The-Rise-of-the-Krays-Teaser-ArtworkRonnie and Reggie Kray were two of the most notorious gangsters alive in Britain in the 20th Century, already the subject of various pop culture references, with their lives being made into a film back in 1990, led by Gary and Martin Kemp. Now the two brothers are getting the cinematic treatment once more, with production soon to commence on Paul Tanter’s take, The Rise of the Krays.

Details on the project are being kept under wraps for now, but the first teaser artwork has been released, and we can expect the film to chart the brothers’ rise to power to become the most notorious gangsters in London.

Tanter (The Rise and Fall of a White Collar Hooligan) is behind the camera, directing from his own script, with Simon Phillips (White Collar Hooligan) and Billy Murray (Rise of the Footsoldier) supporting.

No word yet on who will be taking the lead, but hopefully that will soon change with shooting set to start in the near future.

Before then, Tanter will be back in cinemas aplenty with He Who Dares, Shame the Devil, and The Disappearance of Lenka Wood all set to hit cinemas next year. Here’s to hoping that The Rise of the Krays will be added to the list, or perhaps early 2015.
