Amber Heard, Billy Bob Thornton, Jim Sturgess, and Theo James are all set to star in Mathew Cullen’s adaptation of Martin Amis’ futuristic murder mystery novel “London Fields”.
Amis and Roberta Hanley adapted the script in which Heard plays a hypnotic and clairvoyant femme fatale in London’s underworld who sets a plan in motion to fulfil the prophecy of her own murder.
Her web entangles a terminally ill writer (Thornton), a street hustler (Sturgess) and an unhappily married banker (James). The writer convinces her to let him document her manipulations in a book.
Chris Hanley, Jordan Gertner and Geyer Kosinski will produce. Production gets underway today in London ahead of a late 2014 release.
