The first trailer for Mindhorn has been released, starring Julian Barratt and Simon Farnaby. Co-funded by Pinewood Pictures and with post production work carried out by Pinewood Post.
Barrett stars as Richard Thorncroft, a washed-up actor luvvie who pines for the past glories of his former career starring as MI5 Special Operative Bruce Mindhorn, a TV detective with an bionic lie-detecting eye that allows him to quite literally “see the truth”. When a delusional killer phones the Isle of Man police saying that he will only talk to Detective Mindhorn, the police decide they have to find the actor who played him to take the killer’s next call and lure him into custody.
Mindhorn is in cinemas from 5th May.
