'End of Sentence’ featuring ‘Into the Badlands’ Actress Sarah Bolger to film in Ireland this month
2017-05-16 : Katie McNeice
Elfar Adalsteins (Sailcloth) is set to make his feature debut with the project, which is written by Michael Armbruster (Beautiful Boy) and will also star John Hawkes (Winter's Bone) and Logan Lerman (The Perks of Being a Wallflower).

Bolger also stars in ‘Halal Daddy’, the culture clash comedy from Conor McDermottroe which is set to release to cinemas on June 30th.

Rocket Science are handling world sales for the project in Cannes this month, with previous titles including ‘The Sea Change’ (Kristin Scott Thomas) and ‘Bubbles’ (Mark Gustafson).

‘End of Sentence’ is to be produced by David Collins of Samson Films alongside Adalsteins and Gudrun Edda Thorhannesdottir of Berserk Films, and Joni Sighvatsson of Palomar Pictures.

It follows an uptight widower who embarks on a journey to Ireland with his ex-con son to scatter his wife’s ashes.

The awkward pair must endure an Irish wake, the resurfacing of an old flame, an intriguing hitchhiker played by Bolger, and plenty of other unresolved issues.

Thorsten Schumacher, CEO, Rocket Science:
“End Of Sentence promises to be a warm, funny and moving story of an estranged father and son reconnecting, a road movie executed with sensitivity and humor by both the talented cast and incredible team behind the scenes, guaranteed to strike a chord with audiences the world over.”

Elfar Adalsteins, Director:
“I am delighted to be working with the talented team at Rocket Science. We’ve assembled a magnificent cast and crew and I look forward to working with them in bringing Michael’s wonderful screenplay to life.’”
