'Trucker' Set to Go in October

Monterey Media has acquired all U.S. rights to James Mottern’s Tribeca Film Festival premiere Trucker setting the film for an October 9, 2009 release date.

Trucker is the story of Diane Ford (Monaghan), a vivacious young truck driver, who leads a carefree life of long-haul trucking, one night stands and all-night drinking until the evening her estranged 11-year-old son shows up at her door. Monaghan received much acclaim for her performance, and Monterey acknowledged setting the film up for awards contention in its press release.

“We bought this film because we just fell in love with it, with Michelle’s amazing performance, and with the beauty of James’ script,” said CFO and Managing Partner Jere Rae-Mansfield in a statement. “Our hope is that both audiences and voters will fall in love all the same.”

Of course this should be a second nomination for Monaghan after her masterful work in Gone Baby Gone.

Ant-man Finally Casted?

It looks like Nathan Fillion might be playing a superhero afterall. After being considered for roles in Green Lantern, and Captain America,Fillion (most remembered as Malcolm Reynolds in the cult-hit Firefly) is reportedly in final negotiations to play Dr. Hank Pym in the new Avengers film. It hasn't been stated whether Pym would be Ant-man in the film, or just a S.H.I.E.L.D. scientist, but we're holding out hope.
