Best known as a writer and director (and Orson Welles' great mate), Peter Bogdanovich also likes to indulge his thespian side. This year he's already been in front of the camera for Max Rose, The Healer, and The Tell-Tale Heart, and Bogdanovich is now set to add Too Late to that list. He'll be appearing alongside John Hawkes.
Too Late is the feature debut of Dennis Hauck, whose short films have made him something of a festival darling in recent years. At its simplest, the story involves a private investigator and his relationship with the woman he's been hired to find. We're promised a non-linear narrative though, which suggests that Hauck - who also wrote the screenplay - is aiming to complicate that well-worn trope.
Bogdanovich's role hasn't been revealed so far, but Hawkes will be the detective, following his stand-out roles in Winter's Bone and Martha Marcy May Marlene. The rest of the cast is rounded out by Rider Strong, Natalie Zea, Dichen Lachman and Brett Jacobsen.
Production starts at the end of the month, and Hawkes will immediately follow Too Late with the Elmore Leonard adaptation Switch.
