Kill Me Three Times is an ensemble crime film from Australian Kriv Stenders (Red Dog), featuring Simon Pegg (Shaun of the Dead, Hot Fuzz, The World’s End) as a hitman. The film will have its premiere September 6th, at the 2014 Toronto International Festival. In anticipation, a new poster for the film has been released.
The Festival’s site compares Kill Me Three Times to Pulp Fiction – what with its “looping narrative” and humbly claims it’ll make you “die laughing.”
A dental surgeon (Sullivan Stapleton) with gambling debts and a conniving spouse (Teresa Palmer), a hunky gas jockey (Luke Hemsworth) looking to skip town with his secret lover, a corrupt cop (Bryan Brown), a motel proprietor (Callan Mulvey) who’s become excessively proprietary over his wife: each of these characters has a scheme to realize, and each scheme requires the elimination of the same woman (Alice Braga) — though she seems to have a scheme of her own. Involved in all these sordid transactions is one Mister Wolfe (Simon Pegg), a seasoned professional in the practice of snooping and, for the right price, murder.
The 2014 TIFF runs from September 4th to September 14.
