Fresh after their own awards ceremony, Empire have released a brand new clip from Cemetery Junction which comes from the minds of Ricky Gervais and Stephan Merchant. We were lucky enough to catch up with Stephen last night at the Empire / Jameson Awards and you can see our interview with him here.
As well as Ricky Gervias and Stephen Merchant, Cemetery Junction stars Ralph Fiennes (The Reader, Schindler’s List), Emily Watson (Synecdoche, New York, Breaking the Waves) and MATTHEW GOODE (Watchmen, Brideshead Revisited) feature alongside stars-of-the-future Christian Cooke, Felicity Jones, Tom Hughes and Jack Doolan.
It’s scheduled for release 14th April.
Synopsis: In 1970s England, three blue-collar friends spend their days joking, drinking, fighting and chasing girls.
Freddie (Christian Cooke) wants to leave their working-class world but cool, charismatic Bruce (Tom Hughes) and lovable loser Snork (Jack Doolan) are happy with life the way it is.
When Freddie gets a new job as a door-to-door salesman and bumps into his old school sweetheart Julie (Felicity Jones), the gang are forced to make choices that will change their lives forever.
