“The Walking Dead’s” Jon Bernthal, Richard Armitage and Tom Holland have joined the cast of the Irish action-thriller Pilgrimage, which will be directed by Brendan Muldowney this spring in Ireland and Belgium, Bloody Disgusting learned.
“Set in 13th century Ireland, Pilgrimage follows a small group of monks as they undertake a treacherous pilgrimage to escort their monastery’s holiest relic to Rome. But, as the true material, political and religious significance of the relic is revealed, the group’s journey becomes increasingly fraught with danger. Ultimately, the faith that binds the men together threatens to be the very same thing that will tear them apart.”
The film was written by Jamie Hannigan and will be produced by Conor Barry and John Keville of Dublin-based production outfit Savage Productions and Benoit Roland of Wrong Men North. XYZ will executive produce.
The film is scheduled to commence production in April 2015 and shoot for over seven weeks on the West Coast of Ireland and the Ardennes Region of Belgium.
