Charlie Hunnam In Training For Thai Prison Fight Drama, A PRAYER BEFORE DAWN

The film is also pushing a little extra for authenticity on top of Hunnam’s training with Jean-Stephane Sauvaire in the director’s chair; casting details are pending as things stand, although it is currently being said the cast may include former inmates who were once Muay Thai champions themselves. In addition, Nick Saltrese’s screenplay will illustrate that of a crossover in genres towing the line between Nicolas Winding Refn’s Drive and Gareth Huw Evans’s The Raid, which could grant this prison thriller something healthily balanced and promising on top of being an enthralling drama. That said, leave it to Sauvaire in his own words to offer a bit more insight. “A Prayer Before Dawn is – at one and the same time – a true story, a prison drama, a survival movie, a desperate love story and an extraordinary tale of redemption.” he says. “Above all, it is a poignant and uniquely human story.”.
