$1 Million Deal for Richard Armitage’s film Pilgrimage to be released in U.S., February 12, 2017 Gratiana Lovelace (Post #1041)

I cannot contain my excitement at the news that the exquisitely talented British actor Richard Armitage’s film “Pilgrimage” is to be released in the U.S. via a $1 million distribution deal as announced by The Sunday Times (Thanks to Julie K for the link!) and as reported earlier by The Hollywood Reporter   (image below via the Irish Film preview).   That is real money.  So hopefully, it will have a wide release!


The “Pilgrimage” film is about 13th century monks traveling from Ireland to Rome to deliver their most prized religious relic.  What could go wrong?  Right?

But there are forces conspiring against them–with Richard Armitage being one of those forces in portraying a nobleman character named Raymond de Merville (in the above image at right).

More than those snippets of a plot has not yet been revealed.  The film is directed by Brendan Muldowney and also stars Tom Holland and Jon Bernthal.


Below are listed some of my other blog essays about Richard Armitage starring in “Pilgrimage”!

So might we see “Pilgrimage” slated for release during the early or mid Summer blockbusters?  Or, perhaps, “Pilgrimage” will be released in the Fall/Autumn, hoping to garner late Oscar buzz?  We shall see.

In the meantime, let me share again  Fernanda Matias’ lovely “Pilgrimage” wallpaper that she made a few years ago:


P.S. Hope you have a lovely Sunday!  And be sure to check back here on Valentine’s Day, Tuesday, February 14th for a special essay.


About Gratiana Lovelace

Gratiana Lovelace is my nom de plume for my creative writing and blogging. I write romantic stories in different sub genres. The stories just tumble out of me. My resurgence in creative writing occurred when I viewed the BBC miniseries of Elizabeth Gaskell's novel North & South in February 2010. The exquisitely talented British actor portraying the male lead John Thornton in North & South--Richard Crispin Armitage--became my unofficial muse. I have written over 50 script stories about love--some are fan fiction, but most are original stories--that I am just beginning to share with others on private writer sites, and here on my blog. And as you know, my blog here is also relatively new--since August 2011. But, I'm having fun and I hope you enjoy reading my blog essays and my stories. Cheers! Grati ;-> upd 12/18/11
