We haven't heard about any movement on THE LAST DAYS OF AMERICAN CRIME for a few years now, but that looks to be finally changing as "hot commercials and video director Anthony Mandler is in talks to make his feature directing debut" with the project.  There's no word as to whether Sam Worthington is still attached to star; the exclusive report by Deadline also states that Noomi Rapace has also been attached to the project, though that's news to me.   

Here's the official music video for "California King Bed" by Rihanna:

The script by Karl Gajdusek (TRESPASS) "takes place in the future, as America responds to a second major terrorism attack by developing technology that eliminates the impulse to commit crimes of any kind. The protagonist leads a heist team that plans to pull off a final job five days before the signal rubs out the criminal instinct."  Mandler is also currently attached to the well-regarded not-about-Dracula script VLAD by Charlie Hunnam, so he now has an interesting choice before him as to which genre project he picks to be his debut.

Hmmm...didn't this "removing the instinct of violance" thing already was touched in 'Serenity'? Although that was a totally different angle. But we all know what happens after this get pass, don't we?

Umm

Is it just me or does this sound like a stupid ass plot for a movie? An idea similar to this worked in Equilibrium because it was a fantasy type world they were in, not America in the near future. I'm supposed to believe that every country in the world used this, because if it was only America I can see every other country taking advantage of us thru this. Probably looking into this too much but the idea sounds pretty lame...

Extra tidbit: I can't think of one. For me, the greatest music video of all time is "Take on me" by A-Ha. I still watch it from time to time. It's really a classic.
