Creepy Stills, Trailer, & Featurette Drop for the Upcoming Jack and Diane
And here I thought JACK AND DIANE was a song about two young lovers made famous by John Cougar Mellencamp!! Well I was wrong. Apparently JACK AND DIANE is an upcoming teen girl lesbian love story … with a werewolf. Yeah, I’m kinda confused too!! JACK AND DIANE is written and directed by Bradley Rust Gray and stars Juno Temple, Riley Keough, Dane DeHaan, Leo Fitzpatrick, and Kylie Minogue. Check out the plot crunch:
Jack and Diane, two teenage girls, meet in New York City and spend the night kissing ferociously. Diane’s charming innocence quickly begins to open Jack’s tough skinned heart. But, when Jack discovers that Diane is leaving the country in a week she tries to push her away. Diane must struggle to keep their love alive while hiding the secret that her newly awakened sexual desire is giving her werewolf-like visions.
Check out the trailer:
The creature effects are done by Gabe Bartalos:
The animatronic design for the skinless beast in Jack and Diane was based on a skinned polar bear head. Since the creature emerges from within Diane’s sexual frustration it opens the possibilities of a new interpretation for traditional creature design. With this in mind, Bartalos and director Bradley Rust Gray intended to create an animal that’s never been seen before: a creature that stems from Diane’s inner desires, and also links the Brother’s Quay’s unique vision of the world inside Diane.
Bartalos worked on films like BASKET CASE 3, GUYVER, GREMLINS 2, FROM BEYOND, and JASON LIVES: FRIDAY THE 13TH PART VI. Not too bad!! Now check out the featurette and some stills below:
Hhmmm; the featurette kinda makes this look like a drama/love story. I hope they’re not playing up the whole “werewolf” angle just to get the horror community to check it out!! We’ll see. What do you think?
