Studiocanal, Blueprint Pictures and BBC Films have released first images of Colin Firth and Rachel Weisz in their previously untitled Colin Crowhurst drama, which is now called ‘The Mercy’.

The Mercy

James Marsh’s (The Theory Of Everything) feature, set to open in 2017, is based on the true story of Crowhurst (Firth) and his attempt to win the first non-stop single-handed round-the-world yacht race in 1968. Weisz plays Crowhurst’s wife Clare.
