Demi Moore Joins Tears, Bunraku

Demi Moore has booked back-to-back starring roles in independent films, one a family drama and the other a martial arts movie says The Hollywood Reporter.

The drama, entitled “Happy Tears”, follows a woman (Parker Posey), prone to self-aggrandizement, who returns to her Wisconsin home and must deal with her bitter sister and her father, who suffers from a rare form of dementia.

Moore plays the sister, fed up with dealing with the hateful father. Mitchell Lichtenstein (“Teeth”) penned and will direct.

She’ll follow that up with Snoot Entertainment’s “Bunraku” which Guy Moshe will pen and direct. The story follows a man (Josh Hartnett) on a revenge quest who finds himself in an even bigger fight than he bargained for.

Moore plays the enslaved concubine of a warlord who is forced to marry her captor, whilst Woody Harrelson plays a bartender.

The project mixes puppets, origami, comic books, video games and German expressionism. Shooting commences this month in Philadelphia.
