Academy-Award nominee Ralph Fiennes has joined the grand old writing/acting team Ricky Gervais and Stephen Merchant‘s in their first feature film together Cemetery Junction. Although shooting just started last month, a short but sweet trailer, or rather introduction video has just been posted for the film.
The trailer doesn’t give you much away, it merely the two directors having a good laugh with Fiennes — who has a surprisingly good sense of humor seeing as they spend the majority of time poking fun at him, in their own Gervais, Merchant way. For any of you who watched the amazing TV show “Extras” you’ve seen their style before, it’s hilarious.
Honestly, I’m already sold on the film. Take a look “trailer” the jump:
Cemetery Junction is a comedy set in the 70s and tells the story of three professional men working at an insurance company, who feel trapped in a small town and dream of escaping it. Freddie (Christian Cooke) wants to leave escape the life he has as a working-class man while Bruce (Tom Hughes) and Snork (Jack Doolan) are happy right where they are. But a meeting with an old school sweetheart (Felicity Jones) forces Freddie and the rest of the gang to make life-changing choices.
The film is set to be released sometime in 2010.
What do you think of the trailier-ish thing?
