5280: The director of Lone Survivor, Peter Berg, revealed that you lobbied pretty hard for the role of Danny Dietz. Why was it so important to you?
Hirsch:
It was important to me to represent Danny to the best of my ability because honoring his courage, commitment, and sacrifice stirred something deep in me. It is what makes me, as an actor, know I am doing something truly worth doing, and I wanted that responsibility to ensure it was done right. I also really liked Danny as a person—he wasn’t any regular type of person or SEAL. He was truly unique.

Tell me about how you prepared physically, mentally, and emotionally for the role. In doing your research, what surprised you most about Danny?
Preparation for the role consisted of six days a week training at a place called Pro Camp in Venice Beach, talking with Danny’s friends and family on the phone and through Skype, visiting Coronado and BUDS, reading books and articles, and making sure I was up to the role. Danny had such a loving heart, I would discover. He was a very sincere, determined person.

What was the most difficult part of Danny to capture?
His focus and his physicality were the hardest parts to capture because he had so much of both qualities.

What were you most nervous, or concerned about, in terms of how the film would be received by Danny’s family?

I knew no matter what I did, they would never be able to see Danny when they saw me onscreen. It’s impossible. People are too unique. I told his family that in advance, and I think they appreciated my honesty about that part of the process. I did want them to feel like Danny was portrayed in an honest and true-to-life way, and not feel like it was a false version or a Hollywood treatment. That was very important to me.

Zoe Kravitz is having a busy Cannes.

She walked the red carpet for George Miller’s Mad Max: Fury Road, which premiered May 14, and her other film, Dope, will close out the festival’s Directors’ Fortnight section.

Plus, she also stars in Vincent-N-Roxxy, a revenge action thriller now in post-production that Fortitude International is selling at the Cannes market.

The daughter of Lenny Kravitz and Lisa Bonet plays Roxxy, a rebellious woman who has a tumultuous relationship with Emile Hirsch’s Vincent.

Emile Hirsch plays a mysterious newcomer offering to help a nerd stand up for himself.

Craig Roberts, the actor first noticed here in Richard Ayoade’s charming Submarine, returns to that film’s Welsh Nowheresville for his debut as writer-director, Just Jim. Starring again as a high school kid whose fear-filled eyes herald an utter inability to navigate teenage society, Roberts this time gets help in the form of Emile Hirsch, a newly arrived American offering to make him cool. Comparisons to Submarine are not only inevitable but invited here, and they do no favors to a film that contains moments of cleverness and charm but whose script is half-baked. Its pedigree and cast will draw some fest attention, but commercial prospects are slim.

Roberts’ Jim is a familiar sort of outcast, looked at askance even by his family and harboring no secret passion beyond Nintendo and watching the same old films repeatedly in his local cinema. Even his dog abandons him early on. Roberts wallows longer than necessary in this sour existence before introducing new next-door neighbor Dean (Hirsch), whose name is far from the only signifier of mid-50s Rebel cool.

“Maybe you just need to man up a bit, stop being a bitch,” Dean counsels the boy on their first meeting, and he proceeds to coach the boy in male aggression. Where Roberts’s misshapen script gives us too much Act 1, it now shorts us: Jim’s transformation happens much too abruptly to believe, even in the context of a film that sometimes hints Dean is a Tyler Durden-like construct of Jim’s imagination. Soon he is hosting ragers while his parents are away, styling his hair and making headway with the freckly, pink-haired Jackie (Charlotte Randall). But Dean is more trickster than guru, and begins sowing seeds of Jim’s downfall before he’s even a success.

Hirsch earns his keep here, brightening the film substantially before the screenplay points the character toward incoherence. And Richard Stoddard’s deep-shadowed photography suits what might have been a lacerating black comedy about the self-imposed handicaps of boys who have no good reason to be social failures. But things don’t come together for Just Jim, whose eventual moral seems to be that there’s nothing wrong with settling into mediocrity.

EXCLUSIVE: Emile Hirsch (Lone Survivor) and Brian Cox (The Bourne Identity) have signed on to star as co-leads in The Autopsy Of Jane Doe, the English-language debut of Norwegian director Andre Øvredal (Trollhunter). Stuart Ford’s sales-finance-production powerhouse IM Global will fully finance the film through its Octane genre label. Fred Berger (La La Land) and Eric Garcia (Matchstick Men) produce under their Impostor Pictures banner alongside Rory Aitken and Ben Pugh of 42 (Monsters: Dark Continent, Welcome To The Punch).

Penned by Ian Goldberg & Richard Naing, the script has appeared on both the 2013 Black List and its genre equivalent, the Blood List. Cox and Hirsch will play father and son coroners who receive a mysterious homicide victim with no apparent cause of death. As they attempt to identify the beautiful young “Jane Doe,” they discover increasingly bizarre clues that hold the key to her terrifying secrets.

Ford, Matt Jackson and Ben Shields Catlin of IM Global, a subsidiary of Indian conglomerate Reliance ADA, will executive produce Autopsy, which begins production in the UK at the end of March.

In a pre-American Film Market move, Emile Hirsch and Zoe Kravitz have signed on to star in the action crime drama “Vincent-N-Roxxy.”

Keith Kjarval developed the movie and is producing through his Unified Pictures banner in association with Media House Capital. Aaron L. Gilbert serves as executive producer.

Gary Michael Schultz will direct from his own screenplay. Shooting will start in Louisiana in December.

International sales are being handled by Fortitude International, which will present the project to buyers at the upcoming AFM. WME represents the film’s domestic distribution rights.

The film follows a down-on-their-luck pair of rebels who fall in love and fall apart when their violent pasts catch up with them. “’Vincent-N-Roxxy’ is a very personal story for me and, at its core, it is a story about love, family and the unrelenting presence of violence,” said Schultz.

Unified Pictures recently wrapped the comedy “The Driftless Area,” starring Zooey Deschanel, Anton Yelchin, John Hawkes, Aubrey Plaza, Frank Langella and Ciaran Hinds. Its most recent films include William H. Macy’s directorial debut “Rudderless” and comedy-drama “Loitering with Intent,” starring Sam Rockwell, Marisa Tomei and Natasha Lyonne.

Hirsch starred in “Lone Survivor” and Kravitz was recently seen in “Divergent.”
