PICS - The Limits Of Control


The images below arrived in my email box this morning... they are pics of Isaach De Bankole, on the set of Jim Jarumusch's next feature, The Limits Of Control, in which Isaach De Bankolé stars as a mysterious lone wolf criminal undertaking a job in Spain. Filming began in February 2008, and encompassed locations in Madrid, Seville and Almeria.

Bill Murray, Tilda Swinton, and Gael García Bernal round out the rather impressive cast.

De Bankolé isn't a familiar name, but his face might be. He's one of those character actors, similar to a Jeffrey Wright, who is usually relegated to the periphery in most films he's in, except for a handful of French films (He's from Côte d'Ivoire, the West African country, and former colony of France). This will be the 4th time Jarnusch has teamed up with him; the other 3: Night on Earth, Ghost Dog: The Way of the Samurai, and Coffee and Cigarettes. He has also appeared in Lars von Trier's Manderlay.

He's married to the lovely songstress Cassandra Wilson, by the way.

Glad to see him in a starring role for a change. I'm a Jarmusch fan - especilly of his earlier works. His last 2 films did very little for me.

The Limits of Control will be released theatrically on May 22 by Focus Features - likely in limited release. Mark your calendars. It's on my "to-see" list.

Here are the pics... not much revealed...

    Yep, De Bankole is currently in 24's seventh season. This "Limits of Control" looks like something to watch out for. I loved Jarmusch's "Ghost Dog".
