2 JACKS Starring Jack Huston & Sienna Miller Arrives in US Theaters 10/18
Breaking Glass Pictures is pleased to announce the October 18th theatrical release of Bernard Rose’s 2 Jacks, starring Sienna Miller (The Girl, Stardust, Factory Girl), Jack Huston (HBO’s hit series “Boardwalk Empire”, Kill Your Darlings), Danny Huston (Starz’s “Magic City”, The Aviator, Children of Men) and Jacqueline Bisset (Casino Royale, Airport, Bullitt, “Nip/Tuck”). Julia Verdin of Rough Diamond Productions produced the film.
Based on Tolstoy’s short story “The Two Hussars,” the modernized film is Rose’s fourth Tolstoy adaptation. 2 Jacks had its world premiere at the Montreal World Film Festival and will open October 18th in fifteen cities across the US, anchored by screenings in New York, Los Angeles, San Diego, Philadelphia, Phoenix and Chicago. The film will be available nationwide on cable VOD the same day.
2 Jacks is a fast-paced, glamorous and romantic vision of Hollywood now and then. Legendary film director Jack Hussar (Danny Huston), notorious gambler and womanizer, returns to LA to raise financing for his next film.
In a whirlwind night on the town, Jack seduces the stunning Diana (Miller), hits some wild industry parties, narrowly escapes a brush with the law, before playing a high-stakes poker game at dawn.
Years later, Jack Hussar Jr. (Jack Huston) arrives in Hollywood for his directorial debut, and an older Diana (Bisset), finds her daughter falling for her former lover’s son.
Supporting cast includes Billy Zane (Titanic), Izabella Miko (Yellow, Clash of the Titans), Lydia Hearst (The Last International Playboy, “Mistresses”), Jamie Harris (Rise of the Planet of the Apes, “Magic City”) and Richard Portnow (Hitchcock).
