15 awards season hopefuls looking for distribution
These currently homeless films could find room if picked up
Director: David Gordon Green
Stars: Nicolas Cage, Tye Sheridan
Festival(s): Venice, Maybe Telluride, Toronto
Why it's on our radar: David Gordon Green has "Prince Avalanche" ready to roll out into theaters next week and apparently found time to get "Joe" in the can, too. The film stars Tye Sheridan, and readers of this space know I was blown away by his work in "Mud" from Green's old college mate Jeff Nichols earlier this year. Here he's paired with Nicolas Cage in what could be a breath of fresh air from the actor, who as of late has been, well, let's just say floundering.
