The film follows a crime boss who, after the death of his girlfriend, finds himself charged with taking care of her seven-year-old daughter. Gleeson will play the boss, Kevin Darcy, whose short temper makes it difficult to balance a gangland war with being a better father. With the help of the Hell’s Angels, contract killers and a drug dealing circus clown, Darcy must find a way to resolve the situation with his daughter in tow.
Gleeson most recently starred in last year’s period films In The Heart Of The Sea and Suffragette, and is best known to younger audiences for his role as “Mad-Eye” Moody in the Harry Potter films. He will star in this year’s Assassin’s Creed, based on the popular video game.
