Finally! Here’s the first trailer for Oscar-winning screenwriter of Precious, Geoffrey Fletcher’s feature film directorial debut Violet & Daisy – a film we’ve been following since it was first made public in early 2010. It eventually made its world premiere at the Toronto International Film Festival in the fall of 2011.
Last November (2012) Cinedigm Entertainment acquired North American distribution rights to the film, setting a June 7, 2013 theatrical release date.
Cinedigm will also release the film on-demand, digital and DVD platforms.
The cast includes Saoirse Ronan, Alexis Bledel, James Gandolfini, Marianne Jean-Baptiste and Danny Trejo in what has been described as a “Thelma and Louise meets Superbad meets Pulp Fiction” story.
Ronan and Bledel play a pair of teenage assassins lured into what is supposed to be just another quick and easy job, only to find complications as the man they’re supposed to kill is not who they expected.
As for upcoming projects, Fletcher is working on a script about the Attica prison uprising in 1971, which Doug Liman is attached to direct.
Until that becomes a reality, here’s the first trailer for his feature film debut, Violet & Daisy. You’ll find the poster underneath:
