RUNNING TOWARDS THE FUTURE AWKWARDLY IN HIGH HEEL SHOES
‘I’ve always wanted to make a film where a man and a woman run from danger ever since I saw The Peacemaker, where George Clooney and Nicole Kidman ran from an exploding car,’ said David Bowie’s young father. ‘Her shoes were relatively flat, but her dress was ridiculous.’
Running Towards the Future Awkwardly in High Heel Shoes (While Inappropriately Holding Hands) tells the story of Joe Ordinary (Jake Gyllenhaal) who is thrust into a conspiracy he doesn’t fully understand when he meets Persephone Outòfhisleague who will wear a cocktail dress and be asked to run a lot and sometimes scream, while gradually begrudgingly falling in love with Joe.
‘There are some rules we have to respect,’ said Emma Stone. ‘I always have to run behind Jake and I should look a little mussed up. At some point, I’ll do something ballsy as a sop to the feminists in the audience.’
Running Towards the Future Awkwardly in High Heel Shoes will be released in 2014.
