Jason Clarke is Pissed Down Under in First Trailer for 'Swerve' Thriller
Following breakthrough roles in films like Zero Dark Thirty, Lawless and The Great Gatsby over the past year (as well as a turn in White House Down), Australian actor Jason Clarke is making quite a name for himself. Next year, we'll see him in Dawn of the Planet of the Apes, but before that, audiences can check him out in a thriller called Swerve. The film from down under follows a man (David Lyons) who happens upon a road accident where he finds a dead man, a beautiful woman, and a suitcase full of money. After trying to do the right thing he finds himself caught up in a dangerous scheme and pursued by a crooked Cop (Clarke). The film hit festivals in 2011 and 2012, but it's coming to the US next month, and we have a trailer.
Here's the trailer for Craig Lahiff's Swerve via The Film Stage:
When Colin (David Lyons) happens across a fatal car accident and a suitcase full of money, he soon becomes entangled in the dangerous lives of a crooked local cop (Jason Clarke) and his mysterious wife (Emma Booth). His initial good deed leads to a series of deadly events, and Colin struggles in a game of survival set against the backdrop of the South Australian outback. Craig Lahiff writes and directs Swerve which played at multiple festivals, including the Melbourne International Film Festival and the Hamptons International Film Festival, and Cohen Media will distribute the film in select cities in the US December 6th this year.
