The new trailer for Last Looks is giving off some serious Shane Black vibes – and that’s a good thing. Based on the novel by Howard Michael Gould (who also wrote the screenplay), Last Looks is a Los Angeles set murder mystery starring Charlie Hunnam and the mighty Mel Gibson.
Directed by Tim Kirkby, Last Looks (shot under the title Waldo) is they type of modern day noir that Movies In Focus really enjoys watching – and Mel Gibson looks like he’s having an absolute blast playing the boozy actor accused of killing his wife.
Co-starring Morena Baccarin, Lucy Fry, Dominic Monaghan, Cliff “Method Man” Smith and Clancy Brown, Last Looks opens in US cinemas, On Demand and digital on 4 February 2022.
Charlie Waldo (Charlie Hunnam) is an ex-LAPD superstar who left the force and now lives a life of simplicity and solitude deep in the woods. Alistair Pinch (Mel Gibson) is an eccentric actor who spends his days drunk on the set of his TV show. When Pinch’s wife is found dead, he is the prime suspect and Waldo is convinced to come out of retirement to investigate what happened. The case finds Waldo contending with gangsters, Hollywood executives and pre-school teachers, all in pursuit of clearing Pinch’s name … or confirming his guilt.
