Mojave is a new thriller film starring  Oscar Isaac, Garrett Hedlund, Louise Bourgoin, and Walton Goggins. Academy award winner William Monahan wrote and directed the film.

Monohan was a novelist before he began writing for Hollywood. In 2007 he  won an Oscar for his screenplay for The Departed. It will be interesting to watch this film since Monahan is steeped in classical literature and loves Elizabethan and Jacobean literature as he put it in an interview. “I really was educated as the classical ink-stained wretch,” he said in that same interview. “I like film because it’s big, because it’s the art that contains all the other arts. I like it because it’s difficult.”

Mojave is set to release on Jan 22, 2016 in the US.
