Al Pacino stars in Billy Knight, which is described as a love letter to cinema, and here are first details of the upcoming film.

Billy Knight is a new film that’s set to trade on Al Pacino’s legendary status as an actor, as two young filmmakers embark on a quest to find the titular character. The official synopsis reads as follows:

Grad school students Alex and Emily attempt to traverse their aspiring careers as filmmakers. Alex is also grappling with the grief of losing his father, a failed screenwriter. The only thing his dad left him was a box of unfinished scripts and a handkerchief with the name “Billy Knight” embroidered on it. They embark on a magical Hollywood adventure to track down Billy Knight all while navigating the line between fiction and reality.

Charlie Heaton and Diana Silvers star as Alex and Emily, with Pacino taking on the title role.

The film is the directorial debut of Alec Griffen Roth, who also wrote the script. Roth that the film is “a love letter to cinema, a fantasy steeped in the history of this great art form. It’s also the tale of two struggling artists, an introspective struggle of a young man trying to find his voice, and discovering what’s important in life. Having the incomparable Al Pacino and the incredible talents Charlie Heaton and Diana Silvers in the film is a dream come true.”

Billy Knight is currently in production, we’ll keep you updated as we hear more.
