Johnnie Walker Blue Label, the world’s leading luxury blended Scotch Whisky, announces the launch of an exciting short film starring Jude Law and Giancarlo Giannini and directed by Jake Scott. ‘The Gentleman’s Wager’ tells the story of a wager between two men which results in a truly rare experience as part of their quest for personal progress. Filmed in the British Virgin Islands and London, the beautifully shot film sees Law in the role of a man who, despite having it all, proposes a wager as an excuse to challenge himself to create an original performance in order to win a money-can’t-buy prize.
As part of his preparation for his part in the film, Jude Law went through intensive training, including learning to play the piano, picking up a saxophone for the first time in years and going to dance classes. The film sees Mr Law don a wardrobe that harks back to his Talented Mr Ripley days, with yacht-chic outfits and sharp tailoring.
