The Return of Al Pacino : Nazi Hunter, Teamster, Tarantino

Alfredo is about to headline a hot new TV series – and the timing couldn’t be better

Up until Marty Scorsese hand balled him the ball so he could kick some kind of goal again (speaking of Pacino’s role in the upcoming Netflix gangster flick “The Irishman” with Bobby De Niro), Alfredo James‘s career was where Jeff Daniels spent most of the latter half of “Dumb & Dumber”- in the shitter.

But after spending the better part of a decade steering atruckload of steaming manure, usually produced by Emmett/Furla/Oasis (and let’s not forget his turn in the Adam Sandler movie “Jack & Jill”) into Redbox, Pacino seems to have emerged from the stench – and he’s now following up that abovementioned “Irishman” role with what sounds like one helluva new TV series.

The acting great – kids, go back and watch “Godfather II”, “Scarface” or “Serpico” or “Dog Day Afternoon”, even “Sea of Love”, to see how great Pacino can be – will play a Nazi hunter (!) on a new Amazon series that Jordan Peele (“Get Out”) will serve as an EP on.

“The Hunt”, a 10-episode project produced by Peele’s Monkeypaw Productions and Sonar Entertainment, was created by David Weil (‘’Moonfall’’), who will write and executive produce. Alfonso Gomez-Rejon is in talks to direct.

The beauty of a concept, based on an original idea but inspired by real events, follows a diverse band of Nazi Hunters living in 1977 New York City. The Hunters, as they’re known, have discovered that hundreds of high ranking Nazi officials are living among us and conspiring to create a Fourth Reich in the U.S. The eclectic team of Hunters will set out on a bloody quest to bring the Nazis to justice and thwart their new genocidal plans.

The previously-cast Logan Lerman (yep, Percy Jackson) plays Jonah Heidelbaum, who, when his grandmother is slain by a mysterious intruder in their apartment, sets out to track the culprit — only to find himself swept up in the mysterious organization known as The Hunt, a group of justice-seeking individuals dedicated to rooting out the Nazi murderers living in the U.S. under assumed identities. Pacino will play the Nazi hunter who mentors him.

In addition to “The Irishman” and now, “The Hunt”, 2019 will see Pacino front his first Quentin Tarantino movie, too – the highly anticipated “Once Upon a Time in Hollywood”.

Having fallen on such times for the past decade – “Two for the Money”, “88 Minutes”, “Righteous Kill”, “Simone”, “Jack and Jill”, “Stand Up Guys”, “The Son of No One”, anyone? – it’s great to see filmmakers rediscovering their love for a man that’s unarguably one of the best actors of our times.

Welcome back ‘Sonny’!

The cast of ’90s gem “Clueless” reunited at C2E2 at McCormick Place Saturday afternoon to share memories of working on the now 25-year-old comedy classic.

While a couple of cast members were noticeably absent (specifically, Stacey Dash, who played Dionne, and the late, wonderful Brittany Murphy, who left us in 2009), the 2,800 seat hall did get to spend quality time with Alicia Silverstone, Paul Rudd, Breckin Meyer and Donald Faison.

While most of the cast had understandably aged, Rudd seems to be stuck in time.

“I’m 80 years old on the inside.” He pointed to his chest: “In here, pure darkness — and a little moisturizer.”

“They had to knock on Paul’s trailer an hour early because he had to finish sucking the lifeblood out of babies”, said Meyer, who played skateboarder Travis in the film.

While the audience seemed to be gunning for solid word on some sort of sequel, the cast reiterated that the film is  – sadly – going to be rebooted… without them.
