First Look at Megan Fox With Wings in 'Passion Play'
A new picture from "Passion Play" has been released ahead of its premiere at the 35th Annual Toronto International Film Festival. Though it still focuses on two lead stars, Megan Fox and Mickey Rourke, the shot manages to give the first look at the major female character with her wings while she is displayed in a room with a big window.
In the film, the "Jennifer's Body" babe portrays Lily, a slender beauty with wings who is part of a carnival. "She has wings, so she was sort of an oddity trapped in a carnival act," Rourke has said about Fox's character. "She's been a prisoner her whole life, and she has no understanding of trust. She's very vulnerable and delicate."
Rourke, meanwhile, will be seen as a troubled trumpet player named Nate who finds redemption after saving Lily from a gangster Happy Shannon. Bill Murray takes the antagonist role which was initially supposed to be tackled by Toby Kebbell.
"Bill Murray isn't your typical scary, spooky guy, and there's something very unnerving about a guy with a sort of off-the-wall sense of delivery," Rourke gushed on his co-star. "It's very unexpected. Some of your worst gangsters are guys who were very low-key. I kind of like the fact that Mitch went against the grain and didn't use a Hollywood stereotype."
"Passion Play" is directed and written by Mitch Glazer with Daniel Dubiecki, Megan Ellison and Jonah M. Hirsch on the board of producers. This drama is expected to be picked up for U.S. distribution at upcoming Toronto Film Festival which will start September 9 until date 19 of the same month.
