Academy Award-nominated actor Woody Harrelson will direct and star in an unprecedented live feature film event – Lost in London LIVE – on January 20th. Harrelson, who wrote the film, will also co-star with Owen Wilson and Willie Nelson. British actor Robert Gillespie plays a supporting role.
This first-of-its-kind film event will screen live in US cinemas and Picturehouse Central in the UK, giving audiences the unique opportunity to watch a film shot in real time.
Loosely based on a crazy night full of real-life events, Lost in London follows Harrelson, playing himself, as he struggles to get home to his family. Run-ins with royalty, old friends and the law all seem to conspire to keep him from succeeding.
Following the presentation, Harrelson will participate in a Q&A live via satellite.
“I’ve always loved theatre and film and wanted to find the best way to merge the two. When I decided to shoot this in real time I realized it wasn’t quite like true theatre because the one piece missing was a live audience. By broadcasting the film live as its being shot I hope to truly blend the excitement of live theater with the scale and scope of film,” said Harrelson.
Screening exclusively at Picturehouse Central in London’s West End – simultaneously with the US release.
