We'd be properly chuffed if David Beckham were to make starring in films a regular gig. We'd be especially OK if they're in 3D because, well, biceps. Until that happy day, we'll happily settle for 'Outlaws', a new short film for Belstaff in which Beckham stars as a brooding drifter and motorcycle stuntman.
The eerie film was shot across the dustbowl expanses of the Mexican desert, and also stars Hollywood heavyweights Harvey Keitel and Oscar-nominated actress Cathy Moriarty. Newcomer Katherine Waterston (who has just been cast opposite Eddie Redmayne in the new 'Harry Potter' film franchise, 'Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them') plays the beautiful trapeze artist who haunts the memories of Beckham's drifter as he is pursued by a frightening Keitel, who plays a maniacal director bent on revenge for some as-yet-defined slight.
Liv Tyler was the executive producer (why? She's in a relationship with Beckham's best friend, Dave Gardner), and it was written and directed by Geremy Jasper.
'Working alongside Harvey, Cathy, and Katherine was an adventure I will never forget,' said Beckham, who has been the face of the brand since 2013.
We strongly recommend you watch the trailer for 'Outlaws' below, which premiere (via Belstaff.com on September 21 during London Fashion Week.
