We've already gotten one look at Simon Pegg as an assassin in the forthcoming comedic thriller Kill Me Three Times, and now the film is poised to premiere at TIFF 2014. And to hype up the unveiling of the film at the festival, a special animated poster has been released for the film that also stars Sullivan Stapleton, Alice Braga, Teresa Palmer, Bryan Brown, Callan Mulvey and Luke Hemsworth. This is one is just for TIFF because you'll notice that the smoking matchbook (the only animated part of the poster) says TIFF on it, which is actually pretty cool. Apparently the film is a "must-see" according to TIFF programmer Jane Schoettle. We'll see if that's true soon enough when we hit the Canadian festival. Look!
Here's the animated poster for Kriv Stenders' Kill Me Three Times:
Kill Me Three Times is directed by Kriv Stenders (Australia's hit Red Dog) and written by newcomer James McFarlan. The story follows Simon Pegg as a professional assassin, hired to kill the singer wife (Alice Braga) of a wealthy man (Callan Mulvey). Other characters include a gambling addict (Sullivan Stapleton) trying to pay off his debts through a life insurance scam thought up by small town girl Lady Macbeth (Teresa Palmer), a corrupt cop (Bryan Brown) and a surfer (Luke Hemsworth) trying to save Braga from her would-be killer. The film is premiering at TIFF very soon, but doesn't have an official release date yet.
