Woody Harrelson Is Going To Live Stream His New Film As It's Being Directed

"No one's ever been that stupid – until now!"

Woody Harrelson is going straight off the deep end with his directorial debut, promising to live stream his film Lost in London to more than 500 cinemas... while its being shot.

Speaking about the project, he said: "No one's ever shot a movie and live-broadcast it in cinemas at the same time. No one's ever been that stupid, until now."

The shoot will begin at 2am on 20 January in London, simultaneously screening in the US at 9pm EST and 6pm PST, with the whole 100 minute feature being shot in a single take across 14 locations in the city.

Harrelson describes the film as "a deep, soul-searching comedy" about "one of the worst nights of my life", based on the time, in 2002, when he spent a night in a London police station after trashing a taxi on the way home from a mad one in Soho nightclub, Chinawhite.

In an interview with Entertainment Weekly, he said: "I love theatre and I love film and I really wanted to figure out a way to merge the two. Then I thought this particular story does occur sequentially and cohesively, so I thought I'd like to shoot it in real time, like live cinema or whatever you'd call it."

Woody also promised to jump from Waterloo bridge if the project failed, which seems a bit drastic. But then who are we to argue with such passionate art?
