒ and ďnot just reactive, but active.Ē
Stern is working with Tobey Maguire and Jenno Topping of Maguire Entertainment and indie producer Ram Bergman with a $30 million budget. Roger Donaldson (The Recruit and The Bank Job) is set to direct. Filming will kick off early December and is expected to wrap sometime before the late-January start of Jonesí other project, Unknown White Male.
Iím all for Jones joining the cast but that doesnít make the title or Cageís involvement any easier to digest. Letís hope thereís as much meat to the script as Stern says is in Jonesí role; otherwise weíll probably just wind up with another bitter, wide-eyed, typical Cage character at the center of this one.
