FIRST LOOK AT PATRICK STEWART AS NEO-NAZI BOSS IN “GREEN ROOM” – THE NEW FILM FROM “BLUE RUIN” DIRECTOR/WRITER JEREMY SAULNIER

I think you’ll all agree with me when I say that Blue Ruin was one of the finest independent thrillers to come out in recent years. It had a superb script, a powerful lead in Macon Blair and some really solid direction, it looked fantastic, and just hit home on so many levels. It was a prime example of what can be done if you have a great script and the talent to back it.

It was announced some time ago that Jeremy Saulnier’s follow-up to the awesome Blue Ruin would be another thriller called Green Room.

Not an awful lot has been revealed about the story…but I can you , it’s about neo-nazis and a punk band who get trapped in a building together. By the looks of things, I’m pretty sure they’re not going to forming a band band playing on stage together. I can only imagine that’s things will get pretty fucking ugly, and a punk vs neo-nazi war will commence!

Here’s the synopsis from IMDB
A young punk rock band find themselves trapped in a secluded venue after stumbling upon a horrific act of violence.

The cast include – Patrick Stewart, Imogen Poots, Anton Yelchin, Macon Blair, Mark Webber, Alia Shawkat, Joe Cole

Here’s the first pic of Patrick Stewart as the neo-nazi boss.

No doubt this is gonna be another powerful film Saulnier, and may he have many more to come.

More to follow as it’s announced.

“BLUE RUIN” DIRECTOR GETS GREEN LIGHT FOR NEXT MOVIE “GREEN ROOM”

BLUE RUIN was a brilliantly written revenge thriller with a memorable lead performance from lead character Dwight-played by Macon Blair. His character was just 100%. He was nervous, terrified, uncertain, and very unpredictable.  This just added to the realism of the storyline, and with a solid script, good direction, and some nice stunning cinematography. The film has all the right ingredients to become a cult classic.

BLUE RUIN writer/director Jerry Saulnier has now been given the go-ahead for his next feature film which will be called THE GREEN ROOM.

This film will focus on a punk band who finds themselves trapped in a venue fending off a pack of blood thirsty neo-nazi skinheads (bet ya thought I was gonna say werewolves).

Already I am loving the storyline, so keep your eyes peeled for more info on THE GREEN ROOM
