Woody Harrelson is set to make history with the world’s first ever ‘live cinema’ movie. The film is titled Lost in London with Harrelson writing, directing and starring in the production.
The movie will center around a true series of events that landed the actor in jail for a night in London. It’s set to be the first-ever feature film to be shot live at the exact moment it appears in theaters.
Harrelson told EW:
“There has been live theater streamed into cinemas before but this is a real movie with 14 different locations and a 30 person cast.”
“No one has ever shot a movie and live broadcast it into cinemas at the same time. No one’s ever been that stupid — until now.”
Starring alongside Harrelson are Owen Wilson and Willie Nelson. And if the project doesn’t sound challenging enough, the 100-minute film will be shot with one camera in one continuous take.

Lost in London will be broadcast live in theaters on 19th January 2017 at 6:00 p.m. PT/9:00 p.m. ET and will be shown in more than 550 cinemas. (More info can be found at Fathom Events’ website.)
