Yes, you read that right.. and no, I’m not kidding! Woody Harrelson has announced that he plans to direct and star in ‘Lost in London’, which will be filmed live and screened in cinemas worldwide!
In the trailer for his film, Harrelson admits that “no one has ever been that stupid” to attempt making a live film, but he’s doing it anyway! He goes on to say that the film will be about one of the worst nights of his life, and will also star Owen Wilson and Willie Nelson. Harrelson refers to the film as a “deep, soul-searching comedy” and he sounds like ready for the challenges and obstacles that could be thrown his way on the night.
In an interview with EW, Harrelson also confirmed the film will run for 100 minutes and be shot with only one camera, so the aim is to have one continuous shot. The film will start at 6pm GMT and if the title didn’t give it away already, it will be shot in London.
I really hope this will be screened at my local cinema as I would love to witness how this all turns out. There’s so much that could go wrong on the night, but Harrelson’s determination to get it to work will hopefully pay off.
“Academy Award® nominated actor Woody Harrelson will direct and star in an unprecedented live feature film event, Lost in London LIVE, on January 19. Harrelson, who wrote the feature film “Lost in London,” will also co-star with Owen Wilson and Willie Nelson.”
‘Lost in London’ will screen live in cinemas on January 19th 2017.
