‘Salvable’: First Look At Toby Kebbell & Shia LaBeouf In Boxing Crime-Drama; Sales Continuing In Cannes

EXCLUSIVE: Production has wrapped in Wales on boxing crime-drama Salvable, starring Toby Kebbell (For All Mankind), Shia LaBeouf (Fury) and James Cosmo (Game Of Thrones). Above is a first-look image.

Kebbel plays Sal, aka “The Bull”, a washed-up boxer on the brink of 40 who is fighting more than his opponents. With a life of regrets and fading dreams, his chance at redemption comes knocking in the form of illegal boxing, introduced by the sudden return of his old friend, Vince (Labeouf). Sal faces a dilemma: seize the shot at resurgence or preserve the bond with his daughter, Molly (Lord Cassidy).

Producers are Jamie Gamache and Connor O’Hara for Lowkey Films, and Julien Loeffler and James Kermack for Featuristic Films. Casting has been conducted by Aisling Knight of CBA Casting.
