Legendary Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger heralds his return to the silver screen with a new movie, The Burnt Orange Heresy, which will premiere on the 7th of September, as announced by its producers.
Director Giuseppe Capotondi casts Mick Jagger, along with Donald Sutherland, Claes Bang, and Elizabeth Debicki, with the film intended to close the Venice film festival, in an out-of-competition setting. The plot reveal is as follows:
“The art world and the underworld collide in director Capotondi’s neo-noir thriller, set in present-day Italy. Charismatic art critic James Figueras (Bang) hooks up with provocative and alluring fellow American Berenice Hollis (Debicki). The new lovers travel to the lavish and opulent Lake Como estate of powerful art collector Joseph Cassidy (Jagger). Their host reveals he is the patron of Jerome Debney (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 Debney, they start to realize that nothing about the artist or their mission is what it seems.”
Jagger was reported to have finished his parts before undergoing heart surgery way back in April, which forced the Rolling Stones to postpone the No Filter tour. He has returned to the stage however, with the tour back on track, making for a conclusive full recovery.
