First Look Image and Cast Announced for Searchlight Pictures' 'See How They Run'

July 29, 2021

Searchlight Pictures announced the full cast and crew for the recently completed feature production "See How They Run," directed by BAFTA award-winning director Tom George ("This Country") from producers Damian Jones and Gina Carter, based on an original screenplay by Mark Chappell. Shot in historic London locations earlier this year including the Dominion Theatre on Tottenham Court Road, St. Martin’s Theatre in the West End, and the Old Vic Theatre in Waterloo, "See How They Run" features Sam Rockwell, Saoirse Ronan, Adrien Brody and David Oyelowo as part of an ensemble of acclaimed stage and screen talent. "See How They Run" will debut in theaters in 2022.

In the West End of 1950s London, plans for a movie version of a smash-hit play come to an abrupt halt after a pivotal member of the crew is murdered. When world-weary Inspector Stoppard (Sam Rockwell) and eager rookie Constable Stalker (Saoirse Ronan) take on the case, the two find themselves thrown into a puzzling whodunit within the glamorously sordid theater underground, investigating the mysterious homicide at their own peril.

“We have been enamored with Tom George and his work with the BBC for years,” said Searchlight heads of film production Katie Goodson-Thomas and DanTram Nguyen. “His knack for bringing stellar performances from an ensemble cast across multiple genres made him the perfect choice to lead the talented team of 'See How They Run.' We are pleased to welcome several members of the Searchlight family back to the fold like Saoirse, Sam, Adrien and David for this entertaining whodunit.”

“Making my debut feature with a company like Searchlight and this incredible cast has been a total dream,” said George. “I’m so excited to bring this thrilling, smart, funny murder mystery to audiences. Doing so with the company behind such brilliant ensemble films as 'Jojo Rabbit,' 'Birdman' and 'The Grand Budapest Hotel' has really been the perfect fit.”
