Lionsgate has debuted a UK trailer for Philip Ridley's Heartless starring Jim Sturgess as a gangster in East London who is tricked into a deal with a demon and then fights to save his soul. In addition to Sturgess, the cast includes Eddie Marsan, Timothy Spall, Noel Clarke, and the always beautiful Clémence Poésy. I first heard about this project two years ago and we're now just finally seeing a trailer for it. Unfortunately it doesn't look that good. I don't know where the story is going or what's happening, but I guess it doesn't look terrible. I like Sturgess enough to see any movie with him in it. Check it out and let us know what you think.A contemporary Faust themed story about Jamie Morgan (Jim Sturgess), a young man with a large heart-shaped birthmark on his face, who discovers that there are demons living on the streets of East London.
Heartless is both written and directed by British filmmaker and playwright Philip Ridley, of The Reflecting Skin and The Passion of Darkly Noon previously. This was shot in East London back in 2008. Lionsgate is bringing Heartless to theaters in the UK in May, but they don't have a US distributor nor an official release date here yet. Stay tuned for more updates on Heartless as they arrive. Anyone interested in seeing it?
