While Joe Johnston works on his screenplay for NSFW, writer Adam Mason (who co-wrote with Simon Boyes) is gearing up to release his hypnotic indie Junkie, which now has an uncensored trailer, one-sheet and official website.
“‘Junkie’ is a black comedy about two drug addled brothers, Danny (Daniel Louis Rivas) and Nicky (Robert LaSardo).
When Danny wakes up one morning and decides he’s going clean, Nicky’s not taking it lying down, and drives Danny from one insane experience to another as a whole host of bizarre, surreal characters descend on their sprawling, dilapidated mansion, all with grievances to bear, debts to reclaim or trouble to cause.
As Danny’s life spirals out of control he must fight tooth and nail to kick the habit and rescue himself from the personal hell Nicky has consigned him to, whilst simultaneously attempting to repair the deeply damaged relationships with his increasingly bizarre friends and family.”
Mason directed Blood River, The Devil’s Chair, Pig and the forthcoming Luster. This film reteams him with regular Andrew Howard who can also be seen in the I Spit on Your Grave remake from Anchor Bay.
