Millenium Films has released a marketing trailer for The Painted Veil and We Don’t Live Here Anymore director John Curran‘s new film, a prison-set psychological crime thriller. Edward Norton stars as a convicted arsonist who looks to manipulate a parole officer (Robert De Niro) into a plan to secure his parole by placing his beautiful wife (Mila Jovovich) in the lawman’s path.
Originally written as a play, and adapted for the screen by Independent Spirit Award-nominated scribe Angus MacLachlan, a Winston-Salem screenwriter and playwright, best known for the 2005 film Junebug and the short film Tater Tomater. A bit of trivia: Zachary Quinto (Heroes, Star Trek) played the lead in the one and only Los Angeles table reading performance of the play in 2003.
It’s a rough cut trailer for exhibitors and marketing, but you’ll get the idea. Watch it now embedded after the jump. Leave your thoughts in the comments below.
