Damien Lewis drives an F-Type in new Jaguar Desire short film


Award winning British actor Damian Lewis is to play the lead in a short feature film called ‘Desire’ for the luxury car brand, Jaguar.

Damian championed the new film, inspired by the all-new F-TYPE, at an exclusive pre LA Motor Show event hosted by Jaguar Land Rover at Paramount Studios, Los Angeles.

The film tells the story of Clark (Lewis), who delivers cars for a living, running into trouble after a chance encounter with a mysterious, young woman, played by Shannyn Sossamon, (40 Days and 40 Nights, A Knight’s Tale, Kiss Kiss Bang Bang) in the middle of a lawless desert. Directed by Adam Smith, this is a story of betrayal, retribution, passion and greed.

Damian Lewis commented:
“When Jaguar approached me about the F-TYPE Desire film I was really intrigued. I then got to read the script and decided it was definitely a project I wanted to be a part of. Working with the director Adam Smith from Ridley Scott Associates, it promises to be an adventure.”

Throughout the project Jaguar will be employing innovative techniques to share the film set experience and mastery with their audience. From using button hole cameras attached to the cast and crew; gaining insight from stunt coordinators and wardrobe; to setting up mobile Go Pro cameras on helicopters and cars to provide unique views from the set.

Music by Lana Del Rey.
