Christophe  Waltz directs and stars in a tale of a scheming charmer – here’s the trailer for Georgetown, that’s just been released.

Paramount has launched the trailer for Georgetown, Christophe Waltz’s first outing as a director. The project, which has been in development since 2015, is based on a New York Times article about the investigation into Albrecht Ruth and the strange and bizarre scandal that was uncovered when police looked into the death of his elderly wife.

Vanessa Redgrave and Annette Bening co-star in the film which is set to hit US cinemas on May 14th before a VoD release on May 18th. Unsurprisingly, there’s no word yet on a UK release but we’ll keep you posted as we’re keen to see more of this one.

Do check out the trailer below.

We’ll leave you with the film’s synopsis:

In the world of political intrigue and gossip dominating the social scene in Washington, few couples stood out quite like German nationals Elsa Breht (Redgrave) and her husband Ulrich Mott (Waltz). Inspired by true events, GEORGETOWN marks the feature debut of two-time Academy Award-winner, Christoph Waltz. The film tells the story of a highly unconventional love affair, of an outsider striving for acceptance and the desperate struggle for significance on every level, culminating in one of Washington’s most sensational scandals of recent times.
