Twilight’s Kellan Lutz teaming with Mickey Rourke for Java Heat
Posted by: Brad Sturdivant
Mickey Rourke and Kellan Lutz have signed on to star in the Indonesian action-thriller JAVA HEAT. The film is about a barista that moonlights as an assassin, but the twist is that he kills people by making their coffee extremely hot. Okay, not really, but as ridiculous as this film is, I think the idea of a murderous barista is much better. The official synopsis is below:
At a time when relations between the West and Islam are hot topics , Java Heat stars Lutz as Jake, a reckless tough guy who – like America after 9/11—is bent on vengeance against Islamic terrorists, but finds the world a more complicated place than he can solve with violence alone. Lost in the religious and cultural shock of the palaces, mosques, temples, subterranean labyrinths and red-light districts of Southeast Asia’s criminal underworld, Jake must ally with a cerebral, suspicious Muslim detective. Together they play a cat-and-mouse game against a decadent jewel thief, Malik (Mickey Rourke), who masterminds bombings and kidnappings to collect art, jewels, even little boys and a princess – all in a desperate search for the faded beauty of his own lost youth.
So…ummmm…yeah. I don’t really think I can top that synopsis, but the idea of Mickey Rourke collecting “little boys” is very disturbing to me. I doubt this will hit theaters, so look for it on DVD in a couple of years.
