Writer-director returns to the directors chair after 2013’s blisteringly tense thriller Locke, which starred Tom Hardy and just a handful of voices. This time he’s combined the sublime talents of Matthew McConaughey and Anne Hathaway to play ex lovers who hatch a murder plot in Serenity. (Sadly not linked to the 2005 Firefly film if the same name).
After being beaten by her husband one too many times, Hathaway shows up with her son to ask her ex McConaughey, playing a fishing boat captain, to take care of them. With this, she asks a favour in the form of murder. Her plan involves McConaughey taking her husband out on a fishing excursion and leaving him for dead in the shark infested waters. Expected in October, Serenity boasts of a supporting cast including Jason Clarke, Diane Lane and Dijmon Hounsou.
Keep. It. Reel.
