“Drive” screenwriter Hossein Amini takes to the director’s chair for this twisty Greece and Turkey-set period thriller boasting the star power of Viggo Mortensen, Kirsten Dunst and Oscar Isaac.
An adaptation of the 1964 suspense novel by “The Talented Mr. Ripley” and “Strangers on a Train” author Patricia Highsmith, the story follows an American con artist (Mortensen), his wife (Dunst), and a stranger (Isaac) they meet while traveling in Athens.
After one of them kills a police officer, the trio enter a high-stakes game with the authorities and one another as they attempt to cover up the crime and flee to Istanbul.
Empire has debuted both the first trailer and a new poster for the film which is screening at the Berlin Film Festival ahead of a May release in the UK. Check out the clip below, and follow the link for the poster.
