Here’s a great clip from British crime drama The Liability, out across the UK from May 17th.
The story sees Roy, a veteran assassin dreaming of retirement (Tim Roth), paired with Adam (Jack O’Connell), stepson of the gangster Roy usually works for.
Whilst Roy desperately wants to leave the killing game, Adam develops into an enthusiastic and aspirational hit-man.
The pair take a road trip ending deep in a forest, far away from home where Roy executes the target with ruthless efficiency only for the duo to realize they’ve been caught in the act.
A beautiful, mysterious young woman (Talulah Riley) has witnessed the murder and professional code dictates that she must also now be dispatched. As the pair deliberate over killing her, she makes her escape with an incriminating piece of evidence.
Thus begins a cat and mouse chase that ultimately reveals the sinister reason for Adam’s stepfather (Peter Mullan) having commissioned the deadly hit and the true identity of their witness and her reasons for seeking retribution on the gangster.
The Liability is directed by Craig Viveiros (Ghosted) from a screenplay by John Wrathall an is produced by Richard Johns (Truth Or Dare, Shadow of the Vampire, Killing Time) and Rupert Jermyn (Truth Or Dare).
