Gravitas Ventures has acquired North American rights to distribute comedy Say Your Prayers. Directed by Harry Michell, written by Jamie Fraser and Harry Michell and starring Harry Melling, Tom Brooke, Derek Jacobi, Roger Allam, Anna Maxwell Martin, Vinette Robinson, Say Your Prayers will release in theatres and on demand on April 2, 2021.
Orphaned brothers and Christian radicals, Tim and Vic, arrive in Ilkley with the relatively straightforward task of assassinating Professor John Huxley. However, after a classic case of mistaken identity, they find themselves having murdered the wrong man. Now stuck in the town during Ilkley’s busiest weekend, they wait for the arrival of a foreboding mentor to give them instruction. The mission must still be completed – that’s providing Vic’s rage, Tim’s doubts or the efforts of foul mouthed Detective Inspector Brough don’t get in the way first.
Director Harry Michell says “We’re very pleased to be working with Gravitas and excited to see how the film goes down with a North American audience”
Gravitas Ventures Manager of Acquisitions Brett Rogalsky negotiated the deal with Sarah Lebutsch of Independent.
