Yesterday, the news came out that Vertigo Films had acquired new British movie, Will to distrubute in the UK. We’d seen one trailer for the film before but now we get the theatrical version which focuses more around Will Bernnan (Perry Eggleton) than it does around Damien Lewis. The film has a great cast and incldues Damian Lewis (Band of Brothers, and Showtime’s upcoming Homeland), Bob Hoskins (A Christmas Carol, Who Framed Roger Rabbit) and Alice Krige (Chariots of Fire, Star Trek: First Contact) and also features cameos by Liverpool Football Club manager Kenny Dalglish, and Liverpool superstar footballers Jamie Carragher and Steven Gerrard.
Eleven-year-old Will Brennan’s (Perry Eggleton) life is turned upside down when his long-absent father (Damian Lewis) reappears with tickets to the 2005 Champions League Final in Istanbul. But when fate intervenes, Will runs away to Istanbul for the biggest soccer match of the year, searching for meaning in a world that seems to have abandoned him.
Will is released in the UK 21st October. Check out the new trailer for it below. If you’re a Liverpool fan, you’ll like it a lot!
