Building on his tremendous success this year, Robin Thicke is now taking his talents to the big screen. The “Blurred Lines” singer has written, directed and stars in an upcoming short film entitled Mercy, according to The Hollywood Reporter.
Thicke joins his wife Paula Patton, Robert Patrick (Walk the Line, Gangster Squad) and Amandla Stenberg (The Hunger Games) in the film, which is based on true events.
‘Mercy‘ follows Tom (Thicke), a family-focused limo driver, and his wife, Cynthia (Patton), a woman who is plagued by alcohol and drug addiction. Patrick plays Randall Cross, a man full of regrets who cannot sit idly by as he is on the verge of losing his home after his wife succumbs to cancer. Stenberg plays Tom and Cynthia’s daughter, a talented violinist and former student of Randall’s dying wife.
Mercy was filmed in Los Angeles earlier this year and was produced by Jump Films’ Mick Partridge, with Thicke and Jordan Feldstein executive producing. There is no confirmed release date yet.
