London Fields is a 2015 thriller, directed by Mathew Cullen and written by Roberta Hanley. It is based on the 1989 novel of the same name by Martin Amis. The film stars Billy Bob Thornton as Samson Young, a terminally ill writer who has suffered from writer's block for twenty years. The cast also includes Amber Heard, Jim Sturgess, Theo James, Johnny Depp, Cara Delevingne and Jaimie Alexander.

It was selected to be screened in the Special Presentations section of the 2015 Toronto International Film Festival,[1] but it was later pulled from the festival roster after director Mathew Cullen sued the film's producers, accusing them of fraud and using his name to promote a cut of the film he does not support.[2]

Cast[edit]

Production[edit]

David Cronenberg was attached in 2001 to do a film adaptation of the book, and Amis wrote a draft of the script. However, Cronenberg would leave the film for A History of Violence and Eastern Promises. Other directors attached include David Mackenzie and Michael Winterbottom.[4][5] The film entered production with Mathew Cullen in September 2013 in London, England.

Soundtrack[edit]

The soundtrack was written and produced by Toydrum and Benson Taylor.[6][7]

Release[edit]

On September 16, 2015, it was reported Lionsgate had acquired distribution rights to the film.[8]
