Johnnie Walker Blue Label, the leading luxury Blended Scotch Whisky, as per IWSR 2013, has just launched a brand new short film starring actors Jude Law and Giancarlo Giannini.
‘The Gentleman’s Wager’ is directed by British director Jake Scott and tells the story of a wager between two men striving for personal progress through the quest for a truly rare experience. Jude Law plays the role of a man who, despite having it all, challenges himself to strive for something he wants that money can’t buy.
Shot in The British Virgin Islands, Caribbean and London respectively, the story begins with Law and Giannini sipping Johnnie Walker Blue Label whisky on a truly unique hand-crafted boat as they look out across a stunning ocean seascape. We hear Law’s character state that he wants to buy the boat, but it is not for sale and the only way he can get it, is by putting on a truly unique performance. The wager begins.
James Thompson, Managing Director, Diageo Reserve says: “We are delighted to be launching ‘The Gentleman’s Wager’ film today. To us, Jude embodies the progressive spirit that the Johnnie Walker Blue Label brand identifies with and celebrates, so we’re thrilled he has taken on the lead role of the film and we’re looking forward to continuing to work with him in the future.”
