If you have yet to see the tragic documentary Dear Zachary: A Letter to a Son About His Father, I urge you to go seek it out without getting informed in terms of any sort of plot. Directed by Kurt Kuenne, the power of the film had a lot to do with uncontrollable events and so I’ve been interested to see if he has what it takes to helm something not under these circumstances. It looks like we’ll get to see the results soon, as Variety reports his next film has been picked up for distribution.
He has switched from documentary format to narrative for the sci-fi film Shuffle, which follows “a man who wakes up at a different age in his life each morning.” Starring T.J. Thyne and Paula Rhodes, distributor Screen Media Films has picked it up for distribution later this year and president Suzanne Blech called it a ” wonderfully imaginative thriller with twists that will challenge audiences.” One can see an expanded synopsis below along with the poster.
Shuffle is the tale of a man who begins experiencing his life out of order; every day he wakes up at a different age, on a different day of his life, never knowing where or when he’s going to be once he falls asleep. He’s terrified and wants it to stop – until he notices a pattern in his experience, and works to uncover why this is happening to him – and what or who is behind it.
As my review can attest to, I’m looking forward to not only watch John Wick again but also see how the film hits with general audiences when it arrives this weekend. The actioner stars Keanu Reeves as an ex-hitman who is crossed by the son of his old employer. When everything is taken from him, he decides to […]

His latest work is a pair of scores for films that were both released this month, Jake Paltrow‘s neo-western Young Ones and the journalistic thriller Kill the Messenger starring Jeremy Renner. Johnson has also been producing a couple albums and […]
