Starline’s partner and director of acquisitions, Piers Nightingale, who originally came across the project at the Galway Film Fleadh last year, said: “With ‘Harry Brown’ Gary Young showed exceptional talent as a writer and, now doubling up as director, ‘Henry’ promises to be every bit as distinctive.” 
Rochester-Henry, Nice One Film’s CEO, said: “‘Henry’ promises to thrill and touch the audience with exceptionally written twists to keep you on the edge of your seat.”
Casting details remain pending while cameras are set to roll in September.
