First Look At Richard Armitage In The “Pilgrimage”- A hard day’s journey for a knight (and some monks)

Cast your mind back to March, when it was reported that Richard Armitage was part of the cast for medieval thriller Pilgrimage. As the film has just wrapped, there is pictorial evidence of the man himself, alongside co-stars Jon Bernthal and Tom Holland in new stills supplied via The Hollywood Reporter.


The images – pilgrimages? We’ll get our coat – show the actors as 13th century monks who must escort their monastery’s holiest relic to Rome and find their faith severely tested en route when they discover that the item is not quite what they thought. And it attracts plenty of unwanted attention, which pressures them into joining forces with a knight (Armitage, who’s probably had his fill of armour for a while after the Hobbit trilogy and now this).

Bernthal plays mute member of the holy order who joined the monastery to make penance for his violent past, while Holland is a pious young novice. Brendan Muldowney called the shots on a production that ranged between Ireland and Belgium, working from a script by Jamie Hannigan. There’s no word on a release date yet, but footage from the film will be screened to potential buyers at the Toronto Film Festival and the American Film Market. We’ll take three frames! That’s how it works, right?
