Saban Films and Lionsgate have released the first U.S. trailer and poster for Ivan Kavanagh’s Irish Western Never Grow Old.
Set in the harsh American frontier landscape of 1849 Never Grow Old is about greed and its consequences. It is a Faustian tale of outsider Patrick Tate who lives with his young family on the outskirts of a relatively peaceful frontier town until outlaws take over and kill all those who challenge them. Patrick plays a dangerous game befriending and profiting from the outlaws mayhem and it is only a matter of time before he must protect his own from the bloodshed.
The film stars John Cusack, Emile Hirsch, Déborah François, Antonia Campbell-Hughes, and Danny Webb. The film is written and directed by Ivan Kavanagh, who last gave us the eerie horror The Canal in 2014.
Never Grow Old is produced by Jacqueline Kerrin, Marie-Claire Kerrin and Dominic Wright for Irish-based Ripple World Pictures, Nicolas Steil of Luxembourg’s Iris Productions, and Jean-Michel Rey of France’s Rezo Productions. The film was developed with the assistance of Fís Éireann/Screen Ireland (FÉ/SI) is the national development agency for Irish filmmaking and the Irish film, television and animation industry., Creative Europe MEDIA, Quickfire Films, and the Luxembourg Film Fund.
Never Grow Old will be released in the U.S. by Saban Films and Lionsgate in select cinemas and VOD on March 15th. An Irish release will come later this year.
