“Two Jacks” centers around two different generations of a family starting in 1992, when a legendary filmmaker returns to Hollywood after a lengthy absence to get financing for a new movie. In a series of wild adventures, he boozes, seduces a beautiful woman and fights with studio execs, winning the money he needs in a poker game.

Twenty years later, the filmmaker’s son (played by Jack Huston) comes to town to make his directorial debut amid curiosity as to whether he’s inherited his father’s gifts. The film’s shooting in locations around Los Angeles. Miller was last seen in “G.I. Joe: the Rise of Cobra” and Huston played Poseidon in “Clash of the Titans.”
