Drama will shoot early February…
Scottish actor Peter Mullan (‘Sunshine on Leith,’ ‘Tyrannosaur,’ ‘Trainspotting’) is to take the lead in Jake Gavin’s feature directorial debut ‘Victor.’
Per Screen, the film will see Mullan playing “a homeless man who, after living on motorways for years, sets out on a road trip incorporating Glasgow, Newcastle, Liverpool and London. While he encounters cruelty and indifference, he also finds compassion and generosity, friendship and humour. As his journey nears its end, the past he has been trying to escape finally catches up with him.”
Stephen Malit, (‘The Modern Babylon’) is producing, with financing coming from Nyman Libson Paul’s Goldfinch Pictures banner. The film is set to shoot for five weeks from February 3rd.
“’Victor’ raises important questions about homelessness,” Malit told Screen. “The film is all about Victor’s journey and the slow reveal of Victor’s character but it’s also about love and there are some light-hearted moments despite the journey being in bleakest winter.”
