First 3 Pics From Terry Gilliam’s ‘The Zero Theorem’ – Starring Christoph Waltz, Tilda Swinton, Matt Damon & More
The good people over at Empire have let out the hatch the first three images from Terry Gilliam’s ‘The Zero Theorem.’ Christoph Waltz, billiard-smooth of head, if not mannerism, is the film’s ever-present protagonist. As Qohen Leth, a programmer for “entity-crunching” corporation ManCom, he is, Gilliam explains, “waiting for a phone call that will give meaning to his life”. Like Brazil’s Sam Lowry, Leth is befuddled by the info-dump world he lives in and the Heath Robinson tech tangle that surrounds him. Unlike Lowry, he’s something of a hacker genius whose attempts to solve the “Zero Theorem” could unlock the key to life’s meaning.
Also starring the likes of Matt Damon, Tilda Swinton, Ben Whishaw, Peter Stormare and David Thewlis, ‘The Zero Theorem’ is set for 2014. You can always count me in for a new Terry Gilliam flick! The synopsis for ‘The Zero Theorem’ can be read below the rest of the pics.
