Since I had forgotten all about Killshot, receiving the first official poster for the film didn't seem like that big of deal. Then it hit me tha this film was supposed to be released back in 2006 and I could only conclude, "finally!"
From Academy Award® nominated director John Madden comes Hossein Amini's wry adaptation of Elmore Leonard's best-selling crime novel. The beautiful Carmen Colson (Diane Lane) and her husband Wayne (Thomas Jane) become entangled in a scam with a bumbling, small time con artist (Joseph Gordon Levitt) and his over-the-hill hit man partner the blackbird (Mickey Rourke). Ultimately, it all comes down to one wife, one husband, two killers... and one lethal killshot.
Not only is the film's limited release approaching -- January 23rd -- but this poster serves as a heads up that we can expect a trailer either this week or next. The funny thing about this poster was that I saw an earlier version of it and that one had Diane Lane holding the shotgun. Wonder why the last-minute switch...
