First Look: Cillian Murphy and Ellen Page in 'Peacock' Thriller
This isn't showing at Sundance, but it is a film most of you will probably be interested in. We first wrote about Peacock way back in early 2008 (it was also shot later that year). It's a new thriller starring Cillian Murphy and Ellen Page directed by first-timer Michael Lander. The movie is set in the town of Peacock, Nebraska where Murphy plays a man with a split personality, husband and wife alter egos. Page plays a young mother who "sparks a battle" between them. We're not sure when it'll ever be out, but The Playlist found a huge batch of photos on an official website we didn't even know existed. So check them out below.
The IMDb plot description says: "A train accident in rural Nebraska gradually unveils a mystery involving the town's bank clerk." Odd that they don't mention anything about his split personality, but it sounds like that's part of the plot, so we're sorry for revealing that early (although it was part of the news to begin with). This looks very subtle but quite beautiful as well and, of course, very crazy. I can't even tell that it's Cillian Murphy in these photos at all, he looks completely different! But I guess that's a good thing. We'll keep you updated on the release of this. Mandate Pictures is supposed to be putting it out, but we don't know when.
