As "The Artist" star Jean Dujardin prepares to make strides into Hollywood with roles in Martin Scorsese's "The Wolf Of Wall Street" and George Clooney's "The Momuments Men," he's got a nifty little thriller on the way that looks very, very promising. Dare we even say "Inception"-esque?
First reported earlier this year, Dujardin co-stars with Tim Roth and "The Kid With The Bike" and "Hereafter" actress Cecile De France in "Mobius" and this first teaser for the movie is certainly unexpected and exciting. Opening with an eerie explanation of what a mobius strip is, with a very Hans Zimmer-esque score, and followed by a title treatment that recalls Christopher Nolan's hit, this one still stands out as something potentially unique. Written and directed by Eric Rochant (“Love Without Pity”), the picture is set in the high-stakes financial world, and follows a spy tracking down a Russian oligarch facing allegations of money laundering through his own bank. But it seems there is much more at play.
Shot in Belgium, Luxembourg, Ukraine, Russia, and Monaco, "Mobius" opens in France on February 27th. Unfortunately, no word on U.S. distribution just yet but hopefully this preview gets some phones ringing. Watch below.
