Empire: Exclusive: Trailer And Poster For Lies We Tell

November 8th, 2017

lieswetell17aBuried secrets have a way of coming back to bite people – even if the secrets they’re trying to protect are not their own. That’s the idea behind Mitu Misra’s new thriller, Lies We Tell, which stars Gabriel Byrne and Harvey Keitel. We have an exclusive look at the first trailer for the film, along with its UK quad poster.

When his billionaire boss Demi (Keitel) dies, chauffeur Donald (Byrne) is given one final job – to wipe out any evidence of Demi’s relationship with his mistress, the enigmatic and beautiful Amber (Sibylla Deen). Donald’s task soon unravels when Amber’s life is threatened, and he finds himself her reluctant protector. Unwittingly drawn into a dangerous urban underworld, he encounters dark, harrowing practices, and a sinister underworld figure who will test him to his very limits…

Positioning itself in the tradition of the original Get Carter and Mike Figgis’ Stormy Monday, the film is based on a story by Misra, with the script coming from Ewen Glass and Andy McDermott. With Mark Addy, Gina McKee and Toyah Willcox also in the film, Lies We Tell will be in UK and US cinemas on 2 February.

Metro: 60 Seconds With Toyah Willcox

October 28th, 2015

metro15aToyah was interviewed earlier this month, in Metro‘s “60 Seconds With”, discussing Aaaaaaaah! and more.

The actress and singer, 57, is starring in a dark British comedy where all the characters act like wild apes.

Your new film, Aaaaaaaah!, is brilliantly bonkers. Why did you say yes to a movie about humans behaving like apes?
It was a clever. well structured, brilliant script with absolutely no respect for anything. It was fabulously complex and incredibly rewarding to do. But I never thought, ‘What the hell have I got myself into?’ because it was a team of really great comedians (including Julian Rhind-Tutt and Julian Barrett) and so they had licence to do something as mad as this.

How do you describe it to your friends?
The first thing I say is, ‘Don’t go and see it!’ I’m 57, so my friends aren’t that much older than me. I said, ‘If you can’t handle vomit, poo, semen, gratuitous sex and gratuitous violence, this isn’t for you,’ and they say, ‘Oh God we’ve got to see this film!’

What was the maddest scene?
It was a kitchen scene. I cook for my husband (musician Robert Fripp) three times a day and so to do the cooking scene was very natural. But to do it where there are no social norms and no hygiene is a very different thing. To do a cookery scene while watching telly with one of the most brilliant interpretations of food porn I’ve ever seen and then to take a crap in the corner – I just thought it was utter genius… Read more…
