Signature Entertainment Unveil the Trailer And Poster for Francis Annan’s ESCAPE FROM PRETORIA Ahead of March Release
Signature Entertainment proudly presents the tense, prison break thriller ESCAPE FROM PRETORIA based on the incredible true story, starring Daniel Radcliffe in UK Cinemas and Digital 6th March.
Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) stars as Tim Jenkin, a real-life ANC activist who was branded a terrorist – and imprisoned - in Africa’s maximum-security Pretoria prison in the late 1970’s during Apartheid. Along with two fellow freedom fighters, played by Daniel Webber (The Punisher, The Dirt) and Mark Leonard Winter (The Dressmaker) Tim made a complex and daring escape 18 months into his incarceration using handcrafted wooden keys.
The ingenious escape attempt happened 40 years ago on 11th December 1979. Escape from Pretoria, based on the biography by Tim Jenkin, also stars Ian Hart (Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone) and Stephen Hunter (The Hobbit Trilogy). The film was directed by British director Francis Annan and produced by British producer David Barron (Kenneth Branagh’s Cinderella, Harry Potter).
