Filming has just wrapped on That Good Night and the first image of John Hurt has been released to mark the end of principal photography.
That Good Night is a big screen adaptation of the play of the same name by NJ Crisp and sees Eric Styles in the director's chair.
Styles has brought us movies such as True True Lie and Miss Conception and That Good Night is his first feature film since Legendary back in 2013.
John Hurt is set to take on the central role of Ralph, a terminally ill former screenwriter and is joined on the cast list by Charles Dance, Sofia Helin, Erin Richard, Max Brown, Noah Jupe, and Joana Santos.
That Good Night has been filming for the last five weeks on the Algarve coastline of Portugal as well as Tavira, Praia dos Olhos de Agua and the region around the capital city, Faro.
Ralph, a once-famous screenwriter, is in his seventies and terminally ill. He has two final missions in life: to ensure he doesn't become a burden to his younger devoted wife, Anna, and to be reconciled to his long-abandoned son, Michael, as he goes 'into that good night'.
But Ralph wrecks all hope of reconciliation when he picks a fight with Michael's girlfriend, Cassie. Later, alone, Ralph receives the sinister and mysterious 'Visitor' whose services he has hired to provide the painless ending to his life. But The Visitor plays a devastating trick.
Set in their luxury villa in the remote hilltops that surround the Algarve coastline of Portugal, this bittersweet drama bravely tackles issues of assisted dying, nature and the meaning of life and death. Based on the hugely successful stage play by NJ Crisp, its brilliant and witty arguments address issues that we traditionally avoid.
That Good Night is currently in post-production and is set to hit the big screen in 2017.
