Will It See The Light Of Day? Vincent Gallo Reveals New Project 'April' Co-Starring Late Porn Star Jamie Gillis

The Playlist By Charlie Schmidlin | The Playlist August 9, 2013 at 11:19AM

Aside from brief roles in films like “Two Days In New York” for Julie Delpy (see below) or Japanese director Junji Sakamoto in “Human Trust,” Vincent Gallo has so far largely kept his promise of focusing on ethereal self-made works—of the moment and sheltered from the “dark energies of the public.” Along with his discussed philosophy, he denied his 2010 directorial effort, “Promises Written on Water” a proper release, and so when a new, mysterious project appears on the actor’s web site, temper your expectations accordingly.

Vincent Gallo

Aside from brief roles in films like “Two Days In New York” for Julie Delpy (see below) or Japanese director Junji Sakamoto in Human Trust, Vincent Gallo has so far largely kept his promise of focusing on ethereal self-made works—of the moment and sheltered from the “dark energies of the public.” Along with his discussed philosophy, he denied his 2010 directorial effort, “Promises Written on Water” a proper release, and so when a new, mysterious project appears on the actor’s web site, temper your expectations accordingly.

In the “Acting” section of VincentGallo.com, a new film credit has been added at the top—an 88-minute film entitled “April”—with only a few sparse but intriguing details accompanying it. Alongside the predictable credits of  “written, produced, and directed” by Gallo (also playing the lead, “Seth Goldstone”), there is also a co-star, James Ira Gurman. If that actor sounds unfamiliar, it is actually the birth name of adult film star/director Jamie Gillis, who died in 2010—an unfortunate fact that brings up questions surrounding the origins of “April,” and just how long it’s been around (the production year is listed as 2013).

Is 2013 an actual release date? A note of completion? Or simply the finished film that Gallo wanted to let “rest in peace” around the time of “Promises”? As ever with the artist/filmmaker, don’t expect a comprehensive answer any time soon, but hopefully we’ll see some portion of it before he whisks the film off to his archives. (via @cmasonwells)
