Oh Christopher Walken, is there no form of visual entertainment that you will not try your hand at? Mid-90s computer games aside, Walken has been in an unreal amount of films, facing off against the likes of James Bond through to The Rock.
But even this next film has me scratching my head. And I saw Click, wherein he played the spookiest angel of death/TV salesperson ever. It’s called The Power of Few, and I have no idea what the hell it’s about.
Bruce Dickinson Walken, Christian Slater, Moon Bloodgood and Anthony Anderson, The Power of Few deals with several varied people crossing paths on one day in five interconnected stories. Not that you would get such an idea from the trailer which runs like a best of collection of crazy clips. Here’s the official synopsis;
Spies, cops, holy fools and well-armed children cross paths on a day of danger, mystery and possible transformation. ‘The Power of Few’ unfolds over twenty minutes on one New Orleans afternoon, experienced through the lives of five unusual characters who unknowingly are connected to an extraordinary smuggling operation as religious conspiracy collides with urban crime.
And according to Indiewire, here are some more ambitiously weird details;
To underline the theme of inter-connectedness, during pre-production of The Power of Few, first-time director, Leone Marucci, who also wrote and produced the film, and producer Q’orianka Kilcher designed and implemented a cutting edge interactive campaign, inviting the global audience to help create the film. Online voters determined key costume, location and character decisions while online casting & editing competitions discovered screen talent worldwide (one role went to a girl from Malta without any prior acting experience!).
I won’t deny that the film at least looks interesting, but man, I hope it’s nowhere near as chaotic as what the trailer made it out to be. There’s no release date for this one yet, but keep your eyes peeled for it.
