Whilst doing a quick search for news on Sienna’s upcoming movies, I came across a new trailer for Two Jacks! This was released by the marketing company, Steady On Productions, in mid-May, alongside an announcement that the film would screen at Cannes Marche du Film, which is the business part of the Cannes Film Festival. Hopefully the film picked up a buyer there.
I hope you all had a fabulous Christmas! Today we get a Sienna Christmas treat of sorts of our own – the first trailer for Two Jacks has been released! The official Facebook page for the film states that “this is not a trailer – it’s a little teaser on film that are distributors made up to give a taste of film”.

Producer Julia Verdin may have scored a winning hand for her newest film Two Jacks, currently filming in LA. Verdin (Stander, Merchants of Venice) is collaborating with Director Bernard Rose (Immortal Beloved, Mr. Nice) on the indie drama based on Leo Tolstoy’s short story “The Two Hussars.” Sienna Miller, Jack Huston, and Danny Huston star in the film, along with Green Hornet’s Jamie Harris, Billy Zane, Jacqueline Bisset and Richard Portnow (Law Abiding Citizen) who recently joined the cast.
“This is a dream project, we’re thrilled to have Sienna Miller on board, she was our first choice for the role of beautiful ‘Diana’ and she could not be more perfect. It’s wonderful to finally get a chance to work with longtime friend Bernard Rose, and amazing actors Danny Huston and Jack Huston also longtime friends.
With a notorious eye for talent, Julia Verdin worked with Rose to bring in top talent for Two Jacks, and is thrilled with the results. “We’ve structured a stellar cast around a great script,” Verdin comments.
Produced under the banner of Julia Verdin’s Rough Diamond Productions, Two Jacks (adapted and directed by Bernard Rose) tells the story of legendary filmmaker Jack Hussar (Danny Huston) who returns to Hollywood to earn financing for his new project. A series of wild adventures take place, he boozes, gambles, seduces a beautiful woman (Sienna Miller) and fights with studio execs, winning the money he needs for his movie in a poker game. The focus shifts forward to years later to the director’s son (Jack Huston of HBO’s Boardwalk Empire, Eclipse) as he attempts to follow in his father’s directorial footsteps.
