Based on an original screenplay from Knight (Eastern Promises, Dirty Pretty Things) Locke is the story of one man's life unraveling in a tension-fuelled ninety minute race against time. Ivan Locke has the perfect family, his dream job, and tomorrow should be the crowning moment of his career. But one phone call will force him to make a decision that will put it all on the line.
Locke begins production in London, England later this month. Paul Webster and Guy Heeley will produce.
