This one is set in Boston in 1978, where there’s no honour amongst thieves or gangster-types as one group go to buy guns from the other group, and clearly things go wrong as, in this deserted warehouse, it soon turns out into a very funny shootout, as well as a game of survival. And while this looked like a 90-minute movie from the trailer, according to IMDB, it is!
Wheatley wrote the script with his usual collaborator Amy Jump, and the film stars Room‘s Brie Larson, plus Enzo Cilenti, Sam Riley, Cillian Murphy, Armie Hammer, Sharlto Copley, Babou Ceesay, Noah Taylor, Jack Reynor, Mark Monero, Patrick Bergin and the brilliant Michael Smiley, a regular of Wheatley’s.
Free Fire looks brilliant but it’s not out for a while – March 31st, 2017, in the UK.
