New Character Featurette for Sci-Fi Thriller Lockout Starring Guy Pearce
01.16.12 by BJSprecher
A new character featurette has been released online that focuses on Snow, the cynical, ascerbic, wrongly-convicted anti-hero played by Guy Pearce at the center of Lockout — or MS One: Maximum Security, as it's called in France — the new sci-fi movie co-written (with first-time feature co-directors James Mather and Stephen St. Leger) and produced by Luc Besson (The Transporter, Columbiana) that takes place in a prison orbiting the earth.
When the president's daughter (Maggie Grace) gets trapped aboard the prison following a riot, Snow is offered his freedom in exchange for her safe return. Of course, the chances of Snow safely infiltrating the orbiting prison, fending off the deadliest-of-deadly inmates who now have the run of the prison, and finding the president's daughter are slim-to-none, but those are just the kind of odds that a "badass" like Snow can get behind. In fact, compared to his incarceration, he considers the job a "dream vacaction." Peter Stormare (Dylan Dog: Dead of Night), Anne-Solenne Hatte (Callback), and Joseph Gilgun (U.K. TV's Misfits) also star.
