Lost in London – Director: Woody Harrelson. Starring: Woody Harrelson, Owen Wilson, Willie Nelson. UK 2017. 103 mins. In cinemas May 1
Back in January, screen icon Woody Harrelson (Natural Born Killers, White Men Can’t Jump) directed and starred in an unprecedented live feature-film event: a movie made on the fly, shot in real-time in Central London in a single take and broadcast live to cinemas across the world.
This is how it went
A comic re-staging of one crazy night in Soho in 2002, Lost In London follows Harrelson, playing himself, as he struggles to get home to his family after a scandal threatens to ruin his marriage. Run-ins with royalty, friends and the law all seem to conspire to keep him from succeeding. Funny, charming and finally quite moving, Woody’s film ultimately proves much more than a dazzling technical exercise.
The scene when Woody can’t remember the hotel phone number was partly ad lib as another actor was late in appearing.
Even though the film was shot in one go there was a lot of rehearsal beforehand to make sure things went right. Director woody Harrelson said they were intense and had to be that way for a smoother shoot on the day and night.
It has a special live screening event in January this year. The one-take shot was broadcast to 500 cinemas in the US and one in UK. The filming was done at 2am
