TRAILER | Lagom till valet i november kommer filmen ”Knife Fight” där Lowe spelar en professionell kampanjstrateg.

Titeln kommer från en av Lowes repliker i filmen där han beskriver politik som ”blood sport”. “To win in politics, you have to be the person who’s willing to bring a gun to a knife fight.”

Hans rollkaraktär baseras på Chris Lehane som har varit med och skrivit manus. Adam Nagourney på The New York Times skriver på bloggen The Caucus:

In Washington, Chris Lehane, a Democratic consultant, is known – and this is a compliment in that world – as a fervent advocate of the dark arts of politics: the cutthroat, destroy-your-enemies, do-what-it-takes-to win approach to political campaigns. “In the last five days, it always comes down to a knife fight in a telephone booth,” Mr. Lehane said, commenting on the final days of the 2008 presidential campaign.
