Sam Rockwell, who plays Robert's brother, Charley Ford, recently talked to the Calgary Sun, and gave a few more details on the film while out promoting Joshua at Sundance. From the mouth of Rockwell: "I haven't even looped it. They're still editing it." He continues to say that the film was long, so they're making some cuts and "fine-tuning" it. I would assume the film will play like a pitch-perfect masterpiece after over a year of cuts and tuning! The meandering completion of the film doesn't seem to have dashed Rockwell's hopes, and he describes it as a movie with "a lot of indie sensibility."
I'm just going to go out on a limb and say that they're also all smacking themselves for casting Brad Pitt over Christopher Eigeman, like I suggested in November. Look at that picture of Jesse James above. Robert Ford didn't shoot James, the famous outlaw just jumped in a time machine to become a delightfully verbose indie actor!
