Him in a Gondry film mesh perfectly. Good pick.

Yeah, I know. I was thinking of doing someone more serious, but then I was like Shia Labeouf would be perfect as the role in my movie. I think my pick of actors/actresses will be semi-easy because I'm doing a light-hearted film with a serious undertone.

Paul

As unoriginal and uncreative as it seem, there's a good chance I will be doing a crime drama/ganster/Shoot'em up type movie.

I thought I had less time for my pick. =(

Then again, most of my cast is going to be people that probably no one else with draft just because of the style of movie I am going for. I already know who my leading co-star is and I am 99.9999% sure that no one will cast her. I just hope we can pick this thing up and finish it before this weekend.

Regarding the Warsaw Ghetto, While there was no one main leader, there were many men you can use. Also I think it would be very interesting and neccesary to show the help that the Polish gave to the Ghetto. I find the Warsaw Ghetto uprising one of the most amazing and inspirational stories, it is quite amazing it took the Nazis more time to overtake the Warsaw Ghetto than it did to conquer to Poland

It is much more important to pick the characters that fit the style of the film you want rather than just throw a big-name cast together. Just look at my cast. =D

Very true, which is why after my big 3 (Hirsch, DiCaprio and Wahlberg) I have gone for 3 actors (Mortensen, Casey Affleck and Pepper) who fit the type of movie I want to create. I'm just trying to figure out if my movie should have a female role. At this stage I'm leaning towards leaving one out because I don't really want some crappy romance thingy going on..

Plot.Summaery//
Brothers, Sean Sullivan (Edward Norton) and Joshua Sullivan (Brad Pitt), reunite in Chicago for their father’s (Robert Duvall) funeral. This would be the first time in 5 years that they will see or talk to each other; since the day Joshua was caught having an affair with Sean’s the fiancée, Karen (Rashida Jones). We would later find out that Joshua and Karen married and had child, leaving Sean ignorant of the news.

After separate meetings with homicide detectives Martin Thompson (Don Cheadle) and William Pierce (Matt Damon), each brother grows suspicious of the others possible involvement in the murder of their father. And with Sean growing more and more jealous of seeing his brother living the life he was suppose to have, he begins to give the detectives more reason to suspect Joshua, an act he would later feel extreme guilty about. Pierce a childhood friend of the brothers, suspects more involvement from Sean due to his history of violence, petty crimes and strain relationship with his father.

Later in another meeting between the brothers, Joshua reveals to Sean that he is actually married to Karen. Though obviously upset by the news, Sean congratulates Joshua. But things do take turn for the worst when Sean is invited to Joshua’s house where he not only sees Karen for the first time in years, but also sees that he has a new baby niece. Visibly disturbed and distressed from seeing his brother having the life he was supposed to have, Sean leaves, fighting the urge to strike his brother.

We then see Sean standing outside of Joshua’s house. He notices it is empty with no lights or sounds, until he sees Karen’s silhouette in the bedroom window. With all the rage and jealousy he has pent the past few weeks, he finally snaps and breaks into the house and forces himself onto Karen. With the baby crying in the cradle next to the bed and Karen screaming in pain, Sean takes himself off and finds himself disgusted and shocked from what he has just done.

As the story progresses we see the brothers in a physical confrontation, leading to Sean to pull out a gun. Here, Sean in a moment of guilt admits to Joshua that he was the one who killed their father, but also reveals the reason. As kids we learn that Sean was constantly sexually abused and raped by their father, with Joshua being totally oblivious. There were times where Joshua was sound asleep at night, as his father gagged and abused Sean while in the same room.

(In a flashback we see Sean in his Father’s house the night of the murder, as he puts a pillow over his head(To muffle the shot) and shoots his him. )

Joshua, shaken and distressed by the news, reaches out for his brother and the gun , until we hear gun shot. We see Sean collapse, and Pierce standing behind him with a smoking gun.
