The first photo of Patrick Stewart as a skinhead in his new film, Green Room, has been released.

Stewart tweeted a photo on his personal Twitter page, showing Stewart as the leader of a group of violent skinheads in director Jeremy Saulnier’s second film.

Here is the synopsis of Green Room, courtesy of slashfilm:

“In the crime thriller GREEN ROOM, a young punk rock band find themselves trapped in a secluded venue after stumbling upon a horrific act of violence, fighting for their lives against a gang of white power skinheads intent on eliminating all witnesses. Patrick Stewart plays Darcy Banker, the unflinching and industrial leader of a ferocious white supremacist fiefdom based in the Pacific Northwest.  Rounding out the cast is Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots, Alia Shawkat, Joe Cole, Callum Turner, Mark Webber, Kai Lennox, Eric Edelstein and Saulnier’s BLUE RUIN star Macon Blair.”

Jeremy Saulnier was originally a cinematographer, working on small independent films like In Our Nature and See Girl Run and documentaries like Rett: There Is Hope. Last year, he wrote and directed his first feature film, Blue Ruin, a small but intriguing revenge thriller starring Macon Blair. Blue Ruin can be seen on Netflix currently, and may shine a light on what type of film Green Room will turn out to be as far as mood and atmosphere are concerned.

While Green Room does not have a firm release date in 2015, it is expected to be ready for festival season, with the Cannes Film Festival coming in spring. Stewart can also be seen in the upcoming film Stuck, where he is one of six people caught in an elevator on Christmas Eve. Hilarity then ensues.

Patrick Stewart as a skinhead in this Green Room photo bears a striking resemblance to Walter White (Bryan Cranston) from Breaking Bad in that mild-mannered attire.
