It has not been long since upcoming movie THE PILGRIMAGE wrapped, but already we have been treated to photographs of Richard Armitage, Jon Bernthal and Tom Holland in new stills courtesy of The Hollywood Reporter.
The film is being brought to the big screen by Brendan Muldowney and was penned by Jamie Hannigan, which is an Irish production, backed by the Irish Film Board and the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland shot on location in Belgium and Ireland.
In the exclusive images we see the actors as 13th century monks who must escort their monastery’s holiest relic to Rome and find their faith severely tested en route when they discover that the item is not quite what they thought. The relic certainly attracts the wrong kind of attention, which pressures them into joining forces with a knight (Armitage).
It is a seemingly different role for Armitage, who is largely known for his big screen role in Peter Jackson‘s THE HOBBIT Trilogy and can currently be seen on the small screen in HANNIBAL. He is joined in the film by Bernthal who plays a mute member of the holy order who joined the monastery to make penance for his violent past, while Holland is a pious young novice.
No details have been revealed yet about an official release date but what we do know is that footage from the film will be screened to potential buyers at the Toronto Film Festival and the American Film Market, so no doubt more information will be revealed in due course.
