Wondering what Cillian Murphy has been up to lately, aside from starring in a few Christopher Nolan films? Here’s a look at a trailer for an interesting indie thriller starring Murphy that will be released on DVD through Lionsgate next month called Peacock. Murphy plays a bank clerk in a small town named John Skillpa who has a split personality… it just so happens that his other personality is a woman named Emma. When his neighbours accidentally meet Emma one day, they start to ask questions and his life begins to unravel around him.
Although the movie is helmed by first-time director Michael Lander, it has a pretty stellar supporting cast that includes Ellen Page, Susan Sarandon, Josh Lucas, Bill Pullman and Keith Carradine. Clearly Murphy’s performance is the focal point of the film, and looking at some of the scenes in the trailer it’s a bit hard to believe it’s actually him. There’s a mystery here as well, but mostly it seems like a character study of someone losing their grip on reality. And is it just me or did they steal some music from Dexter? Peacock will be released on April 20th; check out the trailer after the jump and see what you think.
