Guy Ritchie's The Covenant
From UK production company Toff Guy Films, this ambitious project is co-written, co-produced and directed by renowned British director Guy Ritchie (Snatch, Sherlock Holmes). Supported by fellow Brits Emily Beecham (Daphne) and Jonny Lee Miller (Trainspotting), the film will arrest audiences with its high-octane action sequences and poignant exploration of friendship.
In a war zone, Afghan interpreter Ahmed (Dar Salim) goes to unprecedented lengths to save the life of US Army Sergeant John Kinley (Jake Gyllenhaal). Feeling indebted to him, Kinley returns to Afghanistan to try and grant Ahmed and his family the safe passage to the US they were promised – he just needs to reach them before the Taliban does.
