Neville Longbottom Gets a Bit Gritty in First Trailer for 'Wasteland'
Today is the first day of the 2012 Toronto International Film Festival, and our own Alex Billington is already in Canada, getting ready to give us all the buzz from the fest. Over the next week and a half, we'll be catching sneak peeks and reviews of the films playing, and another one just popped up on our radar. Wasteland is a British thriller about a young ex-con who hooks up with his best mates to embark on a wild and risky revenge scheme after being framed by a local drug kingpin. You'll notice Harry Potter cast member Matthew Lewis (Neville Longbottom) in the supporting cast with Luke Treadaway (Attack the Block) in the lead role. It looks very gritty, and TIFF describes it as Ocean's Eleven meets The Usual Suspects. Watch!
Following an emotional reunion with his best friends, Harvey Miller (Luke Treadaway of Attack the Block) sets about finding the girl he left behind, determined to rekindle their romance. What follows is the ingenious and elaborate blueprint of a master plan which Harvey hopes will deliver revenge on an old adversary as well as giving him and his friends the opportunity to start a new life abroad. Iwan Rheon, Gerard Kearns, Matthew Lewis, Vanessa Kirby, and Neil Maskell co-star in the film written and directed by Rowan Athale. The film is premiering at TIFF 2012, but has no official release date set yet. Looking good?
