Well, holy crap.
Jessica Biel has been quiet on the film scene since 2012. Of course we had “The Truth About Emanuel” and “Bleeding Heart,” but other than that there wasn’t much. Well, that is all about to change.
“A Kind of Murder” and “The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea” will premiere at the Tribeca Film Festival, where “Bleeding Heart” made it’s debut last year. While “Spark” will premiere at The Toronto Animation Arts Festival.
“The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea” has been given the honor of being the opening night Spotlight film.
This is huge for Jess, two film premieres at one festival? That’s crazy.
Here are the official synopsis’ for the Tribeca premieres:
A Kind of Murder, directed by Andy Goddard, written by Susan Boyd. (USA) – World Premiere, Narrative. The Blunderer, written by Carol author Patricia Highsmith, gets a classic film noir treatment in A Kind of Murder, a ’60s-set Hitchcockian thriller that explores how we judge culpability in the death of another. Starring Patrick Wilson, Jessica Biel, and Vincent Kartheiser.
The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, directed by Bill Purple, written by Robbie Pickering & Bill Purple. (USA) – World Premiere, Narrative. Henry (Jason Sudeikis) and Penny (Jessica Biel) are a New Orleans couple very much in love, until tragedy strikes and Henry is forced to rebuild. Quite literally, it turns out.
