Patrick Wilson Plays a Sex-Addicted Politician in Trailer for 'Zipper'
"I set out to help people, I never said I was better than them…" Alchemy has debuted the trailer for the sex thriller Zipper, which dramatizes the sexual urges of a man on the cusp of a bright future. Patrick Wilson stars as a politician on the rise who ends up losing everything "due to his inability to fight off his obsessive temptation for other women." This is a thriller because they really play up the angle of "look how deadly this can be to your life!" with all the endless infidelity. The cast also includes Lena Headey, Dianna Agron, Alexandra Breckenridge, Richard Dreyfuss, John Cho and Ray Winstone. This looks interesting, but at the same time I'd kind of rather just go back and watch Joe Carnahan's Stretch again. Give it a watch.
Sam Ellis (Patrick Wilson) is a man on the rise - a federal prosecutor on the cusp of a bright political future. What was meant to be a one-time experience with a high-end escort instead turns into a growing addiction. His moral compass unraveling, his new demon threatens to destroy his life, family and career. Zipper is directed by Mora Stephens, of only Conventioneers previously. The script is co-written by Joel Viertel and Mora Stephens. This first premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year in the Premieres category. Alchemy will release Zipper in select theaters starting August 28th later this summer. Curious?
