Linda Cardellini and Paul Walker in The Heaven Project

9 Comments

Good news, bad news, kids. The good news is that The Hollywood Reporter reports that Linda Cardellini is immensely cute and she’s in a movie that has a kick-ass premise. Bad news is that it also stars Paul Walker, who can’t, as of yet, learned to act his way out of a paper bag. Even better news: The movie is called “The Heaven Project”, and it’s about a convict who is sentenced to death, “but wakes up from his execution with a new life in a small Oregon town where he works as groundskeeper at a psychiatric facility. He’s told that he was given a second chance by God, but questions whether that is actually what happened.” Basically, a real mind-fuck movie.

Here’s a better (albeit more abstract) description from IMDB.com:

A harrowing and frightening thriller about a man who has everything he’s ever loved stripped away from him; and to earn his life and family back, he must face obstacles of mystical origins, endure countless tests of his faith, struggle with his own sanity, and explore the depth and the power of his soul.

Geez, I don’t know about you, but that sure sounds like a very demanding role. And it’s being played by — gasp — Paul “Keanu’s Less Talented Twin Brother” Walker???

Anyhoo, the film is written and directed by John Glenn (no, not the astronaut), and co-stars Tony Curran, Piper Perabo, and Bob Gunton.

    Why is everyone so down on Paul? I love his acting, and character. Have any of you watched Running Scared? Hell of a movie. God was in a good mood the day he put Paul Walker together. He looks nothing like Keanu, and he acts nothing like him either. Paul Walker will be the one to bring $ to all involved in this movie he has a lot of fans.

    Sincerely,

    Christy

    i agree. the only think that paul and keanu have in common is that they surf. paul is a much better actor than people think…. for instance…did you see the scene in the movie NOEL where he is standing beside Alan Arkin’s bedside? in the scene paul is perfectly executing a Bronx-esque accent in this beautiful monologue as he is crying and it just BREAKS your heart. he is incedibly believeable. also in noel there is another scene outside where he is also delivering an oscar worthy speech to Penelope Cruz– which will also bring you to tears. all paul needs to do is get a speech coach and learn the queen’s english accent in order to be seriously recognized by the academy. he is an immense talent and i can’t wait to see what he does in the future with his abililty when he is not being cast as the hotty surf boy. i would even venture to say that paul is the next gary oldman– with a sprinkle of denzel. ;)
