Remaking a classic like “Papillon” certainly doesn’t sound like the wisest idea on paper. The iconic 1973 film starring Steve McQueen and Dustin Hoffman is all-timer, which makes you wonder at the hubris of trying to create lightning in a bottle twice. But we’ll find out at the Toronto International Film Festival is this redo is folly or not.
Charlie Hunnam and “Mr. Robot” star Rami Malek take the lead roles in this version, which has a script from “Prisoners” writer Aaron Guzikowski, and Danish director Michael Noer (“R“) behind the camera. Apparently, this will be a contemporary take on the based-on-a-true-story thriller about a man unjustly convicted of murder who enlists the help of a counterfeiter to break him out of a South American jail. Hunnam will be taking the McQueen role, with Malek in Hoffman’s shoes.
TIFF runs from September 7-17.

Thanks to Aurora for the shoot photos.
Hello, hello! So as we all know Charlie was literally all over the place these past few months while doing promotion for his films Lost City of Z and King Arthur: Legend of the Sword which are both still in theaters (I think!). And because life isn’t very accommodating I’m only just now adding all the scans and interviews Charlie was featured in from a variety of magazines which were published in the past few months to the gallery.
Lastly, I’d like to thank my friend Alikat and site visitor Tammy for donating scans!
I’ve added some more outtakes of Charlie from his Men’s Health and New York Times photoshoots. In addition to those, I’ve also added his shoots for King Arthur and BuzzFeed.
Charlie was visited São Paulo, Brazil during the month of May as he promoted his film King Arthur: Legend of the Sword. You can view the photos from the events and his interview with late night host Danilo Gentili as well below.
