Contemporary Film Noir with Smiths Soundtrack by LA Bands Coming Soon


A contemporary noir set to a soundtrack of Smiths covers, performed by LA bands, is looking for a buyer at Cannes this week. Mark Boone Junior (Sons of Anarchy) and Sam Hazeldene (The Monuments Men) would star in the film directed by LA-based British filmmaker Trevor Miller and London musician, promoter, and label owner Sean McLusky. The duo would reach out to bands to join them for the soundtrack, particularly those that frequent The Smell club in downtown LA. The film “tells the story of a surveillance contractor who drifts through Los Angeles at night photographing ‘cheating couples’ and their illicit sexual acts. Crippled by loneliness and alienation, he falls for a jilted wife and unwittingly photographs her husband burying the body of dead girl in the high desert plunging him into a morass of intrigue, deception and murder.” Does the promise of Smiths songs, underground bands, and noir thrills intrigue you?
