With principal photography beginning in Thailand last week, the first still from ‘A Prayer Before Dawn’ has been released, featuring Joe Cole (Peaky Blinders, Green Room) as Billy Moore, a Liverpool boxer incarcerated in a notorious Thai prison. Directed by Jean-Stéphane Sauvaire, the Muay-Thai action film is produced by Hurricane Films, Señorita Films and Indochina Productions.
Hurricane’s Roy Boulter said: “Ever since Billy Moore first turned up unannounced at our office with his incredible and inspiring story, three years ago, we knew we had to get this film made. In Jean-Stéphane, we have a director who has given everything to get the film made. Joe Cole is one of the country’s most promising rising stars and we are fully confident that he will do Billy’s story justice. We are extremely excited by the film and are looking forward to being on set, seeing the film come to life.”
