If you ever wanted to watch Woody Harrelson, Owen Wilson and Willie Nelson hang out live in real time, “Lost in London” will soon grant your wish. A live feature film that will be broadcast in theaters across the country next month, the project — which Harrelson wrote and will direct and star in — looks to be the first of its kind.
“I’ve always loved theatre and film and wanted to find the best way to merge the two,” says Harrelson in a statement. “When I decided to shoot this in real time I realized it wasn’t quite like true theatre because the one piece missing was a live audience. By broadcasting the film live as its being shot I hope to truly blend the excitement of live theater with the scale and scope of film.”
Based on one especially bad night Harrelson had in the eponymous city, “Lost in London” comes to theaters courtesy of Fathom Events on January 19. “No one has ever shot a movie and live-broadcast it into cinemas at the same time,” Harrelson assures us in the 30-second spot. “No one’s ever been that stupid — until now.” Go forth, Woody.
