MARLOWE starring Neeson, Lange, Kruger, Cumming, Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Huston, Hart and Meaney

The script from William Monahan (The Departed) is based on the novel The Black-Eyed Blonde by John Banville, with Oscar winner Neil Jordan (The Crying Game) aboard to direct.

In Marlowe, when private detective Philip Marlowe (Neeson) is hired to find the ex-lover of a glamorous heiress, it looks an open and shut case, but Marlowe soon finds himself in the underbelly of Hollywood’s film industry and unwittingly drawn into the crossfire of a legendary Hollywood actress and her subversive, ambitious daughter.

Kruger will play Clare Cavendish, the femme-fatale instigator of the plot, who inherits her irresistible charm from her notorious mother, Dorothy Cavendish, played by Oscar winner Jessica Lange.

Hart is set to play detective Joe Green, whilst Colm Meaney plays Bernie Ohls, the DA’s investigator and Chandler’s other recurring character from the original stories. Danny Huston will play the colourful country club manager, Floyd Hanson. Akinnuoye will play Cedric, the right-hand to sharply-dressed gangster Lou Hendricks, played by Cumming.

Pic is being produced by Alan Moloney, Gary Levinsohn, Philip Kim, Patrick Hibler, Mark Fasano and Billy Hines. The film is being executive produced by Elisabeth Costa de Beauregard, Patrick Muldoon, Jeff Rice, Steven Sims, Harris Tulchin, Tobias Weymar, Christopher Hines and Celine Haddad.

Alan Cumming needs to go away. What a ham.

The book is a page turner. Lange’s character is aces.

The Suicide Squad breakout Daniela Melchior and The Moodys star François Arnaud are the latest to have joined Liam Neeson movie thriller Marlowe, which is currently filming in Ireland and Spain.

The film is being shot in Ireland apparently. The description makes it sound like a Chinatown esque L.A. noir but I can't imagine anyone is dumb enough to think the Emerald isle could stand in for California.

This is an excellent cast.

Wow this looks great, I can’t wait to see it! Love a good noir. And not just the Pinot kind!

R4, That's probably why they were shooting in Barcelona, which has a temperate Mediterranean climate like California.

Part of this story is set in Ireland, too.

Please send a grease fire to the table of R1

Alan Cumming is fabulous.

The entire cast sounds enticing.

Vintage cars were on the streets of Manresa last week, and the exterior of the Catalan restaurant Miami was transformed into Schmidt's Liquor, while the building next door read "Bank of Bay City." Bay City is Raymond Chandler's pseudonym for Santa Monica.

Only 3 reasons I'd watch the film: Lange, Huston & Cummins and they probably will all have only small roles.

Wasn't Liam Neeson cancelled?

I love the word snippet. Well it sounds promising for sure. Neil Jordan can be great. Liam Neeson is beyond sexy.

Never realized it before but Jessica Lange and diane kruger actually look pretty similar enough to be believable as mother and daughter

by Anonymousreply 15November 29, 2021 10:34 AM

Neeson? Ugh.

R21 Is that a Nicole Kidman emoji…?

R22, he's pretty old. I wonder if it works?

R24 I’d make it work…

Diane Kruger is a nothing actress. I saw J.T. Leroy and I didn’t even know who she was.

R26, second movie with Liam. I wonder if they're lovers?

by Anonymousreply 27December 16, 2021 12:24 PM

There was a movie in the late 1960s called Marlowe with James Garner and DL anti-fave Rita Moreno, who I thought did a really good job. It wasn't as edgy as it really should have been, especially since it was based on the short story "Little Sister," which is grim.

I had assumed this was going to be a remake of that story but I'm glad to see it's not. Sounds more like the Gene Hackman Night Moves, so I'm seriously interested in watching this.

Hmmph. If Liam Neeson isn't searching for his daughter, the film is not worth watching.

R26, Kruger is excellent as Marie Antoinette in Farewell My Queen (2012).
