Exclusive: Brit Marling and Jack Huston Pair Up in 'Posthumous' Poster

Jack Huston and Brit Marling are quite the affectionate duo in the exclusive poster for “Posthumous.” The debut feature of writer-director Lulu Wang, who was the recipient of the Chaz and Roger Ebert Directing Fellowship at the Independent Spirit Awards earlier this year, the Berlin-set romance follows a struggling artist (Huston) who sees his popularity skyrocket when he is mistakenly thought to have killed himself. Although he decides to keep up the charade by posing as his own brother, his plan is soon put into jeopardy when he falls for a reporter (Marling) covering the incident.

Co-starring Alexander Fehling, Tom Schilling and Lambert Wilson, the romantic comedy-drama should benefit greatly from the pairing of indie superstar Marling and Huston, whose profile is quickly on the rise as he jumps from television’s “Boardwalk Empire” to films such as the upcoming “Ben Hur” remake. 

“Posthumous” world premieres at this month’s 2014 Zurich International Film Festival. The film is currently without a U.S. distributor.
