Shot back in 2008 and ultimately abandoned due to financial issues, the producers behind David O. Russell’s drama “Nailed” are still trying to get the project assembled and out in cinemas.
It appears they may succeed though as producer Kia Jam has reportedly finished his own cut of the film which will go by the new title of “Politics of Love” says Screen. Arrow Films have reportedly picked up the 99 minute-long film for a release in the U.K. sometime next year.
In fact the film has already scored a PG-13 rating from the MPAA and is set to be screened today at the American Film Market for potential buyers. Will anyone else bite? We’ll see.
The political comedy has Jessica Biel as a small town waitress who accidentally gets a nail lodged in her head which causes her to have wild sexual urges. She flees her boyfriend (James Marsden) to head to Washington DC where an immoral congressman (Jake Gyllenhaal) takes advantage of her sex drive and political causes.
Catherine Keener, Tracy Morgan, James Brolin and Paul Reubens also star in the film which was shut down four times during production and ultimately abandoned with the crucial scene – Biel’s accident with the nail – left unfilmed.
