Jim Carrey Gets Serious in First Trailer For The Murder Mystery DARK CRIMES
Jim Carrey takes on an incredibly serious role in his latest film project Dark Crimes. The movie is a murder mystery crime thriller, in which Carrey plays a police officer who is hunting down a killer in the dark underworld of sex crimes.
We've seen Carrey make serious films before, but this one definitely looks like it could be his darkest yet. The story follows a police officer named Tadek, "who finds similarities between an unsolved murder and a crime outlined in a book by famed writer Krystov Kozlow (Martin Csokas). As Tadek begins to track Kozlow and his girlfriend, a mysterious sex club worker (Charlotte Gainsbourg), his obsession grows and he descends into an underworld of sex, lies, and corruption to find the shocking truth."
The movie is based on a true story that was told in a 2008 New Yorker article titled, "True Crimes – A postmodern murder mystery", by David Grann. The article detailed "the homicide investigation of a slain businessman and a novelist’s involvement" The script was written by Jeremy Brock (Casualty, The Last King of Scotland) and the film was directed by Alexandros Avranas (Love Me Not).
Dark Crimes will be released April 19th on DIRECTV before opening in theaters and On Demand on May 18th.
