'Citizen Jane' Trailer and Poster!

This action-packed remake of 'Citizen Kane' starring Michelle Rodriguez could actually be part of Aaron Burns' upcoming teen angst comedy 'Blacktino'.
Fantastic Fest in Austin, TX has officially kicked off, and there have been several posters found around town for a mysterious movie starring Michelle Rodriguez entitled Citizen Jane. The posters list an official movie website at CitizenJaneMovie.com, where you can watch a teaser trailer for this supposed remake of the Orson Welles classic Citizen Kane. Click below to watch this action-packed peek at Citizen Jane, which was created for Fantastic Fest. Then take a look at the teaser poster as well, plus thoughts on what this "movie" might actually be:

Here's the synopsis for Citizen Jane, which almost sounds too silly to be true:

Citizen Jane stars Michelle Rodriguez as Charlotte Foster Jane, a lethal assassin hell bent on avenging the murder of her parents in this guns blazing, action packed retelling of Orson Welles 1941 classic, Citizen Kane."


The release date that they list for the movie, September 5, 2011, is a Monday. Labor Day, to be exact, and it's incredibly rare for any movie to receive a Monday release. However, September 5 was the exact release date of Citizen Kane back in 1941 and September 5, 2011 will be the 70th anniversary of the movie's release.

Citizen Jane is copyrighted to Urban Arson on its official site, which, after a quick Google search, reveals that the company is actually an anagram for Aaron Burns, a visual effects artist who wrote and directed an indie movie dubbed Blacktino. Which also features Michelle Rodriguez. The Facebook page for Blacktino revealed that Michelle Rodriguez joined the cast on August 6, and it seemed the picture wrapped two days later. Here's the synopsis for Blacktino:

"Blacktino is a dark teen comedy about an overweight half-black, half-latino nerd named Stefan Daily. He was raised by his black grandmother in a medium sized suburb of Austin, TX. Struggling to find his place in a mostly white high school,

Stefan finds sanctuary among the eclectic mix of social outcasts in the school's Theatre Department. In the tradition of the great teen comedies of the last thirty years Blacktino will ensure that the torch of "teen angst" continues to burn bright."


It seems this could very well be a fake movie used for the Blacktino production, perhaps a movie that they watch in the theater department at this fictional high school. Perhaps Michelle Rodriguez appears in a cameo as herself, starring in this fake movie? Or perhaps Stefan gets a part in Citizen Jane after proving himself worthy on stage.

No official details can be found about Citizen Jane, but we'll be sure to keep you posted with any further details on this and Blacktino as soon as we have more information.

Citizen Jane was released September 5th, 2011 and stars Michelle Rodriguez.

Blacktino was released in 2011 and stars Austin Marshall, Devyn Ray, Tiger Sheu, Michelle Rodriguez, Danny Trejo, Jeff Fahey, Daryl Sabara, Dana Wheeler-Nicholson. The film is directed by Aaron Burns.
