Netflix has debuted the first trailer for the an upcoming music comedy titled I Used To Be Famous. Ed Skrein leads the cast alongside newcomer Leo Long with the feature co-written and directed by Eddie Sternberg.
The film is based on to Sternberg’s celebrated short and will land on the streaming service from 16th September.
Vince (Ed Skrein) used to be in the hottest boy band around. Now he’s alone and desperate. An impromptu jam with Stevie (newcomer Leo Long), an autistic drummer with an incredible gift for rhythm, sparks an unexpected friendship. Together they form a unique bond through the power of music.
The cast also includes Eleanor Matsuura (The Walking Dead), Lorraine Ashbourne (Bridgerton, Sherwood), Eoin Macken (Resident Evil: The Final Chapter) and Stanley Morgan (Prizefighter: The Life of Jem Belcher).
This looks really sweet so I’m keen to see what Sternberg has done with his feature debut. This one also gets a brief cinema run prior to the Netflix release, too.
Here’s the trailer.
