Woody Harrelson to Live-Stream While Recording Next Movie – AND Do It From 14 Locations!

by Bret Hoy3 Comments

Now, this is interesting to me and I suspect you’ll find it a challenge as well – Woody Harrelson is going to not only live-stream this movie, but it will be filmed while streaming and shown in a theatrical release later!

Now that’s cool!

As the article notes, it will be much like filming a play as it is in progress but the kicker is they are filming not in a theater, but in 14 different locations around London – all within 100 minutes!

And it requires a lot of planning i’m sure!

Now THAT is an amazing accomplishment if he can pull it off!

Will you tune in? Think he’s crazy?

Lost in London LIVE

Via Fathom Events YT Channel:

Academy Award® nominated actor Woody Harrelson will direct and star in an unprecedented live feature film event, Lost in London LIVE, on January 19.

Woody Harrelson will shoot his next movie while streaming it live into movie theaters

Via The Verge:

Woody Harrelson is making a movie inspired by one night he ended up in a London jail. On its face, that’s not a very interesting premise, but lucky for anyone who roots for Woody Harrelson, that’s not all: the film, Lost in London, will be live-streamed in theaters at the same time it’s being shot.

As Entertainment Weekly reports, this will mark the first time a film (not a stage play) has been live-streamed into theaters. The 100-minute movie will differ from a play in that it will take place in 14 different locations around London, and will still be shot in a single take.

  1. Bret this is awesome! Never been done before and I think it’s great that FINALLY we will get to see EXACTLY what an actor goes through when making a film. Some documentaries are great and have come close, but Woody is def taking this to the next level with live streaming the entire production from his POV. I find it fascinating and groundbreaking. I really hope it’s as good as I think it can be…. is this the future? Are we gonna ‘Livestream’ everything now?

  2. Sounds like a great mission. Can’t wait and look forward to it. Date would be great.
