Doug Liman discusses with us “Locked Down”, a police drama shot during confinement and broadcast on CANAL + this Tuesday, August 17. An interview carried out on Zoom. Obviously.
Before leaving to film Tom Cruise in space, Doug Liman remained locked up, like a good part of the world population since the start of the coronavirus crisis. Except that the director made a film: Locked Down.
Or a drama with police accents in which a man and a woman, played by Chiwetel Ejiofor and Anne Hathaway, take advantage of the confinement to try to rob one of the most luxurious jewelry stores in London. More than its thriller side, it is its painting of what has become our daily life since March 2020 that speaks to us the most, between rare outings and interactions by interposed screens.
Which makes it all the more strange (and appropriate, finally), the fact of discussing with Doug Liman on Zoom about this feature film broadcast on CANAL + from Tuesday, August 17, as part of their section “First” reserved for unpublished opuses in our theaters.
