“Mr. Turner” actor Timothy Spall is to star in “Away”, the fifth collaboration between producer Terry Stone and international sales agent Cinema Management Group (CMG).
Juno Temple will also headline the drama from Stone’s Gateway Films and Ratio Film. CMG chief Edward Noeltner is introducing Away to buyers in Berlin this week and holds world rights while the producers retain the UK.
David Blair will direct the Blackpool-set story about a widower who saves an orphan on the run from a drug dealer, sparking an unlikely friendship. Production is scheduled for an early March shoot mostly on location.
