Fans of ludicrously monikered British singer FKA Twigs will be pleased to know that she is to make her movie debut in US crime-drama ‘Brighton Beach’.
Filming is already completed and the is in post-production at present. The film follows the rivalry between a family-run medical practice and a local mob boss caught up in a multi-million dollar Medicare fraud racket and Miss Twigs will co-star opposite rising UK actor Barney Harris, whose first roles include appearances in Ang Lee’s upcoming ‘Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk’ and hit UK TV series ‘The Hollow Crown’.
‘Brighton Beach‘ will also star Costa Ronin (The Americans), Sofia Vassilieva (Medium) and Michael Kingsbaker.
The film is the feature debut of Russian-American writer-director David Gutnik who previously lived in the film’s Brooklyn neighbourhood and whose previous credits as editor include Four and Heartlock. It’s not yet known if Miss Twigs (whose real name is Tahliah Debrett Barnett) will contribute to the film’s music and the alternative R&B singer, songwriter and dancer, who directs most of her music videos, became known for extended plays EP1 (2012) and EP2 (2013) before releasing debut studio album LP1 in 2014.
Rumours that her younger sister, WTF Twiglet, (whose real name is Lucinda Poncenby Blenkinsop Smythe) will co star also remain unfounded
