You reckon you own every DVD of Jake possible, do you? (Zodiac pending). Well, guess what? You don't! So get out your wallets and prepare to be amazed.
Just when I thought it was nigh on impossible for me to get any exclusives anymore, (due the more enthusiastic fans finding out about everything before PG and I), along comes ABBY SINGER.
It's indie! It's budget! It's Sundance! I'm moderately confused!
Abby Singer is a darkly comic tale that chronicles the life of Curtis Clemins, torn between the love of his life and his dream. When Curtis hits rock bottom at the Sundance Film Festival, he calls on his old college chum, Kevin Prouse, now a drunk acting instructor in the throes of a divorce, leaving him the only clue to salvage the remnants of Curtis' deteriorating life. American Movie meets The Player, Abby Singer is highlighted by a panoply of celebrity appearances including Jake Gyllenhaal, Brad Pitt, Jodie Foster, Don Cheadle, Stockard Channing, Jay O. Sanders, Robin Tunney, Roger Ebert, Dave Attell, Mark Bochardt, Mike Schank, Lloyd Kaufman, and many more. (from http://www.myspace.com/abbysingermovie)
Abby Singer is coming to DVD on July 24th. I guess you'll have to buy it to figure out more, but the film's producer Jonathan M Black tells me, '[Jake] was the first star to sign a release. He is a really cool guy.'
As always, MySpace is where it's freakin' at. View the trailer HERE.
