Whitaker, Law to star in The Repossession Mambo

Forest Whitaker and Jude Law have agreed to star in The Repossession Mambo, the feature film directing debut of Miguel Sapochnik. Despite the title, the movie is a thriller instead of a dance pic; the story, based on a novel by Eric Garcia, is set in a future in which people can buy artificial organs on credit, with dire consequences if they default.

Shooting is scheduled to begin this summer … though it won’t be the only such-themed movie in the works, as shooting for Repo! The Genetic Opera is planned for the fall. For the studios’ sake (and mine), I hope one or the other gets rescheduled. Competing asteroid movies, I understand. Competing ant movies, I can live with. But competing repossession-of-artificial-organ movies? C’mon.
