Jason Sudeikis & Maisie Williams in First Trailer for 'The Book of Love'
"This is madness!" "No it's not!" Electric Entertainment has unveiled a trailer for an indie titled The Book of Love, formerly known as The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea when it first premiered. The story is about an introverted architect name Henry, played by Jason Sudeikis, who befriends a homeless teen and helps her build a boat. That sounds a bit weird, but obviously it's a quirky little indie drama about supporting the (crazy) dreams of others. Maisie Williams stars in this, with Jessica Biel, Mary Steenburgen, Paul Reiser, Orlando Jones and Joshua Mikel. This seems to be inspired a bit by the Kon-Tiki story, and it also reminds me of the real story of a girl who sailed around the world - as seen in Maidentrip. Check it out.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for Bill Purple's The Book of Love, direct from ET's YouTube:
Henry is an introverted architect. After the death of his wife in a car accident, he sets out to help Millie, a homeless teen, to build a raft to sail across the Atlantic. The Book of Love, formerly titled The Devil and the Deep Blue Sea, is directed by filmmaker Bill Purple, who is making his feature directorial debut with this film. He worked for years previously as a first or second Assistant Director in Hollywood and directed a few episodes of "Fresh Off the Boat". The screenplay is written by Robbie Pickering and Bill Purple. The film premiered at the Tribeca Film Festival earlier this year. Electric Entertainment will release The Book of Love in select theaters starting January 13th, 2017 early next year.
