Jack Huston Says Film's Fictional Band, The Twylight Zones, May Play The Croisette



We've only just found out about the film's fall release date next year but could David Chase's directorial debut, a rock 'n' roll coming-of-age film previously going by the tentative title of "The Twylight Zones," be unveiled much, much earlier?

Speaking with the NYPost, one of the film's leading stars Jack Huston revealed that not only has he and fellow leads, John Magaro and Will Brill continued their musical ventures as the titular fictional band Twylight Zones after lensing has completed, but that the trio may "play a gig in Cannes." Cannes you say, Jack?

The article follows Huston's comments by noting that it's all "depending on [the film's] festival-circuit plans" but surely that means a Croisette premiere is on Chase's radar, especially with a distribution plan now already in place. As for Huston and his bands' plans? We've seen fictional bands talk about going to the next level before (the various 'Scott Pilgrim' bands talked about it, for instance) so we'll believe it when we see/hear it. Chase's leading men are definitely commited to the cause, though, revealing that they "still jam at [exec. producer] Little Steven [Van Zandt]’s studio every week."

The picture stars the aforementioned trio in the story of about a trio of young Italian-Americans who form a band in '60s New Jersey -- Chase harboured his own musical ambitions in that time period with comedianne/co-star Lisa Lampenelli affirming that notion, revealing at the time of her casting that she was auditioning for the role of the helmer's mother in the film. 'Sopranos' leading man James Gandolfini and rising actress Bella Heathcote also co-star along side Brad Garrett, Christopher McDonald and Molly Price with with former E Street Band member Steve Van Zandt not only executive producing but also acting as music supervisor on the picture.

Whether it be Cannes or the October 12, 2012 release through Paramount Vantage, we can't wait for the return of Chase to pop-culture relevance again.
