British actor Johnny Harris (Snow White and the Huntsman, This is England ’86) both wrote and stars in the drama Jawbone, where he plays a former youth boxing champion who, years after anyone thought he was a contender, turns to his childhood boxing club as a way to regain his place in the world.
The supporting cast is a murderers’ row of across-the-pond character actors, with Ray Winstone (The Departed) as a gym owner, Ian McShane (Deadwood, John Wick) as a promoter, and Michael Smiley (Kill List, The World’s End) as a ring man. Jawbone also boasts a soundtrack written by British rock icon and former Jam frontman Paul Weller.
The film is directed by Thomas Q. Napper and premieres in the U.K. March 17.
