Before he appeared in last year’s groundbreaking District 9, Sharlto Copley intended on having a career behind the scenes as a director. He had a hand in Alive in Joburg and also helmed a feature called Spoon that stars veteran actor Rutger Hauer and Darren Boyd. Check out the short teaser trailer below…
Spoon centers on “a man with a medical condition that causes him to black out during moments of extreme stress and leads him to make a remarkable discovery about himself.” The two protagonists in the film are father and son, which adds a nice familiar backdrop to it. There are also hints of supernatural elements that plague the story, which you can see for yourself in the trailer.
We’re not sure if and when Spoon will receive a U.S. release in theaters or on DVD because it’s listed on IMDB as being produced in 2008. What’s the hold up? The film looks intriguing. It has a Silence of the Lambs vibe to it that leaves us wanting more. How does his son react to his statements? As a matter of fact, where is his son? These are questions that need answers.
