The world premiere for Daniel Craig’s forthcoming Flashbacks of a Fool has been set for Sunday, 13 April 2008 at the Empire Cinema in London’s Leicester square.
Craig will be attended by Craig as he takes a small break from Quantum of Solace filming. Thanks to a competition currently going on at the official website, fans have a chance to win a pair of tickets to this special event.
Flashbacks of a Fool tells the story of Joe Scot (Craig), a washed-up Hollywood star whose hedonistic lifestyle of sex, drugs and celebrity has taken its toll. Flashback to his childhood and small-town English seaside life set to the beat of Roxy Music and Bowie. Joe’s rites of passage as a young man lay the foundations for the Hollywood dream he goes on to experience. Confronted by tragedy, he is forced to flee in search of a new life, and only now does he finally face up to the ghosts of his past.
‘He’s a movie star, he lives in LA, he’s probably incredibly successful, got a ton of money in the bank, lives in a big house and is exceptionally lonely and sad and is really not kind of dealing with his life,’ said Craig of his character in a recent interview.
‘At the beginning of the movie he gets a piece of really bad news which drags him back into his childhood, to an event that happened one summer, the summer that he left home, and it’s about sort of taking care of business.’
Craig stars in the film alongside Helen McCrory, Olivia Williams, Emilia Fox and Eve. Harry Eden will play the teenage ‘Joe Scot’ in the film.
Directed by Baillie Walsh and produced by Lene Bausager and Damon Bryant, Craig will also be acting as executive producer.
Flashbacks of a Fool opens nationwide on 18 April.
