I’ve just spotted the first official picture of Swiss Army Man, the upcoming drama comedy adventure movie written and directed by Daniel Scheinert and Dan Kwan and starring Paul Dano, Daniel Radcliffe, and Mary Elizabeth Winstead:
“Hank (Paul Dano), a hopeless man stranded in the wild, discovers a mysterious dead body (Daniel Radcliffe). Together the two embark on an epic journey to get home. As Hank realizes the body is the key to his survival, this once-suicidal man is forced to convince a dead body that life is worth living.”
How do you befriend a dead body? Any idea?
There’s no official release date yet. but the film will premiere at the Sundance film festival.
Update 1 – Two additional pictures from the film have surfaced online, take a look below:
There’s also a new official plot synopsis:
“Alone on a tiny deserted island, Hank (Paul Dano) has given up all hope of ever making it home again. But one day everything changes when a dead body (Daniel Radcliffe) washes ashore, and he soon realizes it may be his last opportunity to escape certain death. After befriending the corpse and gradually discovering his special powers, the duo go on an epic adventure to bring Hank back to the woman of his dreams (Mary Elizabeth Winstead).
Music video gurus DANIELS, a.k.a. Daniel Scheinert and Daniel Kwan, craft a wholly original debut feature bursting with limitless creativity both in content and form. Their consistently surprising script spans a wide range of emotions: from the ridiculously absurd to a touching exploration of what it means to be human. Not to mention, it’s a musical. Given what are likely to be some of the most unique roles of their acting careers, co-leads Paul Dano and Daniel Radcliffe give their all to a movie that celebrates the wonder that cinema offers.”
