Homeland’s Rupert Friend will be making his directorial debut in this film. Friend issued the following statement:

Ultimately, this is a story about a deep love between two ferocious talents, each brave enough to admit their fears to the other, and so spur one another to greatness. It is a story about fighting for what you believe in, and a film that will make you question what strength really is.
