Brie Larson’s Action-Thriller ‘Free Fire’ Gets Release Date

A24 has set a March 17 release date in the U.S. rights to Ben Wheatley’s action-thriller “Free Fire,” starring Brie Larson, Sharlto Copley, Armie Hammer, Cillian Murphy and Jack Reynor.

Larson won the best actress Oscar on Feb. 28 for “Room,” which was also released by A24.

Martin Scorsese is exec producing “Free Fire,” which also stars Sam Riley and Noah Taylor. Wheatley is directing from a script he co-wrote with Amy Jump.

Andrew Starke is producing. Additional executive producers include Sikelia’s Emma Tillinger-Koskoff, Reno Antoniades, Film4’s David Kosse and Sam Lavender, along with Ben Roberts and Lizzie Francke from the British Film Institute.

“Free Fire” centers around an arms deal that goes spectacularly and explosively wrong. Larson will portray a woman who has brokered a meeting in a deserted warehouse between two Irishmen and a gang selling them a stash of guns. But when shots are fired during the handover, complete pandemonium ensues.

Here is the official red band trailer –
