Gerard Butler, Peter Mullan and “Billy Lynn’s Long Halftime Walk” title star Joe Alwyn have joined the psychological thriller “Keepers” for Cross Creek Pictures and Protagonist Pictures.
Kristoffer Nyholm (“The Killing,” “Taboo”) will make his feature debut on the film which is inspired by a true unsolved local mystery. The story is set on an uninhabited island twenty miles from the rugged Scottish coast with the actors playing three lighthouse keepers arriving for a six-week shift.
As they settle into solitary routines, they stumble upon something that isn’t theirs to keep. When a boat appears in the distance that might hold the answer to their questions, a battle for survival ensues.
Celyn Jones and Joe Bone penned the script while Butler, Alan Siegel, Brian Oliver, Andy Evans, Ade Shannon and Sean Marley will produce. Shooting will kick off early 2017 in the United Kingdom.
