First Photo: Ben Wheatley’s “Free Fire”

Following rave reviews for the just released “High-Rise,” filmmaker Ben Wheatley has another effort on the way later this year – the period hard-boiled crime “Free Fire” which is described as “muscular, tough and spare”. A specific release date has yet to be locked.

Today, Empire Online has posted the first photo from the production which shows off Armie Hammer, Brie Larson, Cillian Murphy, Sam Riley and Michael Smiley in the project which is set in Boston 1978. The story charts the fallout from a gun-running hook-up orchestrated by Larson in a deserted warehouse.
