Nick Frost Dancing His Heart Out in 'Cuban Fury' Comedy
This is an article by Ethan Anderton for the Collider that was published earlier this month, we're sharing it with all you fellow Salsa (And Nick Frost!/Chris O'Dowd!) lovers out there like us! :)
Back in July, a cool featurette gave us a behind-the-scenes glimpse at the comedy Cuban Fury starring Nick Frost, Chris O'Dowd and Rashida Jones. The film follows a down-on-his-luck man (Frost) who reignites his long-dormant passion for salsa dancing, crushed by a rival dancer (O'Dowd), due to a new love for his American boss (Jones). Now we have some first look photos from the American Film Market thanks to Collider. Sadly, there's no shots of Ian McShane as Frost's dance instructor, but there's a great shot of Frost in full Cuban dance garb and also tossing around O'Dowd in a parking lot, maybe in a dance fight?
Here are the first photos from James Griffiths' Cuban Fury from Collider:
Cuban Fury is written by Jon Brown ("Misfits"), from an original idea by Nick Frost, and marks the feature film directorial debut of James Griffiths ("Up All Night" and "Free Agents"). Beneath Bruce Garrett’s (Nick Frost) shabby, overweight exterior, the passionate beating heart of a salsa king lays dormant. Only one woman (Rashida Jones) can reignite his Latin fire. Spotlight hits, sweat drips, heels click. Chris O'Dowd and Ian McShane also star in the film which is slated to hit theaters in the United Kingdom and Ireland on March, but we're not sure when it's heading to theaters here in the United States yet, so stay tuned for more.
