Vincent D’Onofrio to direct feature western, "The Kid"

Jordan Schur

Jordan Schur, the former Geffen Records president, Suretone Records founder and manager of acts including Fleetwood Mac, ZZ Top and Lonestar, is jumping squarely into the film business with his Suretone Pictures banner. Schur has set the venerable actor and Daredevil star Vincent D’Onofrio to make his feature directorial debut on The Kid, a Western he will star in with James Franco and Ethan Hawke. Schur has set the film for domestic release with Lionsgate and Red Granite International’s Christian Mercuri will sell overseas territories beginning at Toronto.

At the same time, Schur has set Joe Carnahan to direct Five Against A Bullet, a potential franchise that has a script by Alex Litvak and Carnahan. That film, which once had Bruce Willis attached at Columbia when Schur was partnered in Mimran Schur Pictures, is starting anew, with a director who seems well suited for the material: five elite bodyguards are tasked with keeping safe through the elections a mayoral candidate of the most powerful city in Mexico, after the candidate’s father and previous office holder was murdered. An army of cartel hitmen are gunning for the candidate, under orders of the biggest drug cartel kingpin. Suretone Pictures, Di Bonaventura Pictures and Mimran Schur are behind this, with Lorenzo di Bonaventura, Schur and Mimran producing. RGI’s Mercuri is selling foreign on that one, and domestic distribution hasn’t been set.

D’Onofrio will direct The Kid, which is the story of gunfighter Billy the Kid leading up to his killing by Sheriff Pat Garrett. The Andrew Lanham-scripted tale is told through the eyes of a young boy who is torn between his admiration of the gunfighter legend and his need to save his family. The boy’s uncle has murdered his father and when he catches up to the boy and his sister, the uncle turns her out as a prostitute. The enraged boy tracks down Billy the Kid, hoping his hero will get his sister back. The boy finds his romantic notion of the gunfighter is false and that Billy is an uncaring and selfish adolescent. And then the youth discovers true heroism in Sheriff Pat, who, after gunning down the outlaw, takes on the challenge of reuniting the boy with his sister. Schur is producing with Nick Thurlow and Sam Maydew.

Schur funded development of both projects and is financing production as well, with his own money and some raised from silent partners. He has several projects behind this one, as he focuses on slate building. Schur, whose past feature credits include the Robert De Niro and Edward Norton-starrer Stone and the Tom Hardy-starrer Warrior, also remains very active in music: Fleetwood Mac has charted as 2015’s top touring artists in the world, in gross revenues and highest average ticket price.

In the California apple country, nine hundred migratory workers rise up "in dubious battle" against the landowners. The group takes on a life of its own—stronger than its individual members and more frightening. Led by the doomed Jim Nolan, the strike is founded on his tragic idealism—on the "courage never to submit or yield."
Published in 1936, In Dubious Battle is considered the first major work of Pulitzer Prize-winning author John Steinbeck.

Drew Live:  Five Minutes with......Vincent D'Onofrio [2000]

Vincent D'Onofrio
DrDrew.Com 2000

Vincent D'Onofrio lies on the floor of his Manhattan hotel room, playing with his 7-month-old son, then gets up to do an interview (which also takes him into another room where he can smoke a cigarette near an open window).

He's in New York to talk about two movies: The Cell, a film in which he plays a serial killer whose brain is invaded by psychologist Jennifer Lopez, and Steal This Movie, a film biography of late political activist Abbie Hoffman. He plays Hoffman and also helped produce the film.

Since his blazing burst into the public consciousness in the 1987-88 season--with Mystic Pizza, Adventures in Babysittin and Stanley Kubrick's Full Metal Jacket--D'Onofrio has built a solid reputation as an actor willing to challenge himself in edgy material. With his sleepy eyes and bear-like build, he's as at home playing a tragic romantic lead (as in The Whole Wide World) as he is playing an alien bug inhabiting a human body (Men in Black) or even Orson Welles "Ed Wood).

While in New York to discuss his newest films, he took Five Minutes to talk with What's your favorite thing to do when no one else is around?
Vincent D'Onofrio: The first thing that comes to mind is reading and smoking. Name a guilty pleasure.
VD'O: Sex. What's your greatest fear?
VD'O: Intolerance. What's your favorite part of your body?
VD'O: My cock. If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be?
VD'O: My arrogance. What was your worst day job?
VD'O: Selling plants in the street. What's your idea of perfect happiness?
VD'O: My children having grown up, surviving and being happy. What's something you're good at that's totally useless?
VD'O: So many things. I'll say sleight of hand. What's your favorite album for a sexy evening?
VD'O: Anything by Marvin Gaye. If they were to make an action figure of you, what accessories would it come equipped with?
VD'O: A gag for the mouth and a diet. Who would you like to trade places with for a day and why?
VD'O: George W. Bush, to find out the truth. What Hollywood star would play you in a film about your life?
VD'O: Oliver Platt. you could choose what to come back as, what would it be?
VD'O: A true artist. When you were a kid growing up, who did you imitate standing in front of the mirror?
VD'O: Clint Eastwood. Name a book you've read recently and liked.
VD'O: "American Rhapsody," by Joe Eszterhas. Name an album you've listened to lately and liked.
VD'O: "On How Life Is," by Macy Gray. Finish this line: If we can send a man to the moon, then why…”
VD'O: Why can't we figure out our country's problems? What will you remember most about the '90s?
VD'O: That I became a man.
