Steve Knight is a man who enjoys taking concerns such as immigration, cultural differences and whether Robert Powell and Jasper Carrott can be an efficient law-keeping team and turning them into effective dramas and thrillers (okay, not the Powell and Carrott bit, but he did co-create silly sitcom The Detectives). His latest script is Closed Circuit, which John Crowley has now brought to the screen. Check out the trailer over at Apple’s site.
Circuit finds lawyers Martin (Eric Bana) and Claudia (Rebecca Hall) thrown together when they’re assigned to be the defence team for an accused terrorist following a bombing in a London market.
As if the high-profile case weren’t enough, the pair also used to be a couple, which creates an extra layer of tension. But they soon learn that their history isn’t what should worry them: it’s their uncertain futures, because a lot of powerful people are involved in the case and they may end up as pawns in a very deadly game.
The likes of Julia Stiles, Jim Broadbent, Ciaran Hinds, Riz Ahmed, Kenneth Cranham and Game Of Thrones’ Isaac Hempstead Wright are part of the cast for this one, which hits the US on August 28 and reaches our screens on November 1.
