Forget Outlaw King; the true sequel to Braveheart will debut at the Edinburgh International Film Festival, followed by a Nationwide Cinema Release from June 28th. Starring Angus Macfadyen reprising his role as the titular Robert the Bruce, the film has been described as a hard-hitting historical epic covering the turbulent time after William Wallace’s victories depicted in Braveheart.
Below, we have a juicy still of Angus Macfadyen in character as Robert the Bruce, as well as the official press release. Do enjoy.
It’s 1306, Robert the Bruce (Angus Macfadyen: Braveheart) crowns himself King and takes the cause of Scotland’s freedom as his own. But he cannot overcome England’s power: defeated again and again, his army is scattered and Scotland’s nobility abandons him. Hunted, with a price on his head, he finds himself alone and wounded. The cause of freedom seems lost once more.
Hidden secretly in a secluded farm in a clan pledged to England, Robert regains strength and is nursed back to life by a young widow and her orphan children. His determination to do what is right, regardless of the cost, reinvigorates his passion for Scotland’s freedom. He relishes a final chance for glory and revenge!
Also starring Daniel Portman (Game of Thrones) Anna Hutchinson (Cabin in the Woods), Jared Harris (The Crown), Zach McGowan (Black Sails, Agents of S.H.I.E.L.D.), Patrick Fugit (Almost Famous), Kevin McNally (Pirates of the Caribbean) and Emma Kenney (Shameless) and featuring original music from Scottish national treasure, Lulu.
Robert the Bruce picks up where Braveheart left off in a thrilling, brutal and breath-taking fashion.
