Just kidding! I wish.. But I took a shot at designing a poster I thought would fit the film (that I haven’t seen…) and wanted to share it with you guys!
I know we have a lot of talented Jesse fans, especially in the realm of photoshop and thought it would be cool to get a collection of fan made posters in hopes of bringing more attention to the film? If you make one and submit it, I’ll post it on the main page and in the gallery! No rules, no stipulations.. just pure fan fun. Check mine out below and then send me yours!
Oh wow, how long have I waited to write this post? Well, we finally have the first photos of Jesse as Alice Eckle in David O’Russell’s “Nailed.” She looks completely insane, in the best way possible.
“Nailed” stars Jess, Jake Gyllenhaal, James Marsden, Catherine Keener, and Kirstie Alley. The film has been on hold since it’s final shut down in 2008. Rumors have been swirling that Jesse has finally re-filmed her final scene and that Universal Studios has picked it up for a 2013 theatrical release.
Mr. Jam also produced Nailed directed by David O. Russell (The Silver Linings Playbook, The Fighter) starring Jessica Biel, Jake Gyllenhaal, James Marsden, Tracey Morgan, and Catherine Keener, which is set to be released late 2013.
I am hoping we get an official announcement soon, perhaps around the summer if they are planning a late 2013 release. For now, enjoy these medium quality stills of Jesse as Alice Eckle.
No press release or official statement has happened, but the page has been in limbo since 2010 when they removed the release date and replaced it with “????.” It now shows a 2013 release, when just last week it had the unknown release date.
“Nailed” stars Jake Gyllenhaal, Jessica Biel, Catherine Keener, James Marsden, and Kirstie Alley and was directed by Academy Award winner David O’Russell.
If you aren’t familiar with the films’ rocky past, here it is in a nutshell… Capitol Films promised financing and when David Bergstein was unable to provide the funds and pay the cast and crew, SAG had the film shut down.. several times throughout production. With one final scene to re-shoot, the scene where Jesse gets the nail lodged in her head, the film was shut down for good. After that, the nasty legal battles began that have permanently shelved the film. Not long after the legal battle was settled, Ron Tutor stepped in as producer. Since, K.Jam Media have also signed on as producers and have helped get the film back on it’s feet.
Rumors started flying that Jesse recently filmed her final scene for “Nailed,” but again, no official news had been released. Now it is showing the film will be released theatrically this year by Universal Studios. I really hope that this is true, it would be so great to finally see the film.
Jesse was snapped by paparazzi while out and about in NYC earlier today, looking insanely cute.
It was said she was hanging out with a few gal pals and was later seen hailing down a cab. I’m loving this shoe on her, def one of my favorites she’s ever worn. To check out the four photos I’ve added (so far) click the preview below;
Also, according to GossipGirls, Jess recently finished the remaining scene for “Nailed,” while we should take this with a grain of salt because nothing official has been reported, it’s still a nice dream to have! No other information is available, other than it’s slated for a 2013 release.
Jessica Biel worked with David O. Russell on “Nailed” in 2008, and the film has never seen the light of day. As we all know, this is due to the fact that David Bergstein and Capitol Pictures handled their money poorly, to say the least, and caused the film to wrap up before one key scene was re-filmed. That doesn’t mean that Jesse’s time on set was a waste, for two reasons… One, I still hold hope that I will one day be enjoying the film that is “Nailed.” Two, David O. Russell is an avid believer in Jesse’s talents.
While “Elle” was gathering content for their January 2013 issue, which features the gorgeous shoot by Thomas Whiteside, they caught up with several Directors who have worked with Jessica, including “Hitchock’s“ Sacha Geravasi. In the interview he reveals that before Jesse’s audition, Russell advised him “don’t underestimate Jessica Biel, she’s utterly brilliant.” Gervasi goes on to say that Russell was “absolutely right.”
Gervasi also goes into detail on Jesse’s audition with Sir Anthony Hopkins, saying “she took in stride. She was incredibly prepared, and she gave as good as she got to him. Tony is a force, and Jessica more than matched it. She was so bright and funny and at the same time seriously good. I think she surprised everyone, including Tony. Many great actresses were pursuing this role, but after she left the room Tony looked at me and said ‘That’s it, we’ve found our Vera.’”
