You all know and love Thomas Jane as an actor, but did you know that he had aspirations of being a director?

It’s true, and he’s already directed his first feature, Dark Country. It’s a 3D noir film that he stars in alongside Ron Perlman (they must really love working together!) and Lauren German. The film’s about “A couple en route from Las Vegas are forced to deal with a body out in the desert making their honeymoon one hellish ride.

Jane talked to STYD about the project a couple of years ago, and stressed that the 3D effect wouldn’t be gimmicky.

“We’re going for the effect that Hitchcock used when he made ‘Dial M for Murder’ than what we saw in Vincent Price’s ‘House of Wax.’ It’s a more sophisticated use of the technology which is what we’re striving for. Up until now we’ve seen all of this PG-13 stuff so I want to do an R-rated adult-oriented 3D thriller.”

It’s definitely got an interesting look. The film’s been picked up by Sony but has no release date just yet- we’ll let you know when we do. Head on over to Quiet Earth to see the rest of the stills.
