Charles Dance (“Game of Thrones”) is set to play the role of ‘The Visitor’ alongside John Hurt in “That Good Night” at GSP Studios, Red Rock Entertainment and Goldfinch Entertainment.
Based on N.J. Crisp’s 1996 stage-play of the same name, Hurt plays a famed screenwriter coming to terms with his impending death.
As he does so, he resolves to attempt two final missions in life: to be reconciled to his long-lost son (Brown), and to ensure he doesn’t become a burden on his wife Anna (Helin) with his slow decline by enlisting a mysterious ‘Visitor’ to help him pass painlessly into ‘that good night’.
Sofia Helin, Max Brown and Erin Richards also star. Eric Styles (“Dreaming of Joseph Lees”) helms from a screenplay by Charles Savage.
Filming will take place over five weeks on the Algarve coast of Portugal.
