Twilight's Billy Burke Provides an Update on Luster
It's been just about a year since we've had any kind of update on Adam Mason's indie thriller Luster, but since one of the stars is The Twilight Saga's Billy Burke, it only makes sense that it would come up during Burke's multiple interviews for the upcoming New Moon.
Burke, who's been plying his trade for years, has become much more of a household name thanks to his portrayal of Charlie Swan (Bella's dad) in the Saga. He recently chatted with MTV and had this to say about Luster:
"I did a film called ‘Luster,’ that was being done by friends of mine, and we threw that one together in 3 to 4 weeks. It’s a psychological thriller. My wife [Pollyanna Rose] is actually in it too," he said with pride. "She plays a crazy movie starlet."
Of special note is that the film features the couple's one-year-old daughter in her movie debut. Says Burke, "Bluesey’s got a cameo at the very end; they use her as the baby. I think she was like maybe four, five months old at the time." Awwwww.
Mason regular Andrew Howard (he's appeared in the director's The Devil's Chair, review here, and Blood River, review here) stars as Thomas Luster, a troubled businessman who tries to make sense of a life being driven out-of-control by a force closer to home than he first realizes. When he discovers that the man working against him is another side of his own personality, he is forced to fight back against his manipulative alter-ego as murder, madness, and mayhem combine to take Thomas Luster on the most bizarre and terrifying ride of his life.
Burke portrays one of the characters that Luster encounters and says the film should be coming out sometime next year. We'll be checking in with Adam and providing further updates as they come available.
