Lightyear Entertainment has acquired all US rights to Stephen Burke’s critically acclaimed, box-office hit, ‘Maze’.

An initial release date of March 22nd has been set by Lightyear Entertainment president who announced that the film would first make its theatrical release debut in New York. The film will later expand into Los Angeles, Boston, Washington DC and other U.S. markets. The deal was negotiated by sales agent Visit Films.

‘Maze’, written and directed by Stephen Burke, achieved the largest domestic box-office for an Irish film when it was released by Lionsgate in 2017, and broke the million-dollar mark (860,000 euros). In 2018, it was acquired by Netflix for UK and Ireland.

Starring Tom Vaughan-Lawlor (‘Avengers: Infinity War’), Barry Ward (‘Jimmy’s Hall’) and Martin McCann (‘The Survivalist’), ‘Maze’ is based on the true story of the 1983 mass breakout of 38 IRA prisoners from HMP Maze high-security prison in Northern Ireland. 

Produced by Jane Doolan and Brendan Byrne, MAZE is a Mammoth Films and Cyprus Avenue Production, in co-production with Filmgate Films, Sweden and was financed by The Irish Film Board, RTE, BAI, Film Vast, Windmill Lane, Cork regional funding and Irish tax incentives for the film industry.

Maze is set to release in New York on March 22nd, 2019.
