    Okay, this is kinda cool... from EW

    About 15 years ago, Woody Harrelson accidentally broke an ashtray in the back of a London taxicab, setting into motion a series of events that would land the actor in jail for a night. And now Harrelson has used that episode from his life as the jumping off point for a watershed event in the history of movies: Lost in London, the first-ever feature film to be shot live at the exact moment it appears in cinemas.

    EW can exclusively announce that Lost in London — written, directed by, and starring Harrelson — will premiere in on movie screens nationwide on Jan. 19. “There has been live theater streamed into cinemas before,” Harrelson, 55, tells EW while on break from a costume fitting in London, “but this is a real movie with 14 different locations and a 30 person cast.”

    His costars, as you can see from the credits in the teaser above, include old buddies Owen Wilson and Willie Nelson. And as if the undertaking wasn’t challenging enough, the 100-minute film will be shot with one camera in one continuous take. (Imagine Martin Scorsese’s After Hours meshed with Russian Ark.) The movie will shoot in London in the middle of the night local time. Its live theatrical broadcast will begin in at 6:00 p.m. PT/9:00 p.m. ET and will be broadcast in more than 550 theaters. (More information can be found at Fathom Events’ website.)

    “No one has ever shot a movie and live broadcast it into cinemas at the same time,” Harrelson says atop of London’s Waterloo Bridge in the teaser. He adds, with that Woody Harrelson wink, “No one’s ever been that stupid — until now.”
