Charlie Hunnam and Jack O’Connell Star in Director Max Winkler’s Gripping Drama
A gripping and moving story about the bonds of brotherhood, JUNGLELAND arrives on Premium Video-On-Demand and for purchase on Digital November 10, 2020 from Paramount Home Entertainment. Vertical Entertainment will release the film in over 100 theatres beginning November 6.
Produced by Romulus Entertainment in association with Scott Free Productions and Big Red Films, and directed and co-written by Max Winkler (Flower), JUNGLELAND is a love story between two brothers whose bond is tested as they hustle and scrape towards their slice of the American Dream. Stanley (Charlie Hunnam, “Sons of Anarchy”) and Lion (Jack O’Connell, Unbroken) are brothers struggling to stay relevant in the underground world of bare-knuckle boxing. When Stanley fails to pay back a dangerous crime boss (Jonathan Majors, “Lovecraft Country”), they’re forced to deliver an unexpected traveler (Jessica Barden, “The End of the F***ing World”) as they journey across the country for a high stakes fighting tournament. While Stanley trains Lion for the fight of his life, a series of events threaten to tear the brothers apart, but their love for one another and belief in a better life keep them going in this gripping drama that proves family pulls no punches.
Winkler previously directed Flower, starring Zoey Deutch, Adam Scott, and Kathryn Hahn, and he made his feature directorial debut with Ceremony, starring Uma Thurman, Michael Angarano, and Lee Pace. Upcoming, Winkler is adapting and will direct adventure photographer Ben Moon’s memoir Denali: A Man, a Dog, and the Friendship of a Lifetime, which will re-team him with Charlie Hunnam.
JUNGLELAND premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival.
