Sam Neill, Richard E. Grant and Jeremy Irvine will star in the historical action-drama THE GUINEA PIG CLUB.

Directed by Roger Donaldson from a script by Mike Riddell. Tim Sanders is producing for Field Theory. Penny Wolf executive produces.

The Guinea Pig Club tells the true story of maverick surgeon Archie McIndoe (Grant), who, at the height of World War II, defied the British establishment with his radiant methods aimed at healing severely burned bodies– and more importantly the tortured souls– of Britain’s heroic Royal Air Force pilots. In so doing, he risked his career, reputation and marriage.

Steinbauer said:

“THE GUINEA PIG CLUB is an uplifting and heroic story, coupled with moments of humor to deliver a thoroughly entertaining experience. We are eager to present this project to our buyers at the Cannes Market. I am so delighted to be collaborating with producers Tim Sanders and the magnificent Roger Donaldson.”

Mimi Steinbauer’s Radiant Films International is handling worldwide rights in Cannes.

Production is set to shoot in New Zealand in early 2018.
