Real life stories often make for a gripping cinematic experience and with any luck, director Toa Fraser has done the same justice to the forthcoming 6 Days starring Jamie Bell. To give us a small glimpse into this project four new character posters have been released.
The feature, which chronicles the events that took place during the 1980 Iranian Embassy siege in London, focuses on the perspective of three people who played a vital part in the events at the time. The hostage negotiator Max Vernon (played by Mark Strong), the man responsible for communicating with the terrorists inside the building; news reporter Kate Adie (Abbie Cornish), who was covering the events for the BBC and Rusty Firmin (Jamie Bell), leader of one of the SAS assault teams that entered the Iranian Embassy to end the siege, all of which are depicted plus one, the faceless SAS Operative in the character posters below.
6 Days is a definitive inside account of a historic military operation, where for the first time ever the public witnessed the incredible bravery of the Special Air Service (SAS) in action, and it’s certainly a far cry from Bell’s acting debut back in 2000 as Billy in Billy Elliot and has grown up on our screens in films such as the 2005 King Kong and 2015’s Fantastic Four as Ben Grimm aka The Thing proving that this young talent is certainly no one-hit wonder.
6 Days will release across the UK, Ireland 4th August 2017.
6 Days Official Synopsis
In April 1980, six armed gunmen stormed the Iranian Embassy in Princes Gate, London, taking 26 people inside hostage. Over the next six days a tense standoff took place, all the while a group of highly trained soldiers from the SAS prepared for a raid, the likes of which the world had never seen before.
