Jason Lew directing….

It has been announced that Corkonian, Cillian Murphy (‘Hear of the Sea,’ ‘Transcendence’) and Bryce Dallas Howard (‘Jurassic World’ ‘The Help’) are to take the leads in screenwriter Jason Lew’s directorial debut ‘The Free World.’

‘The Free World’ is the story of Mohamed “Mo” Lundy (Murphy), a man attempting to adjust to civilian life after a brutal 20-year stretch in prison for crimes he did not commit. His world collides with Doris Lamb (Howard), a tragic and mysterious woman with a violent past, for whom he will come to risk everything, including his new found freedom.

Principal photography is scheduled to get underway in the autumn with Untitled Entertainment’s Laura Rister (‘All Is Lost,’ ‘Margin Call,’ ‘The Iceman,’ ‘Lawless’) producing. Emilie Georges and Nicholas Shumaker will serve as executive producers.
