The revolver? The Mateba? An Italian "automatic" revolver. ;)

 

The images are bad ass guys. Thanks for sharing them.

Here's one to address the rumor mill.

There were a lot of reports circulating early-on about Michelle Rodriguez being cast in Give 'em Hell Malone.

 

Not true.

 

Michelle Rodriguez will not be in the film. This news comes from several reliable sources within the production.

I believe they were looking at her for Mauler, the role which eventually went to the lovely and extremely talented, Chris Yen.

 

Incidentally, Chris is the younger sister of world famous martial arts great, Donnie Yen (Blade II), and both are the children of world-renowned martial artist, Tai Chi Master Bow Sim Mark. Chris also won the All-around Bronze Medal, and Honorary Medal for Youngest Competitor at the first-ever International Wushu Tournament in Xian, China. This girl (also a graduate of Boston College) has got Wushu in her blood!

 

More on Donnie and Chris Yen's world famous mother here ------> Bow Sim Mark at Wikipedia

 

And now a moment of silence in honor of Tom Jane, who will spend the rest of the day getting tuned up at the hands of Chris Yen's fighting prowess ;)

I think it's more of a fantasy, out of time/alternate reality that takes place in a nameless city. Tom could probably shed a little more light on that for us.

The only thing I've seen so far that would lurch the piece forward and out of a solid "period film", would be the Mateba Model 6 Autorevolver that Malone uses.

The hand gun was designed in 1997. So that takes us out of time slightly ;) Perhaps the production IS doing a period piece and they are asking gun afficianados to suspend their disbelief. Hoping Tom can tell us more.

That is a cool looking gun.

 

I like that idea of it taking place out of time/alternate reality in a nameless city.

Well we had a ball promoting Dark Country here on the forum while we were in production.

I think it's kind of cool to get an inside perspective on the inner workings.

Obviously we have to play ball with the studio's wishes too, so we don't want to give too much away.

Healthy teasers doesn't commit a foul though.

 

I think it's fairly clear that a good portion of our members know a thing or two about film aside from the sitting in your seat munching popcorn part.

In a sense we like to treat our members like discerning filmgoers.

Part of our purpose with the forum and the site is to promote our projects, naturally.

And there is no better way to do that than with a from-within, grass roots, look behind the curtain.

Also bringing in other professionals to share their thoughts.

 

On Dark Country we heard from the likes of -

 

The Star/Director himself, Tom Jane.

The Writer, Tab Murphy.

The Director Of Photography, Geoffrey Boyle.

The Production Designer, me.

The 3D producer/advisor, Ray Zone.

And the Storyboard artist, David Allcock.

 

We also featured a big behind the scenes production diary, complete with lots of set pics. A total behind the scenes look from pre-pro to wrap.

 

We'd like to do those kinds of things with all of our projects, subject to the availability of the creative forces.

Not sure what kind of access we'll be given in the case of Malone as of yet. But at the very least you can expect updates from Tom, who has been providing us with cool pics and inside slants. Tom Racine and I hope to conduct some podcast interviews as well.

 

Stay tuned, we should have plenty more to come.

Thanks for sharing the infos and images!

 

Tom looks cool as Malone. I like the hat and that gun. I guess the setting could be deliberately nebulous like they did it in "Seven" for example. The city has no name, it's just a big city in the US. There is the noir feel with some clothes and cars and stuff, but there are also aspects that indicate a more modern era. "Payback" also has that sort of timeless feeling. It can create a great atmosphere.

Tom,

 

this looks GREAT! Way better than anything we've seen from that other retro-noir movie that's coming out this December.... what's it called again? Ghostie? Spectre...? Something like that.

 

Anyway, I'm praying this gets a cinema release... those stills alone are enough to get me in the queue for the first showing. I loves me some hardboiled noir.

 

Good luck with the rest of the shoot, y'all!

 

Best wishes,

 

 

Chris.

right on Chris. the film has already been pre-sold in england so i think your wish will come true. BTW, did you see Mutant C ? they released the version with unfinished FX and editing in the UK and it actually got a couple good reviews. there's a lot to like about it, even though it's not finshed, and i don't know if it will ever get done now with the insane amount of internet DL's going on.

 

Let's hope that doesn't happen with MALONE. i'm glad peeps are digging the pics we've thrown up here. i've always wanted to make this kind of Noir action piece with grit and guts and that fast talking wry tough guys and faster women. the folks that have gleened that it is a picture set 'out of time' are right on the money. we've created a kind of 'noirverse' where there all the cars are cool (no matter what era they were built) and all the women are hot (no matter what era they were built) and you could get shot for talking backwards down a brick side street with a tommy gun or a Mateba Unica 6.

 

and there is no such thing as a cell phone.

 

but Porn has been invented.

 

and people dress well.

 

they have good manners,

 

but they will poke your eye out if you look at their girl.

 

yes, it's my version of a 'perfect' world.

 

oh, and did I mention that Malone's the star? Convenient, Malone, very convenient. But more on that Mateba Unica 6 later, and i how i came to be the sole possessor of it fresh out of the box, even though they quit production in 1997. bought it just for this film. and it's going home with me after.

 

and more on that 1952 Chop Top Buick Straight 8, primer black with red rims and white wall tires. and how I found that car just days before shooting began and had it shipped up to Spokane from Oxnard just in time to get the grand old can running like the beast she used to be. she likes me for it too, told me so herself when i was throwing her around doing 165's the other day. she said it really greased her couplings.

 

it's 4 am and i just got home from getting slapped in the face by Elsa Pataky. she has a lovely slap. it's good enough to dream on.

thank for posting the pics, Tim. i'll be getting some more in the next couple days, so check back. the cast is great so far, i gotta say. this little girl CHRIS YEN is a real ass kicker. she's really damn good with the fighting and knives and shit. her mom was a super num chuk lady or something. there's some great stuff on Youtube about her - check her out! http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=P5rtVwngfLk...feature=related i think she's a fucking star. we're shooting a scene tomorrow where she beats the hell out of me, so wish me luck.

 

Of course, what else would an asian person be doing in a western action film but to act like a stereotype asian person.

If she's got the talent why not showcase it? This could lead to a lot of good things for her in her career.

Ease off. I sincerely doubt Tom meant it that way, and I would appreciate it if we kept on topic here and talked about Malone.

 

This was meant as an example of her fighting skills, and nothing more. Lets not make something out of it.

 

bought it just for this film. and it's going home with me after.

 

That's just cool. :) Green with envy.

 

Let's hope that doesn't happen with MALONE.

 

Amen. I don't want to see what's happened with MC happen to ANY fucking film. It's a crying shame.

 

she said it really greased her couplings.

 

I'm sure Chip Foose would tip his hat to you. ;)

 

yes, it's my version of a 'perfect' world.

 

Can't wait to see it Tom. Can't wait to walk around in your perfect world for a couple hours.

 

it's good enough to dream on.

BTW, did you see Mutant C ?

 

No, sorry, not yet. Been working long hours...

I won't miss it, though, don't worry.

 

Shot any scenes with Mr. Rhames yet?

 

My wife's got a "thing" for Ving...

which is weird, 'cos she usually goes for skinny white guys... :)

Let me be the first to welcome our newest RAW member, and writer of Give 'em Hell Malone, Mr. Mark Hosak.

Never give in to these prying bastards, they will leverage you for the tiniest scrap of story spoilage ;)

 

Seriously Mark, I'm very intrigued with the world and characters you've created.

It's just the kind of material Jane was hoping to find or create on his own (Amateur Kind comes to mind).

I'm glad you two got hooked up. Tom is VERY excited with the project and I'll bet that's translating on screen to everyone's hopes and desires.

Hopefully I'll get a chance to meet ya if you're up on location and I end up making an appearance for a gallery shoot.

 

 

Welcome aboard, and thanks for bringing us a piece of your world.

I'm absolutely loving seeing it realized. Hope you are stoked too.

OK, I'm WAY buzzed off these pix. The whole concept is soaked with hot/cool - and I love the idea of the "noirverse". When does the train leave and where do I buy my one-way ticket?

 

But what I'm dying to know is, because MALONE is "timeless", what kind of music is being used on set, if any. I think TJ mentioned jazz for the final product but are y'all using any muscial cues during the shoot?

Glad you're digging kdedu.

 

Here's more Graphique Écouter, fresh from that nameless city. . . up north.

Do you remember how to get to Shell Beach?

 

Bless those that know the reference.

Boy, it sure looks like Malone is about to get some hell.

 

They aren't re-creating the chair scene from Thursday with Ving are they? :P
