Hugh Bonneville

Hugh Bonneville, Hope Davis and Alan Ritchson have joined the cast of THE ROCK OF PILE, an upcoming film set in Jerusalem that follows Time Magazine war correspondent Bob Hastings.

Bonneville will play Hastings as he is assigned to cover events in Jerusalem, where he uncovers a story of three boys of different faiths who are brought together through a shared love of soccer. Davis will play a Time Magazine editor, and Ritchson a Fox News reporter.

London-based Joejack Entertainment will produce with Z Productions a 2-Teams Productions. John Deery  directs and also produces.

Bonneville said:

“From the moment I first read THE ROCK OF PILE, I felt buoyed by its tolerance and understanding. With children from fractured background as our guides, this film acknowledges religious and social differences, while reminding us of our common humanity.”

Deery said:

“I have been lucky enough to surround myself with some great talent to help bring my vision to the screen and, in particular, am delighted to be working with Hugh Bonneville again on this timely and important film>”

Shooting will take place on location in Israel and New York later this year.
