Jude Law to star in new short film for Johnnie Walker Blue Label

Published:  01 July, 2014

British film star, Jude Law, is to appear in a special short film to promote Johnnie Walker Blue Label, the blended Scotch whisky, called 'The Gentleman's Wager'.

The film, to be released on July 30, is directed by Jake Scott and also features Italian actor, Giancarlo Giannini, who appeared in both Skyfall and Quantum Solace James Bond films.

The film tells the story of a wager between two men, who despite seemingly having all the luxuries money can buy, are in search for the ultimate rare experience.

Law said of his involvement in the Johnnie Walker project, which was partly filmed in the British Virgin Islands: "The film is about improvement and progress and this is something I try to do in my work and my everyday life. I had to learn new skills shooting this film that combined with the places we visited and shot in, alongside working  with Jake and with Giancarlo, made it a truly rare experience."

In keeping with the rarity theme, Johnnie Walker Blue Label, produced by Diageo, is blended from rare casks of whiskies from across Scotland.
