Finally, we are going to have the chance to watch London Fields Movie and judge by ourselves if the waiting was worth it or not. I personally love when a movie goes to dark places because that encourages the human being to reconsider it’s behavior and it’s values that are so easy to disregard nowadays. And this is exactly what we find in this film, an adaptation of the book by Martin Amis from 1989.
The first screening of London Fields, took place during Toronto International Film Festival on 2015, when then Director Matthew Cullen, happened to watch unauthorized footage such as images from 11-S. This fact lead to a sue against the producers. By that time, Amber Heard -the star of the film-, was divorcing from Johnny Depp allegeding physical abuse and being sued by the producers when she refused to finish the footage. And the way she fight back against this situation was by sueing the producers for using a stunt for the nude scenes, making her look that she accepted to film more nudity scenes than the ones stated in her contract.
After all these matters surrounding the movie, it was expected that the film would never see the light. But fortunately, London Fields will finally have a theatrical release on August as a shorter, reedited cut from the original film. And I cannot wait to watch it! Actors such as Billy Bob Thornton, Theo James, the model Cara Delevingne. A Johnny Depp cameo appearance, and of course, Amber Heard’s role makes me very curious about London Fields. I will post a review on the movie as soon as I have the chance to see it! So stay tuned.
Director: Mathew Cullen
