The cast of the upcoming coming of age film One Winter directed by Paul Middleditch and Hamish Bennett has been announced. Julian Dennison of Godzilla vs. Kong and Deadpool 2 fame is set to star in the lead role alongside Cinderella-fame Minnie Driver, James Rolleston, and Erana James.
One Winter is set in 1981 New Zealand, and follows the story of a South African rugby team that sets off protests across the nation against apartheid and racism. Josh Waaka (Dennison), a 17-year-old of mixed race is forced to stand up for not just himself, but for his family.
One Winter is based on a story by Keith Aberdein, Sonia Whiteman, and Middleditch, with Bennett and Whiteman adapting the screenplay.
The film is set to start principal photography in New Zealand this summer and will have Blue Fox Entertainment launch international sales for the film in Cannes.
One Winter does not yet have a release date; Blue Fox Entertainment is presenting the film.
