Jude Law Will Be Dom Hemingway
With Richard E Grant in a revenge comedy

Jude Law Will Be Dom Hemingway

Jude Law will be brushing up on his safecracking skills soon. No, we’re not trying to insinuate that he’s turning to a life of crime: he’s going to be playing a personable thief in Dom Hemingway, the latest film from The Matador’s Richard Shepard.

Announced as part of the latest wave of movies looking to drum up either financing or buzz at this year’s Cannes Film Festival, Dom Hemingway is described as “a larger than life safecracker with a loose fuse who is also funny, profane and dangerous.”

The plot finds him freshly released from prison, and looking to collect on what he’s owed in return for keeping schtum about his last job. Richard E Grant is also among the cast, though we don’t yet know what his role will be.

Producer Jeremy Thomas is working with Hanway Films and BBC Films to get the movie made, and Shepard is pencilling in an autumn shoot in London.

Law, who last brought Dr Watson back to our screens for Sherlock Holmes: A Game Of Shadows, already has Joe Wright's Anna Karenina and voice work on DreamWorks’ Rise Of The Guardians under his belt, and is currently filming Steven Soderbergh’s The Bitter Pill.
