Son of a Gun secures distribution in major global terrioties

Brenton Thwaites

Son of a Gun from writer/director Julius Avery is set for theatres in the US and around the world.

The film has secured distribution across Europe, including France, the Netherlands, Spain, Hungary and Poland, South and Central America, the Middle East, Japan, Indonesia, South Korea, Thailand, Canada and the U.K. 

It will be released in Australia and New Zealand by Hopscotch Entertainment One. 

American film distributor A24 picked up the US distribution rights to the Australian crime thriller at the Cannes film market in May. 

Though the film marks a feature film directorial debut for the Western Australian director, this is Avery's second coup at Cannes, his short film Jerrycan won the Cannes jury prize at the festival in 2008. 

The film sees rising Australian star, Brenton Thwaites, play opposite Golden Globes Nominee Ewan McGregor and centers on the story of Australia's public enemy number one, Brendan Lynch (McGregor), and his relationship with JR (Thwaites), his young protégé.
