A first official look at The Burnt Orange Heresy, the upcoming drama thriller movie directed by Giuseppe Capotondi from a script by Scott B. Smith based on the novel by Charles Willeford and starring Donald Sutherland, Elizabeth Debicki, Claes Bang, and Mick Jagger:
“Set in present day Italy, irresistibly charismatic art critic James Figueras (Claes Bang) hooks up with provocative and alluring fellow American, Berenice Hollis (Elizabeth Debicki). He’s a classic anti-hero in the making with a charm that masks his deep ambition, whilst she’s an innocent touring Europe, enjoying the freedom of being whoever she wishes. The new lovers travel to the lavish and opulent Lake Como estate of powerful art collector, Joseph Cassidy (Mick Jagger). Their host reveals he is the patron of Jerome Debney (Donald Sutherland), the reclusive J.D. Salinger of the art world, and he has a simple request: for James to steal a Debney masterpiece from the artist’s studio, whatever the cost.
As the couple spend time with the legendary Debney, they start to realize that nothing about artist nor their mission is what it seems. But James is a man of deep, lurking ambition and he will do anything, from arson and burglary to murder, in order to further his career…
The art world and the underworld collide in director Giuseppe Capotondi’s elegant and erotic neo-noir thriller, The Burnt Orange Heresy.”
I guess the end justifies the means for this man…
The film has yet to get an official release date.
