A tale of triumph: The story behind "Giant"

Directed by Rowan Athale and with a script that's been years in the making, 'Giant' delves into the gritty, inspiring journey of Prince Naseem "Naz" Hamed (played by Amir El-Masry), from his humble beginnings in Sheffield to becoming a world boxing champion. Under the guidance of "Ingle," a former steelworker turned trainer, Naz's flamboyant style and unparalleled skill shot him to stardom, challenging racism and adversity along the way.

The chemistry between Brosnan and El-Masry is electric, promising viewers an unforgettable cinematic experience. As Brosnan embraces the fighting spirit, fists curled and ready for action, it's clear that 'Giant' is more than just a sports movie—it's a story of heart, determination, and the unbreakable bond between a fighter and his mentor.

Shooting in Yorkshire: A homecoming for a hero's tale

Originally slated for Malta, the production of 'Giant' has found its home in Leeds and Yorkshire, thanks to the UK's new Independent Film Tax Credit. This move not only brings authenticity to the film but also shines a spotlight on the region's rich boxing history and the legacy of the late Brendan Ingle, who passed away in 2018 but left an indelible mark on the sport.

As Brosnan steps out in his blue tracksuit, transforming into "Brendan Ingle," and Amir El-Masry channels the spirit of Prince Naseem, 'Giant' is poised to captivate audiences with its raw emotion, thrilling action, and the incredible true story of two men who dared to dream big. Get ready to cheer, cry, and be inspired by this powerhouse film that's set to redefine the boxing movie genre.
