Black and Blue Films and Press on Features have sent us the brand new poster and synopsis for their latest movie, ‘The Rise and Fall of A White Collar Hooligan’. The movie has just finished filming and we’re told the movie is ‘a blisteringly violent hooligan picture in the tradition of The Football Factory, Green Street and Rise of The Footsoldier’.
The Rise and Fall of A White Collar Hooligan stars Nick Nevern (Adulthood, Terry), Simon Phillips (Jack Falls), Roland Manookian (The Football Factory, The Business), Billy Murray (Essex Boys, Rise of the Footsoldier), Rebecca Ferdinando (Bonded By Blood), Charlie Bond (Strippers vs Werewolves), Ricci Harnett (Rise of the Footsoldier) and is directed by Paul Tanter who wrote all of the Jack Falls series of movies as well as directing the most recent and is really going from strength to strength.
I’ve placed the synopsis below for your reading pleasure and you can scroll down to see both the UK Quad and UK One Sheet for the movie which will be with us 2012. Keep your eyes peeled for a trailer which we’re hoping to see in the not too distant future.
Synopsis: Casual football hooligan Mike Jacobs is going nowhere in life when he meets old friend Eddie Hill at a football match that turns nasty off the pitch. Under Eddie’s tutelage he soon finds himself inducted into the world of credit card fraud, where organised gangs withdraw hundreds of thousands of pounds from cash machines every night. As Mike becomes seduced by the money and women that come with his new lifestyle, the dangers increase and he soon finds events spiralling beyond his control.
Based on a true story, The Rise and Fall of a White Collar Hooligan follows the journey of a man tempted by the trappings of power and is the first feature film to address the huge criminal industry of credit card fraud.
