Jason's New/Old Movie (Deep Below) New Info/Pics!!  
JulieBnhjunkie at The LoVe Shack posted that she found some new info (a full movie summary) and some pics from the movie studio site: zepperstudios.

The Jason production stills, film summary and my thoughts below:

Here are the Jason pics and I included the site's commentary for each pic below the corresponding one. Just click on 'em to get to the 800x600 image.

A quiet moment ______________ getting into character ______ Jason rehearses boat scene

Pretty Jason! And ooh! Once more for the road: Arms. Sigh.

The Summary ...

Will Taylor (Jason Dohring) has nightmares. He dreams of watching his father and aunt being murdered when he was only four years old. Will lives with his troubled uncle Joe Mitchell (Jeff Corbett) because his mother remains catatonic from the attack. Joe, who has his own problems with his girlfriend Sarah (Marina Sirtis), has raised Will since the bank robbery that killed his wife and brother-in-law.

Back in 1990 the whole town of Canyon Hills had to be moved because a new dam was built to prevent chronic flooding. The original town is now at the bottom of the lake.

Will finds out that the stolen bank money was never found and begins diving to recover it and his past. Enter Carl Bennett (Michael Dorn), the bank robber turned murderer. Just released from prison, he is heading for Canyon Hills to recover the money he left behind. Who will get to it first?


And wow is that like the worst trailer ever made. Like ever!?! The movie MIGHT not suck major monkey balls, but you can't tell from that trailer -- honestly, the music, the editing, the everything ... just bad. Barely any dialogue, soft, slightly spooky music over what looks like random shots that offer no cohesion. Just bad, bad, bad. Oy and the summary is pretty badly written as well. Yikes. I sure hope the people who wrote/directed/edited the film had nothing to do with the website because it does not bode well.

Oh my goodness, you are my HERO today.  Lovely photos.  (HOW IS HE SO HOT?  I do not understand this.)

It doesn't bode well, but I know I'm going to watch it anyway.  Black Cadillac has a pretty terrible tagline, and most summaries suck for it, but I was pleasantly surprised by it, and Jason was his usual talented self, so that was a very nice surprise.  I'm crossing my fingers that the same is true of this one.
Arabian: JD_Too Cutearabian on January 14th, 2007 11:10 pm (UTC)
He is very hot. I love him so. The thing about the trailer is there is one shot where it's totally, totally patented Logan pissed about something, being treated like crap and he's about to walk away in disgust, but since it was "Will" too, I'm thinking it's more patented Jason. Hee! See, that's how we can tell what's Jason and what's Logan -- this is now only the second thing I've seen him repeat in performances (the other being the leaning with his arm over his head pressed against a door or wall). Yes, I'm a fan, can you tell?

Oh, yeah, of course I'll watch it. I thought Black Cadillac was pretty decent myself. And yes, Jason was awesome in it (this one line, I don't remember it now, but it was like my favorite delivery ever -- something about wanting his bro's friend to tell about the teacher or something). Now this one, he genuinely does seem to be the main character so we'll get more with him and that's definitely a YEAH! I hope the movie's decent.
zellie: film : black cadillac [fear]leucocrystal on January 14th, 2007 11:17 pm (UTC)
I think it might indeed be patented Jason -- that intensity he can get into when portraying anger.  That's always been one of his more impressive conveyances, I think, because in person you'll never see that out of him, lol.  Was the leaning thing in one of his TV guest spots, or in the film?  Because I know it's going to bug me if he did it in something I've seen, but am not currently recalling.  (Heh, I'm a fan too, isn't it obvious?)

Yeah, my mother (who also really likes him as an actor) made a comment after we watched Black Cadillac, about how it's a pretty mediocre part on paper, but Jason, as he always does, really does great work with it and stands out, even in an ensemble cast.  I remember that line!  ("...Details."  And yes, the delivery was hilarious.)  But yeah, I'm hoping too. :)
Arabian: World of Squee!arabian on January 14th, 2007 11:25 pm (UTC)
Yeah, patented Jason, but from all I've heard about him, I'm assuming it doesn't show up much in real life. He's such a sweetie.

The leaning I specifically noted (cuz it was HOT!) in the 2-part episode work he did for The Division -- called "Zero Tolerance." I gotta get it to my best friend, I have the two-part, minus commercials on VHS and she can transfer it to DVD for me. I think I'll even make a cover for it for her, cuz I'm weird like that. Hee.

YES! It was the "details" line. Just so good. And I know some were annoyed by the higher-pitched voice he used, but I think it was a good choice and he maintained throughout the whole film.
zellie: actors : dohring [giggly]leucocrystal on January 14th, 2007 11:32 pm (UTC)
Hee, not at all that I've seen -- sweetest guy ever.

Heh, I've seen that -- I barely remember it, but I think I downloaded the clips somewhere online, and I remember thinking, "He's even hot in camo in a hostage situation.  That's always nice."  Lmao.  It's like magic!

Personally, I agree; I think adopting the higher voice really did work, especially since he kind of "grew" out of it, just a bit, by the end, but it was so gradual you hardly even notice.  There's also the fact that he was a 21-year-old (I think) man playing a 15-year-old kid, lol.  I have no idea how, but he plays young so well.
Arabian: Guy Lovearabian on January 14th, 2007 11:38 pm (UTC)
I know, SUCH a sweetheart! :D

I downloaded the clips, but kept an eye out for the rerun and I'm glad I did because there are scenes not included and it's actually a really good episode. There's a twist (that you wouldn't have known had you not watched the scenes) and the beginning he's playing a character similar to Logan, but then, it gets deeper. It's cool.

Yes, the higher voice helped in establishing Robby -- and gah, did it HAVE to be my baby brother's name (albeit different spelling)? -- as a young kid. He does do a wonderful job playing young, but I think it's simply that he really uses all of himself to do so. He adjusts his body language, does different things with his voice and facial expressions. He's just such an incredible actor.
zellie: film : black cadillac [fear]leucocrystal on January 14th, 2007 11:47 pm (UTC)
Ooh, I should look out for that, then.  I think it plays on WE, right?  I think I remember seeing The Division listed on that channel in the past...

Oh, I completely agree -- it's not just his voice, or that they'll accentuate the slight baby face quality you can draw out of him at times.  His body language and how he carries himself, everything really does go into it.  That shows a huge presence of mind, and such great awareness of self and character in every scene, and I think that, almost more than anything, is what impresses me about his abilities so much.
Arabian: Little Boy Bluearabian on January 14th, 2007 11:52 pm (UTC)
I'm not sure if it's WE or Oxygen or Lifetime? It's one of those women channels. You'll figure it out, LOL! They do replay it, I know that because I was flipping channels and saw it once (after I'd taped it).

Yes, yes, he's such a COMPLETE actor. Which is why I always buy what he's selling. Maybe if he gets bigger or get a show where he's the main lead and it working 10-14 hours, we'll see a slacking off, but as of yet, I've never seen him NOT give his all. And he's doing it even when he isn't happy with the material (ala, least fave ep = all of season two).
zellie: tv : vmars [stranded]leucocrystal on January 15th, 2007 12:04 am (UTC)
Yeah, it's one of those.  Now that I'm thinking about it... it might be Lifetime.  Meh, I dunno, I'll find it eventually, lol.

Totally.  Thing is, he's so serious and focused on what he's doing -- I remember reading his TWoP interview, and thinking, "Wow, he's really serious about giving his all 100% of the time, doesn't he?" -- I honestly wouldn't expect to see him slacking, even if he were working more.  At least, I'd certainly hope not, lol.  But he's so pleased to be working at all, that he puts all his energy into whatever project he's working on.

And yeah, like you said, he wasn't pleased with the writing of S2, but still, look at all the phenomenal work he did there!  Most impressive.
Arabian: What's not to Love? (Logan)arabian on January 15th, 2007 12:21 am (UTC)
I'm pretty positive it's Lifetime.

I like to think that he wouldn't start slacking too -- I don't think he has it in him, he clearly *clearly* loves the art and craft of acting so much. And it shows.
Moi Mobiasmoimobias on January 14th, 2007 11:12 pm (UTC)
Any idea when this movie will be out? My curiosity is peaked!
Arabian: Feelings Journalarabian on January 14th, 2007 11:28 pm (UTC)
Sigh, no not yet. We had heard November and obviously, that didn't pan out. I just checked IMDB and it says a release date of January 17, 2007, but that's a Wednesday and movies are released on video on Tuesdays and in the theaters on a Friday. Occasionally there is a Wednesday release but only for BIG movies ... which is assuredly is not. So, yeah, I'm thinking there really isn't a release date yet. Sigh.

Its seeing things like this that reminds me of why I still watch VM. Jason Dohring is the only part of that show that brings me joy now, he's so pretty and a brilliant actor....he also has fantastic arms...yes I'm shallow!!
Moi Mobiasmoimobias on January 14th, 2007 11:38 pm (UTC)
Word! He has totally hijacked VM for me....and as much as I love so many of the other characters... (Keith, Mac, Cliff etc) ..... I only really yearn for Logan. Which is really why Veronica needs to get her ass in gear about this asap....because its her show and I don't see or understand her viewpoint because of the acting...and well ...yes... I'm also very shallow.

Anyway... I really can't wait to see the movie.... if only to drool.
Arabian: JD_Crazyarabian on January 14th, 2007 11:40 pm (UTC)
Yeah, if it wasn't for him, I woulda dropped this show like a hot potato probably in Driver Ed, but I can't stop watching as long as Jason is there (although I admit, I did ff through most of the Logan/Hannah scenes -- too painful).
Moi Mobiasmoimobias on January 14th, 2007 11:45 pm (UTC)
Compared to my never ending hatred/loathing of Duncan ....Hannah was a cakewalk for me!

Arabian: What's not to Love? (Logan)arabian on January 14th, 2007 11:47 pm (UTC)
Oh, the only Duncan scenes I watched in S2 had Logan in 'em, so that made about oh, four I watched.
Moi Mobiasmoimobias on January 14th, 2007 11:49 pm (UTC)
the one even close to tolerable duncan scene was the blast from the past makeup but even that pushed all my buttons because to me it wasn't about duncan really wanting to make up but wanting to look like the good guy....grr....i am impressed though with how much i still hate him even after all this time...

Arabian: Don't LIke Youarabian on January 14th, 2007 11:53 pm (UTC)
I've succeeded in putting him out of my mind, all of my VM-male directed hate is for Piz now. He can die. Please. I think my Hannah hate is still so strong because I've had no one to replace her.
Moi Mobiasmoimobias on January 14th, 2007 11:59 pm (UTC)
YES!!! I've transfered my Duncan hate to Piz as well. Grr.
I guess Hannah isn't quite as annoying to me because Logan learned from her, he learned he can't be that person that hurts people just to advance their own cause..... Veronica never learned anything from Duncan, in fact he was the cause of everything that stunted her growth in my view!
Arabian: Hot & Blondearabian on January 15th, 2007 12:22 am (UTC)
LOL! Too true.
WeHo M.afrocurl on January 14th, 2007 11:54 pm (UTC)
Oh lord--this movie sounds bad, but I might see it just for Jason.
Arabian: Surf & Smilearabian on January 15th, 2007 12:23 am (UTC)
I'm not sure the movie will be bad -- it actually does have an interesting premise ... it's just that the summary write-up and the godawful trailer are worrisome. Again, if it's not the same people behind the summary/trailer that are behind the movie (and much more often than not ... it's not), I think it still may be decent. Fingers crossed anyway.

And honestly, bad or not, I'll definitely be seeing it for Jason. :D
A Girl Called Shannon: VM - JD - D'Oh!zimshan on January 15th, 2007 06:05 am (UTC)

*holds head in pain*

But still totally worth seeing just for the JD-done angst. Not to mention...*cough* arms.
Arabian: Naked Backarabian on January 15th, 2007 06:23 am (UTC)
I'm really thinking that we can't judge the movie on the trailer. How many directors/writers do the writing/editing of trailers? Not many at all. So, fingers crossed it will be decent. And hey, it's Jason.
jeannie_bean137: Silhouettejeannie_bean137 on January 19th, 2007 01:14 am (UTC)
That trailer WAS disturbingly bad. It was like "Oh look at this lady closing a shop..." okay.....Poor Jason. He deserves to be in award winning masterpieces not this crap. =[ But anything that gets him into a skin-tight wetsuit can't be THAT bad right?
