Just what the hell is Michelle Rodriguez's Citizen Jane?

09.28.2010

I'm still trying to understand everything behind what your about to witness, which is Michelle Rodriguez in a 70th anniversary action remake of CITIZEN KANE called CITIZEN JANE. There are a lot more weapons in this version.

This trailer was shown in Fantastic Fest, and the film supposedly stars Rodriguez's MACHETE cohorts, Danny Trejo, Jeff Fahey and Daryl Sabara. It has a teaser poster and trailer, neither of which look terribly legit.

After a decent amount of digging, Bleeding Cool has unearthed that this is a fake trailer that will appear in Aaron Burns' BLACKTINO. Burns has been visual effects artist for Robert Rodriguez, and BLACKTINO will be his feature debut. That logline is “struggling to find his place in a mostly white high school, Stefan finds sanctuary among the eclectic mix of social outcasts in the school’s Theatre Department.” I'm curious to see how CITIZEN JANE fits in there, as THAT logline is “The 70th anniversary of the film that started it all. Citizen Jane stars Michelle Rodriguez as Charlotte Foster Jane, a lethal assassin hell bent on avenging the murder of her parents in this guns blazing, action packed retelling of Orson Welles 1941 classic, Citizen Kane. She will do anything for her Rosebud… “

I think I'd much rather see that movie. Check out the trailer and poster below.

 

Extra Tidbit: Rodriguez loves rocking those tank tops.

“struggling to find his place in a mostly white high school..." i'm confused by this new "hispanics v.s. whites" theme of late. then again i still haven't seen machete, maybe its all a big hoot or something.

So a good film like The Experiment headlined by 2 academy award winners goes straight to DVD but this piece of shit gets a theatrical release? Fuck you, Hollywood.

I'm into puns

What would you ... Xanadu !

That got a laugh out of me. Probably will be the only laugh but it's a pretty good laugh.

I'm absolutely fucking sick of seeing Michelle Rodriguez's big, surly bazookas being pointed at me.

Boy, I sure am glad that this lying, drunk-driving hit-and-runner keeps getting work. She'll need the money for when she eventually runs down and kills an innocent person.

Yeah, it's a fake, but eventually, someone will have the terrible idea of making it into a grindhouse feature that won't make any money, much like the ones that preceded it. Rodriguez, hang up the bullshit and get to work in Sin City 2 already.

I am getting tired of these cheap looking CGI action movie imitations. Show some respect to the viewers and create an action movie using real stuntman and not lame CGI settings, characters, and guns.

You should see "The Good the Bad the Weird" if you haven't already. Korean "western" with the actors doing their own stunts and all the effects being practical.

TheWalrus- I saw it two years ago. The stunts and action scenes were definitely stellar enough to make up for the kind of weak story. I also really dug "A Bittersweet Life" now that you mentioned Korean drama/action movies.
