The Vanishing. THE VANISHING is a psychological thriller inspired by a true, unsolved legend – the Flannan Isle mystery.
Set on an uninhabited island 20 miles from the rugged Scottish coast, THE VANISHING tells the story of three lighthouse keepers who stumble on something that isn’t theirs to keep. What follows is an isolation and paranoia-fed battle for survival as the men venture down a path of destruction.
THE VANISHING is directed by award-winning Danish filmmaker Kristoffer Nyholm (Taboo, The Killing) and stars Scottish actors Peter Mullan ((Tyrannosaur, War Horse, Trainspotting) and Gerard Butler (London Has Fallen, 300, How to Train Your Dragon) and newcomer Connor Swindells (VS.).
Written by Celyn Jones (Set Fire to the Stars) and Joe Bone (Castles In The Sky), the film is produced by Andy Evans, Ade Shannon and Sean Marley for Mad as Birds Films, along with Jason Seagraves, Maurice Fadida and G-BASE’s Gerard Butler and Alan Siegel.
