An, here is the trailer for director Ernest Dickerson (Juice, The Wire)’s upcoming drama, Double Play, which is based on the novel of the same name by Curaçaoan author Frank Martinus Arion.
The film had its world premiere this past January at the International Film Festival Rotterdam (IFFR).
The film stars Lennie James (The Walking Dead), Colin Salmon (London Has Fallen), Alexander Karim (Zero Dark Thirty) Isaach De Bankolé (Casino Royale) and Mustafa Shakir (Quarry, HBO’s The Night Of), Academy Award and Emmy winner Louis Gossett Jr. (An Officer and a Gentleman, Roots), Melanie Liburd (Game of Thrones), Saycon Sengbloh (Tony Nominee for “Eclipsed”), Bronson Pinchot (True Romance) and newcomer Dani Dare (NCIS New Orleans). Jay Wadley (Indignation ) composed the score. The film also includes a stellar performance of classic songs performed by Aymee Nuviola (Celia).
The screenplay was written by Evan Jones and Alaric Alexander Smeets. Lisa Cortés and Gregory Elias produced. Says Cortés, “It was a great privilege to work with an incredible international cast and crew to bring this classic novel to the screen. It’s now especially important to tell inspiring stories that uncover unique and diverse voices that speak to following one’s dreams even amidst the most challenging of circumstances.”
Set in 1973 and 2010, Double Play is the story of Ostrik (Salmon)’s return to his childhood home, and the memory of a fateful day more than 40 years prior. Over the course of that day, and a long-standing game of dominoes, the fates of four men (James, Karim, De Bankolé, and Shakir) are revealed through a journey of love, loss and deadly betrayal. Shot on location in Curacao, the film utilized its surroundings by emphasizing the beauty of the landscape, the music and the people.
The film has yet to be picked up for US Distribution.
