- IFC Films has a new page for the April 2nd US release of The Escapist with Damian Lewis.
- Blogger Thomas Robinson says of The Escapist:
“Rupert Wyatt’s debut then is one of those most wonderful of films, defiantly modern without shirking its genre’s classic roots…That the lead is played by supporting actor du jour Brian Cox is the films biggest boon… It’s wonderful to see him excel in a starring role written with him in mind…The supporting cast are also excellent with some nicely against-type casting in the form of Damian Lewis’ soft spoken murderous kingpin…Wyatt is a talent to watch.
- Michael Sheen and Helen McCrory have again been cast to play British Prime Minister Tony Blair and his wife Cherie Blair; this time for a new film about Blair’s interactions with US President Bill Clinton.
