Saban Films is bringing My Name Is Lenny director Ron Scalpello’s latest UK crime thriller, The Corrupted, to North America in select theaters, on-demand and digital beginning January 10. The film is penned by Nick Mooncroft and stars Sam Claflin along with Hugh Bonneville, Timothy Spall, Joe Claflin and Charlie Murphy star in the new crime-action pic which currently presents a pulsating new trailer ahead of release.
Beneath the blinding lights and towering sights of the newly-built East London skyline, lies a dark, dangerous web of corruption. Stratford was home to the Olympic Games; decorated in the notion of legacy. But there’s little hope to be found for the recently released Liam McDonagh (Sam Claflin); a talented boxer put away for armed robbery, who wants nothing more than a peaceful life, and to reconnect with his young son Archie. But his brother Sean (Joe Claflin) is in deep, caught up in property developer Clifford Cullen’s (Timothy Spall) violent, unforgiving circle, with no route out. Liam knows he must risk everything to save his brother before it’s too late, but first, he needs to know who he can trust – which is a harder proposition than it sounds.
