As far as us here at Movie Ramblings are concerned, we are forever in debt to director Bernard Rose.

After all, this is the guy that brought us one of the best horror films of the last few decades – Candyman.

So we’re always more than happy to keep an eye on what he’s up to, even if it’s a change of pace.

Which neatly brings us to 2 Jacks, set for DVD release in the UK on June 29.

Here’s the synopsis:

2 JACKS is the story of the legendary film director Jack Hussar (Danny Huston), notorious gambler and womaniser, who returns to Hollywood to raise financing for his next film. During a whirlwind night on the town, Jack seduces the stunning Diana (Sienna Miller). 

Years later, Jack Hussar Jr. (Jack Huston) arrives in Tinsletown for his directorial debut and Diana (now played by Jacqueline Bisset) finds her daughter falling for her former lover’s son. As Jack Jr. struggles to follow in his famous father’s footsteps, his impulsive, hell-raising actions are about to teach him a life lesson he’ll never forget…

And we also have the trailer for you:

We’ll be reviewing 2 Jacks in the next week or so, so fingers crossed….
