The trailer for the noir thriller Marlow, starring Liam Neeson (Schindler’s List, Hostage), Diane Kruger (Troy, Mr. Nobody) and Jessica Lange (American Horror Story), has appeared online.
The video showed the atmosphere of Los Angeles in the 1950s, recreated in the film, and also introduced the main characters of the film – the private detective Marlowe, his wealthy client, left by her lover, and her mother, a film actress.
The heroine Kruger turns to the detective with a request to find out where and for what reason her lover disappeared. A seemingly trivial case turns into a serious and extremely dangerous investigation.
It, apparently, will reveal the truth not only about the detective’s client and her loved ones, but also about the most influential people in Hollywood – those who are better not to mess with, as one of the characters in the trailer notes.
The film was directed by Neil Jordan, best known for Interview with the Vampire and Cruel Game. Written by William Monahan (The Departed), based on John Banville’s novel The Black-Eyed Blonde.
The thriller was produced by Alan Moloney, Gary Levinson, Philip Kim, Patrick Hibler, Mark Fasano and Billy Hines. The cast included Adewale Akinnuoye-Agbaje, Alan Cumming, Danny Huston, Ian Hart and Colm Meaney.
