Gerard Butler (London Has Fallen, How to Train Your Dragon, Coriolanus, 300), Peter Mullan (Tyrannosaur, War Horse, Trainspotting) and Connor Swindells star in the psychological thriller Keepers, inspired by a true unsolved local mystery.

Kristoffer Nyholm, whose TV credits include the classic first series of The Killing from Denmark’s DR, hit UK miniseries The Enfield Haunting and Taboo starring Tom Hardy for FX and BBC, will direct KEEPERS from a script by BAFTA Cymru Nominated screenwriter Celyn Jones (co-writer and star of Set Fire to the Stars) and actor/writer Joe Bone (Castles in the Sky) .

On an uninhabited island 20 miles from the rugged Scottish coast, three lighthouse keepers arrive for their six week shift. As Thomas (Mullan), James (Butler) and Donald (Swindells) settle into their usual, solitary routines, something unexpected and potentially life-changing occurs- they stumble upon something that isn’t theirs to keep. Where did it come from? Who does it belong to? A boat appears in the distance that might hold the answer to these questions… What follows is a tense battle for survival as personal greed replaces loyalty – and fed by isolation and paranoia, three honest men are led down a path to destruction.

Kristoffer Nyholm had this to say about the cast, “I feel incredibly fortunate to have Gerard Butler, Peter Mullan and Connor Swindells leading the cast of KEEPERS- great actors who are deeply committed to this project, and who will go the distance. These men are the strong and unique characters at the heart of this story, which is a journey from innocence to animalistic survival. KEEPERS was great to read, will be an adventure to make, and terrifying to watch!”

KEEPERS is produced by Andy Evans, Ade Shannon and Sean Marley for Mad as Birds, Butler and Alan Siegel for G-BASE and Brian Oliver for Cross Creek Pictures. The project was brought into Cross Creek by Jason Seagraves who will serve as Executive Producer. The film is cast and co-produced by Reg Poerscout-Edgerton.
