Coming from director Paul Tanter (Jack Falls, The Rise and Fall of a White Collar Hooligan), the latest entry into the British gangster/true crime thriller genre is on the cusp of release here in the UK, and we’ve been given an exclusive clip to share with you.
“In the tradition of RISE OF THE FOOTSOLDIER and BONDED BY BLOOD, this film follows the rise and violent fall of the notorious Essex Boys, one of the most feared criminal gangs in Britain’s history. For the first time the real story is revealed in this film – the drugs, the violence and of course the murders. The real story is the most shocking of all.”
Nick Nevern (The Rise and Fall of a White Collar Hooligan), Robert Cavanagh (The Borgias), Kate Magowan (A Lonely Place to Die), Peter Barrett (GBH), Jay Brown (The Grind), and Simon Phillips (Jack Falls) lead the cast, with BAFTA-nominated Kierston Wareing (Fish Tank, It’s a Free World…) starring alongside.
Tanter is at the helm, directing from a script penned by Stephen Reynolds.
The Fall of the Essex Boys will be released in UK cinemas on 8th February, before arriving on DVD shortly after on 18th February. Whilst we wait, here’s the latest clip with Wareing and Cavanaugh to set the tone.
