James McAvoy is back to work, starring in a new film from UK director Eran Creevey. He's playing a London detective who is pulled into a huge mess after the reappearance of a criminal he once sought. The film is described by the director as “an epic crime thriller in the mould of Heat or Internal Affairs.” Other descriptions throw in The Last Boy Scout as a touchstone.
The script, also by director Eran Creevy, who first made a name for himself with the cult hit micro budget drama Shifty, placed on the 2010 Brit List of best unproduced British screenplays. It follows detective Max Lewinsky and his involvement in a pretty massive conspiracy plot. Given that the film is styled very much after Michael Mann’s storytelling you can probably get the idea that this is a big, winding story. And with James McAvoy leading the cast it will be a must-see.
Mount James, then impulsively cup yourself between the legs, ???, profit
