It’s been a while since we last had anything on Black Dog, Red Dog, the NYU student project/film collaboration with James Franco which premiered at Sundance Film Festival in 2014.
However, WTRF.com has recently published an interview with Jon Matthews, one of the NYU students who directed the film with Franco back in 2012, who says the film might get released sometime this year:
TSJ: What are some projects you have coming up?
JM: I’m freelancing right now. I just signed on to direct my first feature called Slades, and I have a film called Black Dog Red Dog. Ten of us made the film, including James Franco. He was the producer and instructor at NYU. I made it in film school. I got to direct Oscar winner Whoopi Goldberg and Olivia Wilde and others. It is set to be released this year. I’m trying to do a little bit of everything from documentaries to features to writing. I’m writing like crazy — three feature films, five pilots and a season of a Web series. I just churn them out. I also did three different commercials: Chevy, Ford, Castrol motor oil. I entered it into a contest and it ended up getting picked up by Castrol oil. It will be played across the country.
The Internet Movie Database has also updated the film’s release date to “2015”, although an exact release date or how the film will be released remains TBA.
In the mean time, we’ve updated the gallery with 8 new promotional stills of Chloë Sevigny in the film with co-star Logan Marshall-Green. Take a look!
