Snake Oil – Synopsis
Snake Oil – “A wily street vendor flees London in search of the American dream promised by his late father, but he can’t find it anywhere. A whimsical no-dialogue adventure spanning 2 continents, greatly inspired by the films of Buster Keaton.”
According to Paul Cooper on Facebook, the film was previewed at the Swindon Film Festival last week.
Charlie appears to be playing the role of Detective Greg Lestrade. A release date for the film is currently unknown, but the director Remy Archer responded to a comment on the trailer saying “…Snake Oil will be doing the festival circuit this year and so won’t be available online until after that has finished. But please stay tuned and follow this account or my instagram: @remy_archer for updates and to see our new releases, we have plenty more in the pipeline! Best, R”
This will be Charlie’s first feature since appearing in the 2019 film Greed and the TV drama A Confession. You can see the trailer for the film below.
