The first trailer for director Pascal Chaumeil’s (Heartbreaker) adaptation of the Nick Hornby novel A Long Way Down has landed online.  The story revolves around a group of strangers who coincidentally meet on the top of a London skyscraper on New Year’s Eve where they individually had gone to commit suicide.  The four strangers make a pact to stay alive until Valentine’s Day, and the film follows this group of unlikely friends “as they try to pull back from the brink.”  The pic looks to be a solid comedic drama ensemble piece with impressive turns from Pierce Brosnan, Toni Collette, Aaron Paul, and Imogen Poots as the four strangers.  Hornby’s novels have previously made for the swell adaptations High Fidelity and About a Boy, so hopefully A Long Way Down can follow in their footsteps.

Hit the jump to watch the trailer and to check out the first poster.  The film also stars Rosamund Pike, Sam Neill, and Tuppence MiddletonA Long Way Down opens in the U.K. on March 21st and is currently awaiting a U.S. release date.

Filming has commenced on director Pascal Chaumeil’s (Heartbreaker) adaptation of the Nick Hornby novel A Long Way Down.  The story revolves around a group of strangers who coincidentally meet on the top of a London skyscraper on New Year’s Eve where they individually had gone to commit suicide.  The four strangers make a pact to stay alive until Valentine’s Day at least, and the story follows this group of unlikely friends “as they try to pull back from the brink.”  The ensemble cast includes Pierce Brosnan, Toni Collette, Aaron Paul, and Imogen Poots, with Sam Neill and Rosamund Pike (Pride and Prejudice) also signing on.

The four central strangers are played by Brosnan, Collette, Paul, and Poots, who are set as a once-beloved TV personality, single mother, failed musician turned pizza-delivery boy and a “sassy teen” respectively.  Hornby is the author behind such great works as High Fidelity, About a Boy and Fever Pitch, so the source material is a solid foundation.  Jack Thorne (How I Live Now) wrote the screenplay and production is taking place in England and Spain.  Hit the jump to read the full press release (which includes a synopsis) and to check out the first image.
