“Sons of Anarchy” and “Pacific Rim” star Charlie Hunnam is attached to star in Jean-Stephane Sauvaire’s Thai boxing prison thriller “A Prayer Before Dawn” at Senorita Films.
Described as a mashup of “Drive” and “The Raid”, Nick Saltrese penned the script which is based on the true-life story of Liverpool raised amateur boxer and drug dealer Billy Moore’s incarceration in Klong Prem Thai prison, better known as the infamous ‘Bangkok Hilton’. His two year incarceration in that brutal place changed his outlook on life.
Hunnam is currently training for the Muay Thai sequences in the film which will shoot mid-2015. Real-life former prisoners and Muay Thai champions are being sought for supporting roles.
