Mahershala Ali va produce si juca rolul principal in Swan Song, o noua drama revolutionara Apple TV+ a carei productii va incepe in aceasta primavara.

Scris si regizat de Benjamin Cleary, castigator al Premiului Oscar in 2016 pentru scurtmetrajul Stutterer, Swan Song este produs de Apple si Anonymous Content. Filmul se petrece in viitorul apropiat si analizeaza cat de departe va merge o persoana si cat de multe va sacrifica aceasta pentru fericirea celor pe care ii iubeste.

Benjamin’s script for ‘Swan Song’ immediately connected with us. We cannot wait to bring Benjamin’s vision together with Mahershala’s undeniable talent to deliver this powerfully layered story to audiences around the world,” a declarat Matt Dentler de la Apple.

Benjamin Cleary is a rare talent who deftly weaves human emotion into his filmmaking in a way that harkens to many of the great films that began at Anonymous Content such as ‘Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind’ and ‘Being John Malkovich. We are tremendously grateful to be working with Mahershala Ali and Ben on this thought-provoking project, that we’re sure will be a conversation starter,” au declarat Adam Shulman (Defending Jacob) si Jacob Perlin (The Amazing Johnathan Documentary), producatorii filmului (Anonymous Content).

Benjamin Cleary a adaugat ca “I’ve been developing ‘Swan Song’ for a while and when I sat down with Apple it was immediately clear they completely understood my vision. Once Mahershala agreed to join us I knew we had something really special. To be making this movie with Mahershala and Anonymous at Apple is an absolute dream.”

Mahershala Ali este dublu castigator al Premiului Oscar, pentru rolurile secundare din Moonlight si Green Book.
