Mickey Rourke, Lenny Kravitz, Rosario Dawson in The Blind Bastard Club

Lenny Kravitz and Mickey Rourke

The Blind Bastards Club, you should definitely remember this title! When I first heard about an upcoming Ash Baron-Cohen‘s (yes, he is the cousin of Sacha Baron Cohen) project, I was like – what’s with that bastard thing these days? But then, I realized that this definitely sounds different, and it’s worth our attention. And, not JUST because Mickey Rourke, Rosario Dawson and Lenny Kravitz are attached to star in the whole thing. They already describe this movie as “a visceral black comedy wrapped in an original love story.” It’s about a congenitally blind man who lives life fearlessly and passionately with his group of fellow blind friends – a film incidentally which will include real blind people acting in supporting roles. It is being described as a Trainspotting for the blind. The BBC or, Blind Bastards Club, is a gang of guys and girls who live life on the edge despite their blindness, going to the shooting range, jumping out of planes, getting into fights in bars and pretending they’re not blind. It will focus on Jake, the leader of the BBC, and Angel, a sighted call girl who rollerblades around the city. They meet by accident and he introduces her to his world as they both look to make the ultimate sacrifice for love. $6 million project, The Blind Bastard Club, is due to shoot in April in Brazil. As we said, Rourke, Dawson and Kravitz are set to star together with Rodrigo Santoro and Riccardo Scamarcio, although there’s still no word on exactly which roles they will take. The film is being produced by Hacienda (Andrew Mysko and Cory Neal) and by Frank Desmarais. The coproducer is Urca (Leo Edde). Executive producer is Donald K Ranvaud of Buena Onda. A major Latin American company is also in talks to board the project. We’ll keep an eye on Blind Bastards Club, make sure you stay tuned! Rosario Dawson Rosario Dawson
