London Fields marks the feature directing debut of Grammy and MTV VMA winner Mathew Cullen. Set in a near-future world in turmoil, the noirish mystery stars Amber Heard, Billy Bob Thornton, Theo James and Jim Sturgess. Heard plays a clairvoyant whose life is upended when she has a premonition of her own murder.
The movie, which premieres September 18 at the Toronto International Film Festival, is produced by Chris Hanley (Spring Breakers, American Psycho), Jordan Gertner and Geyer Kosinski. Screenplay is by Roberta Hanley (Veronica Decides To Die, Woundings) and Martin Amis, based on Amis’ best-selling novel. Jason Isaacs, Cara Delevingne and Jaimie Alexander also star, and the producers promise surprising cameos. Oscar-winner Guillermo Navarro (Pan’s Labyrinth, Pacific Rim) is the cinematographer. Music is by music by Toydrum, Grinderman and London Grammar.
