Robert De Niro and Paul Dano start on Another Bullshit Night in Suck City

Mar. 8, 2011by: Niki Stephens

Production has begun on ANOTHER BULLSHIT NIGHT IN SUCK CITY. It's more than just a clever title, it's a film starring Robert De Niro and Paul Dano.

Paul Weitz is directing the script he adapted from Nick Flynn's 2004 memoir. The story centers on, "a young writer, Nick (portrayed by Mr. Dano), who takes a job at a homeless shelter where one night he discovers his long-absent father Jonathan (Mr. De Niro) seeking a bed. Ms. Moore portrays the writers mother Jody; and Ms. Thirlby portrays Denise, a worker at the shelter."

Weitz has been working on this project for awhile, Ive been working on this script for seven years, gone through 30 drafts, and I feel extremely lucky to be making this draft, with this cast, at this studio. Also included in the cast is Dale Dickey (WINTER'S BONE), Lili Taylor (SIX FEET UNDER), Olivia Thirlby (JUNO), and Julianne Moore.

While De Niro was the subject of our "Dear So-and-So" column today, I'd still watch him in anything--except LITTLE FOCKERS.

Sounds promising. As for the extra tidbit, why hasn't anybody adapted Don Winslow's Power of the Dog yet?

Paul Weitz last three movies were pretty terrible. Here is to hope that this movie turns his career around.

I know its being made, but to see it done correctly, I would love to see World War Z. Also Odd Thomas.

something tells me it won't be released under that title

maybe they'll just call it 'Suck City' or 'Another Night in Suck City'.

As for the extra tidbit, i'd like to see an adaptation of 'Snowblind' by Robert Sabbag or 'The Damage Done' by Warren Fellows

'Snowblind' is an incredible basis for a movie! It's one of my favorite non-fiction books of all time.

I don't care for Star Wars novels, but I happened to pick up and read Red Harvest. Great idea for the Star Wars universe. Of course Lucas wouldn't make it a live action film, but maybe an animated film, or even series, would be pretty cool.
