Written and to be directed by Lurie, Monsters of God stars Garret Dillahunt as Col. “Terrible” Bill Lancaster, who is waging a savage and violent holy war against the Comanche in post-Civil War Texas. Despite the peace between the Comanche and local townspeople, he sets out on a quest to kill off every single member of the tribe, bringing wild chaos to the town of Slater. Meanwhile, his wife, Cynthia Lancaster, will let no one get in the way of her obsessive quest to institute her wildly feminist ideals. Whether by force or free will, change is coming to Texas, and the escalating insanity will reveal humanity at its most monstrous.
Produced by Brad Pitt’s Plan B, the Amazon Studios/Bleecker Street film makes its world premiere Saturday at the New York Film Festival, where it’s the closing-night movie.
Amazon Studios and Bleecker Street have settled on a release date for the Charlie Hunnam starrer The Lost City of Z.
The film, directed by James Gray, will open in select theaters on April 21, 2017, and then expand. News of the release date comes on the eve of the movie’s world premiere at the 2016 New York Film Festival, where it’s the closing-night movie.
The co-presidents of the company responsible for two New York Film Festival titles explain their thinking behind the varied projects they’re tackling at the moment.
Brad Pitt has a famous face, but these days, his name is even more ubiquitous on projects that he doesn’t star in.
Plan B, the production company Pitt co-founded with Brad Grey and Jennifer Aniston in 2001, has gained traction in recent years as one of the most significant entities supporting auteur-driven work in the United States. In 2013, the company helped bring Steve McQueen’s Oscar-dominating “12 Years a Slave” to fruition. Over the next two years, the company’s highlights included Ava DuVernay’s “Selma” and Adam McKay’s “The Big Short,” both of which struck a marked contrast to more traditional studio offerings. Earlier this fall, the company unveiled “The Voyage of Time,” Terrence Malick’s cosmic documentary about the origins of the universe.
But there may be no better demonstration of Plan B’s current focus than the two films it produced that screened this month at the New York Film Festival: Barry Jenkins’ “Moonlight,” a decade-spanning look at the life of a young gay black man in Miami, and James Gray’s ambitious “The Lost City of Z,” a rough-hewn adventure drama about British explorer Percy Fawcett’s lifelong attempt to discover a mythical city in the middle of the Amazon rainforest. (A24, which co-produced “Moonlight,” will release the film on October 21; “The Lost City of Z” will be released by Amazon and Bleecker Street next year.) Both movies couldn’t have been made by the traditional Hollywood studio system; they’re singular works that reflect the creative freedoms of their directors, and Plan B provided a crucial foundation for them to exist.
