Protagonist Pictures has released a first-look image from psychological thriller “Keepers,”
which it is presenting to international buyers at the Cannes Film
Market. The film, which has just concluded its six-week shoot, stars Gerard Butler, Peter Mullan and Connor Swindells as a trio of lighthouse keepers pitted against each other on a remote Scottish island.
“Keepers” is the feature debut of Danish director Kristoffer Nyholm,
who recently worked on the BBC and FX’s “Taboo,” starring Tom Hardy. He
was also a regular director on hit Danish crime drama “The Killing,” for
which he was nominated for a BAFTA television award. Nyholm received a
second BAFTA nomination for his work on 2015 miniseries “The Enfield
Haunting,” starring Timothy Spall.
Inspired by a real-life unsolved mystery, “Keepers” was co-written by
Celyn Jones and Joe Bone. It tells the story of three lighthouse
keepers arriving on a remote, uninhabited island for a six-week shift,
who discover something potentially life-changing that isn’t theirs to
keep. Soon the three are locked in a tense battle for survival, fed by
isolation and paranoia, as personal greed replaces loyalty.
It was shot on on location in Dumfries and Galloway, using three
lighthouses across the region to depict the imposing, solitary building
at the heart of the story. (source)
I Implore anyone who hasn’t seen The Bridge, a Danish/Swedish crime drama series, to do so. Definitely worth the watch and any designer will appreciate the abundance of classic scandinavian design featured throughout
