“Lord Jones Is Dead” follows rival journalists Samuel (Chad Krowchuk) and Vincent (Daniel Janks), and photographer Clive (Jonathan Pienaar) as they stake out a dead-end assignment. Waiting outside of a suburban house for a woman who is alleged to have had an affair with a government minister, all three soon realize they don’t know if they’re in front of the right house or if they have even identified the right girl. Since Samuel is told by his editors not to leave without a story, and Vincent and Clive are told not to leave before Samuel does, the three settle in for a long waiting period until they decide to make the story up themselves. Watch the trailer for the film below.
The film is directed by Austin Andrews and Andrew Holmes. Andrews has previously worked as an editor and a visual effects artist on many previous films, while Holmes has mostly worked as a camera operator and producer. Chad Krowchuk is best known for playing Glen Woodburn in Zack Snyder’s “Man of Steel” and “Batman v. Superman: Dawn of Justice.” He has also appeared in the TV shows “Wayward Pines” and “Aliens in America,” and the teen film “She’s The Man.” Meanwhile, Daniel Janks is best known for his performance in Michael Mann’s “Ali” and Jonathan Pienaar for his performance in “Blood Diamond.”
“Lord Jones Is Dead” will premiere in Canada this July.
