First Pic From Dom Hemingway
Jude Law & Richard E Grant go south

14 October 2012  |  Written by James White

Back in Cannes, producer Jeremy Thomas (Sexy Beast, A Dangerous Method) introduced Dom Hemingway, the new film from director Richard Shepard (The Matador). He’d already recruited Jude Law and Richard E Gant to star, and since then Shepard’s been shooting the movie in the south of France. Check out the first picture of the leading pair above.

Dom Hemingway finds Law as the titular, larger-than-life safecracker who has recently been released from prison and is back on London’s streets looking to collect a payoff for keeping his mouth shut about his criminal accomplices while doing porridge.

He heads off with pal Dickie (Grant) to the Côte d'Azur to visit the crime boss (the freshly-cast Demian Bichir) who promised him the money. Naturally, things don’t go quite that smoothly.

Shepard has also added Game Of Thrones’ Emilia Clarke and Jumyan Hunter to the cast, though we don’t yet know who they’re playing.

Bichir most recently cropped up in Savages and has a role in Robert Rodriguez’ Machete Kills. Clarke has been filming Game’s third season (hopefully she knows where her dragons are) and will also be seen in Spike Island. Hunter was part of the Attack The Block cast and most recently worked on Dustin Hoffman’s Quartet.
