The man behind Shaun Of The Dead and The World's End, Mr Edgar Wright will be lending his film taste buds to Picturehouse Central from this Monday, as he has programmed in a series of Monday night flicks, starting on 12 September with Michael Cimino's '70s heist/buddy movie Thunderbolt And Lightfoot, starring Clint Eastwood and Jeff Bridges – screening from a rare and original 35mm print. A perfect accompaniment to the release of the Texan-set thriller Hell or High Water, which also stars Bridges and mines some of the same genre terrain.
The PHC will be showing Wright's curated films every Monday evening at Picturehouse Central, and he hopes to attend as many as possible.
