Sundance Film Festival

The pic, which premiered at the Sundance Film Festival this year in the Midnight section, stars Nigel O’Neill (Game Of Thrones) as middle-aged Donal, who lives on a rural farm with his beloved mother. When she is murdered after an apparent home invasion, he sets off on a bloody mission to avenge her death. Baugh directed in his helming debut and co-wrote the script with Mullin, who produced. It was funded by Northern Ireland Screen.

Well Go USA acquired North American rights earlier this month and plans a 2017 theatrical release.

The pair continue to be repped by Independent Talent Group in the UK.
