With the last of the big film festivals of the year behind us, and with celebrated scribe William Monahan's directorial debut "London Boulevard" absent from all of them, it can't bode too well that the film has now been announced to have a November 26th release date in the UK, and a not-promising February 2011 bow in the United States.

With the last of the big film festivals of the year behind us, and with celebrated scribe William Monahan's directorial debut "London Boulevard" absent from all of them, it can't bode too well that the film has now been announced to have a November 26th release date in the UK, and a not-promising February 2011 bow in the United States.

There had been rumblings that the movie was in a bit of trouble with rumors of reshoots and other woes but, for better or worse, the film is in the can and for those of you in the UK, you'll get a peek at it in just over four weeks. But if we're keeping our expectations in check about the film, the soundtrack should prove to be interesting. Collider reveals that Sergio Pizzorno, guitarist of UK rockers Kasabian, is scoring the film. Ok, we actually don't care for Kasabian at all, but we do sit up and take notice when rockers create works for feature films, as it often leads to interesting places. No word yet if the soundtrack will get a standalone release but early word is that there will be some vocals and that one of the songs is called "La Fee Vert (The Green Fairy)."

To refresh your memory, the film is based on the book by Ken Bruen and stars Colin Farrell and Keira Knightley in the story of a man newly released from prison (Farrell) who falls in love with a reclusive young movie star (Knightley) and finds himself in a duel with a vicious gangster. The film landed on our 75 Most Anticpated Films Of 2010 list largely due to the solid cast including Ray Winstone, Eddie Marsan, Anna Friel, David Thewlis and Stephen Graham. We've read the script and loved it, finding it to be a sadder and more original take on the territory staked out by Guy Ritchie in his early years, but it remains to be seen if William Monahan was able to do it justice in bringing it to the big screen.
