“My Son” Starring James McAvoy Will Premiere Exclusively on Peacock September 15
Peacock has acquired the rights to “My Son” from STX Films and will premiere the missing-person thriller film, starring James McAvoy and Claire Foy on their streaming platform on Wednesday, September 15. Driving in the heart of the Highlands, Edmond Murray receives a call from his ex-wife, in tears. Their 7-year-old son went missing from a campsite. Soon it becomes clear that the child was kidnapped and the parents give way to despair.
In MY SON, when a man’s (McAvoy) only son goes missing, he travels to the town where his ex-wife (Foy) lives in search of answers. To play a man whose life is clouded by mystery, McAvoy was not given a script or dialogue – as was the case in the French film; the character was aware of basic aspects of his story, and improvised and reacted to each moment as it unfolds. The rest of the cast and crew were aware of the scenes. Christian Carion directed the original film the same way, with his lead star improvising the role.
MY SON is directed by Christian Carion, who also directed the French film, and was written by Carion and Laure Irrman. The film is produced by Carion, Laure Irrman for Une Hirondelle, Vincent Maraval and Brahim Chioua for Wild Bunch International, Rebecca O’Brien for Sixteen Films, and Marc Butan for Mad River Pictures.
My Son premieres on Peacock on September 15.
