Indie Trailer Sunday: Emily Blunt & Rupert Grint in Wild Target
Ohhh boy I love Emily Blunt. Too bad she's already married to John Krasinski. There's a trailer that debuted earlier this week that seems to have slipped under the radar, but I want to make an effort to feature it today before it's forgotten forever. Yahoo (via SlashFilm) debuted the official US trailer for Jonathan Lynn's Wild Target, starring Bill Nighy, Emily Blunt and Rupert Grint as well as Rupert Everett, Eileen Atkins and Martin Freeman. It's kind of a hitman-conmen comedy or something like that. It looks like a fun British flick and Bill Nighy looks hilarious (that mustache!). I'm not sure why this has been so low key, but it looks great.

Victor Maynard is a middle-aged assassin who prides himself on his lethal reputation. But his routine is interrupted when he finds himself drawn to a beautiful thief named Rose, who he takes as his apprentice.
Wild Target is directed by British filmmaker Jonathan Lynn, of plenty great British classics like Clue, My Cousin Vinny, Sgt. Bilko, The Whole Nine Yards and The Fighting Temptations previously. The script was written by Lucinda Coxon (of The Heart of Me) and is a remake of Pierre Salvadori's film Cible émouvante (aka Wild Target). Freestyle Releasing is bringing Wild Target to limited theaters starting October 29th.
