A sensual and mysterious Megan Fox – with wings. That alone should warrant multiple film viewings, but throw in some obsessed Mickey Rourke, sassy Kelly Lynch (love her!) and unsettling Bill Murray and you’ve got the new to DVD/Blu-ray flick “Passion Play” hitting shelves on May 31 from Image Entertainment. Rourke plays a washed-up jazz musician on the run from gangster Murray who happens upon angelic carnival bird woman Fox and sees a way to possibly wash his dirty slate clean. Rife with many twists and turns in a noir world where nothing is as it seems, the film is the directorial debut of “Scrooged” and “The Recruit” screenwriter Mitch Glazer. (Who is also married to the ever-timeless Lynch – lucky dog!) Starpulse got a chance to chat one-on-one with Glazer about his journey getting the film to the screen, securing his eclectic cast and the insight behind having a lead character with wings.
Megan Fox has a very ethereal quality in this film that we haven’t seen from her before – was that a conscious decision on your part during the casting and shooting?
Can you talk about Megan Fox’s wings for a moment – how did they either help or hinder in terms of making the film?

Just a head’s up to Megan Fox fans, ‘Passion Play’ is coming to Redbox. Keep a look out June 14, 2011 for the DVD & Blu-ray at your local stores that have a Redbox machine.
Rated R by the Motion Picture Association of America for language, some sexuality/nudity, violence and brief drug use.
Passion Play, starring Mickey Rourke, Bill Murray and Megan Fox will be available on video-on-demand on May 6, the same day that it debuts in theaters, DISH Network said on Wednesday. Moreover, it won’t bear a premium pricetag. DISH said the movie can be viewed in high definition for $5.99 or $4.99 in standard definition. Released by Image Entertainment the so-called day-and-date release would ordinarily have been greeted with anger by theater owners, who are waging a resolute battle against such early releases on video-on-demand. Except that it’s difficult to determine where it will be playing. Online ticket sellers Fandango has no theaters listed for the movie, and indeed Entertainment Weekly reported last month that the movie will be going straight to DVD on May 31 after receiving mostly negative reviews when it debuted last September at the Toronto Film Festival. Los Angeles Times writer Mark Olsen noted at the time that the movie was received by the audience “as something of a spectacular folly.”
I’m definitely going to be ordering it in HD video-on-demand!
Megan Fox’s drama Passion Play will not be heading straight to DVD without a theatrical run. A rep for the film confirms to EW that the off-beat thriller — starring Mickey Rourke as a musician who gets tangled up with a gangster (Bill Murray) and a circus freak (Fox) — will have a limited release in New York City and Los Angeles starting May 6 before heading to home video on May 31. We’ve also got your exclusive first look at the theatrical poster, which hints at Fox’s feathery character without giving much information about the plot. (The tagline “Love is stronger than death” doesn’t help a whole lot either.) The film was widely panned at last year’s Toronto Film Festival, but a theatrical release will let audiences decide for themselves how, well, passionate they feel about it.
