First image of Colin Farrell and Keira Knightley in London Boulevard

06.15.2010

LONDON BOULEVARD is an English crime drama slipping under the radar, but its cast of Keira Knightley and Colin Farrell caught my eye, as they’re two actors I like that haven’t been getting enough work lately if you ask me.

Dutch film site FilmTotaal snagged this first still from the film, along with a longer description of what exactly it’s about. In short, Farrell is an ex-con who falls for a young movie star (Knightley). It’s all directed by William Monahan, who won an Oscar for his DEPARTED screenplay. Not a bad bunch of folks.

Check out the photo below, and the official rundown after that.

GK Films' "London Boulevard" is directed by Academy Award winning William Monahan stars Golden Globe winner Colin Farrell and Academy Award nominated actress Keira Knightley. The London based crime drama also features the acting talents of David Thewlis, Anna Friel, Ben Chaplin, Eddie Marsan, Sanjeev Baskhar, newcomer Jamie Campbell Bower, and Ray Winstone.

Currently in the final stages of post production, the film is produced by the Academy Award winning Graham King alongside William Monahan, Tim Headington and Quentin Curtis.

Based on the book by Ken Bruen, "London Boulevard" is the story of a man newly released from prison who falls in love with a reclusive young movie star and finds himself in a duel with a vicious gangster."

BONUS: She's on my list.

Extra Tidbit: Keira made the right call staying out of the PIRATES sequel. I am still waiting for Farrell's PHONE BOOTH 2 though.

London Blvd. novel?

Has anyone read the book? I'm looking for some reviews on that because I read a draft of the screenplay online and was unimpressed. Especially with the Charlotte character. And her storyline. And the fact that she winds up in bed with the guy two scenes after the "big reveal" of why she's so f'd up. Not very realistic. To say the least. Though the ending made up for that, if I was interpreting it correctly. Seems like a good cast anyway.

I saw Ondine twice. I enjoyed it much more the second time after I new what the twist was and could rewatch it. The Sigur Ros score was freaking amazing too. Farrell kicks ass.

I couldn't hear the score so much. Had to have it turned down while the fam was asleep, but now I want to watch it again. One thing I do enjoy is buying a good soundtrack to listen to...I consider it classical music for the modern era.

Not enough work?

Colin Farrell has been working prodigiously these last two or three years.

Sounds and looks great. Like you Paul, I am also a huge fan of both of these actors and to agree with you again, they deserve more roles. Everything about this movie sounds great, can't wait to see it. Also Farrell was awesome in the underrated Woody Allen flick "Cassandra's Dream".

Soloist...I have yet to see Cassandra. If I remember correctly, it acually came out around In Bruges. I'll have to hunt it down somewhere. Doesn't he play a hitman in that one as well? Plus seeing him paired up with Ewan McGregor will be a treat.
