Catherine Hardwicke’s next film is Prisoner’s Daughter, and the trailer for it has landed. Right here, in fact…

Catherine Hardwicke burst onto the scene with hard hitting drama Thirteen in 2003. Since then, she has amassed an eclectic filmography that includes the first Twilight film and the Toni Collette and Drew Barrymore tearjerker Miss You Already. Her last film, Mafia Mamma, also starring Collette, was released only a few months ago in the US, though there is still no sign of a UK release.

Her next film is Prisoner’s Daughter. The official synopsis reads as follows…

Prisoner’s Daughter is a gritty, turbulent thriller that follows Max (Brian Cox) who has been diagnosed with terminal cancer and granted a compassionate release after 12 years in prison with the condition he resides with his estranged daughter, Maxine (Kate Beckinsale). As a single mom desperate for income to raise her only son, Ezra (Christopher Convery), she reluctantly agrees but has no interest in reconciliation or allowing Max to have a relationship with her son. To make matters worse, Maxine also has to contend with Ezra’s father, Tyler (Tyson Ritter), an abusive addict who wants more control of his son’s life. As Max seeks one last chance to redeem himself, they must contend with his dark, violent past as it comes back to haunt them

Hardwicke directed the film from a screenplay by Mark Bacci.

Prisoner’s Daughter will be released in the US on 30th June, with a UK release date yet to be announced.
