Filmmaker Nick Stagliano produced, directed and co-wrote Virtuoso. The thriller, which leverages film noir pillars, provides the film with Oscar-winning Anthony Hopkins among Anson Mount, Abbie Cornish and David Morse, and offers a twist with lone weapons in the tropics.
Before the film was released, Stagliano took the time today to discuss with Martin Carr about his process, choices, and certain influences on the film. Watch the interview here and be sure to follow us on YouTube for more videos and luxury content
Danger, deception, and murder descend on a sleepy rural town as an occupational assassin (Anson Mount) accepts a new assignment from his enigmatic mentor and boss (Oscar® winner Anthony Hopkins). Considering only where and when the mysterious hint is, the methodical batsman must identify his mysterious mark among a number of possible targets, including the local sheriff (David Morse). Meanwhile, an occasional encounter with an attractive woman (Abbie Cornish) in the city’s rustic dining room threatens to weaken her role in this noir-style cloak and dagger trill.
Virtuoso will be available as a digital download on April 30 and on DVD from May 10 at Lionsgate.
