A new film is set to be released that is set to a soundtrack of covers by L.A. bands of legendary British group The Smiths and has Mark Boone Junior (TV’s Sons of Anarchy) and Sam Hazeldene (The Monuments Men) starring in it.
The movie will be the sophmore outing for LA-based British filmmaker Trevor Miller will direct with London music impresario Sean McLusky with U.S. banner Brink films co-producing.
It tells the story of a surveillance contractor who drifts through Los Angeles at night photographing “cheating couples” and their illicit sexual acts. Crippled by loneliness and alienation, he falls for a jilted wife and unwittingly photographs her husband burying the body of dead girl in the high desert plunging him into a morass of intrigue, deception and murder.
LA-based British filmmaker Trevor Miller will direct with London music impresario Sean McLusky producing through the pair’s London based production banner 1234 Films.
McLusky said he is scheduled to put the idea out to post-Punk bands from the Californian city, likely to include musicians who play at the Smell club in downtown L.A.
U.S.-based Brink Films, the label behind Spun, with Mickey Rourke and Jason Schwartzman, will co-produce.
McLusky, who lands in Cannes Saturday to shop the movie to buyers and financiers and play a DJ-set at a pop up version of hot Paris club Silencio, told THR the aim is to shoot in L.A. next spring.
