Though the whole world has been in varying states of lockdown for the past year, the Hollywood machine never stops turning. Only a handful of films have been made and released during the lockdown, Rob Savage’s Host being the most impactful example, but Doug Liman’s Locked Down is one of the biggest to address this strange new world.
We present interviews with Anne Hathaway and Chiwetel Ejiofor for this comedy heist, written, produced and released entirely during the COVID-19 pandemic lockdown. The film was directed By Doug Liman (Edge Of Tomorrow), and written By Oscar nominee Steven Knight (‘Peaky Blinders’), and also stars Stephen Merchant, Mindy Kaling, Lucy Boynton, Mark Gatiss, Claes Bang, Ben Stiller, and Ben Kingsley in supporting roles. Hayley Donaghy asks the questions.
Plot: Just as they decide to separate, Linda (HATHAWAY) and Paxton (EJIOFOR) find life has other plans when they are stuck at home in London during a mandatory lockdown. Co-habitation is proving to be a challenge, but fueled by poetry and copious amounts of wine, it will bring them closer together in the most surprising way.
