How you react to Dom Hemingway is completely reliant of how you react to the title character. It’s easy to imagine that some will quickly be on his side, seeing him as a funny and entertaining wide-boy, but there will be plenty of others who will never be able get past the fact Dom is often a complete asshole. It essentially depends on if you find the fact Dom thinks he’s a legend but is actually a mess is oddly charming and empathetic, or whether it just makes him a dick. [Read more…]
It feels like Dom Hemingway filmed an awfully long time ago, but it’s only now that we’re getting the first trailer for the film. And to make up for the wait, they’ve include a little Jude Law butt in the promo!
Jude Law plays Dom Hemingway, a larger-than-life safecracker with a loose fuse who is funny, profane, and dangerous. After twelve years in prison, he sets off with his partner in crime Dickie (Richard E. Grant) looking to collect what he’s owed for keeping his mouth shut and protecting his boss Mr. Fontaine (Demián Bechir). After a near death experience, Dom tries to re-connect with his estranged daughter (Emilia Clarke), but is soon drawn back into the only world he knows, looking to settle the ultimate debt.
It’ll be in UK cinemas on November 15th. [Read more…]
Richard Shepard’s crime drama Don Hemingway only started shooting a few days ago, but the first photo has already arrived. Dom Hemingway will follow the titular character (Law), a larger than life safecracker with a loose fuse who is also funny, profane and dangerous. Freshly released from prison, he’s looking to collect on what he thinks he’s owed thanks to him keeping quiet about what he knew on his last job. The movie also stars Richard E. Grant, Demian Bechir and Emilia Clarke, and should be released sometime next year.
Game Of Thrones star Emilia Clarke is having a busy week, as she’s in the running for the female lead in Captain America 2 and has also just signed on to star in Don Hemingway. Deadline reports that Clarke & Savages star Demian Bechir have signed up to appear alongside Jude Law and Richard E. Grant in the movie.
Dom Hemingway will follow the titular character (Law), a larger than life safecracker with a loose fuse who is also funny, profane and dangerous. Freshly released from prison, he’s looking to collect on what he thinks he’s owed thanks to him keeping quiet about what he knew on his last job. Bichir will play a crime boss who’s based in the south of France, who Law’s character goes to visit. It isn’t clear who Clarke will play, although every movie needs a love interest (well, they don’t, but people insist on having one anyway), so we wouldn’t be surprised if that’s her role.
Richard Shepard (The Hunting Party, The Matador) will direct, who’s previously worked with Emilia on Game Of Thrones.
