I doubt, there will be a lot of info during shopting, but he had to promote it at some Point.
The top notch acting in the Weisz/Craig/Spall 'Betrayal' is emotionally true, often v funny and its beautifully staged with filmic qualities..

It's only a small independent film. Shooting started Dec 27 and was due to last approximately 8 weeks. Looks like they finished quicker than anticipated.

If it's 90 minutes long or less and there's not much in the way of special effects, I guess they could finish quite fast.... :)

:shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: :shock: THAT WAS QUICK!!! Good grief - the last performance of Othello was January 18! And he surely got several million for his acting. Nice gig if you can get it! Maybe they filmed a lot before he got there and filled him into the scenes where he needed to be. IDK.

The budget for this movie would be tiny, I doubt that he got paid very much tbh.

I agree with you Sylvia. He may even have got a royalty deal in lieu. Sometimes for small pictures it's the only way to get names - as they haven't got the cash. He can pick and choose the roles he wants. I'm sure he's offered loads of scripts.

The Orchard Acquiring ‘Kings’; Halle Berry-Daniel Craig Drama Set Against Backdrop Of LA Riots – Cannes
https://deadline.com/2017/05/kings-hall ... 202098062/

After heated bidding from multiple places after a strong promo reel, The Orchard has acquired Kings, the Deniz Gamze Ergüven-directed drama that stars Halle Berry and Daniel Craig. The film is described as a drama about a foster family in South Central, a few weeks before the city erupts in violence following the verdict of the Rodney King trial in 1992.

A release date has yet to be set.

'Kings' will be screening at the Toronto International Film Festival on 13, 14 and 17 September, 2017.

In the English-language debut from writer-director Deniz Gamze Ergüven (Mustang), a recluse (Daniel Craig) helps a woman (Halle Berry) and her multiple children when riots erupt in Los Angeles following the 1992 acquittal of the policemen charged with assaulting Rodney King.

Bracing, bold, and ferociously inventive, writer-director Deniz Gamze Ergüven's follow-up to her Academy Award–nominated feature debut Mustang stars Oscar winner Halle Berry and Daniel Craig as citizens of the same South Central neighbourhood. As Los Angeles races to the verge of the 1992 uprising, their lives are set on a collision course.

Millie (Berry) is a hardworking single mom with a soft spot for strays. When Kings begins, she already has eight children living in her house and will soon bring home another. Her neighbour Obie (Craig) is the local loose cannon, and the only white man in an area largely inhabited by African Americans, Latinos, and Koreans. With racial tensions running dangerously high, Millie and Obie would appear to be unlikely allies. Yet following the acquittal of four of the officers accused of beating Rodney King, these two must navigate the gathering chaos in the city to bring Millie's kids home safely.

The events depicted in Kings are, sadly, only more resonant today. But Ergüven isn't content to offer mere sociological diagnosis or cinematic reportage. Her sense of style is irreverent, flamboyant, and occasionally dreamlike, and her characters are fascinating, multi-dimensional individuals with conflicting desires and complex loyalties. This extends to Millie's kids who, not unlike the cloistered sisters of Mustang, face seemingly dire circumstances with energy, verve and — despite everything — hope.
