Jonathan Rhys Meyers is lending his brooding good looks for new movie, London Town, where he portrays The Clash's Joe Strummer. The film is set in 1979 and follows a teen who happens to meet the iconic punk frontman by chance. Check out the trailer up top.
Daniel Huttlestone (Into the Woods) plays Shay, the young teen who is obsessed with the band and even dyes his hair jet-black to look like Strummer. The trailer finds him exploring London with his angsty blokes, falling in puppy love and showing off his piano skills by playing "White Riot."
Filmmaker Derrick Borte shared this in a statement:
"This coming of age story is just a glimpse into a brief moment in the life of one young boy almost 40 years ago, set against the rise of punk and a backdrop of social political, and racial unrest that is incredibly similar and relevant to what we see happening in the world today. I made London Town to illuminate the power that music has to change your life."
London Town will hit theaters, VOD and iTunes on Oct. 7th. Ahead of its premiere, watch a throwback Fuse interview with the Wallflowers discussing working with Mick Jones of the Clash:
