Jesse is mentioned in this clip:
Isabelle Huppert [pictured], Gabriel Byrne and Jesse Eisenberg have boarded Norwegian director Joachim Trier’s English-language debut Louder Than Bombs.
The family drama revolves around the character of a famous, late war photographer played by Huppert. On the eve of a retrospective of work, some three years after her untimely death, her husband and two sons discover an unsettling secret from her past.
Byrne will play the husband and Eisenberg one of the sons.
”Louder Than Bombs is a character-driven piece so I am obviously thrilled to have such incredible actors working with me on this,” Trier commented. “Isabelle, Jesse, and Gabriel are all actors I have wanted to work with for a long time, so having them play together as one family feels remarkable.”
Trier co-wrote the script with his long-time collaborator Eskil Vogt. The film will shoot in the US and Germany this autumn.
Want to see what Jesse Eisenberg, Woody Harrelson, Dave Franco and Isla Fisher are up to when they aren’t robbing banks in “Now You See Me?”
Thanks to Fandango, anyone can see their opening tricks while watching the first four minutes of the upcoming heist movie hitting theaters on May 31.
Directed by Louis Leterrier (“Clash of the Titans”), the flick follows a team of illusionists who pull off elaborate robberies during performances and reward audiences with the money. Naturally, their exciting stage spectacle catches the attention of the authorities, like an FBI agent (Mark Ruffalo) and an Interpol detective (Mélanie Laurent), who are on a mission to figure out the carefully-crafted illusion before their suspects magically disappear.
In the advanced look at the Summit Entertainment release, Eisenberg appears to be the master magician, while Harrelson and Franco are con men using their particular set of skills to make quick cash, and Fisher — well, it’s not clear whether or not she even makes it out of her first scene alive. (Although, it’s a good guess that she does.)
“Dark Knight” trilogy co-stars Morgan Freeman and Michael Caine also appear in the thriller, but aren’t featured in this clip.
