Getting out of the gulag was the easy part. Trying to survive the land afterwards is the hard part. But by gum, Ed Harris and Colin Farrell are gonna give it a shot anyway in Peter Weir’s survival drama “No Way Back”. Take a gander at 30-plus images and a new poster for the movie below.
Inspired by Slavomir Rawicz’s acclaimed novel, “The Long Walk: The True Story of a Trek to Freedom” as well as other real life accounts, six time Oscar nominated director Peter Weir’s (“Witness”, “Master And Commander”, & “Dead Poet’s Society”) “The Way Back” is a remarkable adventure story chronicling the escape of a small group of multi-national prisoners from a Siberian gulag in 1940 and their epic life affirming journey over thousands of miles across five hostile countries.
Starring Ed Harris, Jim Sturgess, Saoirse Ronan, Colin Farrell and directed by Peter Weir.
Look for it in early 2011 in limited release.
