About 6 weeks back we gave you readers a first glance at Sam Riley as Joy Division’s Ian Curtis in Anton Corbijn's feature film directorial debut. For those who need a refreshers' course on the matter simply read below.

CONTROL spans the last few years of Ian Curtis’ life leading up to his tragic suicide in 1980. It charts the struggle between his enduring love for his wife and his burgeoning relationship with his girlfriend, his decimating bouts with epilepsy, his incredible talent and his all consuming performances with Joy Division. The film expands on Deborah Curtis’ book ‘Touching from a Distance’, a personal account of her life with Ian Curtis. To achieve a fuller account of the man and his life, script writer Matt Greenhalgh spoke to those closest to Curtis including Annik Honore, who was in a relationship with Ian Curtis at the time of his death. Previously, Annik had declined to discuss the relationship. The cast includes Sam Riley (Ian Curtis), Samantha Morton (Deborah Curtis), Alexandra Maria Lara (Annik Honore), James Anthony Pearson (Bernard Sumner), Joe Anderson, (Hooky), Harry Treadaway (Stephen Morris), Toby Kebbell (Rob Gretton) and Craig Parkinson (Tony Wilson).
