Alec Baldwin Embroiled in Lionsgate Tense Thriller, ‘Clear Cut’

The Official Trailer Released by the Streaming Platform Showcases Baldwin in a Riveting Performance.

Alec Baldwin is back in the spotlight, but this time for his gripping role in the upcoming thriller Clear Cut. The official trailer, released by Lionsgate on Wednesday, showcases Baldwin in a riveting performance that promises to be a major draw for moviegoers this summer. This thriller film is set to be released on 19th July 2024 theatrically and on-demand streaming platform, Lionsgate Play.

Directed by the prolific filmmaker Brian Skiba and written by Joe Perruccio, Clear Cut delves into the complexities of justice and morality. The film features Baldwin as a veteran detective caught in a web of deceit and danger. The other star cast of the film includes Jesse Metcalfe, Tom Welling, Clive Standen and Lucy Martin.

The Clear Cut trailer teases intense action sequences, emotional depth, and a plot thick with suspense. Baldwin’s portrayal of a detective navigating treacherous waters is already being hailed as a return to form for the actor, whose career has been marred by recent controversy.

The plot is centred around Jack, played by Clive Standen who starts a logging job and has a dark past. He soon realizes that a group of criminals are looking out for him to bring an unfinished task to an end.“Logging is the deadliest profession in the world,” Alex Baldwin tells Jack (Standen) in the trailer. He asks, “Sure you want to get into this line of work?”

The release of the Clear Cut trailer coincides with Baldwin’s ongoing legal troubles stemming from the tragic incident on the set of the film Rust. In October 2021, a prop gun discharged during filming, resulting in the death of cinematographer Halyna Hutchins.

The incident has led to a highly publicized trial, with Baldwin facing charges of involuntary manslaughter. Despite the legal challenges, Baldwin remains focused on his acting career.

With the Clear Cut trailer generating significant buzz, the film is set to be one of the talked-about releases of the year. The film’s narrative, centred around a detective embroiled in a high-stakes investigation, mirrors Baldwin’s real-life challenges, adding an extra layer of intrigue for viewers.
