Okeydokey, this is fabulous news. My view of Michael Pitt projects has always been the more elliptical and lowlife, the better. The source material is perfect, then. And Devor and Mudede certainly specialize in uses of the ellipsis. When Charles namedropped Pitt here last year I crossed my fingers it was a sign something like this might happen.

Yay!

This has great potential. Michael Pitt is beautiful and fascinating.

does the part call for him to be somber and glower a lot?
4
Unfortunate for PItt. Does he even know who Charles Mudoodoo is?!
5
When will the SIFF screening for this be? Next year?

Or will we get a lightly edited rush copy?
6
Skedded? Seriously?

@6 I HATE Variety. Skedded is neither easier to write NOR read than Scheduled. Unless you're fluent in douchebag.

@4,

You are wrong. This is fortunate for Pitt.

Charles Mudede is as brilliant as he is crazy. While it is true that this movie could be a terrible bomb, it is equally possible that it could be fantastic. Whether good or bad, it will undoubtedly be interesting and weird, which has been a hallmark of many of Pitt's past movies. So he'll probably fit right in.

@7, Varietyspeak is a great bit of genuine Americana, and losing it would be a fucking tragedy.

P.S. The Variety article lists Pitt as one of the writers too: "Devor and Pitt co-wrote the script with Barry Gifford ("Lost Highway") and Charles Mudede".

Sounds like an interesting film. Michael Pitt can be really good, but he can also give lazy performances that rely on pursed lips and stoned glares. I hope Mr. Devor can push him to be at his best.

Not a fan of phrase titles, though. I recommend changing it to Hobo Underworld.

I don't think much would be lost if "skedded" were permanently erased from the lexicon. Replacing it with "skedged" would be a fair compromise.

You insulars haven't gotten the news?

The ROW (Rest of World) doesn't give a crap any more about something just because its set in/about/has someone from/makes reference to/was shot in...Seattle.

This is one of my favorite books, it's amazing in all ways. I hope they don't blow it. Pitt is a great choice for Jack Black (the author of the memoir).
14
Wow, congrats Mr. Mudede. That book may've triggered Burrough's Literary Outlaw life.
15
-Burrough's +Burroughs', but you knew that.
16
bonertown.
17
Ah, so this is why Charles was hanging out with Michael Pitt a few months ago. It doesn't seem quite so random anymore.

@12. You are referencing a period of time that never existed. Shit-bird.

I hear the 20-minute dream sequence featuring Ludwig Feuerbach kills the pace.

There's no place for Chuckie, the most brilliant Zimbabwean (self-declared) in all of America, to go but up after a writing about his true passion: men fucking horses.
