Pugilist Drama ‘Jawbone’ With Johnny Harris Hits DVD In January

jawbone9


Jawbone, a boxing drama starring Johnny Harris, Ian McShane (Deadwood, American Gods) and Ray Winstone (Sexy Beast, Edge of Darkness) hits DVD, Digital and On Demand January 23 via Lionsgate.

The narrative centers on Jimmy McCabe (Harris), a former prizefighter who reenters the ring in an unlicensed match that could have severe repercussions. Winstone plays Jimmy’s former trainer and gym owner with McShane co-starring as an acquaintance who helps the pugilist secure the fight. Jawbone comes from a personal place, as Harris, a former amateur boxer who struggled with alcoholism, penned the script. Before his starring role in Jawbone, Harris carved out a solid career as a character actor (he worked with McShane and Winstone in the 2012 flick Snow White and the Huntsman).

Special features on the disc include a making of featurette.
