'A Long Way Down', tells the story of a group of strangers who coincidentally meet on the top of a London skyscraper on New Year's Eve where they had individually gone to commit suicide.
Starring a stellar cast including former 'James Bond' Pierce Brosnan, 'Breaking Bad' star Aaron Paul, Sam Neill, Tony Collette, Imogen Poots and Rosamund Pike. 'A Long Way Down' is the fourth Hornby novel to be made into a film and we're absolutely delighted, having created the title sequence for 'High Fidelity', to announce that we have been awarded the titles for Pascal Chaumeil's latest film.
'A Long Way Down' has been produced by Academy Award nominees for 'An Education' Finola Dwyer and Amanda Posey, through their company Wildgaze Films and has been financed by BBC Films and DCM Productions. Head of BBC Films Christine Langan commented:
Nick Hornby's challenging yet heartwarming novel is safe in the hands of dynamic screenwriter Jack Thorne, dazzling director Pascal Chaumeil and accomplished producers, Finola Dwyer and Amanda Posey. The alchemy is further reflected in the wonderfully talented, funny and brilliant cast they have brought together for this highly original movie and we are extremely proud to be part of it.
Work for us starts immediately and we are excited to get going. We look forward to working with the team and sharing with you our progress as we go... onwards and upward.
