Spinning Man: New trailer and poster for Guy Pearce, Pierce Brosnan thriller
A new trailer and poster have debuted for the upcoming psychological mystery film Spinning Man. The twisty thriller features a mix of notable names including Guy Pearce, Pierce Brosnan and Minnie Driver and relative newcomers including Odeya Rush (Lady Bird), Alexandra Shipp (X-Men: Apocalypse) and Freya Tingley (Jersey Boys). The film is based on the novel of the same name by George Harrar.
Evan Birch (Guy Pearce) is a family man and esteemed professor at a distinguished college, where his charm and reputation have made his philosophy class very popular. When a female student named Joyce goes missing, Evan’s previous off-campus dalliances make his wife (Minnie Driver) question his alibi. Gruff police Detective Malloy (Pierce Brosnan) has even more reason to be suspicious when crucial evidence makes Evan the prime suspect in Joyce’s disappearance. Suddenly, the questions Evan faces aren’t merely academic – they’re a matter of life or death.
During production in 2016, the film was originally set to be directed by Peter Flinth (Nobel’s Last Will) and star Nikolaj Coster-Waldau (Game Of Thrones), Greg Kinnear (Little Miss Sunshine) and Emma Roberts (Beauty And The Beast), however a cast and crew overhaul was made in April 2017 which ushered in the present names involved. The film is directed by Swedish director Simon Kaijser (Stockholm East) and written by Matthew Aldrich, who co-wrote the screenplay for last year’s Disney hit Coco. Ellen S. Wander (Marshall) and Keith Arnold (The November Man) tackle producing duties while Lionsgate Premiere is set to distribute the film in theaters.
Spinning Man is set to release in select theaters and On Demand on April 6, 2018.
