Cox will also star in the project that is being described as a “love letter” to Scotland.
It’s never too late to get started. Succession star and Emmy-winning actor Brian Cox is set to make his feature film directorial debut at 75 years old! Cox will both be starring in and directing Glenrothan, which is said to be a “love letter” to Scotland, Cox’s homeland.
The film will tell the story of two estranged brothers who last spoke on the day of their mother’s funeral when, after a violent exchange with their father, the younger of the two brothers left their home to move to America. After, forty years the brothers finally reunite, back on Scottish soil in an effort to save the family business: the Glenrothan Distillery. Glenrothan is said to be a story of family and forgiveness.
