Lionsgate UK have acquired the distribution rights to A24’S THE IRON CLAW for the UK and Ireland.

THE IRON CLAW depicts the true story of the inseparable Von Erich brothers, who made history in the intensely competitive world of professional wrestling in the early 1980s. Through tragedy and triumph, under the shadow of their domineering father and coach, the brothers seek larger-than-life immortality on the biggest stage in sports.

The film stars Zac Efron (The Greatest Showman, Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile), Jeremy Allen White (The Bear, The Rental), Harris Dickinson (Triangle of Sadness, Scrapper), Holt McCallany (Mindhunter), Maura Tierney (The Affair) and Lily James (Cinderella, Pam & Tommy). Writer-Director Sean Durkin (Dead Ringers, The Nest) directs this all-star cast and THE IRON CLAW marks his fifth feature film.

Lionsgate UK will release THE IRON CLAW in UK and Irish cinemas on Friday 9th February.

Marie Claire Benson Lionsgate UK EVP and Head of the UK Motion Picture Group, said, “THE IRON CLAW is a story of incredible success, family loyalty and sibling rivalry, told by outstanding talent both in front of and behind the camera. A24 are renowned for uncovering compelling and interesting stories, and the team at Lionsgate UK are thrilled to be bringing this powerhouse of a film to UK audiences next year.”

THE IRON CLAW is produced by the team behind THE WONDER, Tessa Ross, Juliette Howell and Angus Lamont for House Productions, Sean Durkin and A24. Executive Producers are Derrin Schlesinger and Harrison Huffman from House Productions, Len Blavatnik and Danny Cohen from Access Entertainment and Eva Yates from BBC Film.
