Tim Roth is currently busy cramming in as much movie-viewing as he can in between meeting with his fellow judges on the Un Certain Regard jury in Cannes. But he’s also locked in a new starring role, signing on to lead Jennifer Lynch’s new film, A Fall From Grace.
The movie, written by Eric Wilkinson, finds Roth as a homicide detective tracking down a serial killer. But there’s more to it than that, according to the director. “It’s about a lot of dark, taboo issues, but it’s really a drama about wounds,” Lynch tells The Hollywood Reporter.
She’ll be hoping for better luck than with her last effort, Bollywood horror action thriller Hisss, which faced major issues during production (chronicled in documentary Despite The Gods) and arrived to poisonous reviews. The director also has serial killer thriller Chained awaiting release.
Roth will next be seen in Arbitrage and Broken. He’s got FBI thriller Mobius on his To Do list.
