Hopefully everyone is mainlining as much High-Rise as humanly possible right now. For those who already have, it’s time to start talking about Ben Wheatley’s next film, Free Fire, which for a guy like me, could end up being the greatest movie ever made.
Before I get into all that, here’s the first photo from the film:
Free Fire is basically a deal gone wrong shoot-out movie. Like, that’s it. The whole thing is a muscular ‘70s gun movie filled with awesome actors. Above you see some of them - Cillian Murphy, Michael Smiley, Brie Larson, Armie Hammer - but this movie also has Sharlto Copley in it. Imagine living in a world where Ben Wheatley and Sharlto Copley never made a movie together.
I anxiously await a trailer for this film, and after that, I will just anxiously await the film itself. Wheatley has always been a director worth following, but this is the first time he’s worked on a film so geared to my own personal movie preferences. So I’m super game for this.
