On your marks, get set, GO!  PORK PIE announces cinema release date.

STUDIOCANAL and FOUR KNIGHTS FILM are all geared up to distribute their modern reimagining of the kiwi classic Goodbye Pork Pie to New Zealand Cinemas nationwide.

PORK PIE will be coming to a big screen near you from February 2nd, 2017.


Jon, a charming but out-of-luck novelist, musters the bravery needed to try and win back the love of his life by surprising her at a friend’s wedding. One problem: he's in Auckland and the wedding is in Wellington. After a failed attempt to make the journey south in his bomby Holden, Jon hitches a ride with Luke, a sparky young dude driving a fancy new (and unbeknownst to Jon, stolen) yellow Mini Cooper….thus beginning the most epic road trip of their lives.

Pork Pie stars Dean O’Gorman (The Hobbit, The Almighty Johnsons) James Rolleston (Boy, The Dark Horse), Ashleigh Cummings (Puberty Blues, Tomorrow when the War Began) and is directed by Matt Murphy, son of the original film’s director, Geoff Murphy.

Pork Pie is being produced by Tom Hern (The Dark Horse) and Four Knights Film in association with the New Zealand Film Commission, NZOnAir, Random Films, Augusto, Park Road Post Production, Treehouse Films and Southern Light Films.
