A new The Good Liar trailer has come online and can be watched below. The New Line Cinema drama pairs Oscar winner Helen Mirren (The Queen) and two-time Oscar nominee Ian McKellen (The Lord of the Rings, Gods and Monsters) on the big screen for the first time.
Bill Condon, the Oscar-winning screenwriter of Gods and Monsters, directed and produced the film from a screenplay by Jeffrey Hatcher (Mr. Holmes), based on the widely acclaimed novel by Nicholas Searle.
Career con artist Roy Courtnay (McKellen) can hardly believe his luck when he meets well-to-do widow Betty McLeish (Mirren) online. As Betty opens her home and life to him, Roy is surprised to find himself caring about her, turning what should be a cut-and-dry swindle into the most treacherous tightrope walk of his life.
The Good Liar also stars Russell Tovey (Quantico) and Jim Carter (Downton Abbey).
Greg Yolen also served as producer, alongside Condon. The executive producers were Richard Brener, Andrea Johnston, Aaron L. Gilbert, Jason Cloth, Anjay Nagpal, Jack Morrissey, and Nick O’Hagan.
The creative filmmaking team included director of photography Tobias Schliessler (Beauty and the Beast, Mr. Holmes), production designer John Stevenson (BAFTA nominee, Burton and Taylor), editor Virginia Katz (Beauty and the Beast, Mr. Holmes), and costume designer Keith Madden (Patrick Melrose, Mr. Holmes). The music is composed by two-time Oscar nominee Carter Burwell (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri, Carol).
The movie was filmed on location in London and Berlin. It opens in theaters on Friday, November 15, 2019.
