Paddy Considine-starring boxing drama will promo screen at Cannes.
Sales outfit Cornerstone films has released a new image from forthcoming boxing drama Journeyman, starring Paddy Considine as a champion fighter who begins to suffer from personality changes after a devastating punch leaves him in a coma.
Considine also directs the film, his second feature after 2011 BAFTA-winning drama Tyrannosaur.
The production wrapped in mid-April after a six-week shoot in the North of England.
Considine stars alongside Jodie Whittaker (One Day), Anthony Welsh (Starred Up), Tony Pitts (War Horse) and Paul Popplewell (’71).
The project is being financed by Film4 with the BFI, Screen Yorkshire and the Wellcome Trust. Studiocanal is on-board to handle the UK release, while Cornerstone will oversee international sales.
Cornerstone will show a first-look promo of Journeyman at the forthcoming Cannes Film Festival.
