In Reel Time: VICE News Tonight on HBO (Full Segment)

Woody Harrelson is the writer, producer, and star of Lost in London, a 90-minute feature film that was shown live in theaters as it was filmed on January 19, 2017.

The story was inspired by a 2002 incident in which Harrelson broke an ashtray in the back of a London cab late one night, then attempted to get away in a second cab before running from police on foot. He spent the night in jail.

“It really was one of the worst nights I’ve had,” Harrelson told Vice News. “And I don’t know why I later thought, comedy! You know, this thing could be a disaster.”

The film’s cast also features Owen Wilson and Willie Nelson — playing themselves. VICE News met up with Harrelson on-set to see him prepare for the big night.
