Michael Caton-Jones To Helm “Urban Hymn”

Michael Caton-Jones (“Rob Roy,” “The Jackal”) has come onboard the coming-of-age drama “Urban Hymn” for Dashishah Universal Film Production, Eclipse Films and Powderkeg Pictures.

Set in Bristol against the backdrop of the 2011 British summer youth riots, the script by Nick Moorcroft (“Burke and Hare”) follows a neglected and wayward teen who possesses an amazing singing voice and is torn between her loyalties towards her inspiring, unconventional care worker and her possessive and volatile best friend.

Filming aims to begin in September with casting for the lead roles currently underway.
