Poster: 'Saint John'

An exclusive poster for "Saint John of Las Vegas" starring Steve Buscemi premiered over at Cinematical today and I have it here for you below. Buscemi is an actor that I love and will watch in just about anything, but "Saint John of Las Vegas" sounds like it might be a real solid cinematic experience. Directed by Hue Rhodes and based off a story written by Dante Alighieri 'Saint John' follows an ex-gambler (Buscemi) who is lured back into the game by a veteran insurance-fraud investigator. The movie also stars Romany Malco (40-Year-Old Virgin), Peter Dinklage (Elf), Tim Blake Nelson (O Brother, Where Art Thou?), Sarah Silverman, Emmanuelle Chriqui (You Don't Mess with the Zohan) and Jon Cho (Harod & Kumar Go to White Castle). IndieVest Pictures describes the dramedy as a buddy comedy in the vein of Raising Arizona meets Sideways, that chronicles the subtle, life-changing journey of JOHN, a former Vegas blackjack player, who, as a result of circumstance and forces beyond his control, is inevitably drawn back closer and closer to Sin City. "Saint John of Las Vegas" is scheduled for a late 2009 release. Checkout the poster below...
