Today we have a new Gunpowder trailer from HBO. The three-part thriller based on the real-life 17th century events that lead to Guy Fawkes Day will debut on Monday, December 18. You can watch the new Gunpowder trailer in the player below.
In Gunpowder, Harington will star as Robert Catesby (the 30 year-old Warwickshire gentleman who was the driving force behind the gunpowder plot), alongside Peter Mullan as Father Garnet, Mark Gatiss as the Spymaster Robert Cecil, and Liv Tyler as Ann Vaux.
They are joined by Edward Holcroft (Kingsman) as Thomas Wintour, Catesby’s friend and co-conspirator, with Shaun Dooley (Broadchurch) as Sir William Wade, Lieutenant of The Tower and Cecil’s right-hand man. Tom Cullen (Downton Abbey) takes on the role of Guy Fawkes.
Robert Emms (Happy Valley) will play Father John Gerard, the firebrand young priest who joins with the plotters, whilst Derek Riddell (The Missing) is King James, the subject of the plot itself. Sian Webber (EastEnders) plays the devout and fearless Lady Dorothy Dibdale, with David Bamber (Tina And Bobby) appearing as Cecil’s great rival The Earl of Northumberland, and Kevin Eldon (The Halcyon) as Sir Joseph Hawksworth, Justice of the Peace. The acclaimed Spanish actor Pedro Casablanc will play the Constable of Castile.
Gunpowder was developed for the BBC by Ronan Bennett, Harington and Daniel West. It was written by Bennett and directed by J Blakeson. It was produced by Kudos in association with Thriker Films. Filming is currently underway.
The Gunpowder Plot was a plan to blow up the House of Lords during the State Opening of England’s Parliament on November 5, 1605, which was run by Robert Catesby alongside a number of conspirators including the well-known Guy Fawkes.
