According to The Hollywood Reporter, ‘Ironbark’ will now be released under the title of ‘The Courier’ in the US, with the studio expecting it to hit theaters across the country on August, 28th. Read more details below:
Lionsgate and Roadside Attractions have set an Aug. 28, 2020, theatrical release for The Courier, starring Benedict Cumberbatch.
The Cold War drama — previously titled Ironbark — made its debut at the 2020 Sundance Film Festival.
Directed by Dominic Cooke from a script by Tim O’Connor, The Courier is based on the true story of Greville Wynne (Cumberbatch), an unassuming businessman recruited to help end the Cuban Missile Crisis who forms a dangerous relationship with a Soviet intelligence officer (Merab Ninidze).
“Theaters have indicated gradual openings this summer, with health and safety guiding the way. If everything proceeds favorably, we feel the true spy thriller The Courier, with a must-see performance by Benedict Cumberbatch, is just the type of film that will have audiences excited to return to their local cinemas in late August,” said Roadside co-presidents Howard Cohen and Eric d’Arbeloff in announcing the release date.
The film is a 42 M&P, SunnyMarch and FilmNation Entertainment production. Rachel Brosnahan and Jessie Buckley also star in the film.
Hopefully we might get a trailer soon!
