The first trailer has been released for Never Too Late.
Never Too Late is a new comedy from director Mark Lamprell (A Few Less Men) and boasts a dream cast including James Cromwell, Dennis Waterman, Shane Jacobson, Jackie Weaver, Jack Thompson and Roy Billing.
Here’s the synopsis:
It has been a long time since Caine, Bronson, Angus and Wendell, AKA, ‘The Chain Breakers’, escaped the torturous Vietnamese POW camp. They now find themselves sharing a new prison, The Hogan Hills Retirement Home for Returned Veterans.
Each of the boys has an unrealised dream they want to achieve before it’s too late. So, once again they band together to devise a plan to escape this new hell. But the rules of engagement have changed, in fact, they can’t even remember what they were and that’s half the problem.
Never Too Late is said to be a cross between Grumpy Old Men and The Great Escape.
“What a joy it was to make Never Too Late and what privilege it was to work with such a stellar cast: James Cromwell, Jack Thompson, Dennis Waterman, Roy Billing and the glorious Jacki Weaver,” Lamprell told Cinema Australia. “It wasn’t always plain sailing. We had 20 days to shoot what was essentially a 30 day script but these amazing actors and our extraordinary crew pulled together like a tight-knit family.”
Never Too Late was written by screenwriter and crime novelist Luke Preston and produced by Antony I Ginnane (Patrick, Turkey Shoot) and David Lightfoot (Wolf Creek).
The film will be released in Australia by Richard Becker and Robert Slaviero from R&R Films.
Never Too Late will also screen at the Young at Heart film festival in capital cities later this month before a star tour and premiere in April. Details here.
