Two new clips have been released from Australian comedy thriller, The Mule, and both showcase just how brilliant this intensely dark comedy will be.
The first clip see’s a bit of violence and threats, and it is also quite amusing seeing Walter Bishop from Fringe in a menacing role! The second clip see’s The Mule himself being given final instructions for his dangerous job of transporting drugs. Check out both clips below.
Inspired by true events, THE MULE is directed by Angus Sampson and Tony Mahony, with a darkly comic screenplay by Sampson, Leigh Whannell (Saw, Insidious), and Jaime Browne.
The film stars Hugo Weaving alongside Sampson and Whannell with an ensemble cast including Ewen Leslie, Geoff Morrell, Georgina Haig, Noni Hazlehurst and John Noble.
It’s 1983. A naive man with lethal narcotics hidden in his stomach is detained by Australian Federal Police. Alone and afraid, ‘the Mule’ makes a desperate choice; to defy his bodily functions and withhold the evidence…literally. And by doing so becomes a ‘human time-bomb’; dragging cops, criminals and concerned family into his impossible escapade.
