IFC Films Takes On 'Pierrepoint' Hangman Drama[Tuesday, October 18th, 2005]
IFC Films has bought the rights to director Adrian Shergold's Pierrepoint, says the Hollywood Reporter.
The feature stars Timothy Spall as Britain's most prolific hangman, Albert Pierrepoint, who executed 450 people and became a minor celebrity before resigning in 1956.
"Adrian Shergold has made a remarkable and bold statement," said IFC's Jonathan Sehring. "('Pierrepoint') may be an English film, but challenges what is one of the seminal conflicts in the U.S. today."
