Having made a real name for himself in his feature debut, Richard Ayoade’s Submarine, Craig Roberts continues to impress with a slew of promising projects on his upcoming slate, including Dan Beers’ Premature with Alan Tudyk and Nicholas Stoller’s Townies with Seth Rogen, Zac Efron, and Rose Byrne. But before all that, we can look forward to seeing him star alongside the brilliant Charlotte Ritchie in Jamie Adams’ feature debut, Jolene: The Indie Folk Star.
Adams’ movie is eyeing a debut at Raindance this autumn, and is then set to tour the film at a handful of universities around the country in successive weeks, ahead of a DVD/VOD release around Christmas 2013. And with Jolene now approaching the end of post-production, we’ve got the brilliant first trailer to share.
