Jonas Åkerlund signs to direct full-length motion picture

Written by administrator on April 23, 2001 to .

Jonas Åkerlund, well-known for directing Roxette music videos such as “The Centre Of The Heart,” has signed on to direct the dark indie comedy “Spun.”

  Movie rumour site Ain’t It Cool News reports that the film deals with an unemployed guy (played by Jason Schwartzman) who uses methamphetamine and gets entangled with the maker of the drug (Mickey Rourke), who then takes him on a three-day journey. Other actors involved include Brittany Murphy (playing a stripper), John Leguizamo (a dealer), Patrick Fugit (a speed addict), and Swedish actor Peter Stormare, who plays a policeman. The script was written by Creighton Vero and Will De Los Santos.

  Åkerlund previously directed the 1997 short film ’The Hidden,’ but this appears to be his first-full length feature.
