McAvoy plays a detective who pursues an old foe played by Strong.

Welcome To The Punch is an ingenious action thriller featuring some of the best actors working today including James MacAvoy, Mark Strong and Andrea Riseborough,” Sundance Selects/IFC Films president Jonathan Sehring said. “Eran Creevy made a huge mark with Shifty but he’s really arrived with Welcome To The Punch.”

“With IFC Films’ experience and impressive track record, it’s a perfect home for Welcome To The Punch,” Woodrow said. “Filmmaker Eran Creevy has made an action packed, smart film and we look forward to its release.” 

Sundance Selects/IFC Films’ director of acquisitions and productions Jeff Deutchman negotiated the deal with CAA on behalf of Worldview. IM Global has been selling international rights at recent markets.
