The trailer for The Burnt Orange Heresy has just been released by Sony Classics, which has the legendary Rolling Stones frontman Mick Jagger assume a supporting acting role along actors like Claes Bang, Elizabeth Debicki, and Donald Sutherland.
The Burnt Orange Heresy is based on Charles Willeford’s crime novel of the same title and revolves around the art critic James Figueras (played by Bang) and Berenice Hollis (Debicki), who are hosted by the art collector Joseph Cassidy (Jagger) on his estate in Italy’s Lake Como. Cassidy then convinces the couple to steal a painting by the reclusive artist Jerome Debney (played by Sutherland).
After being premiered at the Venice Film festival last September, the film was also showcased at the Toronto International Film Festival. The film will be opened to the public on March 6th at Los Angeles and New York.
Just after the screenings, director Giuseppe Capotondi said that the film could be Jagger’s final one. “We heard that he was looking for a last film to make and so we sent the script. He liked it and I went to London to see him. It was very unnerving before going in, but he’s just a gentle soul. He wanted to do it and then when he was on set, it was just like any other director and actor. He wasn’t Mick Jagger from the Rolling Stones. It’s working with the legend, but the good thing is that he doesn’t act like one,” Capotondi shared.
Claes Bang also shared his thoughts about working with the Stones icon, saying, “Obviously, before he comes on set, you’re like, ‘Whoa, I might faint when I see him or something. But on the day, if I was sitting there thinking, ‘Whoa, this is Mick Jagger,’ I probably would forget my lines. It’s really about doing the job on the day. In that sense, he becomes your fellow actor on that day. That’s not to diminish anything. But that’s really important to me because otherwise, I think I would go crazy.”
