Michelle Rodriguez Gives Citizen Kane The One Thing It’s Always Needed, A Machine Gun

I’m not entirely sure that this is real, but what the hell.

Michelle Rodriguez is starring in an adrenalin-fueled, action-packed remake of “Citizen Kane” called “Citizen Jane”. According to Slashfilm the film was initially announced in conjunction with Fantastic Fest in Austin, where there have been posters, and even a teaser trailer that features Rodriguez screaming, molten lava, and a large machine gun. The release date is listed at September 5th, 2011, the 70th anniversary of Orson Welles film.

Here’s the plot synopsis from the official website.

“Citizen Jane” stars Michelle Rodriguez as Charlotte Foster Jane, a lethal assassin hell bent on avenging the murder of her parents in this guns blazing, action packed retelling of Orson Welles 1941 classic, “Citizen Kane”.

She will do anything for her Rosebud…

Is this real? A joke? Maybe a publicity stunt? I’m leaning towards the this-is-a-hoax-of-some-sort angle, but it’s pretty damn entertaining, regardless. And the poster has Michelle Rodriguez with a bazooka, so…
