JOURNEY'S END will be the most significant film made during the WW1 Centenary. The stage play is beloved and renowned across the UK and around the world and has huge prestige and pedigree.
Fluidity Films is working with HRH The Duke of York, Sir Anthony Seldon and many other individuals and organisations to create the totemic film for the Centenary from which will flow education, history, culture and, of course, remembrance.
It was written by war veteran RC Sherriff in 1928, ten years after the Armistice at a time when public opinion was daring to question the purpose of the Great War. He had caught the mood of the nation. Journey’s End opened in the West End with Laurence Olivier playing Stanhope and it continued to play to packed houses for years afterwards.
Saul Dibb directs with Fluidity's Simon Reade and Guy de Beaujeu producing. Simon has also written the screenplay. Andy stars alongside Sam Claflin, Paul Bettany and Asa Butterfield with further cast including Toby Jones, Tom Sturridge and Stephen Graham.
